Why should I buy a
lab created diamond?

We find the majority of customers decide to buy lab diamonds instead of mined diamonds for 3 main reasons. The first reason is the savings which are around 75-80% which is very significant no matter how much money anyone has. The second reason, is because they are sustainable and ethical, and the third reason is because they are identical visually and chemically. This make buying a man made diamond a no brainer.

Why should I choose lab grown diamonds over mined diamonds?

Lab grown diamonds in Germany have gained remarkable popularity for three key reasons:

AFFORDABILITY: Lab diamonds provide a cost-effective alternative to mined diamonds, enabling you to own a captivating diamond ring without surpassing your budget. These diamonds are considerably less expensive than mined diamonds, ensuring accessibility for all.

INDISTINGUISHABLE APPEARANCE AND CHEMICAL COMPOSITION: Lab created diamonds are indistinguishable from mined diamonds in terms of their physical appearance and their chemical and optical properties. This implies that your lab grown diamond possesses the same beauty and durability as a mined diamond, ensuring your purchase is a worthwhile investment.

ETHICAL AND CONFLICT-FREE: Our man made diamonds are ethical and are real conflict free. They are environmentally friendly and sustainable, making them the only genuinely ethical diamonds available in the market. You can have confidence that your purchase was made with integrity, causing no harm to individuals or the environment.

Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds or simulants?

Lab diamonds are 100% real, a word of caution: the diamond market is experiencing an increase in misleading practices. Always be sceptical about platforms and retailers that are trying to sell you imitation diamonds. The most common buzzwords they use are round brilliant, synthetic diamonds, artificial, moissanite, cubic zirconia, crystals, and diamond simulants, in an attempt to fool the public into thinking they’re buying real diamonds. All of those clever terms, however, don’t refer to real diamonds, which often catches many new buyers by surprise. A diamond engagement ring is far too important to not get it right the first time, so you should only buy from trusted and proven diamond retailers. It is very important to take your time, read reviews, and, most importantly, make sure that the diamond you wish to purchase is authentic and certified. On the other hand, a number of alternative labels identify real lab grown diamonds and NOT simulants: Manufactured Diamonds, Lab Created Diamonds, Cultured Diamonds, Above Earth Diamonds, Mine-Free Diamonds, Ethical Diamonds, CVD diamonds and HPHT diamonds. They all refer to man made diamonds, just in different words.

Gemmologist Note: Synthetic diamonds are lab made diamonds; however, there are websites out there taking advantage of this fact by using the term synthetic diamonds to peddle cubic zirconia. To be on the safe side, it’s always best to avoid any stones labelled synthetic ‘diamonds’.

• Are lab grown diamonds real?

Yes, they are real diamonds. They are created using the same chemical and physical processes that happen naturally inside the Earth but are grown in a controlled laboratory environment where a starter seed of diamond crystal gradually becomes bigger as more and more carbon atoms are deposited on it. Lab made diamonds are chemically, physically, and optically identical to natural diamonds and are scientifically proven to be real diamonds. IGI and GIA, two of the world's foremost authorities on diamonds, coloured stones, and pearls, grade man made diamonds the same way they grade mined diamonds using the same scale.

• How much can you save getting a lab diamond?

The price is significantly lower than the price of mined diamonds. The exact price difference will depend on various factors such as the size, quality, and specific type of diamond, but on average, lab created diamonds are around 75% cheaper than natural diamonds. This is because the cost of producing rough is much lower than the cost of mining and extracting rough natural diamonds from the Earth. However, the rest of the process that a rough diamond, whether from a mine or a lab, goes through to be retail ready, like cutting, polishing, certification, shipping, and insurance are all exactly the same.

• Do lab diamonds test as real diamonds?

JYes, they do. When using a diamond tester, all lab created diamonds will test as diamonds. Chemically, physically, and optically there is no difference to a natural diamonds, so they will exhibit the same properties and characteristics when tested. This includes hardness, refractive index, thermal conductivity, and other properties that are unique to diamonds, both mined and man made.

• Do lab grown diamonds have inclusions?

Yes, most lab diamonds have inclusions, just like natural diamonds. Inclusions are natural imperfections that are found within diamonds, and they can occur in both natural and lab made. Inclusions can take many different forms, such as tiny bubbles or carbon deposits that were trapped inside the diamond as it was forming. Just like natural diamonds, most diamonds created in labs have flaws, and only very few become flawless. Check our 4Cs guide to learn more about colour, clarity, cut and carat of diamonds.

• Can lab diamonds be insured?

Yes, all lab diamond rings in UK and jewellery can be insured. All lab created diamonds are considered to be real diamonds, so they can be insured just like mined diamonds. You can purchase insurance from any company that accepts jewellery insurance. Insurance policies vary but usually they cover the cost of replacing or repairing your item if it is lost, stolen, or damaged. It is important to read the terms of your insurance policy carefully to understand what is covered and what is not.

• What if the Ring doesn’t fit?

It may be that the ring is too wide or too tight. In both cases we offer you a free ring size change within the first 12 months after purchase of the ring.You can either book an appointment on site and drop off the ring and have your ring size measured by our staff, or you can let us know by phone or email and send the ring back to us.
The ring size change takes 1-2 weeks on average.

• Are labgrown diamonds certificated?

Yes, all diamonds have their own certificate. These are handed out by IGI (International Gemological Institute) or GIA (Gemological Institute of America). Two world leading companies that specialize in the certification of gemstones. IGI and GIA evaluate lab diamonds according to the same criteria as natural diamonds.The certificate number is always engraved in the corresponding diamond, which always guarantees that diamond and certificate belong together.
