Why Lab-Grown

Demand for lab-grown diamonds and gemstones is only increasing. Partner with Chatham and expand your market and consumer base offering the finest lab-grown products available.

As Below So Above

Growth is fragile both underground and in a laboratory. Outside barometric pressure effects growth inside a chamber and computer systems have to adjust accordingly. Any slight variance can disrupt the growth process. With regard to mined gems it truly is rare to mine clean gemstones out of the Earth because the planet does not remain stable for very long.

Only More Perfected

Color and clarity are typically superior in lab grown gemstones. Especially using methods that duplicate the conditions deep within the Earth. Consistency in color is another great benefit since the conditions in a laboratory are far more stable than in the Earth. This allows for less fracturing and impurities during the growth process.

Value To Your Customer

The real value in lab grown gemstones is that they can be produced in the rare qualities found in earth mined stones that command astronomical prices at auction without giving up anything in return. The advantage to the consumer is being able to buy the quality and beauty that made that mined gemstone so sought after in the first place.

Value To You

Understand that the lab grown category is not a substitute, it is an addition. As a jeweler, you are there to inform and create the options that best suit the customers criteria. Lab grown gemstones expand your market and consumer base. Don’t be afraid of offering a lower price option to meet the needs of a larger audience. Also let’s not assume that with a lower price, comes lower value and quality. In 80 years, Chatham lab-grown gemstones have never depreciated. On the contrary, the value has only gone up!

The Luxury Lab-Grown Brand

The most trusted name in lab grown, shaped by some of the most skilled cutters in the world.

A Cut Above The Rest

Chatham is known for our rich color and high clarity, but its our cutting quality that far surpasses that of any other lab grown product in the market. No matter which shape we cut, we have strict standards for proportions, faceting and polish that ensure that all our gemstones have maximum brilliance, high clarity, and vivid color. To meet these standards, about 80% of the rough crystal is lost. Saving extra weight is never a consideration.

Exclusive Chatham Cuts

After careful inspection of each crystal’s shape and depth of color, we decide which shape to cut. We cut traditional shapes and some innovative new ones like the onion cut and the flame cut that we’ve designed exclusively for our fine jewelry collection. These unusual shapes cannot be duplicated using mined gemstones as they do not have the high clarity Chatham offers.

Noteworthy Lab-Grown Projects

For precision cutting and crafting excellence in lab grown, the choice is Chatham. We stand for quality, reliability, and dependability in the jewelry industry. Chatham’s promise is simple, we bring you fine lab grown gemstone and jewelry at an exceptional value. Our designs are deliberate and distinctive, maximizing color, brilliance and beauty. Chatham is modern luxury.
