Moissanite Curve BraceletMineralogy
A dainty moissanite rests in the curve of this textured gold arc bracelet.
Moissanite is set in a solid 14k gold bezel and measures 2 mm. The bracelet is 14k gold fill and the curve measures approximately 13 x 16 mm. It is flexible brass and measures approximately 6" in circumference. The metal has a hammered, scattered-lines texture and a polished finish.
Moissanites are brilliant, sparkling stones which are often referred to as "space diamonds." They are incredibly durable, resistant to high heat, and rival diamonds in many arenas. Moissanite was first discovered by French chemist Henri Moissan in 1893 in a meteor crater in Arizona.
