Moissanite rings are rings that feature a gemstone called moissanite as the centre stone or accent stones. Moissanite is a lab-created gemstone that was ﬁrst
discovered in 1893 by French chemist Henri Moissan. It is made from silicon carbide, which gives it a unique brilliance and ﬁre that is similar to, but not exactly the same as, a diamond. However, due to its rarity in nature, moissanite is primarily created in a lab today. The lab-grown moissanite is chemically and physically identical to natural moissanite, but it is more affordable and sustainable than diamonds or other mined gemstones.
It is composed of silicon carbide and is created in a lab using a process called the high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) method or the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method.
The HPHT method involves subjecting silicon carbide to high temperatures and
pressures to create a crystal structure similar to that of a diamond. The …
