Diamonds are one of the most unique gemstones - not only are they the hardest natural substance, but they're also the only gemstone made of one single element - carbon.  Traditionally, diamonds are associated with being rare, expensive, and only for special occasions. Enter lab-grown diamonds - putting this notion in the past.

Lab-grown diamonds are exactly the same as natural diamonds in appearance, quality, and composition - meaning they're identical physically and chemically - but they're more ethical and affordable than natural diamonds because no mining is involved. 

Why lab-grown Diamonds

When I began designing the diamond fleck collection, I wanted to create a collection of beautiful diamond pieces that were accessible. I envisioned them to be the perfect starter diamond - gifts for graduation, confirmation, and 16th birthdays. 

But I also wanted to offer pieces that could be easily incorporated into a daily stack that can add elevated and precious sparkle to your everyday look at an affordable price. Lab-grown diamonds cost 60-80% less than natural diamonds, providing an excellent value.

My other deciding factor was related to sourcing the diamonds and ensuring that they were conflict-free and ethical. Lab-grown diamonds are a responsible choice because they're grown using precise technology and aren't mined from the earth.

What are lab-grown diamonds?

Using state-of-the-art technology that replicates the natural conditions found beneath the Earth's crust, diamonds are created from "seeds" of existing diamonds. This process yields a more ethical diamond, which possesses the same lattice crystal structure as those mined from the Earth.

lab-grown Diamonds vs. Natural Diamonds

When I heard about lab-grown diamonds my initial question was : are they real diamonds? I’m sure that’s the question you’re asking as well. And the answer is a resounding YES!

In quality, look, and composition, a man-made diamond is no different than a natural diamond. When lab-grown diamonds are tested with a diamond tester, they will register as real diamonds—only tests on specialized equipment can distinguish between the two.
