Synthetic Options

Are synthetic sapphires the same as natural sapphires?

Brilliant Earth
offers sapphires
in a wide range of
colors, shapes, and
sizes.

Synthetic sapphires share the same chemical and optical properties as natural sapphires but originate in a laboratory. Synthetics are easily grown, but are also easily identified by growth markings and characteristically circular color zonings. Most lab-grown sapphires also have air bubble growth pockets not found in natural sapphires. The color of lab grown sapphires is a consistent shade of vivid medium blue that does not exhibit any modifying hues, like green or violet. They are a great alternative to natural sapphires and are available at lower prices. Brilliant Earth offers synthetic sapphires in a range of size and shapes. Please contact us for additional information.
