A New Choice in Diamonds
What is a Lab Grown Diamond?
They are diamonds! Lab Grown Diamonds have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as Earth mined diamonds. The same skilled cutters that facet Earth mined stones also cut Lab Grown Diamonds. The only difference is where they come from. And because they weren’t mined from Earth, not only are they good for the Earth, they are good for your wallet! The difference in cost between an Earth mined diamond and a lab grown diamond can you save you 30–40%!
"Mined Diamonds Represent More Than 7 Times the Level of Impact as Compared to Grown Diamonds."
—Environmental Impact Assessment, Frost & Sullivan Report (Nov. 2014)
Lab Grown Diamonds can get you a bigger diamond, for the same amount of money.

How are they made?
Production uses a process called Chemical Vapor Desposition to grow the diamond crystals. In recent years, advances in this technology have producedbetter and larger stones.
What you need to know?
How are Lab Grown Diamonds made?
Lab grown diamonds are created by using two gem-quality diamond creation processes: High Pressure-High Temperature and Chemical Vapor Desposition. During the processes, a small diamond seed is placed in a controlled enviroment containg carbon. The diamond grows, atom by atom and layer by layer, recreating nature's process in a lab.
Are your diamonds graded?
Yes, all of our lab grown diamonds are graded to the exact same standards, sometimes even stricter, as earth-mined diamonds and they come with certification by independent gemologists. These certifications are the same ones Earth mined diamonds use and have detailed description of grading results of the 4 C's, as well as full disclosure of the grown diamond's origin.
What quality are the diamonds you offer?
We carry a variety of color and clarity grades, just like our Earth-mined diamond options! Just like no one knows what the grade of diamond is when it is mined, no one knows what a lab grown diamond will be graded as until it's completely grown in a lab. Earth-mined diamonds can come with all sorts of color tints due to the other minerals found in nature. The most common tint is yellow, which is caused by the traces of nitrogen when the diamond is formed. In lab grown diamonds, these elements are removed, so they can appear much whiter than their Earth-mined counterparts in the same color grade.
