HOW IT ALL BEGAN
History of Iconic Grey Moissanite
Our Iconic line of moissanite is sold exclusively by Kristin Coffin Jewelry, and features super rare grey moissanites cut by our talented team of European stone cutters. As you may know, we quickly depleted our stock of discontinued grey moissanite that Kristin was lucky enough to buy from the discontinued vaults of Charles & Colvard many years ago. Rather than having to face the idea of saying goodbye to greys forever, we decided to launch our own line. After years of trial and error and testing out dozens of stone cutters and moissanite growers, we finally debuted our line of Iconic grey moissanite.
An Eco-Conscious Choice
Moissanite is a lab-grown gemstone since the moissanite mineral does not occur naturally here on earth. (In fact, moissanite was first discovered on a meteor from outer space that struck Earth!) The grey color occurs naturally during the moissanite crystal-growing process, which means our stones aren’t just coated with the grey color as some colored moissanites are, but rather grey all the way through the gem. That means your grey won’t fade or change over time.
LET’S TALK COLOR
Shades of Iconic Grey
Grey moissanite can range in shade from a medium smoky grey to a dark steel-hued grey with blueish undertones. In addition to the subtle differences in color from one stone to the next, each individual grey moissanite is also very chameleon-like. A single grey moissanite can shift from darker to lighter, and from cooler to warmer depending on the light source. For example, grey moissanite appears lighter and warmer when viewed outdoors on a cloudy or overcast day. Whereas indoors under artificial lighting, they appear very dark, deep, and moody. When viewed outdoors on a sunny day or in the shade, they'll have a more bluish undertone. We recommend checking out our Instagram account to see how they look in various lighting out in the world.
