With a hardness of 9, just like natural sapphires, a lab-created sapphire engagement ring will withstand the test of time. A sapphire grown in a lab is rated excellent for everyday wear, just like a natural sapphire. 

A lab-created sapphire is not an imitation. Rather, it is an actual sapphire grown in a human-controlled environment. This is similar to the way pearls are cultured. Once the required combination of chemical and environmental factors is duplicated from nature, the crystals grow over a year, the length of time depending on the gemstone.

Why Choose a Lab-Grown Sapphire?

Lab-Grown Sapphire vs. Earth-Mined Sapphire

Lab-grown sapphires exhibit identical atomic and optical properties compared to their naturally mined counterparts.  Unless you're a certified gemologist with a powerful microscope, you won't be able to tell the difference between lab-created and mined sapphires.  

Remarkably, in some cases, lab-created sapphires may even surpass their naturally sourced counterparts in visual appeal. You don't have to worry about inclusions, color zoning, or poor cutting.

Affordable Quality

There is a notable price difference between lab-grown sapphires and mined gemstones of comparable quality, which makes the former an excellent choice. Lab-grown sapphire is an excellent choice for those seeking an affordable precious gemstone without compromising the quality or sacrificing the aesthetic of their jewelry.

Environmentally Responsible Option

Selecting a lab-grown sapphire will provide you with a stunning gem that aligns with eco-conscious values. The crystal's formation within a controlled laboratory setting significantly reduces the environmental impact associated with traditional mining practices. Choosing a lab-grown sapphire contributes to sustainable practices that minimize the ecological footprint. Make a thoughtful and informed choice by embracing the environmentally responsible benefits of lab-grown gemstones.

Many Natural Color Choices

Just like earth-grown sapphires, lab-grown sapphires are available in many colors! Even the color-changing lab grown alexandrie! While Mother Nature does provide a nearly unlimited palette, the grown sapphire color options are highly desirable.
