LET’S DEBUNK THE MYTHS
Lab-grown gemstones are fake
Lab-grown gemstones are chemically and physically identical to their natural counterparts, just created in a controlled environment.
Natural gemstones are always more valuable
While natural gemstones often hold more value, lab-grown stones can also be valuable due to their quality and ethical sourcing.
Lab-grown gemstones lack uniqueness
Though created in a controlled setting, lab-grown stones can possess unique characteristics and inclusions similar to natural stones.
Natural gemstones are always ethically sourced
The mining of natural gemstones can sometimes involve unethical practices, whereas lab-grown stones often have a traceable and ethical production process.
Lab-grown gemstones are easily distinguishable from natural ones
With advancements in technology, it's become increasingly difficult to distinguish between natural and lab-grown gemstones without professional testing.
Natural gemstones are always better quality
The quality of a gemstone, whether natural or lab-grown, depends on various factors including cut, color, and clarity, not merely its origin.
Lab-grown gemstones are not durable
Lab-grown gemstones share the same levels of hardness and durability as their natural counterparts.
Natural gemstones have a richer history or story
While natural gemstones often have a historical allure, lab-grown gemstones have their own narrative of technological innovation and ethical sourcing.
Lab-grown gemstones are less environmentally friendly
Producing lab-grown gemstones typically has a lower environmental impact compared to mining natural gemstones.
Natural gemstones have better resale value
Resale value can depend on many factors including brand, quality, and demand, not just whether a gemstone is natural or lab-grown.
