They make a great diamond alternative because they are white gems, have lots of sparkle, come in a variety of sizes/shapes and affordably priced. Watch this video comparing moissanite to diamond as well as different #moissanite qualities and read an excerpt from our blog (full article available by clicking link in bio) Price Moissanites cost a fraction of what an actual diamond will cost e.g a 1 carat moissanite can cost $650 depending on quality whereas a 1 carat GIA diamond starts around $5000. Durability Moissanites have a score of 9.25 and are almost as hard as a diamond which comes in at 10 on the mohs scale. Sparkle & Fire From the video you can notice that the moissanite gives off more fire and spectral colors than a diamond.
