Engaged

6 Mar

!!!Got engaged early this year. My ring is beyond amazing (just like my fiance). It is brilliant, full of fire, huge, blingy, and fun!

This stone is moissanite. Moissanite naturally occurs in meteors, but since meteors don’t frequently become meteorites, moissanite is too rare to mine. It is now made in labs. It is a great alternative to diamonds, as they are almost as hard, and have some similar qualities. It does have different refractive properties than a diamond. Moissanite people would argue it has a lot more fire than diamond. Diamond people will tend to be dismissive of this perspective, claiming that Moissanite has “too much” fire/brilliance, and looks like a disco ball. Funny thing about the diamond industry. They are always trying to charge you an arm and a leg for the most expensive, best quality diamond, with the least inclusions, because allegedly these stones will have the most “fire” and “brilliance” but when technology manages to create a rock with no inclusions, and maximized fire, the diamond industry snidely casts this stone as having too much shine and fire.

My particular ring has a 2 ct center stone, with two small stones on the side. The band is white gold. My fiance got it from Mossaniteco.com. The ring’s fantastic. I couldn’t be happier with this choice.

    Hi! I have a questions about your ring. Is your moissanite enhanced? I am considering changing my ring center stone to a moissanite. Thank you in advance

      It is not enhanced, but it is called “Mira” moissanite. It’s from moissaniteco.com. I love it!
