What's unique to this piece is the rare grey moissanite, the feature element in this ring. Moissanite is a diamond alternative that is most commonly desired in colorless varieties (like diamonds), but sometimes the crystals grow in natural colors like green and grey. The colors are often difficult to reproduce, so when you see the one you like, it's best to snag it! The stone is 7.1mm and looks about like a 1.6ct diamond equivalent.
We've set the diamond in our signature Evergreen carved solitaire: a 4-prong setting with hand carved detail, cast in 100% recycled 14k yellow gold. The ring currently has a polished finish. We can give a matte, satin finish for you instead by request.
The ring is currently a size 6 and is resizable at no charge. Once resized, however, it is non refundable. Please allow an additional 1-2 weeks for resizing. If you would like us to resize it, please select your desired ring size in the dropdown on this listing.
A century ago, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Henri Moissan discovered minute quantities of a new mineral in an ancient meteorite in Arizona. At its essence was the potential for an absolutely shimmering brilliance, fire, luster, and incredible hardness. Unfortunately, the supply of natural moissanite wasn't large enough even to create a pair of earrings. It was only after years of research that a breakthrough discovery enabled the limited production & distribution of moissanite "a new diamond simulate" by Charles & Colvard, with crystals large enough to produce an uncommon combination of science and art.
Properly cut by master cutters, the comparison to fine diamonds is unavoidable, moissanite has measurably more fire, brilliance and luster at a fraction of the cost of diamond. This specific moissanite is a natural grey color from an unbranded manufacturer.
Making a Difference:
Help fight climate change with this purchase! Trees are like the lungs of the planet...our "natural air purifiers." They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife and play a vital role in our natural water cycle. Forests help regulate the water in the air through a process called transpiration. They absorb thousands of gallons of water into their roots. Excess water is then released through the leaves back into the air. For every purchase made, I donate one planted tree through Plant-It 2020. Small changes by individuals can make a difference in the fight against climate change.
