Wallis Simpson didn't invent the royal scandal, she just perfected it. After winning the heart of the Prince of Wales, the American socialite stirred up so much controversy that the prince was forced to surrender the throne. The couple became the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and spent decades living a life of leisure.
The Duchess (referred to as "Her Grace") went on to amass a collection of precious gems that has yet to be matched. Though we were inspired by her royal appetite for rare gemstones, we know that most people don't have the luxury of a Duchess budget. That's why we turned to science for a brilliant blue solution and created the Grace Lab-Sapphire Ring.
Our Scienza® lab-created sapphires are scientifically-grown, crafted in laboratories with precise equipment that recreates the high pressure and heat that nature uses to produce gemstones far beneath the surface of the earth. Scienza are chemically identical to the natural gemstone and display a better color and sparkle than most mined sapphire. While mined sapphires can cost up to $5,000 per carat a stone of this level of color and clarity, you can experience this royal blue for this exclusive Stauer price! Scandalous!
