Moissanite Engagement Rings

Moissanite has been on the jewelry market for about fifteen years now, but recently it has started to gain popularity as an alternative to diamond engagement rings.  There are lots of benefits to purchasing moissanite instead of the traditional diamond: it is practically identical to diamonds, it is much more affordable, it doesn't come with some of the ethical issues that diamonds do, and it is almost the same consistency as diamonds (it's about .5 lower on the hardness scale).  I had never heard of moissanite until my friend Sara told me about it.  When I saw her ring and how beautiful it was, I was convinced!  If you (or someone you know...wink, wink) are in the market for an engagement ring, consider moissanite as an option.  Here are just a few stunning samples of the gem!  (Click pic for original source, all pics via Pinterest.)
