3 Reasons to Consider Lab Grown Diamonds for Your Engagement Ring.
Creating custom bridal jewelry is one of my favorite things to do. The process of meeting with a couple, hearing about what makes them unique, and taking elements of their one of a kind love story to create a dazzling diamond engagement ring is awesome. Now I’ve found a way to elevate that experience to an even greater degree, by offering lab grown diamonds to my customers.
Lab Grown Diamonds are Real Diamonds. Lab grown diamonds are exactly the same as mined diamonds. They have an identical chemical structure. Jewelers can’t tell a lab grown diamond from a mined diamond using a loupe; no one can do it with their naked eye. Lab grown diamonds have all the sparkle, shine, durability and brilliance of mined diamonds.
Human rights matter to me, and I’m sure they matter to you too. The diamond industry has been taking steps to improve the conditions of diamond miners around the world. Still, there is a lot of work to be done. Many diamonds are produced in very harsh environments, where workers – who are sometimes children – spend long hours toiling for meager wages. Lab grown diamonds are produced in safe, controlled laboratory conditions. Workers are paid fairly and are treated with respect.
Lab Grown Diamonds are much better for the environment. We only have one planet to call home. We all have a responsibility to take care of it. Traditional diamond mining tears into the Earth and involves the use of a lot of petrochemicals to power machinery, transport and cut gems, and more. Lab grown diamonds offer a sustainable alternative. You can have a beautiful diamond and know you’re helping the planet heal.
If you have a budget you’ll love Lab Grown Diamonds. When you’re planning a wedding, saving money is important! Lab grown diamonds retail for between 10-25% less than their traditionally mined counterparts. This means you can either get a larger stone than you originally intended, or you can bank that savings for a great honeymoon trip. Either way, it’s a win.
I’d be happy to talk with you and show you examples so you can see for yourself. Lab grown diamonds are a relatively new technology, and people have lots of questions. The JewelSmiths team would be happy to meet with you at any time. We can show you examples of lab grown and traditionally mined diamonds so you can see and compare them for yourself. This is a no-pressure, no-obligation conversation: our goal is to help you choose the diamond engagement ring of your dreams and we understand that can take time. No appointment necessary – we’re open at 10 am Monday through Friday, 11 on Saturdays!
