I''m wondering what you girls out there think as far as lab created gemstones go? I''m not talking cubic zirconias instead of diamonds, but are lab created sapphires, for instance, as satisfying a gift as natural sapphires? That is my girlfriend''s favorite stone, and I don''t know whether lab created stones are a way of saying "I''m too cheap to get the good stuff" or if they are sufficiently high enough in quality and character to be an impressive gift. Thanks for any and all opinions.
