Moissanite? Yes!

Moissanite? Yes!

We love moissanite for many reasons. It is gorgeous and more sparkly than diamonds. It is a sustainable, and conflict-free gemstone. (Let’s be clear, though, that all of Crystal Realm’s earth-sourced diamonds are conflict-free and ethically mined.) And they are affordable, especially when you get into the larger stones when compared with diamonds. 

Moissanite is a rare mineral found in nature, but the company that creates moissanite today does so in a lab. Each gemstone is artfully crafted, is socially responsible, and is eternally brilliant!

We can make any engagement puzzle ring on our site that is shown with a faceted stone with moissanite. Currently, we have only a few moissanite rings listed in our store – under colored-gemstones, as that is also where lab-created colored gemstones are found. So until we get a dedicated moissanite section on our site, please feel free to email or call Mandira at 1-866-573-7381 with your needs.

Great news! We were under the impression that marquise moissanites had been discontinued by their maker, but that is not the case. So we can use marquise, princess-cut, and round moissanite, as pictured in rings on our site. We can also use Asscher, cushion cut, and square (step-cut) stones. 

Here are examples of rings and moissanite shapes. Please note we make all of our engagement puzzle rings in all metals: 14K white, rose, yellow gold, and four colors of 14K gold; palladium (an affordable platinum family metal); and platinum. Many of our clients order platinum moissanite rings, because they save on the gemstone and splurge on the metal. We also offer any combination of these metals that you wish to have.

Another note: usually the sellers of moissanite publish either the carat weight or the millimeter size, but not both. One seller we don’t often buy from states only the carat weight. The seller we are able to get better prices from publishes the millimeter size. I know how to cross-reference some but not all of the sizes and shapes yet.

1CT range marquise diamond puzzle ring with optional diamond claddagh band

0.93CT marquise puzzle ring with optional claddagh
shadow band. The comparable
marquise moissanite ring
would be exactly 1CT, and the puzzle ring alone would
be about $2,200 in any precious metal ($3,500 in platinum),
compared with over $8,000 for a diamond ring. The claddagh
band or one that is very like it, as each shadow band is
a one-off original, is approximately $2,100 with two
0.06CT round moissanites in the cuffs.

Please call 1-866-573-7381 for further pricing on moissanite rings. As mentioned, you can select any engagement puzzle ring on our site, and we will make it in moissanite for you, in the precious metal or metals you want, with the size of moissanite you want, subject to availability. Sorry, we cannot do sterling silver with faceted stones. Sterling silver is not strong enough in a puzzle ring to bear a faceted stone with the setting it needs. Sterling silver will wear out far too quickly to justify the price we’d have to charge you, because most of the cost of our puzzle rings is in the labor and the stone.
