What are lab-grown stones?
Lab-grown stones, also known as synthetic or cultured stones, are stones that are created in a laboratory using advanced technology. These stones have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as natural stones, but are produced without the environmental and social impacts associated with traditional mining practices.Lab-grown stones can be created in a range of sizes, shapes, and colors, making them a versatile alternative to natural stones. Lab-grown stones offer a more sustainable and ethical alternative to natural stones, while still providing the same quality and beauty. They are also more affordable than natural stones, making them accessible to a wider range of customers.
Our Lab-grown Stones
Jeulia® Lab-grown Cubic Zirconia
Unlike natural gemstones that are mined from the earth, our lab-grown cubic zirconia was developed to be more durable with better optical characteristics than of a diamond while maintaining an ethical standard to protect our environment.
Jeulia® Lab-grown Moissanite
Moissanite are lab-grown with minimal environmental impact. Composed of carbon and silicon, the moissanite crystal is extremely resistant to scratching, chipping and breaking. Moissanite twinkles and sparkles unlike any gemstone on earth.

How are lab-grown stones made?
Lab-grown stones are made by replicating the natural process of stone formation in a controlled environment. This involves using advanced technology and specialized equipment to create the conditions necessary for the crystal to grow. A seed crystal is placed in a growth chamber containing a solution of chemicals and minerals. Over time, the crystal gradually grows as more material is added to it from the solution. The crystal is then cut and polished to the desired shape, and undergoes quality control to ensure that it meets the desired specifications for size, color, and clarity. The resulting laboratory-grown stone is chemically, physically, and optically identical to natural stones, but is produced at a lower cost and with a smaller environmental impact.
What are the benefits of lab-grown stones?
Affordability: Unlike natural stones, the manufacturing process of lab-grown stones does not take several years, which is why they are much less expensive. They typically retail for 30 to 40% less than mined or natural stones, and given the quality of the stones, they make a great bargain.
Ethical production: Because they are created in a controlled environment, there is no risk of human rights abuses or environmental degradation associated with mining. Additionally, many lab-grown stone producers use sustainable and eco-friendly production methods, which can further minimize their environmental impact.
Lab-grown stones offer a more sustainable alternative to natural stones, which can have a significant environmental impact. Mining can cause deforestation, soil erosion, water pollution, and habitat destruction, among other issues. By using lab-grown stones, consumers can reduce their environmental impact and support more sustainable practices in the jewelry industry.
Availability: Because lab-grown stones are produced in a controlled environment, they are available in a wider range of sizes, shapes, and colors than natural stones. No matter what look you want to achieve, lab-grown stone jewelry goes with everything. Lab-grown stones are perfect for everyday use; they reflect your individuality and allow you to express yourself, regardless of what you do.
