Moissanite is a rare, naturally occurring mineral also known as silicon carbide. Named after Nobel Prize-winning chemist Dr. Henri Moissan, moissanite was first discovered in 1893 at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. Moissanite is known for its high refractive index (RI) of 2.65, which is notably higher than diamond, sapphire, CZ, and other gemstones known to be very brilliant. (Brilliance is the flashes of white light exiting the top and sides of a gemstone) However, the natural quantities of moissanite are too small to create jewelry.
The jewel was created through a combination of science and art. These man made stones are chemically and physically identical to their mined counterpart and because they don’t require intensive mining, they don’t have the environmental impact. They offer an ethical and affordable alternative to the traditional diamond for the Bride or Groom who want to focus on slow fashion and sustainable processes.
This ring is also available in 9ct Yellow Gold or 9ct Rose Gold. Please contact before purchasing as prices will vary.
All our signets start off as a block of wax which is then carved out to the desired shape. Once the desired design has been achieved we use a process called the lost wax casting method where we make a mould of the wax ring and cast using recycled sterling silver. All our materials and processes are recycled and ethically sourced and aim to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.
