Charles & Colvard, Ltd. (NASDAQ:CTHR) , the sole source of created moissanite and Forever Brilliant(R), The World’s Most Brilliant Gem(R), has now made its new Survivor CollectionTM available for purchase online at, Charles & Colvard’s direct sales division.

The Survivor CollectionTM features unique and beautiful three-stone jewelry designs celebrating a cancer survivor’s journey. These exclusive designs consist of two brilliant, clear Forever Brilliant(R) stones flanking a pink center, signifying life before the diagnosis, the journey through treatment, and the magical moment when the doctor says you are clear.

The inspiration for the Survivor CollectionTM came from a true story of two special friends, one battling cancer and the other supporting and championing her friend through her struggle, and the search for something special to symbolize the brilliant promise of the future ahead.

Susan K. Paist, President of SKP Concepts, Inc., said, “The Survivor CollectionTM, inspired by my relationship with my friend, offers cancer survivors a new and unique way to celebrate their fight and survival. I feel Forever Brilliant(R) is the ideal gemstone with which to craft the special survivor pieces that will inspire conversations for years to come. My choice of Forever Brilliant(R) gems created by Charles & Colvard, a unique, near-colorless gem that is distinct from other gemstones, is based on its exceptional fire, brilliance, luster, durability and rarity. The collection is unique to the market with suggested retail pricing from $189.99, which vary by retailer depending on settings and stone sizes. The Survivor CollectionTM is beautiful, brilliant and impressive, just like the survivors it celebrates. I am honored to be involved with this project.”

Charles & Colvard will donate five percent of retail sales of Survivor CollectionTM merchandise to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Additionally, an alliance was formed with the Women Survivors Alliance resulting in the Survivor CollectionTM debuting last month at The National Women’s Survivors Convention at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The National Women’s Survivors Convention brings together women survivors of all ages, all stages and all cancers.

Randy N. McCullough, Chief Executive Officer of Charles & Colvard, said, “We intend for the Survivor CollectionTM to be a wonderful way to celebrate cancer survival and aid research. We have been eager to form a cause-related partnership for Forever Brilliant, and relationships with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Women Survivors Alliance provide us the opportunity to support cancer for women in a meaningful way. We hope women will be inspired to share their personal stories through our Survivor CollectionTM jewelry, and are encouraged to do so at”

Mr. McCullough continued, “We are thrilled to have commitments to sell our new collection in both Boscov’s 43 department stores throughout the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, New York, Delaware and Ohio, and Rogers & Hollands and Ashcroft & Oak Jewelers, a family-owned and operated fine jewelry business with almost 80 stores operating in the greater Midwest. Additionally, we look forward to expanding our retail base to other select independent jewelers throughout the United States and Canada, as the initial reception we have received from retailers about the Collection has been overwhelmingly positive.”
