The Brilliance and Fire of Moissanite

The superior brilliance and fire of Moissanite, created by Charles & Colvard, make it unlike any jewel ever seen.

Compare a Moissanite jewel's brilliance and fire to any other jewel and you will see why we say it is unlike any jewel ever seen. The following photographs demonstrate why Moissanite's superior brilliance and fire make it a jewel whose stunning beauty is unmatched by any other.

Moissanite's Brilliance and Fire

Diamond

A one carat diamond in water with a high intensity light shining on it. The effective brilliance (refractive index) is displayed by the length of the light specks and the size of the ring of specks in proximity to the centre of the diamond. The fire (dispersion) is displayed by the spectrum of colour associated with each speck.

Moissanite

A one carat Moissanite jewel in water with a high intensity light shining on it. The superior brilliance (refractive index) is clearly displayed by the increased length of the light specks and the larger size of the ring of specks. The superior fire (dispersion) is clearly displayed by the deep, intense spectrum of colour associated with each speck.
