RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., May 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Charles & Colvard, Ltd. (Nasdaq: CTHR), the original and leading worldwide source of created moissanite, today announced the addition of a new moissanite gemstone to the Forever OneTM family, the Duet Rose. This double-sided round gemstone boasts a unique, patent pending faceting pattern showcasing a total of 48 facets top to bottom. The gemstone is now available to trade partners, and consumers in 14k gold finished jewelry and loose gemstones on www.charlesandcolvard.com.
Originating in the 1500s, the rose cut typically features a flat base with a domed top that resembles the petals of a rose bud, giving it its vintage and iconic name. Advancements in cutting and design inspired the experts at Charles & Colvard to create a double-sided version that showcases crowns on each side, thereby eliminating the base. Duet Rose by Charles & Colvard® is available in round sizes that range from 0.054ct to 3.50ct diamond equivalent weight.
In addition to Duet Rose by Charles & Colvard®, the Company has introduced five new single-sided rose cut shapes – pear, oval, marquise, cushion and rectangular cushion. Together with the previously released round rose cut, this bouquet of roses expands the Company’s gemstone offering to over twenty shapes and cuts. An expanded assortment of thirty-six additional sizes in existing shapes are also now available to trade partners including cushion, cushion hearts & arrows, radiant, princess, Asscher, marquise, emerald, square brilliant, trillion and baguette.
“Our Charles & Colvard design team is driving innovation for our customers, bringing to market unique cuts such as Duet Rose by Charles & Colvard®,” said Suzanne Miglucci, President and CEO, Charles & Colvard. “We are thrilled to offer it – along with a beautiful bouquet of additional shapes in our single-sided rose cut – through our trade partners and at charlesandcolvard.com.”
