Elegant Blue Mossanite

Elegant Blue Mossanite Ideas You Will Love!

Brilliance, fire, and an elegant hue. No, I’m not talking about a diamond but a much more affordable gemstone that’s sure to give you a unique look for a fraction of the price. Now’s the time to embrace elegance with emerging ideas for blue moissanite necklaces, bracelets, and rings. 

While data from the National Jeweler suggests that 85 to 90 percent of engagement rings are diamonds, that still points to a growing number of rings that are diamond alternatives. For one Michigan couple, that meant a blue moissanite ring. 

Shying away from convention and embracing love in times of uncertainty, Michael Schomisch and Kristine Crummel were engaged at a hotel, where Michael proposed not with a halo diamond ring but a gorgeous blue moissanite ring.

In light of the pandemic, the couples exchanged vows in a small ceremony in a sculpture park after postponing their wedding date two times. The blue moissanite ring looked spectacular paired with the bride’s unique wedding dress. The dress featured a lace top and a cobalt blue high to a low skirt, proving beautiful doesn’t have to be conventional.

But whether you’re looking for a diamond engagement ring alternative or just a beautiful and durable piece of jewelry, it’s time to consider blue moissanite. I’ll tell you how to find the best blue moissanite and give you my ideas for truly elegant necklaces, rings, and bracelets. 

What is Moissanite? 


Moissanite is more prevalent than ever, but many still don’t understand what it is or get it mixed up with cubic zirconia. But there’s a reason why it’s become more popular, and why it’s so eye-catching. 

Is Moissanite a Crystal?

While cubic zirconia is a synthetic material, moissanite is a naturally occurring crystal. Moissanite is a form of silicon carbide and was first discovered in Arizona as a derivative of meteorite. 

Is Moissanite Lab-Grown?

Moissanite may naturally occur – but it’s quite rare. As such, nearly all moissanite on the market is lab-grown. This is important to distinguish between the term “lab-created.” Lab-created, or man-made, usually describes a stimulant. Lab-grown moissanite is not as valuable as natural moissanite. Still, it shares the same chemical and physical properties and thus can be just as durable and beautiful. 

Why is Moissanite so Popular?

Moissanite is affordable compared to diamonds and other gemstones, such as emeralds or rubies. It’s also known for its fire and brilliance, as well as its durability. Of course, it’s not the same as a diamond, even though clear moissanite is sometimes sought as a diamond alternative. 

Is Moissanite as Good as a Diamond?

If you have your eyes set on blue moissanite, chances are you don’t expect it to be the same as a diamond. But if you are considering blue moissanite over diamonds– for a ring or other jewelry– it’s important to understand that, despite first impressions, the two are certainly different. 

Can You Tell Moissanite From a Diamond?

While clear moissanite looks like a diamond from a distance, you’ll notice a difference when the two are held up in the light. Diamonds have single refraction, while moissanite features double refraction. While diamonds flash white light, moissanite sparkles rainbow. This effect is more noticeable the larger the carat weight. 

Is Moissanite Prettier Than Diamonds?

This is honestly a matter of personal preference. Moissanite is more brilliant with more obvious fire than the average diamond– but it’s also a different form of brilliance. Many prefer the clean sparkle of a diamond, while others prefer the rainbow array of light-emitting from moissanite.

Is Moissanite Cheaper than Diamonds?

Moissanite is cheaper than diamonds by as much as 80 to 90 percent. By comparison, a nearly alternative, moissanite, is considered durable. 

Does moissanite get cloudy? colorless diamonds with very slight inclusions average a little over $4,000 per carat. Forever One Moissanite, the highest quality of colorless moissanite on the market, averages $500 to $600 per carat. 

Which is Better: Moissanite or Lab-Created Diamonds?

Lab-created diamonds share the same physical properties as natural diamonds– they’re just less valuable and more affordable. See the chart below for the same differences between diamonds vs moissanite.

Moissanite Diamonds
Mostly Lab Grown (Natural= Very Rare) Natural or Lab Grown
Double Refraction/ Rainbow Light  Single Refraction/ White Light
Mohs Hardness 9.25 to 9.5  Mohs Hardness 10 
Average $500-$600/ carat Average $4,000/ carat (Colorless)

Will Blue Moissanite Hold its Value?

Blue Moissanite

If you love the look of blue moissanite, it’s important to keep in mind the pros and cons of durability– some of which are determined by your care and treatment. Moissanite of any color simply doesn’t have value to the extent you’d consider it an investment. The good news is that, when treated well, moissanite of all colors tends to hold its original value. 

Will Moissanite Last Forever?

Any gemstone or crystal isn’t guaranteed to last forever. However, compared with most diamond alternatives, it’s considered quite durable. 

Does Moissanite Scratch Easily?

With a Mohs hardness of 9.25 to 9.5, moissanite is second only to a diamond in terms of how hard it is to scratch. You won’t get scratches from everyday use, meaning you can wear moissanite every day. Moissanite is strong enough to scratch glass and is nearly impossible to scratch just with regular wear. 

Does Moissanite Crack Under Heat?

Another great thing about moissanite is its extraordinary ability to hold up under heat. You don’t need to worry about temperature fluctuations, as moissanite is quite stable. Moissanite withstands up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, so no need to worry about leaving it in a hot car by accident. 

Does Moissanite Lose its Sparkle?

Unlike many diamond alternatives, Moissanite will not become cloudy and lose its clarity, nor will it lose its brilliance or sparkle. However, regular and proper cleaning may be needed to retain its appearance. 

How do You Look After Moissanite?

Luckily, moissanite is fairly easy to care for. A little common sense and knowledge go a long way in protecting your elegant blue moissanite jewelry. 

Can I Wash My Hands with my Moissanite Ring/Bracelet On?

Washing your hands with moissanite jewelry isn’t a big concern, as moissanite isn’t damaged by mild hand soap or water. However, perfumes and lotions can cause build-up. While this can be removed with professional cleaning, try not to directly apply perfumes or lotions directly on moissanite jewelry.  

Can I Shower With my Moissanite Ring?

Again, mild soap and water shouldn’t damage moissanite. The biggest risk is some build-up from shampoos. The only other thing to keep in mind is your metal type. Sterling silver and base metals, such as copper or brass, can tarnish with water immersion, so I’d remove those before showering and dry your hands thoroughly after washing in the sink. 

What Can Chip Moissanite?

It’s quite hard to chip moissanite with daily wear, but it is possible. A contact sport and a hard collision can chip moissanite–it’s simply not something you typically need to worry much about. 

Can Moissanite Go in an Ultrasonic Cleaner?

Many professional jewelers use ultrasonic cleaners for a deeper clean for moissanite. It still likely makes the most sense to bring your moissanite jewelry in for a deep clean. I recommend having it professionally cleaned once or twice a year for a ring. 

Can you Clean Moissanite with Rubbing Alcohol?

Rubbing alcohol normally can be used on gemstones and crystals, but you need to be careful. If you’re using it, dab just a little with a soft cloth and then wipe away when you’re finished. That said, it’s not the best way or usually necessary. I recommend using a soft cloth, lukewarm water, and mild soap if needed. 

What Can Ruin Moissanite?

You do want to avoid heavy cleaning agents, including bleach. I also wouldn’t swim with moissanite, as chlorine can impact its quality and durability. 

How do I Select the Best Blue Moissanite? 

Blue Moissanite Earrings

Blue moissanite can be truly elegant. But it’s also hard to find. The truth is that most moissanite on the market is clear or white– but that doesn’t mean you can’t find blue moissanite. Here are my selection criteria for moissanite color and quality.

What is the Highest Quality Moissanite?

For the finest moissanite, color, cut, and clarity come into play- like diamonds but on a different scale. The most valuable quality of moissanite is colorless, followed by nearly colorless. The colorless moissanite is the one that looks most like a diamond. Forever One Moissanite is considered to offer the highest quality.

  After that, moissanite has a slightly yellow hue or is a different color entirely. Thus, the best color grade is colorless. Still, colored moissanite is judged differently, with an even greater emphasis on clarity and cut. 

Can Moissanite be Colored?

While moissanite may be most prized for its clear hue, it comes in a variety of colors. These include: black, pink, orange-red, crimson, champagne, lime green, olive green, lavender, violet, amethyst, brown, green, and various shades of blue. 

Can Moissanite be Blue?

Moissanite can indeed be blue, from icy blue to aquamarine to a cobalt blue. I most commonly;y see a lighter blue. It’s a matter of personal preference if you’re opting for a colored vs colorless, so I recommend focusing on cut and clarity after you’ve spotted a color that suits you. Colors that you should consider include: icy blue, baby blue, cobalt blue, blue-green,  cyan blue, and sapphire blue. 

What is Moissanite Fire?

Fire is the way light reacts with moissanite. This is why you need to pay close attention to the quality of the blue moissanite you’re selecting.

What is the Clarity of Moissanite?

I’d look for moissanite that is labeled for clarity, and VS is fairly typical. There are very slight inclusions at this level that can be seen at 10 times magnification, and the clarity is still beautiful. However, you can find some at VVS clarity. 

Which cut is Best for Moissanite?

If you’re buying a ring, look for an excellent quality cut. Like diamonds, a round cut is considered best for brilliance. Still, other great cuts include hearts and arrows cut, cushion cut, oval cut, princess cut, radiant cut, pear cut, emerald cut, baguette cut, and Asscher cut. 

Elegant Moissanite Jewelry: My Criteria 

Here are my ideas for elegant blue moissanite earrings, engagement rings, bracelets, and necklaces. My criteria include: 

  • A beautiful blue hue that’s evenly dispersed 
  • Only genuine lab-grown moissanite 
  • Highly rated seller
  • Listed details, such as clarity and cut
  • Beautiful craftsmanship 

By using these criteria, you can be sure that you’re buying elegant moissanite that’s genuine, sparkles, and is of a reputable quality. Due to my criteria and the relatively small selection of blue moissanite available, I was a little more lenient with metal types. I included some sterling silver for fashion and statement jewelry. Sterling silver should be stored in a cool, dark place that’s dry, and you shouldn’t wear it in water to limit tarnishing. In cases of tarnish, take to a professional cleaner’s or buy a tarnish remover

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Is Moissanite More Expensive than White Sapphire?

Answer: Moissanite may be more affordable than diamonds, but it’s also more expensive than a white sapphire. White sapphire has white sparkle, while moissanite has rainbow sparkle. White sapphire is slightly softer (9 Mohs hardness). For more information, read about the main differences between moissanite vs white sapphire

Question: Is moissanite good for an engagement ring?

Answer: Moissanite is a reasonable choice for an engagement ring. It’s cost-effective compared with a diamond and nearly as durable, with exquisite brilliance and fire. Moissanite can be cut and shaped like a diamond as well. The larger the carat size, the more noticeable the rainbow scintillation. 

Question: Does Moissanite Shine in the Dark?

Answer: You may be able to notice a slight luster in the dark from moissanite, with a rainbow fluorescence. 

Question: Is Moissanite Better Than Morganite?

Answer: Morganite is another diamond ring alternative. Like moissanite, it’s cheaper than a diamond, but it’s quite different in many ways. Morganite ranges from pink to salmon, vs the clear to the white appearance of moissanite. While morganite is around half the price of moissanite, it’s also far softer, with a hardness rating of 7.5 vs 9.25. Read about moissanite vs morganite here

Question: Is Cubic Zirconia Better Than Moissanite?

Answer: Another common comparison is cubic zirconia vs moissanite. Cubic zirconia is not naturally occurring, like moissanite, nor lab-grown. Cubic zirconia is manufactured and not as durable, with a hardness rating of 8 to 8.5 vs 9 to 9.5.
Moissanite is far more brilliant and has more fire, as the refractive index of moissanite is 25 percent higher. Moissanite is considered more beautiful and durable but also far more expensive than cubic zirconia.
