A real twig was cast in solid recycled gold to create the unique ring shank. Set upon the branch is a vibrant Padparadscha sapphire, cultured to perfection. Sapphire is a durable and sparkling gemstone, making it a great alternative to a traditional diamond engagement ring.

About Cultured Sapphires:
Cultured gemstones (also referred to as "lab-grown" or "lab-created") are crystals which are grown in a lab, rather than mined from nature. They have the same optical, gemological, physical, and chemical properties as a their naturally occurring counterpart. Since they are grown in a controlled environment, they'll have fewer flaws and amazing clarity and color!
Cultured stones are real gemstones, with all the same gemological properties found in nature. They are not the same as "simulant" or "imitation" gems, which are defined as man-made products which simulate the appearance of, but do not duplicate the properties of the natural gemstone they imitate.
Your cultured Padparadscha sapphire will be equally (if not more) durable, sparkling, and vibrant than a Padparadscha sapphire found in nature. Since it is a true sapphire gemstone, it is very valuable -- even more valuable than many naturally occurring sapphires. In addition to being of great value and quality, lab-grown gemstones avoid all environmentally harmful mining.
