Are you looking to buy an engagement ring?  How about a pair of earrings, a bracelet, a necklace, or other pieces of jewelry?  If so, you’ll want to check out one of the hottest jewels on the market – Moissanite.

Charles and Colvard sells a new kind of jewel, the product of high technology. Called Moissanite, it shines even brighter than a diamond. Silicon carbide crystals are enjoying a new popularity among lovers of fine jewelry. Once only a scientific oddity, this stone was commercially synthesized in 1998 and immediately got discovered by the jewelry industry. Because of its amazing brilliance, it has now found an eager market and promises to become a classic of tomorrow. On Earth, Moissanite is so rare that there were once no known sources of it except from outer space.

The mineral is named after Dr. Henri Moissan, who in 1904 identified crystals of it in meteor fragments from Meteor Crater in Arizona. Natural specimens have since been found as inclusions in a few rock formations such as kimberlite and lamproite, but it remains one of the rarest minerals on Earth. Charles and Colvard is the company that changed this situation by patenting the process for synthesizing the crystals. Operating through their website, www.moissanite.com, they now offer gorgeous Moissanite jewelry showing the enormous potential of this β€œnew” stone. Moissanite crystals reflect more light than diamonds, so they sparkle brighter and never fail to catch the eyes of passersby. They look stunning in settings of white metal as earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets. For those who want even more light, Charles and Colvard offers Forever Brilliant, a new form of Moissanite with four times the whiteness of conventional Moissanite and ten percent more brilliance than diamond.
