Lab-grown diamonds are chemically, optically, and physically identical to naturally occurring diamonds and the hardest of all gemstones.
We love using lab-created diamonds in engagement rings and tennis bracelets or other jewelery that sees heavy use since they retain their brilliance, fire and scintillation better than other gemstones.
Colored gemstones, such as rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, aren’t as hard as diamonds, which are a 10 on the Mohs hardness scale.
Diamonds can be worn for a lifetime and maintain their brilliance throughout. If you’re looking for a lasting gemstone choice for yourself or a loved one, created diamonds are one of your best options.
