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.
For a piece to complement crimson tones, try these Emerald Stud Earrings 2 ctw in 9ct Rose Gold. A subtle addition, these beautifully cut gemstones will catch the eye, whilst the soft pink of their rose gold settings will seamlessly match red.
Whilst emerald and crimson make an exceptional combination, when paired with neutral tones, the hues of emerald become the main event. For a statement piece, we recommend our Pear Cut Emerald Pendant Necklace 3 ct in 9ct Gold. Crafted from solid gold and set with four delicate prongs, this gemstone will elevate any work outfit or dinner look. One of our most popular designs, the pear cut is designed to let colours glow.
For a piece that evokes classic Hollywood glamour, we recommend our Emerald Auroral Ring 4.5 ct in 9ct White Gold. With this ring, the extraordinary clarity of the octagon cut emerald is clear to see. A true showstopper, get lost in the endless hues of this lab grown creation.
