Ring with cognac moissanite

Autor: Piotr Zieliński

Moissanite was discovered by the French chemist and mineralogist H. Moissan in the Canyon Diablo meteorite in the United States. The parameters of this mineral are in fact cosmic. It has a hardness similar to a diamond (9.3 on the Mohs scale) and a higher brilliance. Thanks to this, it has even more brilliance. No wonder this stone has become a wonderful alternative to a diamond.

In addition to its unique properties, this mineral has a significant impact on the protection of the natural environment. 

Blood diamonds have long been known to contribute to poverty and exploitation. The stones obtained in this way are illegally excavated, and therefore bypassed by laws protecting the natural environment. Meanwhile, moissanite has been obtained in a laboratory since the 1960s. The process takes place under controlled conditions, without destroying priceless nature.

It has long been my goal to design jewelry with such a stone. When Mrs. Magda came to me, I immediately liked the assumptions of the interview: a large ring, with a large, cognac stone, and a lot of yellow gold. I immediately thought of moissanite. This stone comes in a variety of colors, as do diamonds. The difficulty, however, was that due to the formation process, large stones are rare.

After a long search, I was able to find a broker who had a cognac shade stone for sale, an emerald cut and a solid weight of 17 ct. I designed a bold frame for it with four wide prongs referring to the shape of the stone. Two massive links protrude from the cover, intertwining like links on a belt in an ultra-luxurious purse. The top is lined with small white moissanites.
