Grow your own diamond

on February 16, 2021

Have you ever thought that one day you might get a unique diamond that belongs only to you?

Natural diamonds are formed deep in the earth's crust, at extremely high temperatures and pressures, and then discovered by humans to vary in quality. Thanks to advances in technology, lab diamonds allow you to have your own diamond in a matter of weeks.

What makes your diamond unique? That is, you can determine the color, clarity, etc. of the diamond. Take colorless diamonds for instance, DEF is the best, GHIJ is close to colorless, while other qualities of diamonds are yellowish. In addition, it goes without saying that the larger the size of the diamond, the higher its price.

During the natural formation process, diamonds contain a greater or lesser amount of impurities. This is the clarity of the diamond. Depending on the visibility of the impurities, the clarity of a diamond is classified from high to low: FL Flawless, IF Flawless (Internally Flawless), VVS1 Very Slightly Included 1 (Very Very Slightly Included 1), VVS2 Very Slightly Included 2 (Very Very Slightly Included 2), VS1 Very Slightly Included 1 (Very Slightly Included 1), VS2 slightly Very Slightly Included 2 is included, SI1 is Slightly Included 1 and SI2 is Slightly Included 2. Generally speaking, impurities above VS2 are almost invisible to the naked eye. 

Each diamond is cut from a rough stone. It is crystal clear and shining. The diamond must be artificially cut into a special shape to optimize the reflection effect of light entering the diamond. Therefore, we classify the turning (cut) diamond into several grades, ranging from the highest to the lowest: EX Excellent, VG Very good, G Good, F Fair, P Poor.

Besides colorless diamonds, colored diamonds are also very popular, including yellow, pink, green, blue, purple and red diamonds, and so on. Because colored diamonds are more precious and scarcer than colorless diamonds, they are sold at higher prices. Thanks to laboratory diamonds, owning a lavishly colored diamond is no longer a dream.

Once a customized diamond is successfully produced, coupled with your exclusive jewelry design, you can be the most eye-catching presence!
