Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds? Yes, they are, just like mined diamonds. Grown in a laboratory using state of the art technology, they offer superb quality, beauty and value for money – whilst also being environmentally sustainable and ethical.
All our lab grown diamond jewellery is set in sustainably sourced metals.
All of our jewellery that features ethical and sustainable lab grown diamonds is also set in 100% recycled gold, platinum or silver. So that your entire jewellery piece is kind to the environment and local communities.
We always ask our customers to review the jewellery they buy from us. Here’s what one had to say about our lab grown diamond earrings.
“Lab diamonds are the future! I was really impressed with these, absolutely no way I could tell them apart from natural diamond, if anything they look better as the lower price of lab diamonds meant I could get higher clarity. These earrings are beautifully sparkly, and a really nice size for diamond studs, especially when compared with the some of the lower carat studs. Professional packaging, great bang for your buck on the item itself, simple guides to the buying process and no concerns about conflict diamonds? The Diamond Store gets a thumbs up from me.”
Yes. Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds, just like mined diamonds. They are grown in a laboratory using state of the art technology.
Exactly the same as natural diamonds, lab grown diamonds consist of carbon atoms in a lattice crystal structure.
Yes. Lab grown diamonds have the same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds so they look exactly the same.
They can only be told apart from their mined counterparts by using special laboratory equipment that can detect the very slight differences in crystal growth.
Yes. The same as natural diamonds, lab grown diamond can have very slight colour differences, as well as tiny imperfections called “inclusions”. These affect the colour and clarity grades of lab grown diamonds and, consequently, their price.
Just as with our natural diamonds, our gemmologist rigorously selects each of our lab grown diamond by hand to ensure its high quality.
Just like the natural diamonds we sell, our lab grown diamond solitaire pendants, earrings and rings at 0.25 carats and above come with a diamond certificate.
By clicking the Product Specifications tab on our product pages you’ll easily see what type of documents and certificates are included with your diamond.
Lab grown diamonds are hi-tech luxury goods. A fusion of art and technology, the process is exacting and expensive.
However, compared to the rarity of natural diamonds and the cost of finding and extraction, lab grown diamonds still offer a considerable saving.
Yes, lab grown diamonds are ethical and sustainable. While all the mined diamonds we sell are guaranteed conflict-free, additionally, our lab grown diamonds are the environmentally sustainable and ethical choice.
This is because they have not been mined from the ground and, therefore, their production protects the environment.
No. Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds.
Fake diamond alternatives, like cubic zirconia or moissanite, are manufactured from completely different raw materials, not true carbon crystals.
For example, cubic zirconia is made from zirconium dioxide and you only need to look at it with a naked eye to easily distinguish it from natural or lab grown diamonds.
Whatever type of diamond you decide to buy, we promise you luxury with confidence.
The most important thing is that you pick a beautiful piece of jewellery that speaks to you personally.
Mined diamonds and lab grown diamonds are both real diamonds, so the decision is entirely yours – and now you have a world of choice.
