They say that diamonds are a girl's best friend. They are one of the most beautiful and costly gems available today. However, it can be a jewel that could take its place. In the late 1990's moissanite came on the scene and has a world of sensations around the jewelry. What is this jewel, and how it works compared to diamonds right? Let's take a look at the differences.
Cut – refers to a jewel of geometrical dimensions, as has been cut. If a stone is cut, facets are created, to bring out brilliance. In addition, they are cut to maintain weight in the first place and that is why you see a variety of cuts all in the same diamond shape. The scoring system used to determine the cut of a stone are perfect, very good, good, fair and poor.
Cut – Moissantie stones are cut to exact angles and proportionsa method of computer simulation. As a result, a grading scale is not necessary since they are specifically designed to maximize brilliance. In contrast to fine diamonds, which are isometric, moissanite is hexagonal, which means it is birefringent. A closer examination of the gem, with two facet edges, while a diamond-cut edges are singular phenomenon.
If these factors are taken into account all seem fine and moissanite diamonds are almost identical. Both are light-colored stones that emit a bright fire. So, what should I buy? While it is important, it is really a matter of individual choice.
