When we gave you the scoop on diamond-alternative engagement rings, we named moissanite as the best diamond lookalike. Compared to a diamond, this stone sparkles more and costs less, so it’s a great option if you’re on a budget! We’ve curated a list of some great, affordable moissanite engagement rings for couples who don’t want to spend a fortune.

What Is Moissanite, Anyway?
Moissanite is a 9.25 on the MOHS scale, which means it’s nearly as hard as a diamond. This makes it a better engagement ring pick than other alternative stones, like moonstones, pearls, and opals, to name a few! Moissanite is durable and will wear well, which is important if you’re going to be wearing this ring everyday for the rest of forever, right?
Another reason to love moissanite: it’s rarely found in nature, so this stone is created in labs. This makes it a more ethical, eco-friendly choice than most diamonds.
And did we mention, it’s cheaper than diamonds? Yeah. We just want to repeat that!
