It do shares all chemical, optical and physical characteristics of its natural mineral counterpart. Synthetic corundum, which includes sapphire, can be made by several processes. Because of this, synthetic corundum is available at many price levels. From very affordable to very expensive. Although this ring is from the 1970s, synthetic sapphires have been popular since the early 1900s. You can find some of the earliest examples of synthetic sapphires in art nouveau and art deco jewellery.
