10 Reasons To Choose Moissanite

Posted on January 18 2018

 

1. MAXIMUM BRILLIANCE

Moissanite has more brilliance than any other gem in the world, even diamond, and that means more sparkle.

 

2. MAXIMUM FIRE

It also has the most fire of any gem in the world, 2.4 times the fire of diamond to be exact. Fire gives a gem its glittering rainbow effect.

 

3. DURABILITY

Moissanite can withstand temperatures high enough to turn a diamond to dust! It is extremely resistant to scratching, chipping, and breaking, and therefore is an ideal choice for engagement rings and every day jewelry essentials.

 

4. MORE CLARITY

Moissanite is considered eye-clean, or in other words flawless to the naked eye. All of our gemstones that successfully pass our rigorous inspection process offer the highest clarity possible.

 

5. LESS COLOR

With three moissanite color grades you can experience the look of faint color (J-K color range), near-colorless (G-H-I color range), and truly colorless gems (D-E-F color range).

 

6. MORE VALUE

With moissanite you get far more beauty, for far less as compared to similar gemstones. This unique gem offers superior optical properties to other colorless gemstones like diamonds, at modest prices. Moissanite.com offers trusted financing options with low interest rates to make your dreams real.

 

7. ZERO CONFLICT

Moissanite, although found in nature, must be grown in a laboratory as it is too rare to mine. Lab-created gemstones eliminate the issues associated with overseas mining operations, including child labor and war funding. Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® is exclusively grown in the U.S, our state of the art facility operates under the most stringent guidelines.

 

8. SMALLER ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

The sheer size and harsh means of extracting gemstones from beneath the earth’s surface is enough to make you wonder – how could this possibly not damage the environment?Gemstone mining operations have been scientifically shown to cause irreversible damage to the environment when they fail to follow regulations set forth by our governments. Choosing lab-created moissanite reduces the reliance on mining, and supports a small facility that sources its metals and jewelry settings from the most responsible of vendors.

 

9. MADE IN THE U.S

After its initial discovery in Arizona in the 1800s, Charles & Colvard® is the innovator behind moissanite. Together with Cree™, we created the first ever gem quality moissanite in the 1990s right in the heart of North Carolina.

 

10. A BEAUTIFUL STORY

A trace amount of silicon carbide travels from outer space, forming into tiny crystals along its way, and lands upon the earth’s surface.

With its miraculous discovery in the 1800s, and over a century of failed attempts to recreate its beauty, the world lay in wait for the first moissanite gemstone.

Science and art collide to bring you Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite®, innovation at its best. Now, a gem that almost seems too good to be true has reached the fingertips of thousands.

And as you search for your dream you have chosen a gem whose grandeur you can touch, but whose intrinsic beauty stands for so much more.
