18ct Gold Moissanite Ring by Brian Borg.
Ring is set with a 1.5ct colourless moissanite in a special formed bezel. Ring is hallmarked 750 (75% of pure gold)
Moissanite is a great alternative to mined diamonds, a lab grown stone with incredible hardness and durabilty with a great flash of fire, its dispersion is much higher than a natural diamond!
“With refractive indices of 2.648 and 2.691, a dispersion of 0.104, a hardness of 9¼ on the Mohs scale, and a specific gravity of 3.22, synthetic moissanite is much closer to diamond in overall appearance and heft than any previous diamond imitation. The thermal properties of synthetic moissanite are also so close to those of diamond that the thermal probes currently on the market react to synthetic moissanite as if it were “diamond.” This new material can be readily separated from diamond on the basis of its anisotropic optical character, which produces a doubling in the appearance of facet junctions. A new instrument manufactured by C3 Inc. solely to distinguish synthetic moissanite from diamond was also examined for this study.”
