The way moissanite started is very interesting. It was found in a meteorite crater in Arizona in 1893. In today’s time, natural moissanite is extremely rare to find. So pretty much all the moissanite you see today is lab grown. What’s amazing is that lab grown moissanite is almost exactly like a diamond. Even jewelers have a difficult time telling them apart from real diamonds!
Moissanite is significantly more affordable than the traditional diamond. As a result, it attracts a lot of the younger generation. Also, since most moissanite is lab created, they are more eco-friendly than say the regular diamond. Millennials and younger generations are looking for products that are ethically sourced and socially conscious. This makes moissanite perfect for millennials!
