But it is a unique gem with exceptional dazzle and fire that delivers quality, beauty, and value like no other gemstone. Women across the world find it hard to resist the big and exceptionally bright sparkle of this fantastic jewel!
A Perfect Combination of Art & Science
Born from a rare geological discovery made more than a century ago, Moissanite is a man-made gemstone. Discovered by Nobel Prize winning French scientist Dr. Henri Moissan, Moissanite’s origins can be traced to some particles found in 1893 in the Canyon Diablo meteor crater in Arizona State. Since these crystals were too small and scattered, they couldn’t be set into jewelry. So for years, scientists worked hard to re-create these rare but uniquely brilliant gems.
And just recently, with advances in technology, Charles & Colvard were able to replicate Moissanite! This has made Moissanite jewelry affordable and popular amongst women who want high quality jewelry that is not only beautiful but long-lasting.
