What are lab diamonds?
Lab grown diamonds, which are often referred to as man-made diamonds, or artificially created diamonds, are diamonds which have been created in a laboratory setting. This setting has been engineered to perfectly emulate the natural process of a diamond’s growth. Natural diamonds can take up to 3 billion years to grow, whereas manufactured diamonds provide the option for beautiful diamond jewellery to be created with a much faster process.

Why choose a lab created diamond?
Lab grown diamonds are increasingly popular among jewellery buyers, offering exceptional quality and impressive sparkle. So, why should you choose a lab diamond over a naturally mined diamond?
- Value - usually, lab created diamonds tend to cost around 30% less than natural diamonds of the same quality and size.
- Responsible choice - no mining is required for the source of these diamonds, making them an ethically responsible choice.
- Brilliance and beauty - as these lab diamonds are man-made, with the same optical and chemical properties as natural diamonds, they offer the same brilliance and sparkle as mined.

Can I finance a lab diamond engagement ring?
Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds?
Lab grown diamonds are 100% real diamonds. Man-made diamonds bear no difference to a natural diamond – chemically, physically or visually.
When shopping for an engagement ring, you'll need to consider the style of the ring, the shape of the diamond, the metal of the band and the budget you have in mind. When choosing the diamond itself, you should consider the 4 C's of Diamond Quality. All of our diamond rings are independently certified, so you'll have all the information you need about the size and condition of your diamond.
How are lab diamonds created?
Lab diamonds are created in high-temperature chambers with high pressure, which reproduce the conditions in the Earth’s crust. The result of this reaction comes in the form of carbon atoms arranging in the structure of a diamond crystal – which offers the same brilliance and beauty as naturally mined diamonds.
What else are lab grown diamonds known as?
Lab grown diamonds are also known as man-made diamonds, lab created diamonds, synthetic diamonds or artificially created diamonds.
