Let's start with the basics -
What is a diamond?
Put simply, a diamond is made out of carbon atoms formed in a cubic crystal structure. Both cultured diamonds and mined diamonds exhibit the same cubic formation, making them physically, chemically and aesthetically identical.
So, then how are cultured diamonds made?
By replicating a mined diamond’s formation - scientists have managed to grow rough diamond crystals in a chamber using extremely high temperatures and pressures with an essential element - carbon.
Once it’s grown, it is analysed, cut and then polished into a diamond with its’ own unique clarity characteristics.
Most importantly -
what makes them so special?
Not only are they a sustainable and refined choice, but cultured diamonds don't pollute ground water, displace communities or wildlife and are guaranteed conflict-free.
By actively working with companies that are consciously reducing their carbon footprint, we are paving the way for our future generations to think differently and live boldly.
