LAB GROWN VS. MINED

LAB GROWN

~$800 per carat

The value of a lab-grown diamond is defined
by the industry as a % of mined diamonds.

100% are Type II A Diamonds

Our diamonds are chemically pure diamonds - they have no measurable nitrogen or boron impurities.

Lab grown diamonds are often colorless or near colorless.

MINED

~$1,500 per carat.

Value of a mined diamond and its resale value has gone down.

~2% are Type II A Diamonds

Only 1 - 2% of all mined diamonds are Type II A Diamonds.

Each piece is designed to start a new lineage of clean, environmentally friendly diamonds that will bridge future generations through timeless styles.

HOW THEY'RE MADE

GROWN NOT MINED.

Lab-grown diamonds are made by grafting a small piece of a diamond and growing it in a high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) machine that mimics the pressure of the earth and the sun. This creates the habitat necessary to grow a lab-grown diamond into any sized carat.
