A disruptive innovation
A 10 carat synthetic diamond can form within a few weeks.
The origin is the only difference
A lab grown synthetic diamond is manmade but its physical or optical characteristics are identical to a mine diamond, including its chemical composition, its refractive index and the 4Cs. The 4Cs are the elements determining the price of our diamonds: Colour, Carat, Cut and Clarity.
To the naked eye or even with a 10X loupe, it is impossible to see the difference.
Lab grown diamonds are strictly identical to natural occurring diamonds, their only difference being their formation. One of them forms itself in kilometre deep depths, taking million of years, and the other one on the surface and within a few weeks. Like natural diamonds, they are certified by prestigious gem labs such as the IGI (International Gemological Institute) and the HRD (Hoge Raad poor diamants synthètiques). However, the consumer will see a big cost difference, since our Innocent Stone diamonds cost 40% less than the mine ones.
