"The diamonds of the future” is the ideology Swarovski is building their branding from. Most commonly associated with their long-standing history with crystals and fashion jewellery, this wonderful brand is taking a new approach to their associations.
A Lab Grown diamond from Swarovski “faithfully reflects that natural processes that occur in the formation of mined diamonds”, ensuring that these stones not only have the same makeup as a ‘natural’ diamond, but match and even surpass the beauty we’ve come to expect. After each diamond has formed, it is cut and polished by a Master Cutter in one of the six classic shapes (round brilliant, cushion, princess, oval, pear, and radiant cut), to reflect the quality standards this brand has set.
Afterwards, each Swarovski Created Diamond is hand-picked and graded by their gemologists “according to the diamond industry’s 4Cs, which relate to cut, color, clarity and carat weight”. Swarovski pride themselves on their high-level environmental, safety, and labor standards to ensure the wellbeing of their employees, the environment, and society “at its heart”.
The laboratory where the diamonds are created is “completely carbon neutral”, as the energy used to produce these stones gets recycled. To learn more, please visit the Swarovski website. This 1.38ct., round brilliant cut diamond is just that; a diamond. The expanse of the stone measures at 7.27 – 7.23 x 4.33mm and has qualities by gauge of SI-1 clarity, G near colourless, and Excellent cut.
Thanks to the Master Cutters that tend to these beauties, the polish and symmetry give this diamond an intense sparkle from the perfect facets. This stone also bears a laser inscription along the girdle of a serial number unique to each Lab Grown diamond. This inscription matches the in-depth documentation provided, and can be verified through the International Gemological Institute’s website (https://www.igi.org/reports/verify-your-report).
This stone is set in 14k white gold mount, with a high polished solitaire style band and a cushion shaped halo of diamonds. The sixteen stones that spotlight the centre stone have approximate measurements of 1.6mm., an approximate total weight of 0.29ct., and qualities by gauge of SI clarity, F-G colour, and Good to Very Good cut.
