Alright, my darlings, gather 'round because I've got something that's bound to make your hearts flutter – feast your eyes on this pear-cut Ruby ring, a true stunner!

But before we get too carried away, let's have a little chat about lab-grown Rubies. This is the decade of lab-grown gemstones! If you’re in the market for a stunning Ruby, you might wonder if a lab-created Ruby is a good choice. However, lab-created Rubies offer many of the same benefits as natural Rubies – and in some cases, even more. Lab-created Rubies look identical to mined Rubies and are more affordable than their natural counterparts (because they don’t need to be mined – which can be quite costly).

Rubies have long been associated with passion, power, and love. In medieval times, many Rubies were not set in jewellery but were admired for their intoxicating shade. The stone was also said to cure madness and calm anger. Today, Rubies are still coveted for their beauty and luxury. Lab-created Rubies are virtually identical to natural Rubies in appearance. The only way to tell the difference is with a close inspection – even then, it can only be done by an expert. A lab-created Ruby is a man-made version of a natural stone. It is made from the same mineral – corundum – as are natural Rubies. Making a lab-created Ruby involves heating and cooling the corundum in a furnace until it forms crystals. A laboratory-developed Ruby has essentially the same chemical makeup as a natural Ruby; the distinction is that the lab-grown Ruby was produced in a laboratory under controlled conditions. As a result, lab-created Rubies are a popular choice for those who want the beauty of Ruby without the high price tag. While some might think that lab-grown Rubies are not “real” Rubies, they are, in fact, made up of the same chemical composition as natural Rubies, including a natural trace element called chromium. Lab-grown Rubies are unmined and have the same optics and physical form as natural Rubies. Though some jewellery enthusiasts may turn their noses up at the idea of lab-created Rubies, there are many benefits to opting for lab-made stones.

  • Lab-created Rubies tend to be more uniform in shape and size, which can be important for those seeking a specific look for their finished piece.
  • Lab-created Rubies are not mined, so they have a smaller carbon footprint than natural stones.
  • Last but not least, many people feel good about supporting the creation of lab-created stones, as it helps reduce the demand for natural gems, which can often be sourced from countries with questionable labour practices.
  • Lab-created Rubies tend to be more affordable than their natural counterparts.

Conflict-free, eco-friendly bling is a win-win! Poor working conditions and corrupt governments are removed from the picture. The disruption and damage caused by mining are eliminated.

Now, about that split shank design? It's sleek, it's chic, and it frames the stone just right. Talk about attention to detail!

Let's get into the nitty-gritty – these beauties are made to order and shipped from the USA, so patience is key. Brace yourselves for a 6-8 week wait, though between you and me, I've never been left twiddling my thumbs for more than a fortnight – so far!

And hey, if you've got your eye on this gem but your wallet needs a breather, no worries – layaway payments are on the table. Just drop me a message, and we'll figure out a plan. Oh, and when it's time to pay up, PayPal's our trusty sidekick here.

While lapidaries usually facet high-quality Ruby for jewellery, they also use great quantities of low-quality Ruby rough to make beads, carvings, and other ornamental objects. Rubies are the birthstone for all you July babies out there! Plus, they're the stars of the show for two major marriage milestones, the 15th and 40th anniversaries. So, if you're looking for that perfect gift to celebrate your love, consider a Ruby. It's like wearing your heart on your sleeve, or in this case, on your finger! 💖💍

Got questions? Don't be shy – shoot me a message, and I'll get back to you in a flash. Happy shopping, my lovelies! ✨
