Diamond alternatives

 

A diamond is forever, and a diamond is a woman’s best friend. But a diamond is also pretty costly. So even if you love diamonds, it might not always be possible to spend a little fortune on buying a costly diamond. But those who wish to look good and stay ahead of the fashion race know that no look is complete without a trinket. So what is the honorable way out of this dilemma of whether to splurge money on a diamond and look good or save money and look ordinary without a stone adorning your look?

There is not one, but several good alternatives to wearing a diamond. These are in the form of gemstones which are costly themselves but not to the extent of diamonds. They have a great look and durability but they would be yours for far less. Gemstones like white sapphire, white topaz, cubic zirconia, garnet, spinel, and rutile are very popularly used as substitutes for diamond. The reason they work so well is because they have durability, hardness and the all-important dazzle quite similar to diamonds. Let us look into one such diamond substitute in greater detail.

This stone is called moissanite. Chemically speaking, it is composed of silicon carbide. For the purposes of making jewelry, moissanite is produced synthetically under laboratory conditions. The most unique characteristic of a diamond is its hardness, and with a score of 9.5 on the Mohs scale (out of a possible maximum of 10), moissanite stands right up there as a worthy substitute. On the other factor of brilliant dazzle, moissanite in fact score higher than a diamond, because its different physical structure allows it to sparkle in more colors.

Giliarto offers you great jewelry options using moissanite stone which would provide the durability and the dazzling brilliance of a diamond at much lesser costs.
