Lab-grown diamonds are created in a lab by replicating the high heat and high pressure environment that causes a natural diamond to form. They are compositionally identical to natural mined diamonds (hardness, density, light refraction, etc), and the two look exactly the same. A lab-grown diamond is an attractive alternative for those seeking a product with less environmental footprint. Also, you never need to worry if it's conflict-free!
Formed over billions of years, natural diamonds are mined from the earth. Diamond mining has many detrimental impacts on the environment including soil erosion, deforestation, and ecosystem destruction. Mining a diamond from the earth makes it a rare commodity and has been produced in war zones to finance civil wars. Our diamonds are sourced from known mines in conflict-free countries.
