Anyone ever buy JTV "fabulite"?

I saw them selling a lab grown gemstone called strontium titanate marketed as "fabulite".  It was very diamond-like and looked very sparkly but quite frankly didn't see any advantage over diamonique.

I have a clear strontium titanate pendant that I purchased with the idea that it would be part of my travel jewlery collection. It's absolutely beautiful! I wear it almost daily, mixed with Moissanite earrings and diamonds in a bracelet and on a watch. It all goes wonderfully together.

@FrostyBabe1  That's good to know!  Thank you for your reply.  They were showing a couple of pieces mixed with pink gemstones and they were beautiful.

I have a ring with a good size London blue topaz center stone and on either side are 2 lab created strontium titanate stones. The ring is a knock out. I purchased ring from JTV. You will not be unhappy with these stones

I own their 7cttw (8mm round) studs. They are stunning! They out sparkle my Moissanite studs. Love both!

 

The sparkle is very different from DMQ. Strontium titanate has more sparkle than diamond or a CZ, but close to Moissanite. In my jewelry box I have all four kinds... DMQ cz, Moissanite, ST and genuine diamond. When I look at them side by side, there is no mistaking which one is ST because their sparkle is like sparks of rainbow colored lights. Beautiful!

Researched the difference between lab & synthetic. Both are different from say, Diamoniqiue colored stones. @nova checking out JTV fabulite. Thank you.
