Does Moissanite Scratch Easily?
As a newly popular engagement ring option in Australia, the quality and longevity of Moissanite rings is often queried. We’re often asked: does Moissanite scratch easily?
Moissanite is a high-quality, genuine gemstone and will never scratch easily. Moissanite is comprised of the chemical compound silicon carbide (SiC), which is extremely durable, impermeable, and the perfect stone to last a lifetime as your engagement ring or wedding band.
Moissanite is also a much better option than other diamond alternatives such as cubic zirconia or crystal. While these stones can look similar, they don’t possess the quality required for long lasting jewellery. Moissanite is an extremely durable stone, measuring a 9.25 on the Mohs scale which assesses the hardness of a stone. Comparatively, a diamond is classified as a 10 on the Mohs scale, a cubic zirconia is approximately an 8 and crystal measures at approximately a 7.
We source our own, highest quality Moissanite, with the best colour and clarity and our highly skilled jewellers precisely cut your Moissanite stone to optimise the brilliance and enhance its natural beauty.
With everyday wear, you may notice your ring becomes less sparkly. But like any other jewellery, when taken care of properly and cleaned regularly, your Moissanite engagement ring will maintain its beautiful sparkle and shine forever.
