10.0 MM Cushion Cut Forever Brilliant® Moissanite by Charles & Colvard 81 Facets – Very Good Cut (4.18ct Actual Weight, 5.02ct. Diamond Equivalent Weight) The Cushion Cut is one of the earliest forms of the modern brilliant cut and one of the most popular cuts of Moissanite. Forever Brilliant® Moissanite’s have optical properties significantly whiter than the standard very good “VG” grade Moissanite’s, with the perfect balance of sparkle and brilliance reflecting the maximum potential of light. Cushion Cut Forever Brilliant® Moissanite’s make great gemstones for engagement rings, a beautiful pair of stud earrings, or pendants. Every Charles & Colvard created Moissanite jewel is carefully hand-cut, inspected and sorted by master gem cutters to create maximum brilliance and fire, only the finest Moissanite stones are chosen to become Forever Brilliant® gemstones. Once the stone has been selected, they are treated using a two-step process, which can leave the stone up to 4 color shades whiter than the standard Moissanite gemstones. The treatment is not a surface coating; the entire stone is treated, which means that even if the stone is cut down to a smaller size, it will still retain the whiter color. Charles and Colvard Forever Brilliant® Moissanite’s are grown in a laboratory setting and are not mined. Moissanite gemstones are actually more brilliant and have more fire than diamonds. On the Mohs scale, a diamond is rated to have a hardness of 10 Mohs, while a Moissanite is nearly the same at 9.25 Mohs. Moissanite gemstones have a VS-2 clarity with no visible flaws. Each Forever Brilliant® Moissanite is laser engraved on the girdle of the stone. Shipped in a loose stone display box with Certificate of Authenticity and Limited Warranty.
