Ethical and Affordable Diamond Ring Alternatives in Singapore

One of the most important among the things a couple has to consider on their path to marriage would be the bride's engagement ring. Besides the ring's overall design, factors like the cost of the ring, the ethics behind sourcing and manufacturing the ring, and the environmental impact of the purchase are all important things to keep in mind.

Although diamonds have traditionally been the favoured centre stone for engagement rings, it is difficult to ignore the fact that the global demand for this gemstone has resulted in unethical practices like child labour, forced labour and the mining of conflict diamonds over the past decades. These environmental and human rights abuses have led many modern brides to prefer unique and beautiful alternatives to the diamond engagement ring. This blog will detail the appeal of moissanite engagement rings and why a Princess Gem moissanite makes a choice option for the modern Singaporean bride.

The Moissanite Appeal: The Solution to Conflict Diamonds

Those who appreciate the appearance of a diamond but hope to wear an engagement ring without a controversial history might consider shopping for a moissanite engagement ring instead. Possessing just as much (if not more) sparkle and brilliance, this gemstone is stunningly similar in appearance to a diamond. Sitting at 9.0 to 9.25 on the Mohs hardness scale, moissanite is also highly resistant to scratches. This quality makes moissanite jewellery a suitable and durable option for daily wear. Additionally, a Princess Gem moissanite will show positive on diamond testers.

We craft our ethical, lab-grown moissanite gemstones with particular attention to the conventional 4C standards used to grade diamond quality. All our moissanite gems are certified at an independent gemological lab as a testament to our values and transparency.

The Moissanite Appeal: Fit for the Eco-conscious Individual

Diamond mining has resulted in substantial carbon footprints and irreversible damage to natural environments. Besides releasing pollutants like greenhouse gases into the air, diamond mining also results in negative consequences such as the loss of animal habitat, contamination of groundwater sources (by chemicals released in the mining process) and land erosion.

Eco-conscious individuals in Singapore and beyond seeking a unique token of love might want to consider an engagement ring from Princess Gem. No mining is required in the production of our rings. Our moissanite gemstones are sustainably lab-grown and therefore have a minimal environmental impact compared to mined stones like diamonds.

By keeping our jewellery affordable, we hope that our clients will be able to spend smartly and allocate more of their budget to making lasting memories on their wedding day and honeymoon.
