All About Clear and Colorless Diamonds: Five Diamond Options for Your Engagement Ring

When it comes to your preferences in gemstones, are you the type of person who likes to keep things as straightforward as possible? In the post that we have for you today, we will discuss the various types of transparent and colorless diamonds from which you can select in order to create your jewelry pieces. Let's go explore and find out what we can find!

Moissanite

Moissanites are a type of clear diamond that is commonly used as an alternative to diamonds for individuals who do not desire to have a diamond. These lab-grown diamonds bring both fire and brilliance. This gemstone, when exposed to light, will put on a show and emit rainbow flashes that are sure to catch the eye of anyone who sees them. That is seriously awesome, isn't it? In addition, this gem has a hardness of 9.25 on the Mohs scale, which places it very close to that of a diamond, which has a rating of 10.

White Sapphire

Up next is a beautiful white sapphire! This precious diamond is a member of the corundum family, which includes other well-known gems such as rubies and blue sapphires. These sapphires do not contain any trace elements, which is what gives rubies and blue sapphires their coloring. As a result, they appear transparent and colorless because they do not contain any trace elements. On the Mohs scale, a white sapphire receives a rating of 9, which places it just slightly below a moissanite in terms of hardness. It is important to keep in mind that sapphires are prone to picking up dirt and scratching easily; as a result, they must be worn with care and properly maintained.

White Topaz

Moving on, topaz is a silicate mineral that can be found in a wide variety of colors, including blue and green. White topaz is one of those colors. This precious diamond, much like sapphire, is devoid of any trace elements that could impart a distinct hue to its crystalline structure. In this particular instance, chromium is not present in white topaz! On the Mohs scale, this precious diamond receives an 8 out of 10.

White Zircon

Zircon is in a class all by itself, not to be confused with cubic zirconia, which is another type of zircon. Zircon is not only considered to be one of the December birthstones, but it is also a gem that is available in a transparent color. On the Mohs scale, this diamond registers between a 6 and a 7.5, and it is notorious for its fragility. You shouldn't have any problems as long as you are careful about how you wear jewelry that contains this diamond. Have a look at some of the maintenance advice that we have to offer for keeping your ring in pristine condition.

Diamond

The diamond, which is considered to be every girl's best friend, comes in last. On the Mohs scale, a diamond receives a rating of 10, making it the most durable and difficult gemstone to find. When searching for the ideal diamond to be set in your ideal ring, there are a few things you should keep in mind, including color, cut, clarity, and carat weight, also known as the "4 C's." Diamonds are more expensive than the other diamonds that were mentioned earlier, but purchasing one is unquestionably worthwhile if it is something that you have your heart truly set on and will take care of.
