The remarkable durability of moissanite, which makes it ideal for everyday use, is one of the things that make it such a terrific option for an engagement ring. It has a Mohs hardness rating of 9.25, making it tougher than almost all gemstones (the one exception: diamonds, which is slightly higher at a 10).
Additionally, because of its great heat resistance, it is less likely to be harmed during jewellery repair (or a house fire, for that matter).
