The Stones We Use

Our Stones

There are two types of stones we use for jewelry: Lab-created Diamonds and Moissanite Stone.

Lab-created Diamonds

"[Lab-created diamonds] are not fakes. They're not cubic zirconias. They have all the same physical and chemical properties of a mined diamond."

– Stephen ­Morisseau, a spokesman for the Gemological Institute of America, a nonprofit organization that oversees the international diamond grading system.

Lab-grown diamonds are not cubic zirconias. They aren't polished glass or some other material designed to replicate the look of real diamonds. A lab-created diamond is "grown" inside a lab using cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process. The result is a diamond that is chemically, physically, and optically the same as those grown beneath the Earth's surface.

Sometimes, lab-created diamonds are referred to as synthetic diamonds. While not technically inaccurate, the term "synthetic" may be the reason people believe lab-created diamonds are "fake." However, lab-grown diamonds are not fake.

If we compare the physical and chemical properties of lab-grown and mined diamonds, it's obvious lab-grown diamonds are, in fact, the real deal. Diamond simulants such as cubic zirconia, moissanite, and other gemstones may look similar to diamonds to the untrained eye. However, as Stephen Morisseau said, they don't have the same chemical properties as lab-created and mined diamonds. And whether you're using diamonds for industrial drill bits or eye-catching engagement rings, there's really no substitute for diamond.

Moissanite Stone

Moissanite is naturally occurring silicon carbide and its various crystalline polymorphs. It has the chemical formula SiC and is a rare mineral, discovered by the French chemist Henri Moissan in 1893. Henri Moissan won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry later. Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so moissanite available today is laboratory-created. After many years of trial, the particles Moissan discovered were successfully synthesized to produce what is now one of the world's most scintillating gemstones. Moissanite is engineered to give the illusion of similarity to diamonds but is compositionally and visually quite different from a real diamond. The durability, brilliance, and color of the two gems are quite different.

The "secret" to the beauty of Moissanite: Moissanite is so beautiful because its crystals have physical, chemical, and optical properties with gem characteristics. This gem has a higher refractive index and gloss than diamonds, which is 2.639 times more amazing than diamonds, So the moissanite is bright and shining!

Our moissanite has its unique waist code, and it is certified by the international famous professional appraisal organization and the global gemstone Research Association (GRA).

What makes Sayabling™ Stones so special?

Scratching Test

Sayabling stones is unscratchable and holds its shape for a lifetime without showing wear and tear.

Gemstones are measured on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, which assesses a gem's ability to withstand surface scratching.

On the Mohs scale, Sayabling stones scores an exceptional 9.25, which is almost as hard as a diamond (which scores a 10.0).

Naked Eye Vs Diamond Comparison

You can show off your Sayabling™ Stone next to an expensive diamond, and no one will be able to tell the difference with the naked eye.
