The main reason synthetic stones are popular is the cost. You get the ‘perfect’ gemstone for a fraction of the cost because it can be made a lot faster than its natural counterpart and without the large labour costs of mining.
On top of this jewellery in the 1920s was beginning to change, there was an emphasis on delicate, gemstone set, designs, aided by the introduction of platinum to the market, which was more hardwearing than traditional gold. It became fashionable for pieces to incorporate precision cut gemstones and diamonds; hand faceted to fit together perfectly like a jigsaw puzzle. However, gemstones were still relatively hard to come by and finding perfect colour matches for hundreds of melee stones proved challenging. Synthetic stones solved this problem as they offered an affordable way to guarantee colour matched gems and the public were sold on no one knowing the difference between the lab grown stone and the natural.
