Charles & Colvard Moissanite

Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite

More brilliant than diamond, moissanite is a rare, naturally occurring mineral also known as silicon carbide, which was first discovered by the Nobel Prize-winning chemist Dr. Henri Moissan at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. This intriguing new stone was named moissanite in his honor, and Moissan spent the rest of his life attempting to recreate this rare mineral in his laboratory. It wasn't until the late 90's that scientists - working in a research laboratory located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina - developed the innovative thermal growing process that creates silicon carbide crystals.

Charles & Colvard is driven by an ethical promise: create the world’s most brilliant gem, while leading the way for environmentally and socially responsible choices in the jewelry industry at a revolutionary value.

It is out of this promise that Charles & Colvard proudly introduced the Charles & Colvard® Forever family: Three grades of moissanite, all brilliant, all with stunning optical properties and unique characteristics, and with the promise to endure Forever. Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® One. Brilliant. Classic.

*The fire, brilliance, scintillation and luster are the same between each; the difference is in the color of the gems.

Charles & Colvard Forever One

Charles & Colvard Forever One moissanite is a triumph of art, science and sustained effort. The structural configuration of this new moissanite material is what yields its unsurpassed, colorless (D-E-F) quality. While chemically it is still silicon carbide (SiC), and its optical and hardness properties remain the same, it is the stacking of SiC material in the manufacturing process that makes Forever One moissanite unlike any of its predecessors.

Forever One. Available in Two Grades.

Through its research and development efforts working with Forever One, Charles & Colvard has developed a second grade of Forever One, in G-H-I quality*. This near colorless gemstone emits a faint, [cooler] hue compared to its Forever Brilliant predecessor, which yields a warm hue. [It is] also cut from this same high quality material, ensuring that no matter what Forever One grade you choose, your stone will be more brilliant than any other gemstone.

*Based on the Gemological Institute of America's diamond grading scale.

Every Charles & Colvard created gem is guaranteed to remain as beautiful as the day you bought it. Whether for an engagement ring, Mother’s Day present, or a gift to yourself — it comes with a limited lifetime warranty that protects against damage to the stone and any changes in color, clarity or brilliance.

Charles & Colvard Forever Classic

Moissanite, or natural silicon carbide, is impossibly rare on Earth; in fact, it first gained fame when tiny particles were discovered by the Nobel Prize-winning French chemist Dr. Henri Moissan at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. This intriguing new stone was named Moissanite in his honor, and Moissan spent the rest of his life attempting to re-create this rare mineral, which is among the hardest materials on Earth.

Brilliantly conceived, affordable luxury from the creators of moissanite.

Forever Classic™ was the breakthrough innovation which proved that pure, high quality gemstone crystals could be sustainably and reliably created. The fulfillment of decades of development Forever Classic™ provides affordable luxury at a fraction of the cost. With its characteristic faint color, J–K designation, the original Forever Classic™ gems are available in an array of shapes and sizes.
Since Charles & Colvard released their new line of Forever One moissanite gems in October of 2016, there are now just 2 types of "Forever One" moissanite that are being categorized as "colorless" and "near colorless," the latter a cooler version of its original in "Forever Brilliant."

F&B's current Forever Brilliant gem listings will soon be replaced by the upgraded "near colorless" version of C&C's Forever One stones.
