Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral found in limited quantities or as small particles in the earth. Charles & Colvard had created these unique and near colorless jewels by producing large, gem-quality crystals. These crystals, also known as Moissanite are a truly unique and beautiful blend of art and science. Every Charles and Colvard created Moissanite jewel is precisely hand-cut by a master gem cutter to create maximum brilliance and to spark the ultimate fire. There is only one jewel that is known to be stronger than a Moissanite, which is the diamond. The diamond has a hardness rating of 10, while Moissanite is a close second at 9.5. The internal properties of these Moissanite jewels are so similar to a diamond that a standard diamond tester will test this stone as a true diamond. Moissanite stones actually have more sparkle than diamonds. The Refractive Index (the most important optical property affecting its potential brilliance) of a Moissanite is rated at 2.65-2.69 while a diamond's Refractive Index is rated at 2.42. One look at a Moissanite stone and you will fall in love. Each and every Charles & Colvard created Moissanite comes with a limited lifetime warranty that your Moissanite jewel will maintain its brilliance and fire, without fading or changing color. Every ring comes with a certificate of authenticity/warranty card as well as a beautiful gift box. Actual box may vary from picture.
