What is a lab-grown diamond?
As the name defines, it is a diamond that has been grown in a laboratory, using the latest, cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond formation process.
What does Âme-grown® diamonds mean?
Âme-grown® diamonds are diamonds grown by Âme Fine Jewelry House. We grow our diamonds to fit our creative ideas.
What is the difference between a mined and a lab-grown diamond?
The only difference between a mined diamond and a lab-grown diamond is the place of its origin. Natural diamonds are forged in the extreme pressure and heat generated in the bowels of the Earth, and lab-grown diamonds are created in similar conditions, but inside a machine. Lab-grown diamonds display the same chemical, physical and optical characteristics as mined diamonds, indistinguishable in materiality and appearance. Both types of diamond are then cut and polished in the same manner.
Where are Âme-grown® diamonds produced?
All Âme-grown® diamonds are made in the United States.
What raw materials are used to produce lab-grown diamonds?
One diamond produces another, with all lab-grown diamonds grown from tiny diamond seeds.
How are Âme-grown® diamonds certified?
Âme certifies that Âme-grown® diamonds are grown in the proprietary factory by Âme personnel. All Âme jewelry is certified by the International Gemological Institute (IGI) in New York.
What are the characteristics of Âme-grown® diamonds?
Âme-grown® diamonds display the same characteristics as mined diamonds. The innovative technology allows us to grow diamonds in a range of colors; we select only H+ VS+ to be set in our jewellery. Âme-grown® polished diamonds are of different cuts. We can produce round, baguette, emerald, trillion and square cut diamonds, all to concord with the designs of Elinor Avni, our Creative Director.
