Traded in other countries:CDR.Germany
Charles & Colvard, Ltd., a North Carolina corporation was founded in 1995. The Company manufactures, markets, and distributes Moissanite jewels for sale in the worldwide jewelry market. Moissanite, also known by its chemical name of silicon carbide, or SiC, a rare mineral first discovered in a meteor crater. Because naturally occurring SiC crystals are too small for commercial use, larger crystals are grown in the laboratory. The Company is the sole source worldwide of lab-created Moissanite jewels. The Company obtains the majority of its SiC crystals from Cree, Inc. It mainly sells loose moissanite jewels to some of the largest jewelry manufacturers and distributors in the world, which mount them into fine jewelry. It has also begun to wholesale a limited amount of finished moissanite jewelry. The Company mainly sells near-colorless moissanite jewels cut in a variety of shapes including round, square brilliant, cushion, radiant, pear, marquise, and oval in sizes ranging from approximately 2 to 12 millimeters (approximately 0.03 to 5.3 carats). To evaluate the market potential of colored moissanite, it had produced and distributed with moderate success a limited quantity of green moissanite jewels but, to date, it has not elected to expand these product offerings. In Future the Company may elect to offer, from time to time, additional cuts, sizes, and colors of moissanite jewels. The Company has these same patents in a number of foreign jurisdictions. In addition the company has certain trademarks and pending trademark applications that support its moissanite branding strategy. The Company sells moissanite jewelry to its consumers through channels, including single- and multiple-location independent jewelry stores, jewelry store chains, online, television shopping channels, department stores, and catalogs. It mainly sells to distributors and finished jewelry manufacturers, which in turn sell to retailers. It is subject to governmental regulations in the manufacture and sale of moissanite jewels and finished jewelry.
