Thank you for posting this.  I have been wondering about this for a long time and I will look into those links.  I know there were discussions on here a few years ago about lab-diamonds, and as far as I knew, they did not exist in large enough sizes to be sold for jewelry, like you said.  It is nice to get some clarification.  I knew they were made for industrial purposes.  I think lab diamonds would be GREAT! 

Darling Husband and I are actually bench certified, trained jewelers with degrees in the field, and as far as we knew there were not lab-created diamonds for sale to be used in jewelry (a few years ago).  Some people really got heated a few years ago when I said that.  I just was never able to find any, and the jewelers I knew didn’t know about any either.  So maybe it really is a more recent development, that they are now becoming available for sale for our sparkly jewels 😉

Thanks for posting this RayKay! I really really wish they had announced this just a few months before they did… I would have jumped on one of these.

I’ve been looking at diamonds for my ring for several months with my partner’s input, and we’ve agreed that we both prefer the ethical and environmentally sustainable nature of lab-created diamonds. Plus we think science is pretty cool and it’s amazing the things technology can do! When I first started looking in January 2012, Gemesis was the only real name out there for white/colourless lab-grown diamonds, and they weren’t selling them at that time. In March their online store went live, and not long after I discovered three more sources of lab-created diamonds. Be sure to check them all out, because there’s a fair amount of variation in stock and pricing right now: Gemesis http://gemesis.com, D.NEA Diamonds http://d.neadiamonds.com/lab-created-diamonds/White-Diamonds, Brilliant Earth http://www.brilliantearth.com/lab-created-diamonds/, and Chatham (which isn’t selling online but lists its stores) http://chatham.com/.

I haven’t made my choice yet but I plan to very soon!

Just to follow up as promised, here is a pic of Mr. Sparkles in all his glory! I ended up buying the diamond from D.NEA; they had the best colour compared to the other sites I listed above. This guy is 0.54ct, F, VVS1 and Very Good, according to GIA. We had it mounted at a local jewellery store and when I checked the loose diamonds on their site, they were charging a third more for an equivalent stone. I’m very happy with it!
