Back in the day, due to their uniformity of color and flawless clarity, synthetic sapphires were considered a modern improvement over their natural counterparts, their differences discernible only with a microscope. synthetic colored gemstones were widely used in the 1950s and 1960s but their introduction into jewellery was earlier. The first lab-grown sapphires were commercially produced in the 1890s, and were considered a novelty though much of the early 20th century. They were very frequently used in fine jewellery, without the stigma that a synthetic stone might have today.
