Responsibly mined diamond or laboratory grown diamond? What is the difference? We get asked this question lots. The difference exists purely in the origin of our rough diamond crystal. Our mined diamonds were created deep within the earth under tremendous pressures and heat and are considered nature's works of art. Our laboratory grown diamonds are created through high-tech innovations able to recreate these same extreme conditions and are truly a marvel of science. Once our rough diamond crystals are either mined or grown they are then crafted by our diamontaires in similar fashion. They are cut, polished, and graded exactly the same. Their strength and beauty is indistinguishable to the naked eye. Only with sophisticated gemological equipment can even a professionally trained gemologist be certain of a diamond's origin. For more information about any of our diamonds one of our diamond specialists would be happy to speak with you.
