They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but does that ring true for you? Pinterest’s 2018 Wedding Trends report reveals that the search for moissanite gems increased by 294%—and with good reason! This gem is an eco-friendly bride’s best friend.

“Moissanite is one of the best alternatives to a more traditional gemstone because it’s beautiful and conscientious,” says Suzanne Miglucci, CEO and President of Charles & Colvard, the original creator of moissanite. “While it’s hard to beat moissanite’s incredible brilliance, durability, and value, many brides and grooms are also drawn to the [gemstone] because it’s an environmentally and socially responsible choice.”

So just what should you keep in mind when shopping for a moissanite ring?

Miglucci recommends evaluating color, cut, and clarity—no different from a diamond! “Similar to other white gems, moissanite stones can vary in color saturation,” she says. “Obviously, the less color the better and you’ll want the stone to be clear of inclusions that will detract from its sparkle.”

“Most importantly, be sure to choose a gemstone that aligns with your combined preferences and principles,” adds Miglucci. “Weigh beauty, price and social responsibility to determine what’s most important in choosing the gemstone that best represents your relationship and everlasting love.”
