There are two secrets about Moissanite that are well worth keeping. One, it looks and tests like a diamond and, two, it costs a fraction of the price!
Francois Jewellers is the proud stockist of Evermore Moissanite which offers clients a further two unique benefits.
Yet another bonus is that in the event of loss or theft, your Evermore Moissanite purchase will be blacklisted on the database, effectively preventing the stone from being registered by a third-party.
Cost and Clarity
The average price for a 1-carat diamond ring in South Africa is R115,000. On the other hand, a Moissanite engagement ring, both similar in size and clarity, can cost you up to 90% less!
Francois Jewellers Evermore Moissanite range is available in three different colour spectrums:
Radiant stones appear colourless to the naked eye. Only an experienced gemologist can detect a colour difference. These stones are suitable for setting in all metals – Palladium, Platinum, Rose Gold, Yellow and White Gold.
The Brilliance range is also suitable for all metals – Yellow Gold, Rose Gold, White Gold, Platinum and Palladium.
Classic Moissanite stones appear almost colourless when set in Yellow Gold. Classic stones can also be set in Rose Gold, as well as being suitable for other metal types. These are best discussed with your experienced Francois Jeweller manufacturer.
Moissanite Tests Positive as a Diamond
As mentioned earlier, Moissanite’s properties are so similar to Diamonds that special tests have to be conducted to ascertain the difference. Moissanite will always test positive as a Diamond unless gemmologists:
If you are investigating all possible avenues for the purchase of an engagement ring, Moissanite must be one of your top choices. While it is often far more expensive than Cubic Zirconia, there is no comparison when it comes to quality differences. Zirconias are much softer, making them susceptible to scratches and abrasion. These stones also lose their lustre over time. Moissanite, on the other hand, is one of earth’s toughest and hardest elements and is substantially cheaper than Diamonds.
