I am always on the lookout for new RHRs and recently I have been lusting after the Stag and Finch lab created gems, specifically their Alexandrite. However it is too far out of my price range to even consider at the moment so I began looking elsewhere for lab created gems. I found some lovely looking rings on Etsy which, although are not as beautiful as the Stag and Finch gems, are tempting none the less.
These rings are a fraction of the cost of a Stag and Finch ring, even if you pick gold over the default silver. Most of the sellers appear to be from China. I am wondering if these are similar to the chinese moissanite? Where they are manufacturing the same gem as the big brands but without the brand name? Or am I hoping against hope and they are actually just cheap knockoffs? Has anyone had experience? These are the ones I have come across:
Thanks In Advance
