Real vs Lab Created Gemstones
What is the difference between Real, Lab Created, Russian Formula Cubic Zirconia and Simulated Gemstones?
Real or Natural Gemstones: Real gemstones are just that, real and natural, as they were created in nature. Natural gemstones may be treated by various methods to make the color appear as we would expect them to look. Some treatments are permanent and some are not. For an example of gemstone treatment, Tanzanite in its natural state is a brownish color, but when heat treated, Tanzanite becomes the beautiful blue-purple gemstone that we admire. Due to the rarity of Tanzanite, all offerings of this gemstone whether in sterling silver rings, lockets, sterling silver bracelets, or earrings by Glittering Treasures are Russian formula cubic zirconia. These are the finest man made gemstones of this type available on the market today.
