Despite one of the happiest industries being hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak, brides and grooms around the world have continued to pop the question and walk down the (albeit virtual) aisle, and the team at Moissy Fine Jewellery want to ensure this trend continues!
It goes without saying that budgets have been tightened as a result of the uncertainty, but that doesn’t mean the sparkle of a dream wedding needs to fade. Moissy Fine Jewellery brings the latest bridal trend in the industry – moissanite engagement and wedding rings – at an affordable price.
For the ethically and eco-conscious brides and grooms out there, non-traditional – including lab-created diamonds – are increasing in popularity and moissanite is quickly gaining traction among this predominantly millennial generation.
So what exactly is moissanite, I hear you ask?
Moissanite is a naturally occurring gemstone that is created in a lab, which means it has significantly less environmental impact than diamonds do. It’s high refractive index (sparkle, to you and I) is higher than any other gemstone on the market and is the second hardest.
Costing 80-90% less than a traditional diamond, moissanite still tests like a diamond in that it is guaranteed to never cloud or change colour and for the eco-friendly bride who wants to cut down on her carbon footprint, moissanite is the perfect alternative.
