Who is Charles & Colvard?

Charles & Colvard is the original creator of moissanite and is dedicated to offering environmentally and ethically responsible choices in the fine jewelry industry. Based in the Research Triangle of North Carolina, Charles & Colvard has been creating moissanite for over 20 years while masterfully refining the way these beautiful, man-made gemstone are produced. 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 at a revolutionary value.

Is Moissanite a synthetic diamond?

Moissanite is not a synthetic diamond. Charles & Colvard created Forever One™ moissanite; these gemstones are unique, with their own set of chemical and optical properties, and exhibit more fire and brilliance than any other gemstone.

How does Moissanite compare to Diamond?

Moissanite has many properties which make it an excellent alternative to a diamond. Moissanite has a hardness of 9.25, making it more durable than any gemstone except diamond which has the highest score of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. When it comes to heat resistance, moissanite can withstand over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, more than even a diamond. Just like diamonds, moissanite is highly resistant to breaking and chipping. Moissanite has been scientifically proven to possess more brilliance and more fire than any other gemstone, including diamond. While a diamond may have been mined from an inhumane and unethical source, moissanite are lab created and are guaranteed to be responsibly sourced. Ultimately, a moissanite will shine brighter and is about as durable as a diamond, for a fraction of the cost.

Do Moissanite and Diamond look similar in sunlight?

The most significant optical property that affects a gem's brilliance is the refractive index (RI). The RI of moissanite ranges from 2.65 to 2.69, meaning that it displays and disperses more brilliance than even a diamond which has an RI of 2.42.

Is moissanite graded on the GIA diamond color grading scale?

There are two grades of Forever One™ moissanite available today: colorless (D-E-F range) and near-colorless (G-H-I range). *Based on the GIA diamond grading scale.

What sizes and shapes are available?

Forever One™ moissanite gems are available in all shapes and sizes. Ella Rose typically sells moissanite between 0.50 and 5.00 carats (as measured using the diamond equivalent weight in carats). Our most popular shapes are the classic round brilliant cut and fancy-cuts such as asscher, cushion, and oval.

Why is moissanite sold by millimeter rather than by carat weight?

The carat is the traditional unit of measurement when weighing a diamond. Moissanite is not traditionally measured in carats because it weighs approximately fifteen percent less than diamond. For example, a 6.5mm round diamond would weigh 1.0ct, while a 6.5mm round moissanite would weigh 0.88ct. The two stones would be the same size - 6.5mm in diameter. All stones for sale are listed with their size in millimeters and the diamond equivalent weight (DEW) in carats.

Are moissanite conflict-free gemstones that are ethically sourced?

Yes. Forever One™ Moissanite are responsibly grown with minimal environmental impact within a lab located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Are Forever One™ gemstones available as part of the Upgrade Program?

Is Forever One™ moissanite resistant to scratching?

Yes. Moissanite is durable, tough and extremely resistant to scratching and abrasion. With a hardness of 9.25, moissanite is harder than all other gemstones except diamond.

Does moissanite break easily?

No. Moissanite is one of the toughest known gemstones. Studies in high pressure research have shown that moissanite is highly resistant to breaking and chipping. Charles & Colvard provides a Limited Lifetime Warranty that protects against damage to the stone.

Will moissanite fade or change color over time?

No. There are no likely situations in which the color of moissanite will be permanently changed.

How should I care for my moissanite jewelry?

You may clean moissanite the same way you would diamond or any other fine gemstone. As with any fine jewelry item, an ultrasonic cleaner can be used. However, it is best to be gentle with your valuable treasures. You can also clean your moissanite jewelry using a commercial (non-acid based) jewelry cleaner or with mild soap and water using a soft toothbrush.

Can moissanite withstand repairs and sizing?

Yes. Moissanite is an extremely stable and durable material. Its high heat tolerance makes it very unlikely to experience damage during jewelry repair.

Do I need to insure my Moissanite engagement ring?

We recommend that all engagement rings be properly insured.

Will I receive an insurance appraisal for my Moissanite engagement ring?

Ella Rose provides a complimentary letter of value with each engagement ring purchase. This letter of value represents the suggested retail price for the stated item. Due to constant market fluctuations of gemstones and metals we recommend that jewelry values be updated every two to three years.
