Just in time for the holiday season, Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite ® fine jewelry from Charles & Colvard, Ltd. (NASDAQ:CTHR), the original and leading worldwide source of moissanite , has been added to the display counters at all 44 Boscov's Department stores located in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, and Ohio as well as its online store at Boscovs.com.

At a fraction of the price of comparable diamond jewelry, Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® has more fire and brilliance than diamond and greater hardness than sapphire, emerald, or ruby.

Marvin Beasley, President and CEO of Charles & Colvard said, "Bringing our fine moissanite jewelry to Boscov's many loyal customers for this upcoming holiday selling season is very exciting. We are confident that their associates and customers will appreciate the quality, beauty, and value of our fine jewelry featuring moissanite, the World's Most Brilliant Gem®."

Tejmohan Sawhney, Vice President/DMM, Jewelry at Boscov's said, "This is a great opportunity for Boscov's Department Stores as we believe that Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® is a fantastic incremental business for our fine jewelry department. Our customers will love the large stone settings that moissanite provides at such an extraordinary value and we believe introducing this beautiful gemstone during the holiday season is a great benefit for Boscov's. We believe this gemstone is exactly what our customers are looking for."

Each Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite gemstone comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a Limited Lifetime Warranty from Charles & Colvard, attesting that each gemstone meets the highest standards of Charles & Colvard's quality specifications. As natural moissanite's origins come from meteorites, found only in minute quantities on Earth, Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite's manufacturing process mimics nature, as each crystal is grown slowly, subjecting it to tremendous heat and pressure for days until a crystal of moissanite takes shape (as such, moissanite can withstand temperatures that would dissolve diamonds). Each stone is cut and polished by Master craftsmen, then only the stones with the best clarity are chosen to become one of the Charles & Colvard Forever Family.
