October 13, 2022 at 7:37 AM EDT

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Oct. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Charles & Colvard, Ltd. (Nasdaq: CTHR) (the "Company"), a globally recognized fine jewelry company specializing in lab grown gemstones, today announced the scheduled opening of a brick-and-mortar showroom for customers to be able to experience the sentiment of the brand in person.

Slated to open on Monday, October 24th, 2022 at the Company's Morrisville, NC campus, the approximately 2,000 square foot Signature Showroom will give customers the ability to see and feel the difference of the company's made, not mined™ fine jewelry artistry before purchasing it.

With a fusion of color and an integration of video technology built into the showroom's backdrop, the Research Triangle-based location is designed to make an impression and immerse the consumer in the brand's mission. Sr. Director of Sales & Merchandising, Hillary Watson explained, "We wanted to create a space that allowed our customers to understand both what we believe and what we make – and to experience the full range of fine jewelry that the brand has to offer, including engagement, bridal & anniversary and our newest fashion collections."

The showroom's energy has been crafted to provide an elevated experience where new launches (like Charles & Colvard's Caydia® lab grown diamond men's bands, COUTURE Collection, pavé series, and just-announced lab grown precious Color Collection) can be viewed alongside classic bridal staples and their iconic Signature Collection.

"We believe with more and more couples interested in the provenance of their jewelry and alternatives to mined gemstones, the need for a space to understand and experience them in person has arrived," said Don O'Connell, President and CEO. "This isn't just a place for customers to see our product firsthand. This is an opportunity to educate and share the beauty of above ground, responsibly made jewelry with anyone who is interested," O'Connell concluded.

Staffed with a team of highly trained fine jewelry specialists, as well as in-house jewelers, the showroom will focus on engagement consultations and concierge services, and educating consumers on Charles & Colvard's consciously crafted product. In the future, the Company plans to use the new space for local business to host both private and corporate events, employee appreciation shopping, as well as a venue to celebrate local likeminded and ethically sourced brands and help showcase the talent and energy of the Triangle area.

They've since evolved their portfolio to include lab grown diamonds and lab grown precious color gemstones, and have made a commitment to attain 100% use of recycled precious metals.
