Simulated (sometimes called synthetic) gemstones are created in laboratories and emulate the characteristics and look of genuine gemstones. Simulated stones tend to have a more vivid colour to them, as impurities are not present in a lab and do not modify the clarity or colour of the stone. All of Jewlr's simulated stones are sourced directly from SWAROVSKI, providing us with the highest quality simulated stones in the marketplace.
Genuine gemstones are rarer and much more valuable than simulated gemstones and this value stays with the jewellery item forever. There are numerous benefits of including genuine stones to any jewellery item. Genuine stones add an exceptional intrinsic worth and natural beauty to all jewellery. No two genuine gemstones are identical and all have a unique story to them. The true beauty of gemstones can be fully enjoyed in their natural and genuine form. Any gift recipient would love to know that their personalised item contains genuine stones, making it both personalised and truly one-of-a-kind.
We are not able to offer birthstones in all stone shapes and size. If you do not see your birthstone as an option, then unfortunately we do not offer it in that shape and size required for that particular item.
