Pixel8:   If your looking for sterling silver, check out shantastic jewelry on Etsy

Also, moissaniteco is now carrying nice looking lab gems. http://www.moissaniteco.com/cultured_gemstones.html

Schubacs also sells lab created gemstones, their emeralds look amazing! http://youtu.be/2W-CadTQ850

Lord of gem rings on eBay and Etsy has some nice pieces,http://stores.ebay.ca/Lord-of-Gem-Rings/Emerald-/_i.html?_fsub=8924032&_sid=50922125&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322

Chris cz has some nice stones at lower price points, you could find a nice setting on ebay and have a lovely piece for not too much $.http://www.diamondcz.co.uk/gem.php5?level=3&expand=Round&first=Created@Emerald&second=Round

I have an emerald from him and it’s lovely, I would have preferred a more included stone, but it is very beautiful. 

Here is my ring

$1000 for the emerald is more than enough for a nice quality natural emerald. I have bought from Embassy Emeralds before, and they are really professional wtih outstanding emeralds. Check them out: http://www.embassyemeralds.com/index.php

Once you find your center stone, you could look on Etsy or other places for a setting, then have a ring made with the perfect stone and perfect setting. Pricescope has an active gemstone forum, although they don’t talk about lab created or synthetic stones. They do have good lists of stone and setting retailers though, and lots of other good resources.

Go all the way to the bottom of this thread, so you can see the most recent listings.

Good luck!

Pixel8:  I am buying on etsy and will get a lab sapphire because they are identical in every way to natural sapphires, except they were not mined from the earth.

Did you get a stone yet? I might consider this Moissannite Co if you had a good experience.

I’d go to pricescope.com and talk to the people in the colored stones forums. They helped me a TON in buying my sapphire ring. Without them I would have probably ended with a gemstone with a window (nooooooo) or way over paying. They love hunting down nice stones/rings.
