Regardless of trending styles and best selling lab grown diamonds, the Forever One diamonds score much higher in all categories.

The Moissanite stone is the second hardest gemstone right after diamonds, which is why Charles and Colvard guarantee their gemstones to last forever.

What is the Difference Between "Forever One" and "Ice Moissanite?"

There are a few differences between our Ice Moissanites and Forever One Moissanites by Charles & Colvard. Let's take a look at the differences between the two gemstones.

Ice Moissanite

Ice Moissanite is arguably the most popular type of gemstone following natural diamonds. This type of lab grown diamond provides customers with the ability to purchase perfect, ethical gemstones which look and act like diamonds. When purchasing an ice Moissanite gemstone, customers can rest assured that every stone they will be getting is perfect as they are man made and they will be ethically sourced. In it's natural form, Moissanite is extremely rare to find. It was discovered in 1893 by a French scientist called Henri Moissan who found the stone in a creator created by a meteor. Today, scientists have perfected the art of creating Moissanite in a lab, creating stunning jewellery out of the latest styles and exclusive fashion trends. Ice Moissanite jewellery is also extremely popular as the price tag is not nearly as high as natural diamonds. This makes ice Moissanite affordable yet stunning.

Forever One Moissanite

Forever One is the name which Charles and Colvard have trademarked for their lab grown diamonds. The Forever One Moissanite diamond is unique and quite frankly unmatched to other Moissanite diamonds on the market, as these diamonds are created and grown using a patented process, resulting in man made diamonds which are far superior to any other Moissanite diamonds on the market. They are then cut using a revolutionary process unique to Charles and Colvard titled "Revolutionary Cut," which uses unique specifications to ensure that the fire and brilliance of these stones are like no other. With unbelievable brilliance, fire, hardness and sparkle, Forever One Moissanite diamonds are sure to be the same in 50 years as they are today.
