    I have a lab emerald engagement ring, partially as it ensures a stronger stone due to fewer inclusions, partially cause emerald in our budget were either cloudy or not saturated and partially cause I think the process to make them is awesome. The stone isnt glass-like at all, it’s way too sparkly for that and it does have a slight feather in the bottom. It is a chatham though so a high quality lab grown stone.

    This was my engagement ring for many years. It was purchased in 2000 as the style is a bit dated, but I wore it daily for many, many years. The emeralds are lab and we went that route so that it would be stronger. I also really love the color.

    @ shinypebble   wow, your ring is incredibly gorgeous!  All the rings are pretty in the thread are pretty, but your natural emerald definitely stands out as the most beautiful to me.

    For my emerald engagement ring we chose a lab created stone.
    This was ultimately for 2 reasons:

    1. It was wayyyyy cheaper. For a natural emerald of the same size and similar colour we were looking at 20x the price – which was insane!

    2. The lack of inclusions and internal fissures (which are common in natural emeralds) means a lab stone is far less likely to fracture, chip or crack.

    A few bees mention that natural stones are ‘prettier’ and lab stones look like glass. This is something we were a bit worried about. We ended up choosing quite a deep cushion cut stone and I feel like the depth of the cut helps to avoid that ‘glass’ appearance.

    I love my lab emerald and I wouldn’t change the stone we have.
