What's the difference between lab-grown and natural rubies? If you've chosen to buy a ruby, you've made an exquisite choice.


Rubies are among the most sought-after and valuable gemstones, with prices to match. The striking bright red of ruby jewelry is sure to be admired and adds a special touch to your collection.

Natural rubies are generally more expensive than lab-grown ones. The key differences involve their formation process, appearance, and price. While natural rubies form over time from minerals in the Earth's crust, making them rare, lab-grown rubies are created in controlled environments with similar chemical compositions to natural rubies, offering a more affordable and nearly flawless alternative.

Distinguishing between them can be challenging without specialized knowledge, but lab-grown rubies tend to be more perfect in appearance. Regardless of your choice, both types of rubies make stunning additions to jewelry collections.
