Moissanite at Rare Carat
Moissanite is now an option for engagement rings, and if you choose not to use a diamond this is your next best choice. Moissanite at Rare Carat is a popular stone to take the place of diamonds as it looks beautiful and is echo friendly and is much cheaper.
What is Moissanite?
Moissanite is a silicon carbide and a gemstone that looks like carbide, it is very hardy and strong in a ring making it a cost-effective alternative to a diamond. On the hard scale or Mohs Scale of Hardness, it rates around 9.25 combined with a resistance to scratching. Fortunately, the differences are not visually discernable to ordinary people, however, a jeweler will know immediately.
Moissanite has surfaces that reflect twice, giving the stone double the dazzle of the diamond. Moissanite does have some inclusions and the most commonly found inclusions are needles, often hollow tubes that run the length of the stone. Usually, they are only seen when magnification is used.
Advantages of Moissanite
You will get a really huge stone at a low price. It is good for the environment as there is no mining involved. Moissanite does not have a grading system, however, there are different qualities involved, as you would find with other gemstones, so look for a flawless stone. All jewelry-quality Moissanite is actually synthetic.

Princess Cut Diamond
If you are searching for a Princess Cut Diamond engagement ring, we have some interesting comparisons. The Princess Cut is a square modified brilliant in a rectangular shape. If you are looking for a 1-carat diamond it will cost about $5, 650 for a natural diamond, whereas a lab-grown diamond costs around $1,626, this is a saving of around $4,000, and the lab-grown diamond has all the properties of a natural diamond only grown in the lab.
Post Growth Treatment
Some of the lab-grown diamonds do have a slight blue tint, but you will hardly see it when the stone is set. The color is stable and it won’t change any further. But you may notice it in certain lighting. I find that this is beautiful as it makes your diamond unique. Some CVD diamonds come out of the lab with a faint brown or yellow tint, and HPHT or high-pressure high temperature is used to clean them and remove excess color.
Sometimes the HPHT lab-grown diamonds can be magnetic, but this just makes them more interesting.
