Moissanite Comparison: F1 vs MC vs AGS0
MoissaniteCo proudly offers three brands of Moissanite:
1) Forever One Moissanite
Forever One Moissanite is widely recognized as the most premium brand of Moissanite in the market. Created by Charles & Colvard, a US-based company, it stands as the original creator of Moissanite gems, with a wealth of experience in creating and faceting Moissanite gems that is unparalleled. The Moissanite crystals produced by this company are considered the best in the world.
Since 2005, MoissaniteCo.com has been a trusted vendor of Charles & Colvard Moissanite gems, including the highly sought-after Forever One Moissanite. These gems are distinguished by their colorless appearance, excellent cut, and near flawless clarity, making them a top choice for consumers seeking high-quality Moissanite jewelry. We are proud to feature Forever One Moissanite as our core Moissanite brand, and are committed to offering our customers the very best in Moissanite gems.
2) MoissaniteCo Brand
In 2017, we launched the MoissaniteCo brand as a cost-effective alternative to our premium line. Our MoissaniteCo brand is designed to cater to customers seeking high-quality Moissanite gems, without necessarily requiring a brand name. These gems are made from the same type of Moissanite crystals as those used in our Forever One brand, ensuring that customers receive the same level of quality at a more affordable price point.
Our MoissaniteCo brand gems are among the best alternatives to the Forever One Moissanite brand available on the market. While an expert eye may discern subtle differences, many of our customers are unable to differentiate between the two, given their remarkable similarity. Like our Forever One Moissanites, MoissaniteCo brand Moissanites are also colorless, exhibit an excellent cut, and possess near-flawless clarity, making them an excellent choice for those seeking the highest standards in Moissanite jewelry and an excellent value.
3) AGS0 Super Ideal Cut Moissanite
Our AGS0 Moissanites are expertly crafted to meet the super ideal specifications for a round brilliant hearts and arrows diamond. They have achieved a "000" grade on the American Gemological Society's cut scale, which is the highest possible grade awarded to diamonds. In fact, our AGS0 Moissanites are cut to an even higher standard than 99% of diamonds currently available in the market. This level of precision ensures that the cut, symmetry, and polish are absolutely flawless.
Our AGS0 Moissanites are crafted in collaboration with European engineers who utilize cutting-edge robotic technology and computer systems to create them. The use of such advanced methods is a standout feature in the production of these stones as Moissanites are commonly hand-cut, with the quality of the cut depending on the cutter's experience, time, and resources. Robotic cutting enables exceptional precision and consistency in quality from stone to stone. Furthermore, the girdle of these Moissanites is faceted, which sets them apart from all other Moissanites available on the market.
Our inventory includes AGS0 super ideal cut Moissanites available in the round brilliant H&A cut, ranging from 0.75ct to 5ct in size. These exceptional stones possess remarkable colorlessness and near flawless clarity. On occasion, we may offer a limited inventory of near colorless stones upon request.
