Moissanite is a durable, brilliant gem that offers eye-catching fire at an affordable price. A mineral form of crystalline silicon carbide, moissanite takes its name from Henri Moissan, the scientist who discovered the gem in the late 19th century. Because natural moissanite is so rare, the gems must be created in a lab.
Giving off a breathtaking rainbow flash in natural lighting, these lab created gems put an unconventional twist on the traditional diamond engagement ring. They also look extraordinary in earrings and pendants. Because moissanites will never lose their exceptional sparkle, they can become meaningful heirloom jewelry.
