Moissanite and diamond are two different gemstones! While they look similar, there are ways to tell them apart. The biggest differences between moissanite vs diamond are amount of sparkle, cost, and reflection.
Diamonds vs Moissanite, Brilliance: Moissanite is actually Higher brilliant than a diamond! Brilliance, which refers to a stone's ability to reflect white light, is a good measure for how much a gemstone will'sparkle'.
Moissanite's brilliance is higher than diamond's due to its higher "refractive index" (Diamond's is 2.42, whereas Moissanite's is 2.65). This is a technical term for how much a gemstone bends light. Moissanite bends light a lot, meaning light bounces around more, giving it max sparkle! In addition, moissanite has a higher dispersion than a diamond, too. So, in addition to your moissanite giving off more white sparkle, it will actually reflect more colored sparkle ("fire"), too.In fact, your moissanite will look like a firework next to a diamond. Does Moissanite lose its sparkle?
Moissanite stays super sparkly for its whole life. Because of its superior hardness and great refractive index, Moissanite stands the test of time. Unlike a CZ (a less beautiful diamond simulant), you never have to worry about Moissanite becoming dull, losing its brilliance, or getting foggy.It will be beautiful and bright forever! Can you tell moissanite from diamond? Yes, if you look closely. Moissanite's extra bling and extra reflection can separate it from diamond. While diamonds have equal amounts of white and rainbow sparkle, Moissanite's rainbow sparkle exceeds its white brilliance.
Moissanite's unique double refraction can also separate it from diamond, if you know what to look for: Diamonds vs Moissanite, Reflection: Diamond is singly refractive, whereas Moissanite is doubly refractive. This means that if you look through the side of a Moissanite, you may see double!
In Forever One, this feature is not noticeable unless you know to look for it, and look very closely. It all depends on the local office. So better communicate for faster resolution to any disputes. Thank you for shopping with us!!
