Moissanite Facts

  • Moissanite is a gemstone in its own right, not a diamond simulation or alternative.
  • All moissanite used in jewelry today is lab created. Large qualities of the gemstone are rarely found in nature. Dr. Henri Moissan, a Nobel Prize winner, first discovered minute quantities of this mineral nearly a century ago in an ancient meteorite that fell to earth in Arizona. Created moissanite is silicon carbide formed as a single crystal.
  • Forever One Moissanite faces up colorless, and closely mimics the appearance of colorless or near colorless diamond.
  • It ranks very high on the Mohs scale of hardness at a 9.25. This makes it a durable gemstone that is suitable for everyday jewelry, such as an engagement ring.
  • Moissanite is available in many carat sizes and cut shapes. Our current cut options include round, cushion, princess, radiant, oval, pear emerald and asscher shapes.
  • Moissanite gemstones have a brilliance, hardness, and dispersion unlike any other lab created gemstone currently available.
  • A higher dispersion rate allows moissanite to emit more color and light flashes than it diamond counterpart.
  • Lab created moissanite is close to flawless with no visible inclusions.

Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrating her Sapphire Jubilee this upcoming Monday to mark 65 years on the British throne. The Queen will be the first British monarch to reach a sapphire jubilee; already becoming the United Kingdom’s longest reigning monarch in 2015. Few British monarchs have surpassed their golden jubilee celebration, which marks 50 years.

A famed portrait of the queen taken by renowned photographer David Bailey was reissued to honor the anniversary. In the photograph she wears a suite of sapphire jewelry gifted by her father King George VI as a wedding present in 1947. The set includes a necklace featuring 16 blue sapphires surrounded by diamonds with drop earrings to match. The Queen also commissioned a matching tiara and bracelet in 1963 to complete the suite.

With this inspiration at the forefront, Knox Jewelers would be overjoyed to assist you in custom creating sapphire jewelry fit for a queen. We have several loose blue sapphires available, in many sizes and shapes, just waiting to be fit into a beautiful custom jewelry piece. Draw inspiration from the royal suite and pair dazzling diamond halos framing your perfect blue sapphire for a regal look. We have several sapphire halo designs featured on our website that can be altered to your specification, or we could start anew with a sketch and bring your perfect sapphire jewelry to life. Contact us today to get started on your one-of-a-kind royal sapphire jewelry. You are sure to feel like a queen with deep blue sapphires set into your perfect custom setting!
