Charles&Colvard debuts colorless moissanite

The moissanite maker recently introduced a line of moissanite with D, E and F color grades, a first for the company.

Morrisville, N.C.--Moissanite maker Charles & Colvard Ltd. recently introduced its first colorless (D, E, and F grade) moissanite stones. 

The stones are part of a new collection called Forever One, which joins the company’s Forever Brilliant near-colorless gems (G, H, and I grades) and the original Forever Classic, which has stones with faint color (J and K).

Because natural moissanite comes from meteors and is only found in extremely small quantities, Charles & Colvard manufactures moissanite to mimic the process found in nature. It is the only company currently to create moissanite.

The gemstones created by Charles & Colvard have a hardness of 9.25 on the Mohs scale and a refractive index of 2.65 to 2.69. Each moissanite stone also comes with a certificate of authenticity, a limited lifetime warranty from the company, and laser inscriptions to assure the quality of the stone.

“This journey has been 20 years in the making, since we first created gem-quality moissanite in 1996,” President and CEO Marvin Beasley said. “Through a longstanding partnership with our exclusive supplier of silicon carbide, Cree, recent technological advancements and ongoing dedication from our amazing team to better our best, Forever One is the finest gemstone we’ve ever produced and our first colorless moissanite.”

Michelle Graffis the editor-in-chief at National Jeweler, directing the publication’s coverage both online and in print.
