Moissanites are the best alternatives to a Diamond. Comprised of carbon and silicon, Moissanite is one of the most robust and hardest known elements on earth. They are manufactured while considering the environment. They are engineered to endure the test of time. Due to their higher Refractive Index, they sparkle more and the best thing, a Moissanite gemstone will cost you only 1/10th of the price of a diamond.
Laboratory produced Moissanites are made in such a way that they give the illusion of closeness to diamonds, but they are very different from real diamonds both in appearance and composition. Even other properties like endurance, brilliance, and colour of the two gems are pretty dissimilar.

Mainly composed of carbon and silica it has an incredible hardness of 9.25 making them second hardest material after diamonds. Thus they are not prone to scratches or become hazy with wear or dull with time or lose their visual attributes.
Only a laboratory can tell the difference between a Moissanite and a Diamond.
In 1905, this mineral was named Moissanite after the Nobel-Prize winning scientist Henri Moissan in his honour.

Three varieties of Moissanite:-

  1. Forever One Moissanite:- Charles & Colvard Forever One Moissanite is an achievement of art, science and sustained efforts. The structural arrangement of this specific moissanite material is what yields its unprecedented, colourless (D-E-F) quality. While it’s optical and hardness traits remain the same, it is the stacking of SiC substance that makes Forever One moissanite different from others.
  2. Forever Brilliant Moissanite:- Forever Brilliant Moissanite falls within the near-colourless G-H-I range. It was developed through advances to the crystal growing process from the original brand of Charles & Colvard. It offers subtle colour shades in the J – K range.
  3. Forever Classic Moissanite:- With constant efforts, Charles & Colvard developed the second grade of Forever One, in G-H-I quality which was named as Forever Classic. Possessing the same optical properties of the DEF quality moissanite, this one yields a warm tint.
