IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD A QUALITY DIAMOND BUY MOISSANITE INSTEAD
BUY MOISSANITE INSTEAD
Hello everyone if you can't afford a "QUALITY DIAMOND" buy Moissanite instead, due to the fact that Moissanite has twice the fire of a natural diamond and has all of the physical characteristics of a natural diamonds, so yes Moissanite "WILL TEST AS A NATURAL DIAMOND THOUGH IT'S NOT ONE".
Moissanite is second to a natural diamond in hardness with a natural diamond having a hardness of 10 Moissanite has a hardness of 9.25 so it's a durable jewel to wear everyday. As for the quality & cost of Moissanite here's an example: Moissanite's quality is I-J color, VS clarity so if you were to be looking to buy a 1ct natural diamond within this quality you'd be looking to spend between $3700 to $4500 but for a 1ct Moissanite it retails for $807 and it has twice the fire of a natural diamond for alot less.
I added a photo to this hub of a 3ct Moissanite & Diamond ring set in "PLATINUM" that i designed and had made for a client. The center stone is a 3ct Moissanite and the surrounding natural diamonds have a total carat weight of 1ct. My client wanted a 3ct natural diamond but couldn't afford to purchase one, so i introduced her and her boyfriend to a 3ct Moissanite jewel, and today she's still loving this ring because it didn't even cost her over $6000 to own.
I wanted to also add 2 other helpful photos to my hub for you to make an informed decision to buy Moissanite over a natural diamond as well, i added a "MOISSANITE vs ALL OTHER GEMS COMPARISON CHART" and i also added a "1CT MOISSANITE vs A 1CT NATURAL DIAMOND IN THE LIGHT DISPERSION TEST."
