There is truly nothing like the beauty and fire of a diamond. Until recently, diamonds were only found in mines, in far away lands, and came with large price tags. Today, technology has given us more options, with diamonds born in laboratories available in addition to those found in mines.
Laboratory grown diamonds are chemically and scientifically the same as diamonds from mines, but are grown using high pressure, temperature and radiation, under controlled conditions. The finished crystals are cut and faceted, just like stones from the ground. The hardness and beauty are the same, but the price is often more reasonable.
Also known as "Eco Diamonds," lab grown diamonds are considered by some to be more environmentally friendly, as no hole must be dug in the Earth to find them. Although today's standards provide safe conditions for mine workers and tradespeople, some also consider lab grown diamonds to be a more ethical and socially conscious choice, as there is no chance of unfair labor or export practices.
These beautiful diamond earrings are set in simple, yet elegant martini style settings with three prongs. This allows the diamonds to be the center of attention, shining brightly for all to see. The tapered design also keeps them from being weighed down, ensuring the stones stay straight.
At over 3/4 carat in total weight, these diamonds are professionally graded by GCAL, and are laser etched with a serial number to guarantee their authenticity. The set is accompanied by a certificate, for your personal reference or insurance purposes.
