These beauties are perfect diamond alternative rings, offering a sustainable solution that isn’t stingy with the sparkle.
moi was started with the hope of saving people time and money while fully enjoying the shopping process. Co-founders Minnie and Wayne found the experience of shopping in jewelry stores and the ever-popular marketing of diamonds as the only option to be quite tiresome; they’ve simplified the process with a limited amount of all-moissanite designs between their “Classics” and “Trendsetters” styles, while providing incredible customer care. The ring above exemplifies the variety of their offerings, in The Solitaire in 18k yellow gold, inspired by a marriage between two individuals from two different countries.
