DIAMONDS: Mined & Lab-GrownVisit our Showroom and See the Difference!
What are Mined Diamonds?
Mined Diamonds form deep in the earth’s crust, where heat and pressure slowly cause the diamonds structure to form over billions of years. They’ve been used in jewelry as early as the fourth century BC, and the very first diamond engagement ring was made in the 1400’s. Their beauty and their strength has long symbolized eternity and love.
What are Lab-Grown Diamonds?
Lab-Grown Diamonds are real diamonds, physically and compositionally the same as diamonds which have been naturally mined from the earth. Under the ideal heat and pressure conditions in a lab setting, diamonds can form in a matter of months rather than billions of years.
What kind of diamonds should I buy?
Mined diamonds and lab-grown diamonds are both excellent choices. They are both real diamonds, and offer the same variety of shapes, sizes and qualities. Which diamonds you choose to buy is a personal decision based on what you value most – Either way you decide, you’ll end up with an amazing gemstone.
