Moissanite ring hinsdale


The Karat Jewelry Group takes great pride in offering the finest Moissanite jewelry available in the USA.

What Is Moissanite? : Moissanite is a gem made of silicon carbide and has very similar qualities to diamonds. Natural Moissanite is such a rare substance that it isn’t formed on Earth at all. It was only discovered because it comes to Earth in certain meteorites. Dr. Henri Moissin, a French scientist who later won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, found microscopic particles of the substance in a meteor crater in Canyon Diablo, Arizona in 1893. He initially mistook it for diamond but subsequent analysis revealed he’d found something different.

Years later, other scientists learned to synthesize Moissanite in the laboratory, and it’s this artificial Moissanite that makes Moissanite jewelry possible. That’s a good thing, because Moissanite pieces possess features that make them an appealing option.

The Virtues of Moissanite

  • Brilliance. Like a diamond, Moissanite is an essentially colorless gemstone that sparkles brightly.
  • That special flash. A Moissanite gemstone is faceted differently than a diamond, and as a result, it gives off a bright, distinctive rainbow flash that many people find appealing.
  • Shape. Moissanite is available in a diversity of shapes including round, oval, emerald, cushion, pear, heard, and starburst.
  • Durability. Diamond rates a perfect 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, but Moissanite comes in just behind it at 9.25. That means it’s almost as resistant to damage.
  • Longevity. Moissanite's durability combined with the fact that it’s unlikely to grow dull and cloudy with age means that Moissanite jewelry lasts a long time.

We at the Karat Jewelry Group invite you to look at our selection of fine Moissanite pieces and see if one of them is right for you.



The practice of making jewelry is as old as the first recorded presence of humans on the planet and the engraving of these items can be dated all the way back to prehistoric times. The first documented examples of engraving were basic scratching and designs put on decorative rocks and stones. Engraving on metal was first really becoming popular in the early to mid-15th century and soon became a popular way to leave messages, add meaning, and designate certain items as belonging to a particular individual. This was the start of what we call traditional engraving, and for centuries it was relegated to just a handful of metals that were easy work with- mostly gold, silver, copper, and platinum.

Is there any real benefit of using laser engraving to personalize jewelry and is it really all that much better than traditional engraving methods? The answer is a profound yes and here are just a few of the reasons it is so popular:

  • Laser engraving, which often is called laser etching among consumers, is a highly developed process of “ablating” the chosen metal by removing upper layers of the metal to create an image- and it can be done with great precision and a high level of detail.
  • Laser marking does not remove any of the material to create the image but rather uses an annealing process, which uses heat to change the color of the surface layer of the metal- this provides an image while maintaining a smooth and solid metal base.
  • Engravings made with a laser are made with a clean, environmentally-friendly system that is chemical and residue free and does not pose a risk for the other parts of the jewelry- such as gemstones and watch faces- being damaged during the process. 
  • Laser technology allows highly skilled and talented jewelers the opportunity to create exquisite designs with little to no risk of damaging the item itself the way impact engraving and other hand fashioned working might.
  • Laser marking offers the very finest in precise detail and allows virtually identical duplications to be made when necessary without worry over imperfections and changes in the design- making it perfect for marketing materials.
  • Engravings done with modern laser technology yields stunningly beautiful work which lasts longer than traditional engraving and also can be done on a wider range of metals and on everything from small ring to large pendants and plaques.
