What sets Clean Origin apart from other lab grown diamond providers?
In a word? Alexander says, “Everything!” With decades of experience, his company is determined to make diamonds more accessible to everyone. He doesn’t want people to go into heavy debt, yet wants anyone who would like a diamond to be able to afford a lab grown diamond instead of mined. And since his company sells only lab grown diamonds, unlike others who offer a mix. In this way, they are the expert in lab grown as it’s the only thing they sell.
Who is the typical customer for lab grown diamonds?
The target audience of lab grown diamonds is, typically, “Anyone who’s heard of lab grown diamonds. Awareness it the big limitation.” Many people wonder, are lab created diamonds real? Is a lab grown diamond a real diamond? and the answer is yes. Lab made diamonds are just as “real” as mined; however, unlike mined, lab diamonds are ethically sourced so you can feel good about your purchase.
Is there a price difference between lab grown and mined?
Yes, between 25%-50% savings in the best lab grown diamonds you can buy from Clean Origin versus mined diamonds.
For a couple seeking an engagement ring, they can spend less and feel good about their purchase, perhaps “put that money in the bank or take a better honeymoon”. :)
Do you insure a lab grown diamond differently than mined?
Yes, you can insure a lab grown diamond just the same as a mined diamond.
How are lab grown diamonds created, and how is that different or similar to how mined diamonds are created?
Lab grown diamonds are created by mimicking the natural processes that occur in the earth in a lab environment and accelerating the process.
What is the difference between a lab diamond and mined diamond? Is a lab diamond “synthetic”?
The FTC ruled in 2018 that lab diamonds and mined diamonds are the same thing. It is a man-made or “above-ground” or lab created diamond rather than “synthetic”.
How much can you expect to save on lab grown diamonds vs. mined?
You’ll see a typical 30% savings in lab grown versus standard mined diamonds.
Are lab-grown diamonds flawless?
No — just as nature’s process, there are different colors that come out and different imperfections that come out. All we do as a lab-grown diamond is accelerate the process. Lab grown diamonds are certified — IGI — just as mined diamonds are certified. It is the same process.
What shape of diamond is most popular right now?
These perfectly cut diamonds will give you all the shimmer and sparkle that you could ever imagine! The impeccable symmetry from the cut results in eight sharp ‘arrows’ that can be seen when the diamond is facing upwards and exposes eight ‘hearts’ when it is reversed. Diamonds with this cut grade are very rare. It’s estimated that less than 1% off all the diamonds in the world hold this incredible badge of artistry.
