Wow that is alot of useful information right there! Normally Im not a moissy fan especially the round cut that are trying to mimic a diamond…they just dont quite pull it off but yours is absolutely beautiful. Such a beautiful choice and while it doesnt look like a diamond, it also doesnt look like it is trying to be one if that makes sense, it is so stunning in its own right. I would be more than happy to rock that bling….I bet you get loads of ooohs and aaaahs

Two North Carolina brothers and their companies are discovering that creating fake diamonds can be as difficult as mining the real thing.

One company, C3, of Morrisville near Research Triangle Park, went public in November with the mission of turning a lab-created mineral called moissanite into brilliant and inexpensive gems resembling diamonds. The other firm, Cree Research, a more established Durham-based semiconductor-material maker, produces the material that is the basis for moissanite…..

 The companies are run by brothers Jeff Hunter….. (read rest in link)
