Charles & Colvard Honors Milestones

Beginning Oct. 9, women will be asked to share their milestone memories in a contest featured in O, The Oprah Magazine, called “Milestone Moments.”  The contest, sponsored by Charles & Colvard created Moissanite and JCPenney, is a way to honor those significant events in every woman’s life that have marked her progress, moved her forward and created who she is today. 

From Oct. 9 through Jan. 16, 2008, women across the nation will be encouraged to share their inspirational stories in the “Milestone Moments” contest by visiting www.Omagazine.info/moissanite. At the completion of the contest, a grand prize winner will be selected to share her full story in O, The Oprah Magazine, and on Oprah.com. The winner will also receive a one of a kind platinum pendant set with an approximate 5 ct. round, brilliant-cut moissanite jewel surrounded and accented with micro-set diamonds valued at $10,500.

“Moissanite is fast becoming the must-have piece in today’s fine jewelry industry,” said Beryl Raff, general merchandise manager of fine jewelry for JCPenney. “It is an ideal gift for celebrating the key milestone achievements in a women’s life.”

“This contest is a way for us to honor extraordinary women who live brilliantly, celebrating her intricacies of spirit, individuality and milestone achievements,” said Bob Thomas, chief executive officer of Charles & Colvard, Ltd. “We hope this contest will help to create another unforgettable milestone moment in the winner’s life.”
