Lab-Grown Diamonds. Artisanal Diamonds. Whatever you refer to them as, they are not synthetic stones or a diamond alternative like moissanite or cubic zirconia. They are the real deal. Using a synthesized process of either HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) or CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) - or both, they begin as rough crystals with the end product finished, graded and cut the same way as traditional diamonds. Under a microscope, their chemical composition isn't just similar, it is the the same as Type 2 diamonds.
Why choose a lab-grown diamond:
+ Lab-Grown Diamonds can cost significantly less than their natural diamond counterparts, coming in at 30-50% less than earth-mined diamonds. This means you can check off boxes like high quality colour and bigger carat weights for a reasonable difference.
+ A smaller carbon footprint than traditional earth mined diamonds
+ All our lab grown diamonds come with a serialized IGI report so you can feel confident in your purchase
