Moissanite Jewelry



I had surgery at the end of June and the hospital had to cut my wedding set off my finger as it wouldn’t come off. It got destroyed which was not their fault, just how it happened. Since then I have been looking at new rings to replace it but haven’t found the right one yet. I was thrilled when Forever Brilliant contacted me asking me to take a look at their moissanite rings. I was able to choose from a few and couldn’t wait to receive it.




I will be the first to admit that I don’t know a ton about diamonds, stones or that type of thing. All i really know is that they look pretty and even prettier when they are on my finger. I wasn’t really sure what a Moissanite ring was so I looked it up.



“Moissanite is inspired by ancient stardust. Fifty thousand years ago, a meteorite flashed across the sky and landed in Arizona, creating Meteor Crater, a vast hole in the earth’s surface 570 feet deep and nearly a mile across, along with scattering meteorite fragments across the desert. Some landed a few miles away in nearby Canyon Diablo where in 1893, Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Henri Moissan discovered tiny sparkling crystals of silicon carbide. This new gem was later named moissanite in his honor by Tiffany & Co. gem expert and mineralogist George Kunz. Naturally-occurring moissanite is incredibly rare. Just a handful of crystals have been discovered, always in extreme environments like meteorites, upper mantle rock, or even as tiny inclusions inside diamonds.
A century later, the first large, gem quality crystals were successfully grown in a high-tech North Carolina lab. Charles & Colvard introduced the world to the brilliance and fire of gem-quality Moissanite in 1998 and today remains the sole source of created Moissanite gemstones.”
I was sent their Millaray 2.80 CTW three stone marquise ring set in 14k gold. The stock picture is very pretty but in person it looks even prettier. I’m very sensitive to metals and can only handle gold or platinum. So this ring being in gold is perfect for me.

My husband is super happy that I received it as this gets him off the hook (for a little while) of buying me a new ring. The ring is very light, fits perfect (whew because i wasn’t exactly sure of my size) and really sparkles. My oldest who is 11 saw it and wanted it (ummm, no it’s mine).


Looking through the huge selection of options, I see the prices are very competitive. I know that this ring would have cost way more than $1199.00 if I were to go to the mall and buy it from the jeweler there. I know i’m going to be looking through their selection again when it gets time to pick out my replacement wedding set.
