Asscher Cut Moissanite Solitaire Engagement Ring | 2.03 ctw Forever One Moissanite | 14k Recycled Gold


◊ A stunning asscher cut Forever One moissanite is set in a hand fabricated 14k recycled gold setting for a classic, yet unique engagement ring.

◊ Moissanite measures 8 mm on each side and weighs 2.03 ctw. It is bezel set in 14k yellow gold on a 14k yellow gold band. Band is round, measuring 2 mm in diameter. Shown in a polished finish, but may be finished in matté as well.

◊ Asscher cuts were first developed in 1902 by Joseph Asscher, and became most popular during the Art-Deco movement following World War I. This historical 58-facet design mimics the emerald cut, but offers increased sparkle with its unique octagonal shape. This type of cut creates a hypnotic mirrored pattern to showcase the clarity of the stone.

◊ Moissanite Asscher cuts feature 65 facets to accompany this gems’ double refractive crystalline structure, offering more than twice the brilliance and fire of diamonds.

◊ Moissanite was first discovered by French chemist Henri Moissan in a meteor crater in Arizona. Due to its scarcity, it is now a lab created gem by Charles & Colvard. Dr. Moissan's research identified them as a brand new mineral composition—silicon carbide, whereas diamonds are created from carbon. In nature, silicon carbide is created over millennia by a combination of extreme heat and pressure. At Charles & Colvard researchers re-create those conditions in a controlled, profoundly accelerated process which produces durable, super-hard crystals with a minimum of ecological impact…and absolutely no mining. In their research laboratory located in Central North Carolina, scientists perfected and patented the innovative process that creates silicon carbide crystals.

◊ These brilliant, sparkling stones are often referred to as "space diamonds." They are incredibly durable, resistant to high heat, and rival diamonds in many arenas. Their hardness measures a 9.25 on the Mohs scale, making them an excellent choice for wearability. Forever One is graded to be colorless in comparison to a diamond color chart. 

◊ A patented thermal growing process is used to create single-crystal raw moissanite gems. The process is lengthy, complicated, and expensive, which limits the output (it takes 2-3 months for the creation of a single gem).

◊ Because hand-cutting is the only way to release the brilliance that intensifies a gem’s fire, each and every Charles & Colvard moissanite is hand-cut by master gem cutters.
