Add enduring style and sophistication to your jewelry collection with this lovely moissanite ring! Crafted from 14K white or yellow gold, the ring shines with one cushion brilliant cut 7mm moissanite and 30 round single cut moissanite stones, all in prong settings. Shining stones extend halfway down the band and also create a halo around the main stone for a dazzling effect.
The moissanite weight of the main stone is 1.49ct and the total moissanite weight, including the main stone, is 1.73ct. (both approximate). The diamond equivalent weight (DEW) of the main stone is 1.7ct, and the total DEW, including the main stone is 2.00ct. (both approximate). The ring measures 3/8"L x 3/4"W x 1/4"H.

Moissanite has very high dispersion and displays 2.4 times more fire than diamond (0.044). Its inherent high refractive index gives Moissanite a dazzling sparkle, while its precisely calibrated and carefully hand-cut facet patterns intensify fire and maximize brilliance.
Moissanite is extremely durable. It is harder (more resistant to scratching) than ruby or sapphire – second only to diamond – and it is resistant to breakage.
Larger sizes of near-colorless Moissanite (6.5mm or 1 carat and larger) might appear to have a slight color. A variety of factors, such as dispersion, tint and the type of jewelry setting, can create and affect this unique color appearance. Moissanite aficionados enjoy the slight hue that results in a very natural-looking gemstone.
Moissanite’s high dispersion produces flashes of rich rainbow (spectral) colors. The appearance and degree of these tints are less noticeable when Moissanite is set in jewelry. Jewelry set in gold (yellow, rose or white) and/or set in platinum will affect the face-up appearance of Moissanite.
Nobel Prize-winning chemist Dr. Henri Moissan discovered minute quantities of natural silicon carbide (later named Moissanite in his honor) while analyzing part of Arizona’s Diablo Canyon meteorite crater in 1893. Upon close inspection, he noticed the tiny crystals shimmered with brilliance and dispersion, although they were too limited in quantity and not large enough to use in jewelry.
Almost 100 years after Dr. Moissan's amazing discovery, Charles & Colvard, with the aid of science, developed a way to create Moissanite. Appreciated for its overwhelming brilliance, Moissanite continues to take the jewelry world by storm.
Brilliance: The white light leaving a jewel, traveling upward, which is visible to the eye. Brilliance is sometimes referred to as "sparkle."
Dispersion: Flashes of rainbow colors. Also called "fire."

Luster: The shininess of a jewel.
Toughness: Resistance to breakage.
