Which moissanite is right for me?

Forever Ring is a private Toronto moissanite jeweler specializing in fine moissanite engagement rings. If you are like most of my clients, you may have only discovered moissanite when you began thinking about your engagement. Don't worry, I'm here to help!

Forever Ring was inspired by my decision to choose moissanite over diamonds for my own engagement ring. 

Moissanite, also known as silicon carbide, is an exceedingly rare naturally occurring mineral known for its unique fire and brilliance. It was first discovered by Henri Moissan while examining rock samples in a meteor impact zone in Arizona in 1893 and was referred to as "space diamonds". 

Because of its rarity, all moissanite used in jewelry is sustainably lab-grown to perfection. Moissanite is available in every shape and size imaginable from less than 0.3 ct round brilliants to 10+ ct fancy cut stones.

Forever Ring offers Charles and Colvard Forever One, NEO Moissanite, as well as Harro Gem, and Forever Ring Moissanite by default.

So which should you choose?

Charles and Colvard (C&C) pioneered the creation of moissanite for the jewelry industry. C&C stones are available in a growing range of fancy cuts in the colorless and near-colorless range. Of all the moissanite on the market, C&C offers a slight clarity advantage. However, it is the most expensive brand.

Harro Gem offers a wide range of moissanite stone shapes and sizes in the colorless (EF) range. Notably, Harro Gem offers OEC and antique cuts. Custom cuts are also available.

Neo moissanite, like C&C, has a good range of standard and fancy shapes in the colorless and near-colorless range. We recommend Neo to clients who are are on a tight budget and are specifically looking for a beautiful near-colorless moissanite.
