The Nexus Diamond™ Alternative vs Moissanite

Both the Nexus Diamond alternative and moissanite are beautiful, heirloom quality alternatives to diamonds. Like the Nexus Diamond alternative, moissanite is nearly as hard as diamond and will last forever—however, it has different optical properties that cause it to look quite distinct.

Moissanite is an exquisite alternative a diamond.

Moissanite is a gorgeous stone. If you are looking for a diamond or diamond alternative engagement ring, it’s important to know that moissanite rings have their own distinctive look. Moissanite has more fire and brilliance than a diamond, which makes it beautiful and much more sparkly. This can make it easy to tell apart from a diamond, especially in the sunlight. So if you love the brilliant sparkle, then moissanite could be a great choice for you.
