About Our Moissanite Earrings

Our moissanite earrings are hypoallergenic, made from sterling silver plus rhodium platinum plating, which is more expensive and lasts longer than 18K gold. 

Our earrings have a secure screw back backing to stay securely on your ear. In addition, because you can tighten the screw back as much as necessary, it helps prop the earrings up and sit beautifully on the earlobe (perfect for those that might have slightly droopy/stretched holes).

Our moissanite earrings have a sterling silver base that is rhodium plated with FIVE layers. This allows it to shine brighter and provides long-lasting anti-tarnish protection.

It’s almost impossible to tell the difference between a diamond and a moissanite to the naked eye. Allurii gems are Color D “Brightest White” which looks similar to the color of a diamond and sparkles beautifully.

Quality and Care of Moissanite

Moissanite was discovered by French Scientist Henri Moissan in 1893 from a crater that had scant shiny particles on it. Since the moissanite particles were few, scientists found a way to use silicone carbide crystals with a similar chemical makeup and turn them into moissanite.

Moissanite gemstones are durable enough to wear daily, ranking 9.25 on the Mohs scale for hardness. With proper cleaning and care, moissanites can last for years to come.

Our moissanite earrings are verified and certified authentic gemstones. Each earring comes with an accompanying GRA warranty certificate to ensure you get a high-quality product. In addition, each moissanite gem is engraved with its unique GRA number!

Color measures the diamond’s amount of color, with a completely colorless diamond being ideal. Our inspectors only pass the highest level, which is Color D, all other gems are not used in our final selection.

Clarity tells you how free the moissanite is from tiny imperfections and flaws. We only use VVS1 or VVS2, which are the highest levels for Clarity.

Carat is the weight and tells you how heavy the moissanite is, just like a diamond.

Moissanites are superior to diamonds in their brilliance. With proper care, a moissanite can shine brightly, never get cloudy and can last a lifetime. See our Jewelry Care for instructions on care and cleaning tips. 

A moissanite has a higher reflective and refractive index than a diamond. Moissanite is the most brilliant gemstone, with a refractive index between 2.65-2.69.

Moissanite gemstones are durable enough to wear daily, ranking 9.25 on the Mohs scale for hardness. With proper cleaning and care, moissanites can last for years to come. 

While moissanites are sometimes referred to as lab diamonds, they are not diamonds, they have their own chemical makeup that has many similarities in terms of cut, color, clarity, refractive-index and so on, and they even test like diamonds with a diamond tester (high quality moissanites are the only gem that can test like diamonds). The chemical compounds of a moissanite create a much richer looking gem and are higher quality than simulants such as cubic zirconia and crystals, to name a few.

Moissanite are extremely affordable because they are a sustainable gemstone that are grown in a lab, as opposed to mined gemstones, which cost much more. Just make sure you are purchasing quality moissanites because the color, sparkle, authenticity and so on can vary greatly. We ensure we deliver the highest quality moissanites to consumers!

Since moissanites are an eco-friendly gemstone, they are manufactured with environmental impact in mind, which is the opposite of mined gemstones. In addition, we can create a higher standard for color, clarity, polish, sparkle, etc in a controlled lab environment. At the highest level, if you compare a moissanite to a high level diamond, the price difference is astronomical.
