    Lab-grown diamonds are available in a variety of colors, including traditional whites and fancy colors like blue, pink, and yellow. We offer:

  • Traditional Colors: D-Z scale
  • Fancy Colors: Blue, Pink, Yellow, etc.
  • clarity

    From Flawless to Included, the clarity of a diamond refers to the presence of internal or external imperfections. We offer:

  • High Clarity: VVS1, VVS2, etc.
  • Budget-Friendly Options: SI1, SI2, etc.
  • carat weight

    Whether you prefer a dainty diamond or a statement piece, the carat weight determines the size of the diamond. We offer:

  • Wide Range: From 0.25 to 5+ carats
  • beyond the 4 cs: additional customization options

    metal type and color

    Choose from a variety of metals like Platinum, White Gold, Yellow Gold, and Rose Gold to complement your lab-grown diamond.
