Yes, lab-grown diamonds are diamonds of the highest quality. That means they are optically, chemically, thermally and physically identical to mined diamonds, and are rated by the same “4Cs” – clarity, cut, colour and carat. Just like mined diamonds, they start out in the rough and are then meticulously crafted by skilled artisans to unleash the individual fire and beauty in each stone. The main difference between lab-grown diamonds and mined diamonds is that lab-grown diamonds are formed above ground, whereas mined diamonds are drawn from the earth.
Lab-grown diamonds are optically, chemically, physically and thermally identical to mined diamonds but created above ground.
Pandora’s lab-grown diamonds are grown using the Chemical Vapor Deposition technology (CVD) that results in a diamond rough. The rough diamond is cut and polished into unique, individual diamonds the same way that diamonds have always been cut and polished.
They are a remarkable example of how innovation can replicate the natural growing process.
Setting a shining example
Each lab-grown diamond is individually made by skilled artisans, with exacting standards for remarkable cut, colour and clarity. And because precious stones require precious settings, our lab-grown diamond pieces are crafted with recycled silver and gold for an inspired addition to your forever collection. Read more here.
The 4Cs of lab-grown diamonds
Optically, chemically, thermally and physically identical to mined diamonds, our lab-grown diamonds are held to the same standards of beauty and quality, known as the 4Cs: cut, clarity, colour and carat.
Cut defines a diamond’s personality and fire. By perfecting precise angles, proportions and symmetry, every stone we create is masterfully cut to draw maximum brilliance and sparkle. All of our lab-grown diamonds are excellent cut.
A lab-grown diamond’s clarity grade evaluates flawlessness, overall value and beauty. Among the most perfect and beautiful in the industry, all of our diamonds are VS+ - with no imperfections visible to the naked eye.
Like a report card on how white or colourless a stone is, diamonds are graded from D to Z. When it comes to ours, only G-J (near colorless) make the grade for best-in-class brilliance.
Carat refers to the weight of a diamond, not the size. Our lab-grown diamonds come in multiple carat weights. No matter which carat weight you choose, the quality of the other 3Cs remains as promised.
