 We are Made, not Mined

We believe there is a more brilliant way forward. Our mission is to redefine real within the jewelry industry and for our customers. We live by the idea that fine jewelry can be accessible, beautiful, and conscientious. We use premium quality lab created gems – Forever One moissanite and Caydia® lab-grown diamonds – set in responsibly sourced precious metals. We want you to sparkle on your own terms.

Our Heritage

Today, Charles & Colvard® brings revolutionary gems and fine jewelry to market using exclusively Made, not Mined™ gems and a dedication to 100% recycled precious metals.

Lab-Grown Luxury

We take pride in our unique designs, meticulous craftsmanship, and the responsible sourcing of our gemstones and precious metals. Our fine jewelry exudes luxury without compromising our standards or the environment.
