If you’re looking for an affordable and beautiful large center stone as the focal point of your engagement ring, Charles & Colvard’s Forever One moissanite could be a perfect choice. Ben Garelick Jewelers has long-recognized the elegance and strength of moissanite and has offered it as an alternative to diamond engagement rings for decades. Now we are bringing the highest quality moissanite gemstones made to our family of customers.
What Is Moissanite?
Nobel Prize-winning chemist, Dr. Henri Moissan first discovered this rare naturally occurring mineral inside a crater in Arizona. Also known as silicon carbide, moissanite (named after its discoverer) was not actually aggregated into gemstones until the late 1990s, when scientists created silicon carbide crystals using a thermal growing process. They found the crystals had amazing fire and brilliance with more strength than more common gemstones like diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. Charles & Colvard were one of the first to begin manufacturing moissanite for jewelry.
What Is The Forever One?
You know WHO your forever one is, and now you can add a Forever One moissanite to the most important piece of jewelry you will ever buy - her engagement ring. Forever One is Charles & Colvard’s patented premium brand of moissanite and it’s now available at Ben Garelick Jewelers. Forever One gems fall within the range of internally flawless to very slightly included (IF-VS). Such unmatched clarity is only available from the silicon carbide material they use to make the gemstones. The color, or lack thereof, of these gems is impeccable. Forever One gems are the outcome of over 20 years of continued innovation. They are available in two grades: colorless or near-colorless (DEF-GHI), and a variety of impeccable cuts.
Why Choose A Forever One Moissanite Engagement Ring?
The Forever One moissanite gemstone is helping create new standards within the fine jewelry industry. It’s 100% colorless and one of the most brilliant and affordable gemstones on the market. If you’re thinking of choosing a moissanite engagement ring over diamonds or other gemstones, consider these qualities of moissanite:
Brilliant sparkle & fire
Moissanite is well-known for having more sparkle than a diamond - natural or manmade. The Forever One has the most brilliant sparkle of all with a BRI ranging from 2.65 to 2.69 and a dispersion rate exceeding any gemstone at 0.104.
Tough as diamonds
One of the primary reasons that diamonds, rubies, and sapphires are so popular in engagement rings is that they are hard and durable. Forever One moissanite with a hardness of 9.25-9.5 is actually harder than all other gemstones except the diamond. We also provide a limited lifetime warranty that protects against any damage to the stone.
In a world where rare gemstones are not always produced ethically and in a manner safe for the environment, Ben Garelick is proud to work with companies like Charles & Colvard who prioritize environmental and ethical responsibility in the creation of moissanite.
Forever One moissanite is a brilliant choice at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent diamond.
