Lab-Grown vs Natural Diamonds: Which One is Better?
Lab-grown diamond jewelry is becoming a popular option for eco-conscious couples—and with good reason. "Laboratory-grown diamonds are essentially chemically and optically the same as their natural counterparts," says the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). 💎
As such, we are pleased to announce that our premium jewelry pieces are now available in IGI-certified lab-grown diamond options. ✨ The International Gemological Institute (IGI) is the global expert for grading lab-made diamonds. After all, our commitment has always been to create and champion beautiful yet ethical and eco-conscious Engagement Rings, Wedding Bands, and fine jewelry in the Philippines. 💍

- An Ode to Tradition ⏳ - Diamond is considered the customary choice for Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands due to its longstanding symbolism of true love. Eco-conscious couples who'd like to honor this heritage prefer a lab-made option instead, getting the same gemstone with zero compromises.
- Great Value for a High-quality Gem 💎 - Lab-grown diamonds are created in a controlled environment that allows for a precise cut, maximum clarity, and minimal inclusions—all in a fraction of the time natural diamonds develop. As such, these lab-made gemstones are created with great quality yet more reasonable price than Earth-mined diamonds.
- An Ethical and Conflict-free Choice 🌏 - Natural diamonds, sometimes referred to as blood diamonds or conflict diamonds, have their fair share of issues. Choosing lab-made diamonds instead veers away from these worries, making sure you have an ethically made gemstone to symbolize your love.
