Alternative engagement rings are becoming more and more popular, but which stone is right for you? The moonstone is a unique and colorful option. It is so dreamy you might even find yourself getting lost staring into the depths of the rainbow of this ethereal stone. According to Hindu Mythology, Moonstones are considered a “dream stone” and can bring beautiful dreams at night. It is the stone of insight. Self-discovery and emotional maturity.
We love moonstone for engagement rings because of their amazing color play. These stones tend to shift and dance in different lights making them unbelievable special and one of a kind. The rainbow in our moonstone morphs from peacock blue to yellow to vibrant orange. They make for the most spectacular handcrafted engagement rings and custom handmade jewelry pieces.
What exactly is a moonstone?
Moonstone is a gemstone composed of feldspar minerals that has an iridescent sheen. Known for having calming and balancing energies, moonstone has been used to treat insomnia, ward off nightmares, and promote vivid dreams
Moonstones can fit any budget and style. If you are looking for something non traditional it is perfect. But, if you are looking for something traditional, a moonstone paired with diamonds can create a beautiful traditional engagement ring. Moonstone engagement rings require a little extra care and attention as opposed to diamonds. On Mohs Hardness Scale they rank 6-6.5, meaning they can be scratched by something like a penny. As long as your moonstone engagement ring is treated with extra care to prevent scratching and chipping, it will remain stunning for years to come.
How to Care for a Moonstone Engagement Ring?
For easy cleaning while at home, here at Emily Amey Jewelry, we recommend mixing dish soap with warm water and using a very soft toothbrush to gently clean around the stone and settings. We do not recommend submerging your ring or letting it soak. After cleaning, dry it with a paper towel until that beauty is shining bright!
