ETHICALLY LAB GROWN DIAMONDS
Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds that are produced in an ethical and sustainable way.
A lab-grown diamond is produced by recreating the natural formation of a diamond (a natural diamond is created over millions of years, read more below).
A fragment of a diamond is used which is then subjected to pressure and high heat. This process is significantly shorter (weeks) and can be done anywhere in the world with few people involved.
The result is a traceable and conflict-free diamond.
Is a lab-grown diamond real?
It depends on what you put in the word authentic.
If a genuine diamond is a natural diamond that is mined from nature, the answer is no.
If a genuine diamond is a diamond produced by recreating nature's process with technology, the answer is yes.
A lab-grown diamond has the same physical, chemical and optical character as a natural diamond.
A lab-grown diamond is difficult to distinguish from a natural diamond.
It is impossible to see the difference with the naked eye. The appearance, luster and quality are identical.
Lab-grown diamonds are produced through technology in an ethical, sustainable and traceable manner.
Notice. The Swede Erik Lundblad was the first in the world to produce the first lab-grown diamond in 1953.
CONFLICT-FREE NATURAL DIAMONDS
The natural diamonds used in our diamond rings are conflict-free, approved and certified.
The diamonds are approved according to EU regulations 2368-2002.
We guarantee that our stones are not so-called conflict diamonds according to the Kimberley Process. Our manufacturer Guldbolaget uses suppliers who act in compliance with this process – a regulatory system for the international trade in rough diamonds.
HOW NATURAL DIAMONDS ARE FORMED
Natural diamonds are formed deep in the bedrock (160-200 km below the earth's surface) by compressing coal under high pressure and high heat. This process takes many millions of years.
The lava flow slowly pushes the diamond up towards the earth's surface.
The diamonds are dug up in countries such as Botswana, Canada and Russia and then cut and polished in Antwerp or India.
