What is Simulated Sapphire
A simulated sapphire stone is made in a lab using materials and chemicals to create the stone that has the same appearance as naturally created sapphire. A simulated sapphire stone has a different chemical make up than a natural sapphire, but it contains all the beauty of a sapphire gemstone in color and appearance at a fraction of the cost. Naturally occurring sapphires must be mined causing real damage to the environment and miners doing the back-breaking work for little pay. Most of the sapphires in the world today are being mined in Sri Lanka on sites with extraordinarily little worker protections and care for the damage being done to the environment to extract the gems from the ground. However, a simulated sapphire stone with a sterling silver ring allows you to avoid being a willing participant in those bad practices.
