The Science and Art behind Moissanite

From the mind of a scientist and the eye of an artist, we present Moissanite created by Charles & Colvard.

Charles & Colvard is the original creator of Moissanite gemstones. Today they create the premier Moissanite gemstones around the world. Charles & Colvard uses their own uncommon combination of art and proprietary science to turn these rare jewel-quality crystals into stunning Moissanite jewels.

To ensure the highest quality, all created Moissanite jewels are evaluated to exacting standards by specially trained gemologists, quality control personnel, and automated video imaging equipment.

Computer Modelling

Charles & Colvard's cutting specifications for Moissanite jewels are designed to maximise the brilliance and fire inherent in the material. To maximise the light reflecting from a faceted Moissanite jewel requires the design of shapes with proportions and angles unlike any other jewel.

Using computer modelling, they create proprietary designs to display the maximum light reflection based on the optical properties (i.e. fire, brilliance and lustre) of Moissanite jewels. A unique version of the round brilliant cut was the first shape developed applying these computer models. Since they designed new fancy shapes that eliminate dark areas commonly found in other gemstones with these fancy cuts. We believe these proprietary designs enhance Moissanite's physical properties for the superior optical performance observed in faceted Moissanite jewels.
