Moissanite created by Charles & Colvard™ is an incredibly unique jewel, with nearly 2 ½ times the fire of diamond and 10% more brilliance. This extraordinary jewel is unlike any other, including diamond and CZ. Harder than sapphire and second only to diamond, moissanite stands the test of time, making it perfect for any occasion.

Moissanite’s stunning beauty was born from a rare geological find made more than 110 years ago. Discovered in 1893 by French Scientist, Dr. Henri Moissan (a Nobel Prize winner), moissanite can trace its origins to particles found in a meteor crater located in Arizona. These natural crystals were too scarce and tiny to set into jewelry. It took more than a century and the power of advanced technology before Charles & Colvard created Moissanite would be available to the world of fine jewelry.

Moissanite is becoming a well known jewel in the fashion industry. You’ll find it in the news, in newspapers, leading lifestyle and trade magazines and see it worn by celebrities, executives, socially conscious women, moms and daughters. Capturing the attention of people everywhere, moissanite is considered the “little black dress” of accessories – the perfect jewel to wear for all occasions and the perfect gift to give.

At the 2008 Southern Women’s Show, Belk, Inc. and Charles & Colvard, Ltd. will demonstrate the incredible brilliance, style and timeless beauty that is moissanite. To learn more about moissanite, please stop by booth #314-316 during the show that runs from Thursday, September 18th through Sunday, September 21st, 2008 at the Charlotte Merchandise Mart.
