I am so excited to share with you all this amazing gemstone, Moissanite! If you haven’t heard about Moissanite before, I know you are going to fall in love!
Love the look of a diamond, but worry where it might come from? Moissanite is the best option out there for gemstones that are ethically sourced and conflict free. Charles & Colvard® Moissanite is made in the USA (right in North Carolina!) so you can be confident in your choice. I had the pleasure of getting to visit the company headquarters and it was so much fun to see how these stones are made. Moissanite is man-created pure silicon carbide, who’s hardness rivals that of any mineral on Earth, resulting in an amazing gemstone free of environmental and ethical issues.
The really great part? It is much more affordable than a diamond, so you can still get that look you love without breaking the bank (No, your fiancé does not have to spend 3 months of their salary on an engagement ring). Not only does it have more fire, brilliance, and luster than a diamond, but it is the only other gem that lasts a lifetime. You know here at Glamour & Grace we love heirloom pieces and Moissanite is a great choice to be passed down generations.
