Jewel Eternal FAQs
What is moissanite jewelry?
Moissanite jewelry is one of the most popular gemstones on the market today. Almost indistinguishable in appearance from diamonds, and equally as hard on the Mohs scale, moissanites can have more clarity. Additionally, they are eco-conscious since they are so rare that they are not mined from the Earth.
Is moissanite jewelry eco-friendly?
Climate change is real and it is happening now. That is why patrons are careful when choosing their jewelry piece. But with the moissanite jewelry, they no longer need to worry. Moissanite jewelry is environmentally-friendly. In other words, its production and creation does not leave harmful impacts to the planet. Who would not want to wear a captivating jewelry piece that protects the environment?
How expensive is moissanite jewelry compared to other gemstones?
Often, price is a consideration when purchasing jewelry. Unlike the mainstream gemstones people love, moissanite jewelry is very affordable. Jewel Eternal believes that every woman is beautiful, and creates its moissanite jewelry at arm’s reach. Because it is less expensive than diamonds, women will often purchase it to travel with, leaving their valuables at home.
Will my moissanite jewelry last a lifetime?
Definitely, yes! Many generations can enjoy your moissanite pieces as they are passed down in your family. Moissanite jewelry is very durable. In fact, on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, moissanite gems are a 9.25-9.5. Hence, they are suitable for everyday wear without accumulating the scratches that dulls and fogs the appearance of other softer gems.
Where did the moissanite originate?
Moissanite gemstones were birthed from a meteor. However, natural moissanites are one of the rarest natural gems . All of the moissanites that adorn our present-day jewelry were created and grown in laboratories. Despite that fact, natural and synthetic moissanites provide the same quality and aesthetic for a very affordable price as they are physically identical to each other. Labs are kind of like a surrogate mom. The baby is still the same as it would be if carried to term in the biological mother, the same as the moissanite is grown the same as the Earth would've made. Just different "incubators".
How dazzling is moissanite jewelry?
Brilliance makes jewelry stand out. Just like diamonds, moissanites dazzle, and can reflect even more brilliantly due to the clarity. When hit by the ray of sun, the moissanite jewelry can produce a “disco effect” type of luster. All Jewel Eternal moissanites are rated very high at D grade and VVS1 in terms of clarity, meaning they are flawless when looking at them.
What should I consider in selecting moissanite jewelry?
Moissanite jewelry has only one criteria: color. Compared to diamond jewelry which must be evaluated according to the 4 C’s, namely cut, clarity, color, and carat, the highest quality moissanite jewelry should be colorless. Jewel Eternal offers the most exquisite, highest quality moissanite jewelry available.
What are the different grades of moissanite?
Just like their seemingly identical partner, the diamond, moissanites are rated by the GIA Clarity Scale. All Jewel Eternal moissanites are highest of grades with D-VVS1clarity and with cuts rated at Excellent.
Is moissanite a diamond?
No, the moissanite is not a diamond, nor a variant of diamond. It's not a "fake" diamond the same as a ruby is not a "fake" sapphire. The moissanite is a different gemstone. Originating from a meteor, the natural moissanite is rare, so all of the moissanites used in jewelry today come from laboratories. But the good news is moissanites have advantages diamonds don’t have. They are more affordable, eco-friendly, and brilliant. They also rate higher than a diamond in the category of Fire, meaning they give off more sparkles. It is a great diamond alternative.

How do I clean moissanite jewelry?
You can clean your moissanite jewelry the same as you would a diamond. Any jewelry cleaner safe for diamonds and your metal choice is fine to use. I find most jewelry cleaners to be overpriced gimmicks though.
The best way to clean your jewelry, and what I do, is with a mild liquid dish soap, such as Dawn, 7th Generation, etc, and some warm water. It will cut all the grease and grime right off. While you can use a small make up brush if needed to get out caked on mud or such on the gem, it is usually unnecessary. Do not use the brush on the metal as it could leave small hairline scratches on the precious metals.
