Real Diamonds vs Simulants
Our cultured diamonds are NOT simulants nor lookalikes.
A diamond simulant (i.e., cubic zirconia or moissanite) merely resembles a diamond but does not possess the same properties.
Our cultured diamonds are REAL diamonds in every respect: chemically, physically, and optically equal to mined diamonds.
This means that they are still measured by the 4Cs: CARAT, which is the weght of the diamond, COLOR which is amount of tint that the stone has, CLARITY which refers to internal features and CUT which refers to a stone’s proportions.
The only difference is the origin: one is grown above the ground while the other is mined under ground.
Cultured diamonds are non-mined and are the socially responsible choice.
