We're proud to work with a single trusted lab grown diamond supplier and a single trusted natural diamond supplier.
Laboratory Grown Diamond
Laboratory grown rough diamonds are produced in very tightly controlled laboratory environments. The conditions have been designed to perfectly emulate those in which mined diamonds develop deep below the earth’s surface.
The key molecular component of diamonds is carbon. Laboratory grown diamonds are created with a diamond seed and an external source of carbon. When extreme pressures and temperatures are applied the carbon source grows on the diamond seed atom-by-atom and layer-by-layer.
This process creates a laboratory grown rough diamond that is then cut and polished like all diamonds.
We're proud to work with a single trusted natural diamond supplier from the Netherlands with over 20 years of experience in the natural diamond industry.
To ensure all natural diamonds are conflict free our supplier adheres the strict standards of the Kimberley Process.
The Kimberley Process (KP) is an international initiative to eliminate trade in conflict diamonds. By setting strict verifiable requirements the Kimberley Process is creating transparency and oversight in the diamond industry. This way we can guarantee our diamonds are 100% ethical.
Our lab-grown and natural diamonds of 0.5ct and higher are accompanied with full grading reports from the International Gemological Institute (IGI), one of the world’s leading gemological laboratories.
The 4 C's
The quality of a diamond is determined by the 4 C's: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat.
The way a diamond is Cut determines its sparkle. The brilliance of the diamond is created by cutting precision and perfect proportions. If the cutting factors are not optimized this will negatively affect the appearance of the diamond.
Color refers to the shade of the diamond. The most expensive and rare diamonds are colorless diamonds in the range D, E and F.
Clarity refers to the number of inclusions in the stone. The less inclusions the higher the quality of the diamond.
Carat is a measurement of weight/size.
