Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and it is perhaps the most romantic holiday of the year. The day is also one of the most popular and traditional times for couples to become engaged or married.

Selecting an engagement ring is a very important decision to make. There are many things to consider in addition to the cost. There are the cut, color, clarity and carat of the stone, not to mention the setting as well.  While each of these factors is important to consider, selecting the perfect stone that is within your budget is essential.

Moissanites are a splendid alternative. These brilliant gemstones have the fiery brilliance of a diamond. What’s more they are second only to a diamond in hardness and are considerably less costly than diamonds as well. Moissanites were first discovered as silicon carbide particles during the late 1800’s by Nobel Prize winning French chemist Dr. Henri Moissan after a massive meteorite strike in Arizona.

These silicon carbide particles are exceptionally rare on earth and Moissan spent the rest of his life attempting to recreate this rare mineral. Another research group later perfected and patented a process to create silicon carbide into gemstones in the late 1900’s and Moissanites were first introduced in the use of engagement rings, earrings, bracelets and other fine jewelry in 1998.
