3. Consider Gemstone Sizes That Suit Their Preference

Now, let's talk about gemstone sizes. It’s important to consider the carat weight equivalent of your moissanite stone and how it suits your partner's style, preference, and finger size.

4. Remember the Shape, Cut & Colour

When choosing a gemstone, remember that the shape, cut, and colour help determine its brilliance, clarity, and value.

Here at Zen Moissanite, we cut all of our stones in the EF colour range with VVS1 clarity. This means, you’ll have peace of mind that no matter what shape, cut, or colour you choose it will be created with the highest quality of moissanite gemstones.

5. Ring Maintenance & Budget

Consider the maintenance level of your design and choose your budget. We always recommend clients consider lifestyle and maintenance preferences before choosing their ring! Keep in mind, as with all gold jewelry regular (bi-annual) inspections are recommended, but even more so with designs with multiple accent stones and intricate design.

Reminder! Remember to protect your ring against loss, theft, and incidental damages with jewelry insurance so you can love the piece for years to come.
