Things to consider when shopping for and buying Moissanite jewelry
Probably the most important question to ask when shopping online for moissanite gemstone jewelry is whether you’re getting authentic Moissanite. This is a difficult question to answer with certainty. There are many unscrupulous jewelers online who are selling jewelry with lesser gemstones and calling it moissanite.
Here at Dovegg you get a numbered certificate of authenticity with every piece of moissanite jewelry we sell. All our moissanite gems come with a lifetime warranty. We do this because we only sell real moissanite and real moissanite lasts forever
Moissanite has more fire and brilliance than a diamond due to its higher refractive index and dispersion. Dispersion, or fire, is a property of a gemstone caused as light radiates through the gemstone on certain wavelengths. When shining a light over moissanite it will produce a wider color spectrum than a diamond. The brilliance of a moissanite gemstone refers to its “sparkle.” Moissanite is exceptionally brilliant due to its remarkably high refractive index, which describes how light spreads through the gemstone. In fact, moissanite is 10% more brilliant than diamond!
Using a jeweler’s loupe for magnification, moissanite can be identified by the doubling of junction facets. Facets are flat surfaces cut into gemstones in order to best reflect light, and facet junctions are where these surfaces meet.
Your local jeweler has tools that if used properly can verify the identity of the gem. These tools test the electrical conductivity of the material. There are a few moissanite testers on the market that can identify moissanite, diamond and white sapphire in one simultaneous test.
