No gem can compare to the brilliance and scintillation of moissanite. First uncovered in a meteorite and impossibly rare on earth, Charles & Colvard patented the proprietary process to fashion this brilliant jewel from silicon carbide, the world’s second-hardest substance. More durable than sapphire, its beauty will last for generations.
Why do so many women prefer moissanite to other colorless gems? What really makes Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® unique are its optical properties. With a dispersion that’s 2.4 times that of diamond, it bends light into mesmerizing rainbow flashes of fire. And with a refractive index of 2.65-2.69, it has 10 percent more brilliance than diamond. Double refraction increases the number of light rays that reflect back to your eye. It simply dances with light.
And, carat for carat, no gem offers more beauty for less of an investment. Most consumers won’t have to sacrifice size or quality to fit their budgets. While the most popular shape is the traditional round brilliant, a variety of classic and innovative shapes and sizes are available to add brilliance to designer jewelry styles or timeless classics like stud earrings.
Carefully and precisely faceted, each Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® jewel is cut according to exact angles and proportions designed especially for moissanite to maximize its brilliance, enhance its incredible fire, and reveal its inner beauty. So the woman who wears it can shine through.
Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® is a responsible alternative to mined gems, providing jobs for skilled scientists and gem cutters in the United States without damaging the environment.
Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® comes with a certificate of authenticity and limited lifetime warranty that it will maintain its brilliance and fire, without ever fading or changing color. Its beauty will last for generations.
