Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. ~ Harriet Tubman

Moissanite is a relatively recent discovery when compared to other gems, and its discovery is credited to Dr. Henri Moissan. While collecting samples in Canyon Diablo, Arizona, he happened upon some new crystals. He was exploring the Barringer Crater, a well preserved meteor impact crater of great geological importance. The natural form of moissanite is incredibly rare, as it really is a gem from out of this world.

Think of the impact a gift of solid 14k yellow gold and a brilliant moissanite solitaire would make on someone you love. With a gemstone measuring 6.5mm round (diamond equivalent of 1 Carat), you can be sure that she’ll be awed beyond comprehension. Because when you swore you’d give her the stars, you really did!

This gorgeous ring is also available in 14k white gold in our Moissanite Solitaire Ring, 14K White Gold. Both are part of our beautiful collection of Moissanite Solitaire Rings, itself part of the larger collection of Moissanite Jewelry.

Moissan at first thought that he had found diamonds of a dark greenish black color. Only after much analysis was conducted did he find he had discovered a completely new gem. In 1904, he called his discovery silicon carbide. He spent the rest of his life trying to recreate  the mineral. After he died, it was renamed moissanite in his honor.

A tiny box can hold a huge gift, and such is the case when she finds this special treasure tucked into her stocking at Christmas or presented during Hanukkah. The 1.42 carat moissanite, princess-cut stud earrings are crafted in no less than 14k white gold, set spectacularly in classic 4-prong baskets. The way these beauties will sparkle and shine in her ears will draw look everywhere she goes. Of course, when you give someone stars, they only have eyes for you! Handset in the U.S.A; please allow approx. 4-5 business days prior to shipping. Available in varying carat sizes and precious metal colors including the stunning 1.82 Carat Princess-Cut Moissanite Stud Earrings, 14K Yellow Gold. These are both part of our impressive collection of Moissanite Earrings, which also includes the ravishing Forever Brilliant 1 Carat Green Moissanite Earrings!

While Dr. Moissan was discovering his rare find, another man—Edward G. Acheson—was trying to synthesize diamonds. In 1891, he produced his first synthetic sample of silicon carbide. A company called Cree, Inc, was working to synthesize pure crystals of this mineral, and they recognized the potential as a diamond simulant. Charles & Colvard emerged from Cree, and they were able to produce several varieties of moissanite, one comparable to the best colorless diamonds.
