    Hello! I'm posting for the first time. I've found and bought some beautiful moissanites by reading here and now I want to try colored gemstones.

    My budget right now only allows for lab grown gems and I'd like to know where to look for those. I'm located in Finland so import charges and taxes are expensive. That's why I'm mainly looking at ebay stores located in Asia (they seem to be okay with marking down values and offer cheap shipping). Do you have any good suggestions? Places that don't sell cz as gems? Maybe even nicely cut?

    Are lab grown gems as well cut as natural ones?

    I have bought sapphires from diamondcz (Chris) located in the UK and have liked those.

    Did I post in the wrong place or is the question not appropriate for this forum? :(

    Thank you for your reply :) A lot of lovely gems haven't been restocked there, but I guess I can wait a bit.

    Do you think I will be sent cubic zirconia if I try to buy from e.g. Thailand?

    Joseph Schubach Jewelers sells Pure Grown lab grown diamonds, if that helps. They are not CZ, but actual lab grown diamonds.
