Lab-Grown Diamonds 

A laboratory environment that mimics the natural process of a diamond's growth is used to produce a lab-grown diamond.

Even though a lab-grown diamond is physically, chemically, and aesthetically similar to a natural diamond, they can cost much less and are a more environmentally friendly alternative to mined diamonds.

Lab-grown diamonds, also known as cultivated, man-made, or even synthetic diamonds, are becoming more and more popular as engaged couples around the world choose lab-grown diamonds for their engagement ring.

Ethicality & Sustainability

Global initiatives, such as the UN's Kimberley Process, are working to eliminate mined blood diamonds from the market and have stopped 99.8% of the blood diamond traffic globally.

Choosing a lab-created diamond, then, guarantees complete transparency of the diamond's ethical origins, even though a mined diamond in the UK market is almost definitely conflict-free.

Lab-grown diamonds are a less disruptive and more environmentally friendly alternative to mined diamonds. Since lab-grown diamonds are not mined from the earth, they are thought to be more ecologically friendly, as no land needs to be utilized for the mining process.

Cost

The cost of lab-grown diamonds is lower than that of natural diamonds due to ongoing advancements in the methods and equipment used to produce them.

Lab-grown diamonds are less costly than naturally mined diamonds, carat for carat. This means that for your budget, you can opt for a larger carat weight, such as an upgrade from a 0.5-carat to a 1-carat engagement ring.

We invite you to meet with our instore team who will happy guide you in selecting the perfect lab-grown diamond to suit your budget.

Physical Properties

A lab-grown diamond is identical to a natural diamond in terms of appearance, chemistry, and physical properties. As a result, when examined, lab-grown diamonds will show up as genuine diamonds.

Due to their identical properties, lab-grown diamonds can be certified exactly like natural diamonds. We pride ourselves on sourcing the best diamonds from our reputable and trustworthy suppliers.

Lab-grown diamonds will last just as long as a natural diamond. Both natural and lab-grown diamonds measure 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness, making them very resistant to scratches, abrasion or breaking.

A lab-grown diamond will also have the optical characteristics as a natural diamond and will exhibit the same fire, scintillation, and sparkle.
