In a related survey conducted last year – The Knot 2021 Jewelry & Engagement Study it was found that 34% of respondents found it “increasingly less important that the ring/stone be a natural stone (-8% since 2019), with Gen Z (28%) finding it less important than Millennials (35%) and Gen X (41%).” Nearly one in four engagement rings in 2021 featured a center stone that was lab-grown – up 11% in the past two years, “demonstrating dedication to sustainability.”
