Our Premium lab created Sapphires are grown using the Czochralski Pulled method. While one of the slowest growing methods at 2mm/hour, it creates beautiful, evenly saturated rough! This means that no matter what cut you choose it will always be the same expected color with little to no variation. Our blue lab created Sapphires come in three rich saturations: Arctic Blue is the lightest, Periwinkle is medium, and our Royal Blue is the richest.
Stag & Finch sapphires have the same optical properties, hardness, and chemical makeup as their mined counterpart. We’ve put a lot of time and effort specifically into optimizing our cutting designs to showcase Sapphire’s brilliance for every custom-cut offered!
Lab Sapphire is offered by many shops both on and offline and is not represented honestly by everyone. Sapphire is less often mislabeled than some other lab created materials such as Alexandrite, but it is not too uncommon. These misidentified alternatives could include lab-created spinel which is a different gemstone variety, Cubic Zirconia, at times even glass, among others.
