ORIGIN: LAB CREATED
Lab created diamonds, also known as cultured diamonds, are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technology. Our lab created diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds. Since no mining is necessary to produce these gemstones, they are an especially environmentally friendly choice. Our lab diamonds are tested by an independent grading laboratory to confirm their lab created origin.
BRILLIANT EARTH goes above and beyond the current industry standards to offer diamonds that were selected for their ethical and environmentally responsible origins. Our mission is to cultivate a more compassionate, transparent, and sustainable jewelry industry.
Carat: 1.7 CT
The carat is the unit of weight of a diamond. Carat is often confused with size even though it is actually a measure of weight. One carat equals 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams. The scale below illustrates the typical size relationship between diamonds of increasing carat weights. Remember that while the measurements below are typical, every diamond is unique.
The cut refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond. The cut of a diamond – its form and finish, its depth and width, the uniformity of the facets – determines its beauty. The skill with which a diamond is cut determines how well it reflects and refracts light.
Color is the natural color visible in a diamond and does not change over time. Colorless diamonds allow more light to pass through than a colored diamond, releasing more sparkle and fire. Acting as a prism, a diamond divides light into a spectrum of colors and reflects this light as colorful flashes called fire
A diamond’s clarity refers to the presence of impurities on and within the stone. When a rough stone is extracted from carbon deep beneath the earth, tiny traces of natural elements are almost always trapped inside and are called inclusions.
Slightly included 2. Inclusions are visible under 10x magnification and may be visible with unaided eye. More inclusions than SI1.
