WJA Raleigh | Charles & Colvard Tour and Education

Date(s): July 31, 2019

Time: 8:00 AM  EST - 10:30 AM  EST

The WJA is excited to offer a morning of education and training at Charles & Colvard. Please join us, along with a small group of your peers, to learn about and better understand moissanite. As the eco-concerned millennial generation moves into the bridal market, knowledge of moissanite will be an asset. Seating is limited to 12 people. Tickets are $25 for members and $15 for student members. Please click on the link for registration.


  • Introduction and overview of raw materials, growing cycles, cutting and faceting from Don O'Connell, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President, Supply Chain. 
  • Overview of grading to engraving and a Moissanite 101 presentation from Amber Denning, Sr. Manager, Gemstone Production and Kristina Wilke, Grading Supervisor.
  • Closing with an overview of Charles & Colvard and a peek into the beautiful showroom with finished jewelry. 

This is an exciting opportunity! Charles & Colvard has only opened up its doors to the public/industry on one previous occasion. Don't miss your chance!
