Lab Grown Diamonds

What is a
Lab-Grown Diamond

Grown in highly controlled laboratory environments lab created diamonds are produced using advanced technological processes. They are created in a set up that replicates the conditions under which natural diamonds are formed. The internal structure of these man-made diamonds is that of actual carbon atoms arranged in the same structure of diamond crystals. These engineered or cultured diamonds as they are also called, have the same optical and chemical properties as mined diamonds.

gives diamonds a new meaning

“These stones have essentially the same optical, physical and chemical properties as mined diamonds. Thus, they are diamonds.” - FTC

Why lab grown Diamonds

Why lab grown Diamonds

The world is turning a new leaf and going green. So can you, by adopting lab-grown diamonds, the authentic, pure and safe new alternative.

True Diamond

Lab-grown diamonds are identical in every way to mined diamonds. They have the same chemical composition and other properties. The difference can only be distinguished in a gemological laboratory.

Conflict Free

Lab-grown diamonds are unaffected by political issues in war-torn areas across the globe. Their creation, cutting and polishing processes are not compromised by global conflict.

Eco Friendly

Lab-grown diamonds are created in facilities that are environment friendly and have a tiny ecological footprint. The production process of these diamonds consumes a minimal amount of energy and has almost no emissions that will impact the planet.

Cost Effective

Our lab-grown diamonds cost less than mined diamonds. They cost a fraction of the amount as compared to mined diamonds. They’re very pocket friendly and this gives everyone an opportunity to own one of these exquisite pieces.

Certified

Lab-grown diamonds are graded by the leading Gemological lab using the same four C’s that mined diamonds use. Each of our diamonds comes with a certification from a leading gem laboratory.

Value for money

Purchase a bigger lab grown diamond at the same price that you would pay for a small or average size mined diamond.

About Type IIa Diamond

The 4C’s of a diamond are Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat. The 5th C that most Chemical Composition. The composition of Diamonds is essentially that of Nitrogen & Boron impurities that occur during the formation. Out of 100% only 2% diamonds. We are proud to say that all Ethereal Green Diamonds are type IIa. examples of type IIa mined diamonds. Type IIa diamonds are very rare and they that are available in the market.

TYPE I

Ia diamonds contain Nitrogen (N) atoms in clusters. Approximately 95% of natural diamonds are type Ia diamonds.

Ib diamonds contain Nitrogen (N)atoms as isolated atoms instead of clusters.

Ia

With aggregated (N) pairs

Ib

Isolated single (N) impurities

people don’t know about but that is as important as the other 4C’s is the Pure Carbon. Although it is important to note that most mined diamonds contain of diamonds are found without any impurities, these diamonds are called type IIa diamonds. The Kohinoor diamond and the Hope diamond are some of the best are always valued at a much higher price in comparison to other types of diamonds

TYPE II

IIa diamonds have no measurable Nitrogen (N) or Boron (B) impurities, just pure Carbon (C). Less than 2% of mined diamonds are type IIa diamonds. All lab grown diamonds are type IIa diamonds.

IIb diamonds have Boron (B) as their trace element.

IIa

Without (N) or (B), impurities

IIb

With (B) impurities
