WHAT ARE CULTURED DIAMONDS?
Cultured Diamonds are the ultimate, more affordable alternative to Mined Diamonds.
Cultured diamonds are not only physically, chemically and optically identical to mined diamonds, they are graded using the traditional four C’s: Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat, and are certified in the exact same way.
Cultured vs Mined
Let it be known: The only difference between a cultured diamond and a mined one, is its origin. One is made above the earth’s surface and the other, below it. That’s it, that’s the difference.
Benefits of a Cultured Diamond:
Purer to the eye under a jewellery eyeglass;
Lighter on the earth;
Free from conflict
HOW ARE CULTURED DIAMONDS MADE?
Cultured Diamonds are made using a small seed of lab-grown diamond placed in a plasma reactor. Here, the diamond is cultured into a precious stone.Once the diamond is formed, it is cut and polished into the desired shape and carat weight using the traditional techniques jewellers have used over centuries.
Cultured diamonds are a more affordable alternative to mined diamonds, with up to 70% less of a price to that of mined diamonds.
