MORRISVILLE, N.C., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To the traditional three "C's" of diamond standards—color, cut and clarity—two additional "c's" should be added: Charles & Colvard, the creators of moissanite, the world's most brilliant gem.
Moissanite, a gemstone that literally had its beginnings in the stars—a meteorite crash-landed in Arizona 50,000 years ago, leaving a handful of crystal fragments in its wake—will bring stars to the eyes of any woman lucky enough to own it. Because of the scarcity of the original crystals, the firm of Charles & Colvard embarked on a research project to replicate the environment to successfully grow moissanite in a high-tech lab in North Carolina. The result: a gem that easily surpasses the brilliance and beauty of traditional diamonds at a fraction of the cost.
Make no mistake—moissanite is not a "replica" of the real thing—it IS the real thing! Wear a moissanite ring or necklace in the sunlight and you'll wish you'd brought your sunglasses along. With a refractive quality higher than a diamond and nearly identical on the hardness scale, moissanite will outshine and live alongside the most exceptional diamond.
The only difference—and it is a big difference—lies in the cost. Any woman who has been dreaming of owning exceptional diamond jewelry can now extend her hand and watch her dream come true as a moissanite ring is slipped onto her finger. Not even the most professional jeweler will be able to distinguish the difference between moissanite and diamond with the naked eye.
In addition to a wide variety of cuts including round brilliant, marquise, princess, heart-shaped, etc., Charles & Colvard offers a Certificate of Authenticity ensuring that the gemstone is an original of exceptional quality and craftsmanship. Each purchase also includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty assuring that the brilliance and fire of the gem will never fade.
Perhaps a sixth "C" should be added to the standards of moissanite: the Cool factor. Being smart with money in these troubled economic times is definitely cool. And for those who care about the environment, it's good to know that Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® is a responsible alternative to mined gems.
For the young and hip as well as the not-so-young and hip discerning woman, moissanite remains the ultimate in affordable luxury. Whether she is strolling along the red carpet or merely strolling around the block, every woman will feel special with moissanite glistening at her earlobes, illuminating her neckline or flashing on her finger.
The miracle of moissanite—the gem that came from the stars—is certain to make any woman wearing it a star in her own right.
