Moissanite, more brilliance...
Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite is a unique near-colourless jewel made from silicon carbide (SiC) that outshines all others with its unsurpassed fire and brilliance. Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral found in limited quantities, or as small particles in the earth. Created Moissanite is not a diamond simulant or diamond substitute, it is its own jewel. The rarity of large natural moissanite crystals prohibits their use in jewelry making. Moissanite created gemstones are released for sale only after having met stringent quality control standards. The Refractive Index (RI) of a gemstone is the most important optical property affecting its potential brilliance (sparkle). With an RI of 2.65 – 2.69, moissanite displays more brilliance than diamond (RI 2.42) or any other popular gemstone.

The Five Cs of Moissanite
There are four Cs jewelers use when grading gemstones…
and they tell you everything you need to know about moissanite
to achieve the fifth C – Confidence
Every Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® jewel is precisely calibrated and hand-cut by a master technician to maximize brilliance and spark the ultimate fire. While standard round brilliant continues to be the most popular cut for moissanite, fancy cuts are also available.
The standard GIA diamond color grading scale was never designed to rate moissanite. Unlike diamonds, which range from colorless to brownish to fancy yellow, moissanite can carry undertones across the board from near colorless to green to yellow to gray. It’s a beautiful, brilliant and highly dispersive jewel that stands on its own, creating a unique jewelry category unto itself. The vast majority of moissanite jewels are near-colorless. New cutting edge technology has provided a whiter gemstone recently made available and branded as “Forever Brilliant”.
Since Charles & Colvard® moissanite is grown using natural elements, mimicking nature in a controlled laboratory environment, like other natural gemstones, a percentage of the jewel is very clean of impurities. Charles & Colvard® (the sole manufacturer of moissanite) is able to control the entire process of cutting and through various quality controls, provides a high quality gemstone with the greatest care regarding “Clarity.”
4. Carat weights
In order to fit available settings, it’s often easier for jewelers to order moissanite by millimeter. The specific gravity of moissanite is 3.21 grams per cubic centimeter, so a 6.5 mm round brilliant moissanite jewel is approximately 0.87 carats, and equivalent to a one carat diamond size.
Considered “the most brilliant jewel in the world®”, with unsurpassed fire and brilliance, this unique created gemstone is the ultimate in affordable luxury. The exclusively patented process produces a superior created gemstone that is confidently backed by Charles & Colvard®’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. This winning combination delivers the quality and confidence you deserve while empowering you to express your keen sense of style and great taste.
