Lab-Grown Stones vs Natural Stones: Why We Only Offer Lab-Grown Stones at 2C Gold

When it comes to choosing a stone for a piece of jewellery, customers are often faced with a decision between natural and lab grown stones. While natural stones have been the traditional choice for many years, lab grown stones have become increasingly popular in recent times. At 2C Gold, we have made the decision to exclusively offer lab grown stones. Here are some of the reasons why:

Ethical and Environmental Concerns

One of the main reasons we choose lab grown stones at 2C Gold is due to ethical and environmental concerns. Natural stones are often mined in countries with poor labour conditions and minimal environmental regulations. Additionally, mining can result in land degradation and water pollution. Lab grown stones, on the other hand, are produced in a controlled environment without any negative impact on the environment or workers.

Consistency in Quality and Availability

Another advantage of lab grown stones is that they offer consistency in quality and availability. Natural stones can vary significantly in terms of colour, clarity, and size. This can make it difficult to source stones that are a good match for a particular piece of jewellery. With lab grown stones, we can produce stones that are identical in terms of colour, clarity, and size, which allows us to create pieces with a high level of precision and consistency.

Cost-Effective Option

Lab grown stones are also a cost-effective option. While the initial investment in lab equipment is significant, the cost per stone is much lower than natural stones. This means that we can offer high-quality pieces of jewellery at a more affordable price than would be possible with natural stones.


At 2C Gold, we believe that lab grown stones offer a number of advantages over natural stones. From ethical and environmental concerns to consistency in quality and cost-effectiveness, we believe that lab grown stones are the way forward for the jewellery industry.
