Lab-Created Gemstones, the Perfect Pop of Color

Article by

Our lab-created gemstones are grown using the most scientifically advanced processes - which produce REAL rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and alexandrites, with identical physical, optical and chemical make-up to their natural gemstone equivalent.

Our selection of lab-created gems are sourced from Chatham Gemstones. Chatham is the world’s leading producer of high-quality laboratory-grown gems, using a single growing method called Flux Fusion - where the crystal grows on the ‘seed’ in its natural crystal shape.


Sapphires are associated with blessings, divine knowledge, sincerity, and faithfulness. Sapphire is the birthstone for September and the gem of the 5th and 45th anniversaries.

While all colors of sapphire are beautiful (we also carry pink and yellow) the most popular color, especially for engagement rings are blue sapphires.

Alexandrite is the very rare color-change variety of the mineral chrysoberyl and is often described as “emerald by day, ruby by night,” because it changes color from bluish-green in fluorescent light to brownish or purplish red in incandescent light.

Alexandrite is a birthstone for June and is also the gem for the 45th and 55th wedding anniversary.

Morganite comes from the same mineral (Beryl) as Emerald gemstones, however, it is distinctly different in color, as Morganite is a feminine peachy-pink color which comes from traces of manganese. Morganite is known for being the gem of relaxation and health and is flattering to most skin tones.
