Urban Diamonds are man-made, lab grown diamonds and are identical to mined diamonds containing the same chemical, physical and optical properties.
The Urban Diamond Collection of jewelry is made from lab grown diamonds while ensuring the metals used are conflict-free. The line is designed for the urbanite who values, appreciates and holds socially conscious and globally sustainable views, while enjoying the rarity and beauty of an affordable luxury. Now you do not have to compromise!
Lab grown diamonds are grown with the use of pre existing diamond seeds. The laboratory replicates natures process of creating diamonds at the atomic level. In a controlled environment of high temperatures and high pressure HTHP or a slow process of deposition of carbon atoms CVD rough lab grown diamonds are formed.
The lab grown diamond rough goes through the same process as that of a mined diamond including planing, cleaving or sawing, bruting, polishing and final grading. Just like in nature the color of lab grown diamonds is based on the trace elements present during the growth process. Colors range from colorless, vivid yellow and chocolate brown, to other rarer colors such as pink.
Urban Diamonds offer many reasons to be the preferred alternative diamond to the mined diamond. The rapidly growing number of environmental and socially conscious consumers choose to wear the Urban Diamond and share love with their significant others, while caring for the preservation of natural resources for future generations by creating a smaller carbon footprint with minimal environmental impact. Most recently in a study conducted by MVI Marketing it showed that 66% of millennials would prefer a lab-grown diamond over a mined counterpart.
Urban Diamond. Lab Grown... For Eternity.
