Although diamonds have a long history of being the status quo, an increasing number of couples are looking for a quality alternative that better represents their lifestyle and values. When you choose moissanite, you can feel confident knowing that your stones are extremely durable, extraodinarily beautiful, and unapologetically ethical.
Moissanite (composed of silicon carbide) scores an incredible 9.25 on the Mohs scale of hardness, making it one of the hardest stones available for jewelry. Moissanites can also vary in color, with colorless DEF grade being the best available in the market and in all Lucine & Co rings. A unique aspect of moissanite is it's high refractive index of 2.65-2.69, meaning it has even more fire and sparkle than even the best diamonds.
We partner with a Chicago based jewelry sourcer that is RJC certified, which guarantees that all our moissanite is lab created in both the U.S and internationally. We are proud to offer moissanite in all our jewelry, and feel empowered to be part of a new generation of jewelry designers that offer ethical alternatives to better the standards that have been set before us.
