Introducing Lab Grown Emerald and Alexandrite

Choosing Lab Grown Emerald and Alexandrite

With stunning high clarity and remarkable colourful hues, lab grown emerald and alexandrite jewellery make perfect gifts for those who want to add colour to their collection. Alongside their wondrous hues, emerald and alexandrite are both birthstones, for May and June respectively. Ideal for gifting, for tips on how to style lab grown emerald and alexandrite jewellery, read below.

Why Lab Grown?

Lab grown emerald and alexandrite are just two examples of the growing demand for lab grown gemstone jewellery. In recent years, lab grown gemstone and diamond jewellery have become increasingly popular. Created from the same minerals as those found in nature, gemstones that are lab grown are chemically, physically and optically identical.

High clarity emerald and alexandrite are very rare to find in nature. This means that they are regularly valued in the thousands, if not the tens of thousands! At the same time, the environmental impact of mining natural emerald and alexandrite is considerably greater than the processes behind their man-made equivalents. Higher in clarity, more affordable and with a reduced environmental cost – with lab grown gemstones, style and sustainability are one and the same.

How to Style Lab Grown Emerald Jewellery

The green hues of emerald are truly eye-catching. So, to make the most of these bright shades, we recommend pairing emerald with crimson tones. Opposites on the colour wheel, the green tones of emerald will beautifully complement red clothing, or ruby jewellery. With earrings, pendants and rings available, whatever your style, emerald will elevate your outfit.
