Lab-Created Diamonds

Lab-Created Diamonds

Introducing a modern and more affordable alternative - lab-created diamonds. The same beauty and quality as the natural variety just with a different origin.

Why Lab-Created Diamonds?

1. Value

Lab-created diamonds can be up to 30% cheaper than the natural variety. Perfect if you are on a tight budget or wish to maximise your diamond size for the same price.

2. Quality & Beauty

Lab-created diamonds exude the same beauty and quality as the natural variety - in fact, they are visually and chemically identical.

3. MODERN

Lab-created diamonds have taken the jewellery industry by storm. They are grown in a laboratory with the help of cutting edge technology - offering a modern alternative to natural diamonds.


What are Lab-Created Diamonds?

Lab-created diamonds, otherwise known as man-made or cultured diamonds, are grown in a laboratory using cutting edge technology that mimics the conditions under which natural diamonds develop. As they are formed from the same material and exposed to the same conditions, lab-created diamonds are optically and chemically identical to the natural variety.

STEP 4:
DIAMOND IS READY

Our lab-created diamonds are, as their name suggests - made in a laboratory. Each diamond starts its life as a tiny carbon seed. It is then exposed to extreme heat and pressure or entered into a deposition process (known as CVD), to mimic the process of natural diamond formation. It then grows within the laboratory, usually in six to ten weeks, and is cut and polished in the same way that natural diamonds are.

Are Lab-Created Diamonds Real?

Yes! Lab-created diamonds are real diamonds - just with a different origin. They are visually and chemically identical, so they cannot be differentiated by eye, and specialist equipment is required to tell them apart.

Lab Diamonds VS. Natural Diamonds

Lab-created diamonds and natural diamonds are equally as beautiful as each other. Both are chemically and visually identical, and therefore impossible to differentiate. The only real difference is their origin. Lab-created diamonds are man-made and grown in a laboratory, while natural diamonds are natural and formed within the Earth’s mantle. While natural diamonds are still the favoured traditional choice, lab diamonds can be up to 30% cheaper than a natural diamond of the same size and quality.
