Things You Should Know About Lab-Created Gemstones

Lab-Created-GemstonesStones that are created in laboratories are chemically, optically, physically and optimally identical to those that are mined underground — but they have quite a fewer flaws, a lighter carbon footprint and cost less, too. Gemstones in jewelry are colorful, romantic and personal. They mean something different to each wearer. To a few, they are badges of success and wealth — just think about Hollywood stars at award shows drizzling with emeralds or rubies. While to others, they are meaningful as birthstones, legendary symbols of power, or candidly beloved as a favorite color of signature. Yet some of the gemstones are rarer, harder to get, and expensive. That’s why lab-created gemstones are available as substitutes.

Diamonds (white and fancy color), sapphires (blue and other colors), emeralds, rubies and opals are quite expensive and hard-to-find natural gems in jewelry and are also favorite lab-created stones. They’re not gem imitations; lab-created gemstones are the real deal. They are grown in a laboratory but are identical chemically, physically and optically to natural gems. Imitations, also synthetically made, don’t pursue mother nature’s recipe, therefore, they are completely different physically, chemically, optimally and optically from the natural gem it gets copied of.

The mineral composition of lab-created stones is created through a process similar to what nature does beneath the earth over millions of years, but in a laboratory, it is created at a fraction of the time, and at a fraction of the actual cost of mining. An average person would be hard pressed to find the difference between a natural and a lab-created stone. It takes a trained eye, high magnification and other instruments to tell the difference.

The main distention is that natural gems by and large have comprisal from the crystallization process — gases and other minerals mixing during the molten stage of stone creation. As lab-created stones await on a constant and controlled course of applying minerals, heat and pressure, they usually have fewer subsumption. Then you get high-quality lab-created stones, with prices significantly lower than their natural gemstone counterparts. With different setting options, from sterling silver to gold in many colors and carats, lab-created stones provide choices that even Mother Nature can’t give in the same way.

Additionally to get a rare and a top-quality fine gemstone look for less, many customers get attracted to lab-created stones for other reasons. Considering the environments, the lab-created stones do not tax natural sources the way the process for a natural gem does — no mines are dug, the labs use a fraction of the utilities and resources necessary for a mining operation and leave behind less pollutants. Lab-created stone jewelries are also great while traveling, when you want to leave your very expensive jewelry at home, or when you want to look like you have very expensive baubles — or both! Next to natural, nothing can compare to a fine lab-created stone.

When you buy a gift or treat yourself, always purchase a lab-created stone jewelry from a trusted jeweler, who discloses what your stone is and how to care for it. Just as there are several quality levels in natural gems, the same goes for the lab-created stones. Make sure that you understand what you’re getting for the money you’re spending, especially when paying a premium for a piece.

It’s worth exploring the possibilities to grow your jewelry wardrobe with classic styles and cutting-edge designs using stunning lab-created stones. Only you and your jeweler need to know!
