First discovered in 1893 by a French scientist, Henri Moissan in Arizona, Moissanite is a near-colorless gemstone that's composed of silicon carbide. Moissanite is extremely rare to find in nature, therefore the Moissanite we know today is lab-created. Compared to mined diamonds, lab-created Moissanite gemstones have a different chemical makeup & have a smaller carbon footprint, resulting in less negative environmental impact. They are a popular diamond alternative stone because of their impeccable resemblance and durability for everyday wear. Not only do they look just like real diamonds, but they're also extremely affordable, allowing you to get the engagement ring and carat size of your dreams.
Slate & Tell's brilliant Cubic Zirconia gemstones are a stunning diamond simulant. Most of our jewelry styles are available with this affordable and ethical choice to enhance our mining-free options.

With vibrant colors from light pink to peachy-blush tones, you can romanticize your love with Slate & Tell's affordable Morganite Engagement Ring Collection.
Turquoise Our Lab Created Turquoise is a synthetic version of the natural mineral turquoise, which is known for its captivating sea-green color and patterning and offers several benefits over its natural counterpart. One major benefit is that it's more affordable than natural turquoise, making it accessible to a wider range of gemstone lovers.
Lab-created turquoise is also more consistent in color and patterning than natural turquoise, which often varies widely in its appearance. This allows for more precise and consistent results in jewelry-making and other crafts.
Another benefit of lab-created turquoise is that it is more sustainable than natural turquoise. It does not require mining, which can cause damage to the environment and disrupt local ecosystems. It also does not contribute to the depletion of natural turquoise resources. Lastly, Lab-created turquoise is also more durable than natural turquoise which is often treated with various chemical treatments to improve its color, durability, and stability.
