I proposed to my fiancee with a "placeholder" ring, because I wanted her to have a say in what her forever-ring looked like, and we're currently shopping for non-diamond engagement rings – but one of our concerns is having something that'll happily last a lifetime! We've ruled out several otherwise-beautiful gemstones for this reason… Reply It's rated as a 6.0 to 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, which means it's not very hard. I'd guess if you're prioritizing durability, you might want to go with another gemstone. Rubies, sapphires, and topaz are all rated 8 or higher so they're a better bet. Sapphire rings come in tons of colors, too! Reply Thanks for this! I do a lot of work with my hands (professional scientist with a lab here), so durability's probably closer to the top of my priority list than it is for most people. Coloured sapphires are gorgeous, and we've also been looking seriously at Moissanite (9.25 hardness & so sparkly) and Alexandrite (8.5 hardness & changes colour depending on the light source! How cool is that?) Reply Color-changing!! Sounds awesome! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
