Moissanite vs Diamonds

How does Moissanite differ from diamonds?

Shakespeare asked: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet…?” Would a diamond by another name sparkle just as bright? What about a stone that wishes it would be a diamond? Moissanite turned up in the culture conversation on Pinterest as a “life hack;” it is a stone that looks like a diamond but is a fraction of the cost.
