What are lab-grown diamonds?

Setting a shining example

Lab-grown diamonds are optically, chemically, physically and thermally identical to mined diamonds but created above ground. Each lab-grown diamond is individually made by skilled artisans, with exacting standards for remarkable cut, color and clarity. And because precious stones require precious settings, our lab-grown diamond pieces are crafted with recycled silver and gold for an inspired addition to your forever collection. Read more here.

The 4Cs of lab-grown diamonds

Optically, chemically, thermally and physically identical to mined diamonds, our lab-grown diamonds are held to the same standards of beauty and quality, known as the 4Cs: cut, clarity, color and carat.

Cut defines a diamond’s personality and fire. By perfecting precise angles, proportions and symmetry, every stone we create is masterfully cut to draw maximum brilliance and sparkle. All of our lab-grown diamonds are excellent cut.

A lab-grown diamond’s clarity grade evaluates flawlessness, overall value and beauty. Among the most perfect and beautiful in the industry, all of our diamonds are VS+ - with no imperfections visible to the naked eye.

Like a report card on how white or colorless a stone is, diamonds are graded from D to Z. When it comes to ours, only G-J (near colorless) make the grade for best-in-class brilliance.

Carat refers to the weight of a diamond, not the size. Our lab-grown diamonds come in multiple carat weights. No matter which carat weight you choose, the quality of the other 3Cs remains as promised.
