For wedding rings, we always recommend that you plan to have your order in with enough time they are finished a few weeks/month before. Depending on when you order your wedding ring, sometimes that sizing can be a touch off and this allows us time for you to try them on and us to make adjustments if needed. It also allows you to breathe easy knowing it is ticked off the list and the rings are done and in your possession well before the wedding.
Picking an engagement ring style can be overwhelming and so can settling on the star of the show, the centre stone. Here is some information about the different stone types on our website that may be helpful.
Important note - Some of these stones you will not see as an option on the product listing of the website due to the wide variation of size and pricing. So, if there is a stone you have your heart set on but you don’t see it in this list or on our website, contact us here and we can quote you directly.
As you can see from above Moissanite is very similar to a natural diamond but with some added features. Moissanite naturally has more fire dispersion and brilliance than most natural diamonds. It also has a hardness rating of 9.25 on the MOHS scale which make them an excellent, hard wearing alternative to diamonds.
Did I forget to mention at a fraction of the cost also??? While Natural Diamonds come with a hefty price tag... Moissanite is a great, affordable comparison for those who want that white diamond look but don't want to burn a hole in their pockets.
Traditionally we use carat as the unit of measurement for a diamond's weight. Moissanite is not measured in carats because it weighs approximately 10 percent less than diamond. For example, a 6.5mm round diamond would weigh 1.0ct, while a 6.5mm round moissanite would weigh 0.88ct. The two stones would be the same size - 6.5mm in diameter. For this reason, all moissanites for sale are listed on our website with their size in millimetres.
The ECO-FRIENDLY aspect of Moissanite is so important to our business along with educating our customers and recognising growing consumer consciousness around large scale diamond mining. Windfall Jewellery is so proud to offer an alternative as part of our range.
Moissanite's are grown in a carefully controlled laboratory setting. The lab we use have 18 years of experience and high quality control standards.
LAB GROWN DIAMONDS VS NATURAL WHITE DIAMONDS
If going down the path of a diamonds, you may ask yourself why you would get a lab grown over a natural diamond or vice versa. It is a good thing to contemplate and the final decision will really be based on your budget and what is important to you. There is no right or wrong answer there. Different strokes for different folks as they say.
You may consider lab grown diamonds if you would prefer them for ethical reasons (Even though we of course only use conflict free, ethically sourced diamonds, some clients do not want to contribute money towards the mining industry as a whole), personal preference or your budget extends past moissanite and you want a “real” diamond but again wish to keep the cost down as much as possible.
You may consider natural diamonds because let’s face it, they are beautiful and having a little piece of mother nature of your own, knowing this stunning rock was created all by the wonders of the Earth and Mother Nature herself is rather enchanting. Some people also don’t like that lab grown diamonds don’t have the natural energy within them that natural earth made stones have. And finally, lab grown diamonds aren’t far off the price of naturals in many instances, you may just decide, why not the real natural deal.

SALT AND PEPPER DIAMONDS
I mean who doesn’t want a little galaxy inside their diamond?!
Salt and Pepper diamonds are not graded like your regular white diamonds so as such they do not come with any kind of certification. This is because the diamond industry does not grade Salt and Pepper diamonds the same way they do with white diamonds and the 4 C’s that usually apply (colour, clarity, cut and carat) don’t apply / aren’t graded for salt and pepper diamonds. If you wish to have a certification done, you must let us know at point of purchase as this needs to be done whilst the stone is loose and not set into a ring and we can arrange for this to be done independently by a qualified and accredited gemologist at
