"Lab-created diamonds are cultivated in a laboratory, but their quality, strength, optical finish, and overall physical and chemical properties are absolutely identical to those of mined diamonds, which grow over millions of years beneath the Earth. Swarovski Created Diamonds have all the characteristics of genuine diamonds."
INTERNATIONAL GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE, 2016
When Daniel Swarovski founded his company in 1895, his vision was to make luxury accessible by producing dream filled jewels available to all women of all ages around the world, and to inject glamour into women‘s everyday lives. Swarovski Created Diamonds build on Swarovski‘s 125-year heritage of creativity, craftsmanship and innovation, marking a new step forward in the company‘s brilliant history of innovative man-made materials.
While honoring the miracle of nature, lab scientists utilize groundbreaking technology to speed up the extraordinary diamond formation process. Under laboratory conditions of intense heat and pressure, a tiny diamond seed is nurtured with carbon atoms. Layer by layer, the diamond grows and forms before being precision-cut to perfection by expert master cutters. The result is a man-made diamond identical to its natural counterpart.
Lab created diamonds are 100% diamonds and can only be distinguished from mined diamonds with sophisticated lab equipment. The only difference is that the origin is a laboratory and not the earth. Swarovski Created Diamonds are identical to mined diamonds possessing the same chemical composition, hardness, brilliance and fire – just as a greenhouse-grown orchid is identical to one found in nature.
All Swarovski Created Diamonds are inspected by an independent gemological institute to prove that they are laboratory grown. Same as mined diamonds our lab created diamonds are hand-selected and graded per the 4Cs of clarity, color, cut and carat weight. As always, Swarovski Created Diamonds are cut to the highest Swarovski standards.
Since lab created diamonds can only be distinguished from mined diamonds with sophisticated lab equipment our Swarovski Created Diamonds 0.10 ct and larger are laser engraved to clearly identify them as man-made. The microscopic inscription „SWAROVSKI CREATED DIAMOND“ is only visible under strong (20x) magnification.
Swarovski, renowned leader in the precision-cutting of jewelry stones, reveals the true beauty of lab created diamonds. Swarovski Created Diamonds are 100% diamonds, only the origin is a laboratory, not the earth. Hardness, brilliance and fire are identical to mined diamonds. This quality seal is an endorsement standing for Swarovski’s commitment to excellence since 1895.
