Moissanite is an extremely rare mineral with even more fire and brilliance than diamonds. Moissanite rings, especially engagement rings or cocktail rings, make for superb gifts for a friend or loved one. Round and princess cut moissanite engagement rings are especially sharp looking. Like diamonds, some stones may look slightly yellow, but they can undergo a treatment to have a clear look. They have a Mohs hardness of 9.25, only a bit less than diamonds. Moissanite was discovered by French Nobel Prize winner Dr. Henri Moissan in a meteor in 1893, and jewelers Charles & Colvard synthesized it as a diamond alternative in 1998. Since moissanite is about 13 percent less dense than diamonds, and most jewelry is identifiable by carat weight, the company provides the size of all moissanites in millimeters as well as the weight the same stone would be in carats. Moissanite halo rings have a "halo" of stones around the main stone to make it look even more beautiful.
