Hi!

What do you all think of Chatham’s gems? Particularly their quality, internal characteristics and colour?

TIA

Mandira

Chatham is a very well respected brand in lab grown gemstones. Like anything else, there is a broad range of qualities in Chathams gem offerings.

Broad range of qualities? As in colour, or cut? Or do they sell collector’s specimens too?

Synthetics are grades on the same quality attributes as natural stones to a point.

In some species of synthetics flawless stones are worth less than stones with natural appearing inclusions. This is because they are closer in appearance tho their natural counterparts. I think Ruby is the primary example of this.
