Moissanite: an affordable alternative to diamonds

Moissanite is a man-made stone that has gained popularity in recent years due to its exceptional brilliance, affordability and eco-friendliness. This stone offers an attractive alternative to natural diamonds and has many advantages, both from an aesthetic and durable point of view. In this article, we will explore the different facets of moissanite.

An affordable alternative to natural diamonds

Moissanite is considered an affordable alternative to natural diamonds due to its more attractive price. It is created in the laboratory, which allows control of its production and lower costs compared to diamonds mined from the earth. This affordability paves the way for new possibilities for jewelry lovers looking for statement pieces without compromising their budget.

The remarkable brilliance of moissanite

Moissanite is distinguished by its remarkable brilliance. It has exceptional optical dispersion, which means it breaks up light dramatically, creating a sparkling play of color. This unique characteristic gives moissanite a brilliance that rivals that of diamonds.

The eco-responsible aspect of moissanite

The production of moissanite in the laboratory is a more environmentally friendly alternative to diamond mining. Diamond mining can cause significant ecological damage, such as the destruction of natural habitats and excessive water consumption. By opting for moissanite, you are helping to reduce your ecological footprint while maintaining the beauty and brilliance of a precious stone.

Price comparison: natural diamond vs moissanite

When it comes to choosing a gemstone, price is often a determining factor. Natural diamonds are generally more expensive due to their rarity and high demand. Their price is also influenced by factors such as the 4Cs (weight (carat), color (color), purity (clarity) and size (cut)). On the other hand, laboratory diamonds are created by reproducing the conditions natural diamond formation, but in a controlled laboratory environment. They offer a more affordable alternative to natural diamonds while maintaining their optical and physical characteristics.

Price of a natural diamond:

  • A quality 0.50 carat diamond can cost around CAD$2,000 to CAD$5,000.
  • A quality 1 carat diamond can cost between CAD$10,000 and CAD$20,000.
  • Larger and better quality diamonds can fetch considerably higher prices, ranging from several thousand to millions of dollars, depending on the individual characteristics of each diamond.

Price of a moissanite:

  • A quality 0.50 carat moissanite can cost around CAD$200 to CAD$400.
  • A quality 1 carat moissanite can cost between 400$CAD and 800$CAD.
  • Larger sized moissanites can cost proportionally more, but they are generally still much cheaper than natural diamonds of equivalent size.

It is important to note that these prices are indicative only and may vary depending on many factors, such as the specific quality of the stone, the seller, the geographical region and market fluctuations.
