So what can we take from this comparison?

Purchasing a gemstone for your engagement ring is a big deal! You are investing a lot of money into it, and you would expect it to last a lifetime. It needs to endure everyday wear and tear and sparkle for a lifetime. To ensure this, we strongly recommend that you avoid purchasing unbranded moissanite.

1. While some jewellers will say their stones are D colour and VVS1 clarity, more often than not they are selling you a lower quality stone without you knowing. When purchasing from a reputable moissanite brand, like Radiant Beauty™, you can be sure that you are getting exactly what you pay for.

2. Some jewellers will provide their own certificates of authenticity however this is not 100% proof of a stone's quality, as there is no party actually grading the stones. It’s merely just the jeweller creating a certificate to look like it has been graded. Look for a stone that comes with the moissanite brand's own certificate of authenticity, confirming its actual properties.

Unbranded moissanite can be found everywhere, especially online. It can be overwhelming when searching for a high-quality stone and, at times, it is hard to know exactly what you’re purchasing. This is why we always advise buying branded moissanite, like Radiant Beauty™, from an authorised jeweller (like us!). Radiant Beauty™ gives you a unique authenticity card, with a unique number confirming your exact stone. Each Radiant Beauty™ Moissanite is graded and verified by an expert gemologist so you can be sure that it is of the highest quality.

When you purchase a high-quality moissanite stone, you can be confident that your piece sparkle for a lifetime!

Yes. Due to its similar properties to diamonds (both lab grown and mined or natural diamond rings), moissanite can pass a diamond tester. However, our specialised equipment can distinguish between moissanite and diamonds, ensuring you know exactly what you're purchasing.

Moissanite is not a fake diamond but a gemstone that offers stunning lab grown beauty. It's perfect for those looking for the same level of sparkle and clarity found in diamonds, but at a more accessible price point.

Absolutely not! Due to its diamond-like appearance, many people believe the misconception that moissanite is a fake diamond when it is in fact a high quality, beautiful gemstone in its own right. Moissanite is becoming an increasingly popular choice of stone in engagement rings due to its dazzling beauty, durability, ease of customisation and affordability.

No, moissanite rings are crafted to exhibit a sparkle that, to the naked eye, is akin to that of diamonds. They offer timeless beauty and are an aesthetically identical choice for those who admire the appearance of mined diamonds. Read more
