This sparkling platinum ring is set with three moissanites, a lab grown alternative to diamonds. Viewed as a more environmentally friendly choice because there is no mining involved, moissanites are growing in popularity with people who care about the planet.
The centre stone is an oval cut 8mm by 6mm moissanite and it is framed by round moissanites which are brilliant cut, one on either side. The brilliant cut moissanites are 3.5mm in diameter.
The ring is made of platinum and is designed as a snuggle fit which means the setting lifts the stones high enough to have a straight wedding ring sit perfectly next to it.
Moissanite has a higher refractive index than diamond which means that light travels faster through it giving it even more sparkle. If you would like to know more about how moissanites compare to diamonds I have a great blog that compares them - Is it time to go green when shopping for diamonds?
