Why Choose A Man-Made Diamond?

Some reputable jewellers by working closely with the world's most scientifically advanced diamond growers and cutters who share common core values, are able to offer exceptional lab-created diamonds that are affordably priced and conflict-free.

They pride themselves on being a leading lab-created diamond jeweller and know that not all grown diamonds are created equally. Some of them offer the best, ethically sourced, Type IIa lab-created diamonds available.

Unmatched Beauty

They offer collections of lab-created diamonds available up to IF in clarity, D in color, Ideal in cut, and up to 10 carats in size. They come in a variety of shapes including round, emerald, cushion, oval, heart, princess, and radiant. Colors include white, yellow, blue, pink, and green. Inventory and availability of fancy colors varies from day to day.

Unrivaled Quality

Some good jewellers, offer every lab-created diamond in Type IIa, the purest form of diamond. They are harder and more brilliant than Type Ia diamonds. Only 2% of earth mined diamonds are of this quality.

Furthermore, each lab-created diamond is graded and certified by the same leading independent gemological labs that are used to grade earth mined diamonds.

Unbeatable Value

Lab-created diamonds cost up to 40% less than their mined diamond equivalents. Buyers beware: keep an eye out for lab-created diamonds sold for a few hundred dollars per carat. If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Only diamond simulants fall in this price range.

Guaranteed Conflict-Free

Every lab-created diamond from some jewellers are guaranteed conflict-free and sourced from first world countries where they are treated and cut in a controlled lab environment.

Unlike earth mined diamonds, lab-created diamonds are created without negatively harming native communities, society or the Earth.

Earth Mined

The mining of earth mined diamonds results in hundreds of hectares of soil being disturbed (approximately 0.00091 hectares per carat), excessive carbon emissions and other greenhouse gas emissions that lead to deteriorated air quality and pollution. Additionally, approximately 126 gallons of water are used for every 1.0 carat diamond mined.


The amount of land disturbed in the creation of a lab-created diamond equates to 0.00000071 hectares per carat. The use of water is also minimal, with approximately 18.5 liters used in the creation of a 1.0 carat lab-created diamond.

How Long Does It Take To Make A Diamond?

It typically takes a few weeks to make a man-made diamond in the laboratory. This is a much shorter period than a natural diamond spends in the Earth, which can be millions or billions of years.

Where Are They Made?

We believe that commercial production of synthetic diamonds for jewellery use is taking place in China, Ukraine, Russia, Japan, the United States, and perhaps elsewhere.
