About Lab Diamonds

What is a Lab Grown Diamond?

It’s a diamond. And a diamond is a diamond if the stone has a crystallized carbon structure. Diamonds can be grown in a lab to be the same as diamonds found in the earth. Since they are chemically identical, they exhibit the same captivating properties.

Why Choose a Lab Diamond?

  • Eco-Friendly & Ethical

    Lab diamonds are better for the earth, better for workers and better for you because they are not mined.

  • High Quality

    Lab diamonds have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as diamonds found in the earth.

  • Better Value

    Excellent quality, at a lower price. Brilliant, isn’t it?

Lab Diamonds vs. Diamond Simulants

It is key to note the difference between lab grown diamonds and diamond simulants, such as the Nexus Diamond™ alternative from our sister company, Diamond Nexus. The main distinction between the two is chemical composition. Nexus Diamond alternatives are not made of carbon crystals as both lab diamonds and mined diamonds are, but they are graded on the 4Cs of Diamond Quality. Nexus Diamonds are D color (colorless) IF clarity (internally flawless) and Ideal Cut for maximum fire. Both lab diamonds and Nexus Diamond™ alternatives cost significantly less than mined diamonds without compromising the captivating visual properties of diamonds.

Lab Diamonds vs. Mined Diamonds

The only difference between lab diamonds and mined diamonds is origin. Lab grown diamonds are made using advanced technology that recreates the natural process of crystallizing carbon. They exhibit the same fire, brilliance and scintillation of mined diamonds. And for around 20-30% less than a natural diamond, there's no need to buy a mined stone ever again.
