My girlfriend loves the idea of an emerald engagement ring. We know that emeralds are usually too soft and brittle for engagement rings. As a possible solution, we've considered getting a lab grown emerald from Chatham. Chatham lab-grown emeralds have a lifetime warranty against a "chip or break under ordinary circumstances." I was wondering if anyone can attest to how nice Chatham emeralds look in person, and how they stand up over time.
