Chatham Lab-Grown Yellow Sapphires
Chatham makes the beauty of yellow sapphire much more available with lab-grown yellow sapphires that has the sought-after color of the very best of mined gems. Growing yellow sapphire crystals takes about six months. We start with a seed of fine Sri Lankan yellow sapphire. We create the perfect environment so the yellow crystals grow large and clean. When we cut the crystals, we cut away about 80% of the rough to give you faceted yellow sapphires with a bright yellow color, exceptional clarity, and sparkling brilliance.
We cut our yellow sapphires in a wide variety of shapes that are almost impossible to find in mined sapphires. And because they are created in our labs, they have less of an impact on the environment than gems that are mined. We think the exceptional quality and beauty of our lab-grown yellow sapphires make them a better choice than mined sapphires. But visit a Chatham retailer and compare the two side-by-side and decide for yourself.
