Forever One in Fancy Shapes
Fancy shapes and unique gemstone options have grown increasingly popular, especially among millennials seeking the latest moissanite trends. Charles & Colvard addresses this changing market with the release of four new Forever One shapes: heart, marquise, princess, and trillion.
Charles & Colvard COO and SVP of Supply Chain, Don O’Connell, believes these new fancy shape choices will help you meet growing customer demand. And they’ll let you and your customers explore new design options that accentuate the fire and brilliance of our moissanite. O’Connell looks forward to seeing the fashion-forward designs jewelers achieve with them.
Today, the princess cut is one of the most popular cuts for engagement rings. In the 1960s and 70s, its precursors included the profile cut, the barion cut, and the quadrillion cut. The Forever One princess boasts 58 chevron-shaped facets that maximize moissanite’s fire and brilliance. In fact, the princess cut is the most brilliant of all square cuts due to the number of facets dispersing light throughout the stone.
In 1463, a letter to the Duke of Milan mentioned a heart-shaped gemstone. Since then, the heart has become a universal symbol of love, friendship, and goodwill. The shape is considered unique because cutting it demands intensive labor and specialized tools. Our Forever One heart-shaped gemstone has 57 facets that help to enhance its sparkle.
The marquise cut originated in the 18th century when King Louis XV of France commissioned a jeweler to cut a gemstone in the shape of his mistress’ lips. This gemstone developed into the elongated, oval-shaped cut we know today. The Forever One marquise cut comes in a wide selection of sizes, from 0.07 DEW to 1.00 DEW.
Trillion cuts are highly versatile. Use them as center stones, accent stones or side stones. This fancy shape features rounded proportional edges. Despite its carat weight, its shallow cut and wide table make this shape appear larger to the consumer. The Forever One trillion has 44 facets and ranges from 0.09 DEW to 1.60 DEW. This cut can lower the intensity of a gemstone’s brilliance, but due to moissanite’s unrivaled optical properties, it still exhibits more sparkle than any other gemstone.
Forever One Exotic Gems
In September 2017, Charles & Colvard introduced Exotic Gems, made-to-order gemstones ranging from 6 to 15.5 carats diamond equivalent weight. These bespoke gemstones come in cushion, emerald, hearts and arrows, oval, pear and radiant cuts. You can order Exotic Gems through Stuller’s Special Order service.
COO O’Connell says that Exotics Gems are unlike anything the market has seen. They free customers to express themselves with the bold pieces they want at an irresistible value.
Exotic Gems redefine moissanite trends and inspire fascinating jewelry. Crafted from premium Forever One moissanite, they are guaranteed to be colorless or near colorless. Once ordered, each Exotic Gem takes up to eight weeks to cut, polish and authenticate. Before delivery to the end consumer, every Exotic Gem goes through a rigorous certification process conducted by the Gemological Science International (GSI). They examine and assess each stone for color, size, and authenticity, before certification. GSI is an independent gemological organization that works with leading gem and jewelry companies to grade, test and examine gemstones using innovative technology.
