Lab Created Gemstones Are More Eco Than Mined Gemstones

synthetic ruby earrings from Diamond Nexus LabsAre you looking for some beautiful bling but can’t stand the guilt of buying newly mined gemstones?

Consider lab created gemstones. Synthetic diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires are nearly identical to the real thing. In fact these sparkling beauties are physically, optically and chemically identical to the real thing. Minus the awful amount of mining waste, pollution, and environmental destruction that mining often creates plus the ethical problems associated with mining in third world countries.

Diamond Nexus Labsis just one company that offers beautiful jewelry made with lab created gemstones. Not only are the gemstones eco-friendly but they are also very affordable.

And they offer bridal jewelry. Diamonds, diamonds and more diamonds. “Diamond Nexus’ diamond simulants match the physical and optical properties of flawless, grade D mined diamonds to near perfection, differing only in their elemental composition. Like mined diamonds, the lab-created stones cut glass and retain their breathtaking sparkle forever. Unlike mined diamonds, there is no human suffering or environmental damage associated with their production.”

Diamond Nexus Labs has a wide variety to choose from in addition to custom creations that can be made just for you.

No one ever has to know your jewelry wasn’t mined from the earth you can walk around sparkling with a clear conscience.
