With the economy estimated to take longer than expected to recover, Charles & Colvard and Bird Capital Group mutually agreed to terminate their Management Services Agreement for the moissanite producer to remain competitive in the marketplace on July 2. 

Charles & Colvard also announced that Richard Bird resigned as a director and officer of the company. He has agreed to consult for Charles & Colvard until August 31, to assist in the transition to a new management team, according to a recent company announcement.
