Thanks to innovations in technology, lab-grown diamonds are a sustainable and affordable choice for your next fine jewellery splurge.
If you’re shopping for jewellery in Hong Kong, whether it’s fine jewellery or bespoke designs from Hong Kong’s top jewellery designers, lab-grown diamonds should be at the top of your list of sparklers. Not only are lab-grown diamonds more affordable, but the lab-grown production process—as compared to the mining of natural diamonds—has a lower environmental impact. In addition, lab-grown diamonds are traceable and conflict-free. Diamonds are forever, as the saying goes, but lab-grown diamonds—which are just as sparkly!—are also for everyone. Before purchasing your next diamond, consider these lab-grown diamond choices in Hong Kong.
Shop lab-grown diamonds
Not only is De Beers the world’s largest diamond mining company, but in 2018 it also launched Lightbox, a unique line of lab-grown diamonds. It’s safe to say that these people know diamonds so you can trust the pricing guarantee of USD 800 per carat. Looking for a stone of unusual colour? Their innovative technology can create lab-grown diamonds in colours that are extremely rare in nature, like blush pink and soft blue.
Shop Lightbox online with free shipping to Hong Kong.
2. Gentle Diamonds
CARAT London has recently launched Gentle Diamonds, which is a unique range of jewellery featuring sustainable, lab-grown diamonds. In addition to being certified 100% conflict-free, the designs feature very pure and rare Type IIa lab-grown diamonds. In comparison, less than two percent of mined diamonds have received such classification of purity.
You can shop the Gentle Diamonds collection at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
3. Lark & Berry
This London-based fine jeweler made a splash on the red carpet at the 2020 Academy Awards with a diamond necklace designed for Billy Porter. Launched in 2018, Lark & Berry has built a reputation for being truly sustainable; the company works with One Tree Planted to donate trees to help with reforestation projects primarily in Africa, where people have suffered the worst consequences from diamond mining. They are also one of the few e-commerce brands to offset 100% of the company’s carbon emissions from shipping.
Shop Lark & Berry online with free shipping on orders above £400 (HKD 4,270).
