It's one of the hardest gemstones known to man and its optical properties will never diminish.
Each gemstone is transformed to a higher standard of the Gemological Institute of America's near-colorless spectrum, up to four color grades whiter. At MoissaniteBridal.com, we guarantee our FOREVER BRILLIANT moissanite will never lose its brilliance or color and will retain its incredible beauty FOREVER. There's simply no greater symbol of enduring love. Certified FOREVER BRILLIANT Moissanite Â»

The rarity of natural moissanite crystals large enough for jewelry prohibits their use.For years, scientists tried to re-create this extraordinarily brilliant material. Only recently, through the power of advanced technology, Charles & Colvard developed a way to produce in a laboratory Moissanite is truly a unique and beautiful blend of art and science.

In comparison to natural diamonds (and GIA diamond clarity gradings), the clarity of a moissanite gemstone is similar to that of a VS diamond clarity grading. Tiny, needle-like inclusions invariably develop during the lab-created moissanite growth process. These inclusions can only be seen when magnified using at least a 10x loop. They're invisible to the un-aided eye. Since Charles & Colvard® moissanite is essentially lab-created using natural elements, Charles & Colvard (the sole manufacturer of moissanite) is able to control the entire process and ensure the highest quality gemstone with the greatest care in regards to "Clarity."
Charles & Colvard moissanite makes the grade
The clarity grading process of moissanite gemstones by Charles & Colvard is a strict one. Each individual jewel is examined for any inclusions by expert gemologists. If a moissanite gemstone doesn't pass Charles & Colvard's strict quality standards, it simply won't be made available for distribution.

The diamond has no inclusions when examined by an experienced grader using 10x magnification, but will have some minor blemishes.
