Diamond jewellery is something that has been sought after for centuries. Diamonds are regarded as some of the most precious and elegant stones that a person could don around their neck, wrist, and most prominently their fingers.
Used predominantly as wedding and engagement rings, the diamond’s popularity continues to soar, but many people are turning away from standard, mined diamond and looking to the more environmentally friendly and less expensive (yet equally as beautiful) cultured, lab-grown diamonds.
These man-made diamonds are 100% diamonds and are every bit as sophisticated and gorgeous as the mined diamonds but come at a fraction of the cost and at a fraction of the environmental damage. They also come in a variety of colours, predominantly, white, yellow, pink and blue. It is important to note, that although man-made diamonds are comparatively better priced, they are by no means cheap! They would still be regarded as one of the more expensive gemstones on the market.
Synthetic diamonds are diamonds that do not occur naturally and instead are man made. Not only are these cultivated diamonds every bit as beautiful as a traditionally mined diamond (if not more beautiful), they are conflict free.
With all of the controversy surrounding the mining of natural diamonds, this environmentally friendly and conflict free alternative allows our clients to wear beautiful diamond pieces without having any of the guilt associated with the mining process. Lab grown diamonds are often created in facilities that are designed to create as little emissions as possible, while the mines that real diamonds are extracted from often take a lot of machinery and manpower to produce, which unfortunately leave a much larger footprint on the ozone and on the environment in general.
