The Ultimate Guide to Moissanite: The Diamond Alternative


Diamonds have long been considered the ultimate symbol of luxury and romance. However, the emergence of Moissanite as a compelling alternative has been turning heads. In this ultimate guide, we'll explore why Moissanite is gaining ground as a popular choice for jewelry, especially for those looking for a more ethical and affordable option.

What is Moissanite?

Moissanite is a lab-grown gemstone that was first discovered in a meteor crater. It is almost as hard as diamonds and even more brilliant. Its composition is silicon carbide, making it a robust and durable option for jewelry.

The Ethical Advantage

One of the most significant advantages of Moissanite is that it is lab-grown, meaning no mining is involved. This ensures it is an ethical choice, devoid of the human and environmental issues associated with diamond mining.


Moissanite costs a fraction of the price of a diamond. This affordability opens the door for more elaborate designs and settings, allowing you to get a luxurious piece without breaking the bank.

GRA Certification: The Mark of Quality

Just like diamonds, Moissanites can also be GRA-certified. This certification assures you of the quality, authenticity, and ethical sourcing of the gemstone. At Lavishe Jewelry, all our Moissanites come with GRA certification for your peace of mind.

How to Choose Moissanite Jewelry

When choosing Moissanite jewelry, consider the 4 Cs—Carat, Cut, Color, and Clarity. These factors help determine the quality and value of the gemstone. Always opt for GRA-certified Moissanite to ensure you're getting the best.

Taking Care of Your Moissanite Jewelry

Moissanite is a durable gemstone but still requires proper care. Regular cleaning and professional checks will help maintain its brilliance and longevity.


Moissanite offers a compelling alternative to diamonds, with its ethical sourcing, affordability, and brilliant sparkle. If you're in the market for a luxurious yet responsible choice, Moissanite is worth considering.
