Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds are becoming a favourite for many of our clients, and it's easy to see why. First, they're "real" diamonds. They have the same look, feel, and strength just like natural mined diamonds. Even under a microscope, there's nothing to tell them apart. They look the same, sparkle just as much, and are just as tough (they score a perfect 10 on the Mohs scale). Plus, they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and grades, just like mined diamonds.

The bonus? They offer more value for money, allowing clients to either opt for a larger stone or one of better quality within the same budget. On top of that, being produced in labs, they steer clear of the environmental concerns that sometimes surround the diamond industry. That said, if you do choose natural diamonds from us, you can be confident that they are ethically sourced and traceable back to responsible mines that prioritise the environment and ethical practices.

Lab-grown diamonds are physically and chemically identical to mined diamonds. They shine just as brilliantly but come at a more approachable price thanks to efficient production.

Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds?

Absolutely! Lab grown diamonds are indeed real diamonds. They possess the same physical, chemical and optical properties as mined diamonds because they share the same atomic structure. In fact, even expert gemologists cannot distinguish between lab grown and mined diamonds without specialised equipment. When it comes to brilliance, hardness, and durability, lab grown diamonds shine just as brilliantly as their mined counterparts.

How are Lab Grown Diamonds Graded and Certified?

Lab grown diamonds undergo the same rigorous grading standards as mined diamonds. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and International Gemological Institute (IGI) are the most reputable gem grading organisations globally, issue certificates for both mined and lab grown diamonds. These certificates provide detailed information about the diamond's quality characteristics such as cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight. The certification ensures transparency and helps customers make informed choices when selecting their dream engagement ring.

Why choose lab grown diamonds?

Firstly, they offer more value for your money. Carat for carat, lab-grown diamonds come at a more affordable price than mined diamonds. This cost efficiency can allow you to opt for a larger diamond within the same budget, potentially upgrading from a 0.5-carat to a 1-carat ring.

Secondly, lab-grown diamonds are identical to mined ones, both scientifically and visually. You get the same brilliance, sparkle, and longevity, and rest assured, even expert gemologists cannot distinguish between lab grown and mined diamonds without specialised equipment.

And when it comes to design? Lab-grown diamonds are versatile. Whether you're drawn to solitaire settings, halo designs, or various cuts like round or pear, lab-grown diamonds fit seamlessly into any style, ensuring you don't compromise on aesthetics while making staying within budget.
