All about Moissanite Jewelry

While a perfectly white moissanite stone is impossible to create, the fact that its dispersive strength is 2.5 times that of a diamond makes moissanite jewellery very impressive. The fact that it is also very costly (moissanite costs about $520 per carat) makes it both valuable and trendy.

Moissanite as a jewellery medium has sparked a lot of debate, with the majority of it centred on its high rate of fluorescence (which makes it appear grey or green under natural light). Nonetheless, it has become a focal point for the jewellery industry due to its intense exclusivity.If you wish to learn more about this,look at this site.

It took a lot of effort to get to that point. Cree Inc. (a semiconductor manufacturer) patented a viable method for synthesising Moissanite into large individual crystals, and Moissanite became commercially exploitable. In 1995, after being alerted to the potential of moissanite in jewellery by a skilled diamond craftsman, Charles & Colvard, Ltd. partnered with Cree Inc. and initiated a major multimedia campaign to promote it.

The partnership still has a total monopoly on the manufacture of synthetic moissanite. To make jewelry-grade moissanite stones, the company uses a method that involves cutting appropriately sized ‘preforms,’ making them hand-crafted and polished by experts, and then forming them with precision finishing tools that use diamond chips for the abrading process. The method is repeated until a gem-quality stone emerges.

Moissanite is now often used in national and international jewellery shows, and it attracts a lot of press. For those who are unsure about moissanite jewelry’s exclusivity, moissanite is usually set only in fine precious metals such as gold, platinum, and silver. Furthermore, only approved retailers sell moissanite jewellery, which comes with a certificate of authenticity and a lifetime warranty from Charles & Colvard, Ltd.
