Moissanite Engagement Rings

Updated on January 27, 2013

Moissanite the Best Alternative to the Diamond Engagement Ring

On this page you'll find a selection of some of the most stylish engagement ring settings you can find online, all crafted with moissanite as the featured stone.

Did you know moissanites pair beautifully with a diamond setting? That they sparkle and have more fire than diamonds? That moissanite costs less but retains it's beauty just like diamond? Moissanite isn't just a diamond alternative, it out performs diamond in sparkle and fire!

You're here, so you probably already know the great qualities that moissanites possess, but if not go ahead and visit my other page Moissanite Vs. Diamond to learn some of the positive things deciding to go with moissanite in your engagement ring can offer.

Engagement is one of the most exciting times in one's life. Set the tone right by finding a beautiful Moissanite Engagement Ring to represent your love.

5-Stone with a Surprise Moissanite

7 MM (1.25 CT) Round $1,140

5 moissanites, what a lucky girl. Wait there's another surprise, a tiny moissanite right under the shank. The little surprise isn't all I like about this ring. The way the side stones are framed with a thin band of metal rather than prongs gives the overall feel of the ring a nice modern clean style.

This ring from Moissanite Co. is available in 14K or 18K gold or palladium (platinum's cooler cousin) settings.

Square Moissanite Double Prong Basket

5.5 MM (1.1 CT) Square $685

A classic basket solitaire with a twist. The double prongs update this look and show off the square cut moissanite. Some call this cut princess, but the moissanite is cut differently than a diamond princess, to better show off the incredible sparkle moissanites possess.

Beautiful Band of Sparkle - 6 MM Round Center & 5 MM sides (1 3/4 TCW) $799.99

This style of ring looks stunning on it's own making it a perfect upgrade anniversary ring, or bling out by pairing with a sparkling moissanite eternity band.

Round Brilliant Halo Moissanite

6.5 MM (1 CT) Round $1,065

Halos have become increasingly popular. I like how this style raises the center stone above the halo and adds detail on the side of the band to draw away from the heaviness the halo brings. Stunning.

Thin Pave Band Solitaire

6MM (1 CT) $1,050

This band is so thin it almost appears like the center moissanite is floating on a band of sparkle. The pave stones even go up the prongs and basket setting. Just lovely. Available in 14K & 18K gold as well as palladium.

Vintage Inspired Engraved Setting - .5CT Round $799.99

Smaller moissanite tends to be more believable if you are intending to pass the stone off as diamond. Moissanite has more sparkle and fire than a diamond, and the bigger the moissanite the more attention it draws. This vintage inspired setting is what will draw attention to this ring. The moissanite is just the icing.

Classic Trellis Solitaire

6.5MM (1CT) $765

A timeless classic style. The half eternity band compliments the main center stone beautifully. The trellis style basket turns the prongs a work of art.

Available in main stone sizes from .5CT to 4CT and 14K gold or palladium.

A Timeless Classic Solitaire - 6.5 MM Round (1 CT) $545

This simple style will stand the test of time. It is a nod to the classic solitaire from one well known brand. You can even find that famous packaging on eBay if you want to really pull off the classic look down to the box.

Cushion Channel Set Tapered Solitaire

1CT Cushion $1,050

Cushion cuts are gaining in popularity, but be warned they are a tad warmer than a round brilliant moissanite, but they still sparkle like mad. A tapered channel settings is extremely flattering to the hand and is a modern yet classic style wearable for years to come.

Bold Oval Moissanite - Oval Moissanite $2,021

A bold statement engagement ring set with a horizontal oval moissanite.

Princess Single Prong Half-Eternity

6MM (1CT) $965

What I like about this ring is the combination of the princess cut moissanite and the six round moissanites. The minimal prongs really show off each stones shape lending to an elegant mostly sparkle design. Nice!

Lovely Pears, a copy of Jessica Simpson's first e-ring

9x6MM (1.55CT) $899

This is one of the most copied celebrity engagement ring styles and here it is in lovely moissanite. Now the only pear moissanite I saw was at a jewelry store trunk show, it was a nice size like the one in this ring and it was incredibly yellow. I was commenting at how yellow it looked and the jeweler snatched it from the case and said it needed cleaning and it never came back. i don't know if all pears are like that, or if that pear was just a bad gem, but I do know the fancy shapes tend to hold more body color than round or square brilliant. Keep that in mind when shopping online for fancy shapes. There are beautiful ones to be had, but in case the on you get isn't, ensure they have a good return policy.

my hubby with the moissanite ring he selected for me

This is my cute hubby. He said I foiled his many elaborate attempts to propose that involved romance, candlelight and rose petals... so instead he felt the right moment was after I had a cavity filled, mouth still a little numb... and he was dripping in sweat from having just mowed the lawn. I guess it worked as I said yes and married the guy after all. Oh, and he choose a gorgeous moissanite engagement ring for me. Love ya Babe!

When is the perfect month to propose?

      Necklaces can be stored in jewelry boxes, travel cases and large boxes or chests specially designed for storing jewellery. A necklace tray lined with velvet protects your necklaces and provides enough space for storing large necklaces with lots of beads and gemstones. These trays come in a variety of colors and are not very expensive. They are based on stackable design, which means a number of necklaces can be stored in a single tray. Stacking jewellery trays also come with multiple compartments to keep chains and necklaces of different types in separate slots. These types of simple but useful trays are available for $13 a piece.
