Man Made Gemstones

A diamond may be a girl’s best friend but a moissanite jewel may well become a girl’s best friend forever. Originally discovered in a meteorite by Henri Moissan, a natural occurring moissanite gem is extremely rare. It is so rare that when found the particles of moissanite are too small for use to craft any item of jewelry. After many years of research and trial and error to reproduce the natural substance a high tech process was found to replicate a new type of simulated diamond. Charles & Colvard hold an exclusive patent to the creation of the lab created silicon carbide formula that results in the dazzling brilliance of a moissanite gem with characteristics similar to a diamond. 

The moissanite man made gemstones even have a hardness of 9.25 as measured on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. This puts it closer to the 10 of a diamond’s hardness than even a ruby or sapphire. The myriad of sparkling jolts of light emitted by moissanite are reminiscent of a thousand twinkling stars flashing through a thousand prisms. Inspired by the ancient meteorites falling from the heavens, the star you put on her hand will be reflected by the stars in her eyes.
