UNDERSTANDING MOISSANITE: MUST READ 🔸 Also known as ”the Earth’s most brilliant gem” - moissanite is quite literally not out of this world:) 🔸 Harder than emerald, ruby, or sapphire and more brilliant than diamond, moissanite is a gemstone unlike any other. Discovered in a meteorite crater and re-created by the innovators, this stunning stone is known worldwide as The World’s Most Brilliant Gem. With this gem’s hardness second only to diamond, it’s extremely resistant to scratching, abrasion, breaking, or chipping. Jewelry made with this gemstone will maintain its fire and brilliance and will never fade. Eco-friendly, conflict-free, and affordable, moissanite is truly the brilliant alternative to a diamond. 🔸 No One can distinguish between natural Diamond and Moissanite, because moissanite tests positive for a natural diamond when any conventional tester is used. - Natural Diamond Hardness is close to 10 and Moissanite Hardness is sometimes an amazing 9.5! Usually it is 9.25, but it is the strongest gemstone after diamond! - Brilliance/Refractive Index: 2.65 (Better than Mined Diamond's 2.42) Diamond & Moissanite maintains its clarity and sparkle throughout a lifetime. It will not fog up or change color and will last you a lifetime of joy! 🔸 It is really the best investment for something so important in your life - get the best that there is! It is still going to be cheaper than diamond and have more colors in its fire as well. 🔸 Moissanite is a humane, environmentally friendly and cruelty free alternative to a natural diamond which is forever going to be associated with the bloody history of human greed, cruelty of war, human suffering, death and the destruction of the environment which all are the unwanted side effects of the diamond mining.... 🔸 Moissanite revolutionized the conventional mostly diamond based bridal and engagement jewelry industry: this gemstone is absolutely amazing and it was brought to you by human ingenuity and progress - not by child slave labor like in the case with natural diamonds.By choosing moissanite over a diamond you don’t just save money, but you make a responsible decision to no longer support greed and injustice. ___________________Moissanite color change artifact I offer a wide selection of moissanite engagement ring sets with different moissanite colors and shades. Please use the existing listings from my shop to find a photo that best represents your preferred moissanite color and send me a few screenshots, so it is easier for me to really understand what you are looking for in a moissanite. However, please keep in mind that 🔸THE MOISSANITE MAY LOOK MORE INTENSE AND DARK ON THE PHOTOS THAN IN REAL LIFE AND VICE VERSA 🔸 THIS IS DUE TO THE OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF THE MOISSANITE AND NOT AT ALL DUE TO A DEFECT OR SUBSTANDARD QUALITY GRADE OF THIS GEMSTONE. So choose your moissanite color accordingly and contact me if you need help. Unfortunately, I cannot help much with this issue, because all videos and photos I take will have the same artifact as the listing images If they are taken under the same lighting conditions and viewed from the same angle. This "artifact" which is caused by the intrinsic property of this gemstone which for instance can make a moissanite appear extremely dark at a certain angle and when moved in a different lighting environment it would look much lighter as if it was a different stone. Or like I said it can be the other way around as well, so it is somewhat hard to predict what a moissanite will look like in a finished piece of jewelry in a particular setting that will inevitably influence the color of the gemstone depending on the metal color and a myriad of of other factors. Not all moissanite colors are extreme chameleons like that but some shades in particular have a really wide range of shades that might vary from the deepest and darkest gray to dark blue, purple or indigo to light grayish near white colored appearances that are hard to predict or capture on camera with adequate degree of accuracy of color representation. I started to work with moissanite this year and I find this particular trait quite interestin, but if someone is really crazy about certain color it might be disappointing to see it change so dramatically. Since photos and videos might occasionally not be the most reliable way to select your preferred moissanite color you might want to describe your preferred shade of moissanite in words in the personalization section, so I know if I should use a slightly lighter or slightly darker moissanite for your ring as a simpler way to convey your idea of the moissanite color. I will continue to observe and learn more about the moissanite properties and study its features and optical properties and what makes up each individual moissanite type change its colors more than others. ________________________________________________________________________ For the most part the photos of moissanite I have in my listings throughout the store are very reliable in describing the actual moissanite color that you will receive, so the color changes I am trying to describe here are more of an anomaly rather than a common rule for each moissanite color and each shade. ▪️MAJORITY OF MOISSANITE GEMSTONES ARE DESCRIBED ACCURATELY WITH THEIR ACTUAL COLOR BEING REPRESENTED IN LISTING PHOTOS TRUE TO THE ACTUAL COLOR IT HAS IN REAL LIFE ▪️_________________________________________________________ Drastic color change is a rare phenomenon when it comes to moissanite and is unlikely to affect whether you love the piece of jewelry you purchased or not. Most moissanite gemstones in various colors stay true to the same shade with minor variations in brightness or intensity____________________ ✅ QUALITY STANDARD FOR MOISSANITE JEWELRY: 🔸 I use my own brand of moissanite - Kissed By Fire Moissanite - professionally manufactured, carefully selected and graded - I do quality assurance check myself, so I can offer only the best quality grade moissanite you can buy almost on any budget and it comes with my personal quality assurance promise. 🔸 I source my moissanite stones directly from the manufacturer who specializes in producing very high quality grade genuine white moissanite for many jewelry stores including some well known jewelry retail chains.
