Decoding Moissanite Size and Price: A Unique Approach
Unlike diamonds, which are sold by carat weight, moissanite is priced based on its dimensions in millimetres. Available in increments of 1.0mm or 0.5mm, this sizing method correlates directly with the gemstone's weight.
For instance, a 6.5mm round brilliant cut diamond typically weighs around 1.0 carat. In contrast, a moissanite gemstone of the same dimensions weighs approximately 0.88 carats, making it an attractive value proposition.
Moissanite vs. Diamond Prices in South Africa: A Comparative Analysis
In South Africa, a 1.0-carat diamond can cost anywhere from R20,000 to an eye-watering R300,000, influenced by factors such as cut, clarity, colour, and shape. Conversely, a similarly sized moissanite gemstone is far more affordable, with prices ranging from R5,000 to R8,000.
When considering a 2-carat diamond, the price can soar to R500,000. However, a 2-carat moissanite remains remarkably affordable, priced at approximately R16,000.
Price Consistency: Why Moissanite Offers Better Value
One of the key advantages of opting for moissanite over diamonds is its more consistent pricing. Thanks to precise manufacturing and stringent quality control, the price of moissanite is less affected by factors like inclusions and colour variations, which are common in natural diamonds.
To enhance transparency, we include the Diamond Equivalent Weight (DEW) in carats alongside the price and dimensions (in MM) of each moissanite gemstone. This allows for straightforward comparisons between diamond and moissanite prices.
Moissanite: The Cost-Effective Gemstone and Ring Alternative
While moissanite may not be a diamond, it competes fiercely with the traditional gemstone in terms of brilliance, quality, and aesthetics. Moreover, it excels in cost-effectiveness. Choosing moissanite allows you the flexibility to experiment with various designs, especially with our newly introduced range of rings, enabling you to craft a bespoke piece that reflects your individuality.
