Lulu Avenue is a new direct sales jewelry company established and operated by Charles & Colvard, LLC., a subsidiary of the well-renowned Charles & Colvard, LTD, which is the only company to commercially manufacture Moissanite gemstones. Lulu Avenue was established as a means to make Moissanite jewelry available to a wider demographic, which is why it employs the popular direct sales business model. It was officially launched on October 2011 and because of the growing popularity of Moissanite, the company had no trouble finding a comfortable spot in the ever-growing direct sales industry.
With the launch of this new direct sales venture, Charles & Colvard aims not only to reach out to a bigger market but also to give interested direct sales consultants and budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to start their own direct sales business.
Lulu Avenue Products
Lulu Avenue’s flagship collection is their Moissanite Jewelry line, featuring earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets embellished with precious moissanite gemstones. Henri Moissan discovered the gemstone moissanite in 1893. The gemstone was discovered from a meteor crater and was first mistaken to be diamonds. It is composed mainly of silicon carbide and was later named as Moissanite. However, due to the rarity of moissanite, it would have been impossible to make it commercially available like other gemstones. It was Charles & Colvard, LTD, that took on the task of making moissanite gemstones out of pure silicon carbide. Cut like diamonds and refined through a series of chemical processes, the company was able to introduce moissanite to the market in 1998. Now, they want to extend their line to the direct sales public through Lulu Avenue.
Their Moissanite collection features beautiful rings of clear Moissanite gems set in sterling silver. Some pieces even feature light green moissanite gemstones. Their moissanite pieces range from $200 to $1500, depending on the cut, carat, and setting of the stone on a particular jewelry piece.
Aside from Moissanite gems, Lulu Avenue also offers other jewelry pieces embellished with other stones, pearls, and beads. You can find an assortment of beaded necklaces and bracelets in bright colors, perfect for summer. If you are looking for more classic pieces, you can also turn to their “Pearl Girl” collection or their signature style collection. Regardless of your personal style and preference, you’ll surely find a piece or two from Lulu Avenue that is sure to tickle your fancy.
