More on Color
The exquisite moonstone is known for possessing a quality of adularescence, meaning that its different layers create a scattered effect of light that reveals an awe-inspiring glow from below the surface of the stone. Inclusions in the moonstone create a gleaming play of color and light that add to its value. Highly prized variations of moonstone cast a blue sheen with a nearly colorless body and flawless clarity. Rare forms of the stone are known for their unusually mesmerizing patterns of light. Refracted rays of light create a star-like effect glimmering on the surface of the stone in moonstones with an asterism pattern. Cat’s eye moonstones are known for their single vivid line of light that evokes the slits of a real cat’s eye.
As moonstone is a more delicate stone, it is crucial to choose a setting that will help protect it from damage. We recommend protective settings such as the bezel which will keep the stone securely in place surrounding this softer stone with support.

Moonstone Engagement Ring Buying Tips
One of the most meaningful and major purchases you will make in your life, an engagement ring is something you will cherish forever, symbolizing the unique and special bond between you and your partner. As you’re searching for your ideal engagement ring
, here are some things to keep in mind.
Know Your Budget - Set your budget before you shop to find a comfortable price point. Moonstones with a more translucent body color and a heightened adularescence of blue hues are more highly prized and more costly, while other just as beautiful, translucent variations tend to be more modest in price so you can choose a moonstone engagement ring that suits your budget.
Know Your Ring Size
- As you will adore your engagement ring forever, it is crucial that you know your ring size
to ensure that your ring will fit you comfortably. Because moonstone is a softer stone, it is crucial that you get a perfect fit to prevent the ring from snagging or slipping, which could expose it to potential damage.
Understand the Care Your Moonstone Needs
- As a more delicate gemstone, moonstone must be treated with the proper gemstone care
and cleaning precautions to protect it from wear and tear so it will sparkle for decades to come.
Consider Personalizing Your Ring
- Consider personalizations
to make your moonstone engagement ring uniquely yours with a one-of-a-kind style that captures your desired look. You can opt for a mixed-metal or hand-carved band, add accent stones, or include a personalized engraving.
