First of all, moissanite first attracted the attention of the public because its appearance is very similar to that of diamonds. The properties of the two gemstones are almost the same. The refractive index of moissanite and diamonds is similar, the luster is higher than that of diamonds, and the Mohs hardness is 9.25. Compared with diamonds, it is a little lower, but the fire color divergence has reached an astonishing 0.104, which is twice as much as that of diamonds. It deserves to be the most shining jewelry gemstone in the world.

The two are surprisingly similar in both attributes and appearance, and cannot be distinguished if not using professional instruments in jewelry appraisal work.

Second, although moissanite is very similar to diamonds, the price of moissanite is less than one-tenth of the price of diamonds because it is a cultivated gemstone. A natural diamond of ordinary color costs is no less than $4000 per carat, while the price of moissanite one carat ranges from $400 to $500. According to gem experts, diamonds with a D color below 5 carats on the market do not have a value of preservation. Therefore, in the case that the two have the same appearance but also do not hold their value, buying a one-carat Moissanite can save more than $3000.
The saved money can be used for more meaningful things, such as sending the newlywed wife a wonderful honeymoon vacation, or saving for the future education fund of the baby, etc., which is more in line with the low-carbon living standards in the minds of modern people.

Third, with the continuous invasion of Western fashion culture, many young people have different views on jewelry from the traditional thinking in the past. Most people think that the sense of design is more important than whether the material is natural or not—a piece of jewelry with a sense of design can reflect the owner’s good taste. Cultivated moissanite has a wide range of plasticity due to its quality controllability, so many classic moissanite jewelry styles have been born, such as moissanite ring, moissanite earrings and moissanite necklace etc., which are novel and fashionable, in line with modern youth people's pursuit.
