Hi! Since the folks at pricescope are SO helpful, and there is actually a colored stone forum, I thought maybe someone could help me!

My birthday is in May, so emeralds are my birthstone. I really want to own an emerald cut emerald. I honestly don't care if it is natural or lab created (unless I should for some reason!), but I want to make sure I don't pay a "natural emerald" price for a lab-created stone. Does anyone know of a reputable site that will sell me what I am paying for?

For instance, is Chatham a good place for synthetic stones? I would love a stone (not setting though) that looks like this: http://www.chatham.com/Gallery4.php?productCode=CR6646W&catId=7&catCode=EM

Also, is there a reason why lab-created emeralds should be avoided?

Thank you!!!!

We're not really supposed to discuss the purchasing of lab created stones.

Joshua Griswold of Serenity Diamonds is an emerald expert and very reputable.
