Eco-Friendly Diamonds & Gemstones
Chatham-created gemstones are real. Chatham doesn't make gemstones, it creates the environment in which gems can grow naturally. Chatham gemstones and diamonds are cultured just as many pearls; natural components are placed in an environment created to duplicate nature. Once the required combination of chemical and environmental factors is created, the crystals grow over time, the exact length of time depends on the gemstone. As a result, quality diamonds and gemstones are developed with identical physical, chemical, and optical properties to those found in nature. The good news is, they weren't dug out of the ground.
Unless you're a professionally trained gemologist with a powerful microscope, you won't be able to tell the difference between created and mined gemstones. Every gemological laboratory in the world has reference samples of Chatham gemstones to aid in the separation. Chatham is at the forefront of full disclosure, contributing samples and updates whenever something new is released. Diminish your carbon footprint by featuring a Chatham-created center stone in your custom ring.
