What our customers are saying about lab grown diamonds

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.

yellow gold

“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.”

Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds?

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 mined diamonds, lab grown diamonds consist of carbon atoms in a lattice crystal structure.

white gold

Do lab grown diamonds look the same as mined diamonds?

Yes. Lab grown diamonds have the same physical and chemical properties as mined 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.

Carats and purity

Do lab grown diamonds come with a quality certificate?

Just like the mined diamonds we sell, our lab grown diamond solitaire pendants, earrings and rings at 0.25 carats and above come with a diamond certificate.

Simply click on the Product Specifications tab on our product pages to see any certificates included with your diamond.

Carats and purity

Are lab grown diamonds more affordable?

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 mined diamonds and the cost of finding and extraction, lab grown diamonds still offer a considerable saving.

Are lab grown diamonds ethical and sustainable?

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.

Carats and purity

Are lab grown diamonds fake?

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 mined or lab grown diamonds.
