Discovered in 1893
Born from the stars, Moissanite was first discovered in 1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan, who later won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He discovered microscopic particles of the gem that would later bear his name, in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth. He initially thought that he had discovered diamonds, but later determined that the crystals were composed of silicon carbide.

Stop the Environmental Destruction of our Beautiful Planet
Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral, silicon carbide, that is found in limited quantities in the earth. While moissanite exists in nature, it is so incredibly rare that it must be created in a lab to produce pieces large enough to cut into gemstones. When cut and faceted, moissanite is by definition, the world’s most brilliant gem.
We only use lab-grown diamonds and sustainable diamond alternatives because mined diamonds have a history of conflict, human suffering, and environmental abuse—the exact opposite of what a jewelry should represent.
