Valentine's Day is coming, and nothing says "I love you" quite like an amazing piece of jewelry. It's a staple of Valentine's Day for a reason. No matter their gender, no one ever says 'no' to jewelry - especially if it's jewelry they can wear guilt-free.
That's a problem these days, of course. We're all aware of how unethical the gemstone industry can be, and how many stones are tainted by the ways that they're made. No one wants to think that their happiness comes from someone else's suffering - and that's what makes moissanite jewelry such a great choice as a Valentine's Day gift!
If you're looking for an amazing type of gemstone that's 100% ethical, while also turning heads whenever you or your loved one wears it, read on!
Why Moissanite Jewelry Is Perfect As A Guilt-Free Gift
Moissanite is the trade name of silicon carbide, a naturally occurring stone first discovered in the early 19th Century. However, today's moissanite is created in laboratories, rather than being harvested. No one was exploited to create the moissanite you wear.
Moissanite is typically clear and pure, like a diamond - and in many ways, it's better than diamond! Moissanite has an even higher refractive index than diamond (2.691), which means that it's extra sparkly in the light. In addition, it also has a great fire dispersion index (0.104), which adds a rainbow sheen to its light refraction as well.
On top of that, moissanite is also extremely hard. It's not quite as hard as diamond, but it's the second-hardest gemstone commonly used in fashion. So, it can be worn daily without any fear of the stone being damaged. Moissanite jewelry is anytime jewelry.
Plus, moissanite is less expensive than diamond and other popular stones as well.
All this adds up to moissanite being a great, affordable, globally aware gemstone that anyone would love to receive - and without worrying about where it came from.
