In order to offer the lowest price possible on these C&C Moissanites, I am not stocking the stones myself, rather just ordering them as needed to fulfill your order.

WHAT YOU’LL LOVE ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR STONE...
First, the new FOREVER ONE line by Charles and Colvard is D-E-F Color! This squashes the only negative thing I could have ever said about Colorless Moissanite in the past....That they had a little too much color, not white enough. NO MORE! This gorgeous 1.3 Carat Asscher Cut Moissanite is absolutely the best quality. The Forever Ones are laser enscribed on the girdle and come with certificates of authenticity (that you use to register your stone/warranty online). This same stone sells for $849.00 on Charles & Colvard's website.
I have been an avid gem collector for many years. I enjoy searching for great gemstones to collect, enjoy and sometimes make jewelry from. I buy A LOT of Stones, cherry-pick the great ones and send a lot of stones back. Moissanites are a new obsession of mine. Their unmatched beauty, range of color, durability and relatively low price make them an easy stone to own, collect and wear.
Moissanite was first discovered in the late 1800’s inside of a Meteorite. The scientist who made the discovery first believed the stone to be Diamond. After testing the stone, it was learned that this was a different and undiscovered stone completely. Since then, Moissanite has been discovered in a few other sources, mainly Israel. While over 2500 Moissanite crystals have been found over the past 16 years, the largest single piece of rough was only 4.1mm. Moissanite has never been found in sizes large enough to cut and make jewelry from. While natural Moissanite does exist in very small size and quantity, there is no natural Moissanite available in the market anywhere.
Lab Created Moissanite is the only available option for owning Moissanite. Lab created Moissanite is chemically a real Moissanite gemstone. The only difference is that the environment in which it is grown was created by science in a lab, not naturally in the earth. Once grown, the rough crystal material is individually hand cut and polished by skilled gem cutters.
The same method used for cutting Diamonds and other gemstones.
WHY BUY MOISSANITE?
Moissanite is the second hardest gemstone available. Diamond being the first at 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. Moissanite being 2nd at 9.25, and Sapphire/Ruby coming in 3rd at 9. Many varieties of gemstones are too soft to set in jewelry with assurance that the stone will not be broken and damaged over time. This is what puts Diamond at the top of the food chain.
A Moissanite’s hardness insures that the investment made in the stone will last for a lifetime.
There are other factors that make Moissanite an appealing gemstone. Moissanites have a significantly higher rate of light dispersion (fire) than Diamonds. Bursts of rainbow colored fire that emerge when the Moissanite is under light is a truly beautiful and rare sight. There are many beautiful gemstones out there, but few have the Sparkle power of a Moissanite stone. Moissanite, like Diamond is also a highly lusterous stone. This means that the surface of the stone appears slick and shiny at all times. For this reason, a Moissanite shows it’s strengths even in cuts that don’t ordinarily create much sparkle. A round cut is the most sparkly gemstone cut you can get, but even step cut Moissanites (Emerald and Asscher cuts) display far more shine and sparkle than other gemstones would.
TRUTH or DARE?
Because the price of a Moissanite is only 1/10 or less the price of a Natural Diamond, and also because Moissanites are primarily grown in white (colorless) form, many people like to pass off their Moissanites as Diamonds. Moissanites actually test as Diamonds when using a laser Diamond Tester. The tester reads the hardness of the stone and since the 9.25 is so close to Diamond’s 10, it will actually read the Moissanite stone as a Diamond.
