As we all spend time at home, we’re forced to focus on things that matter to us. Shifting our focus from the nitty gritty details that we often get so lost in, and towards a deeper understanding of ourselves and our ties with the world. We’re spending more time looking at our relationships, whether romantically, platonically or towards our family, and hopefully, getting to a new level of love and support for each other as we weather this storm together.
Maybe it means you’re bonding with your childhood friend who you haven’t spoken to in forever, or spending more time in the kitchen with your parents, learning new recipes. And maybe, it means you’ve realised your partner who has been there for you is a solid rock, and maybe she deserves one too.
But you’re not sure where to start? The world is your oyster, and that means there are a lot of options out there for you to browse in the market. (What cut would she like, what style would suit her, what about the colour of the gold? Plus, didn’t you read an article the other day about diamond mining and how it’s bad for the environment? Should you get a diamond? What about a gemstone? Are they ethically sourced? Conflict-free?) And then, there’s the price that comes into play. It’s no secret that engagement rings, or jewellery for that matter, are not the cheapest things in life. But, after all, this is a once in a lifetime moment, so that calls for some splurging, right?
Well, I guess, but not really. LeCaine Gems is the leading Moissanite jeweller in Singapore, with team of expert craftsman with a fine eye for detail. The fine jewellery company crafts elegant, bespoke pieces, perfect for any occasion, at truly affordable prices. They combine conflict-free lab grown Moissanite and ethically sourced gemstones, to create exquisite jewellery.
But before we delve too much, let’s clear the air and tell you what Moissanite is.
Known as the gemstone born from the stars, Moissanite are a stunning gem that shines as brilliantly as diamonds. Real Moissanite are rare, as they are said to have come to discovery when a meteorite fell to Earth. Therefore, the majority of Moissanite are created in the lab, thus resulting in minimal environmental impact, so you can put your mind at ease.
Moissanite are engineered to resemble diamonds, but are quite different compositionally and visually. However, the difference is not obvious, and it takes a professionally trained gemologist to be able to tell them apart. Moissanite is one of the world’s most scintillating gemstones, and they have a Mohs Scale of Hardness of 9.25, making them one of the hardest substances on Earth, and suitable for everyday wear.
At LeCaine Gems, their expertise lies in creating and setting Moissanite jewellery, whether it’s a set of earrings or a bespoke engagement ring.
