Tibbs:  Thanks for the tip about Vivic gems, I just ordered some! I’ve been after a decent lab-created emerald for a RHR and I found the perfect one on their site.  I can’t wait for delivery 🙂

pmaliz:  I bought my stone from Larry Woods. Know that the sapphires from tanzania can have earthy tones and unusual color changes. Mine acts much like an alexandrite. You can also try Jeff White he does some amazing cutting. You may need to contact him to get a stone though since he doesn’t keep a good inventory online.

Geolite.com is great – I got a gorgeous lab alexandrite there w/ perfect clarity and cut.  They have sapphires in all shades, shapes, and sizes.

I don’t know about sapphires but my ring is a lab-created diamond from Brilliant Earth. Fiance got it because he knows my ethical issues with mining, but he didn’t realise that the side stones were natural diamonds. I truly adore my ring and could never exchange it, but I just wanted to warn you that even rings with lab-made center stones might have diamond side stones.

I have a lab alexandrite from geolite.com and love it.  They have many lab sapphires at fantastic prices – good customer service, too.
