Question 1: Is a lab-grown diamond a real diamond?

Don’t be afraid to ask this question. We know it’s a newer term and is still unfamiliar to most. Lab-grown diamonds are not fake diamonds, they are very real. Let’s break it down so you can explain to your fiancé that you did, in fact, buy them a real diamond. Lab Grown Diamonds are identical to mined diamonds with the sole difference that they are grown in a lab and not in the ground. You will still find the same brilliance and sparkle!

Question 2: Are lab-grown diamonds environmentally friendly?

Lab-grown diamonds are environmentally friendly and conflict free. They are of equal quality to mined diamonds with the bonus of a clear conscience. If ethical shopping and fair trade are a part of your shopping game, this is for you! We believe in transparency – ask to see certification.
