The most exciting development in jewelry these days is the quality of lab-grown, or cultured diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds are chemically identical to naturally-mined diamonds, and are more affordable because they require less man-power to produce.
This means you will get more diamond for your dollar! These are not synthetic stones or other minerals passed off as diamond look-alikes. These are recognized by the GIA as authentic diamonds, and should be marked as such on the girdle of the gemstone.
We welcome you to come in and compare stones, natural and lab-grown, and decide for yourself. https://4cs.gia.edu/en-us/laboratory-grown-diamond/
