About Chatham brand gemstones:

"In the 1920s, a boy with a dream to grow diamonds began the historic experiments that would launch the world’s leading lab-grown gemstone company.

Carroll Chatham built his first gem laboratory in his family’s San Francisco garage when he was only 12.He began by trying to recreate the failed diamond-growing experiments of French chemist Henri Moissan in the 1890s.

One fateful attempt resulted in an explosion that rattled his San Francisco neighborhood, as well as the local police. To reassure his parents that the experiments were safe, he shifted his gem-growing focus from diamonds to emeralds, which require lower pressures. Many years passed with nothing to show for his attempts to duplicate the gem-growing environment in the earth’s crust millions of years ago.

In 1931, Chatham entered college at the California Institute of Technology, leaving his latest experiment still running in his family’s garage. As fate would have it, his father turned off the power supply to his project. This simple act caused emerald crystals to grow in the crucible: the first emeralds ever grown in the laboratory! It took Carroll three years to understand why the emeralds formed. When he did, he founded the company that bears his name.

After perfecting the process to grow emeralds in 1938, laboratory-grown rubies, alexandrites, blue sapphires, and orange sapphires (Padparadschas) followed in the following decades. A few years after Carroll’s passing in 1983, his son, Tom Chatham, finally achieved his father’s lifelong dream of growing diamonds in the laboratory.

Tom’s continued fascination with gemstones and crystal formation resulted in the introduction of several other lab-grown stones: opal, morganite, and aqua blue spinel.

Today, Chatham is still recognized as the leader of laboratory-grown gemstones. The company’s Lifetime Warranty and Certificate of Authenticity assure that Chatham-created gems will continue Carroll’s legacy for generations to come."

Shipping policies

We ship most orders within 1-3 business days unless your purchase is a special order item, which would be clearly indicated in our listing description.

Additional policies

We offer custom ring sizing on some of our rings, not all. However, we always try to state whether the ring is capable of being sized up or down in the description section of the individual listing. For the most part we encourage you to have your local bench jeweler size your ring because that way you get to receive the ring and see it first-hand, up close and personal. This is the most thoughtful approach because I cannot accept returns on customized items. (It is very hard to re-sell non-standard size rings)
