What is a lab-grown diamond?

Identical to its mined counterpart, a lab-grown diamond invigorates the same fire and brilliance you would expect to see in a natural diamond - except that it’s made using sustainable practices. Lab-grown diamonds are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using technology that duplicates the conditions in which diamonds naturally form under the Earth's crust. they are chemically, optically and atomically identical to mined diamonds except witha different origin story. We've replaced the mines with machines. Man made diamonds have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as mined diamonds. in fact most lab grown diamonds are type 2a, meaning they have the best structure to give the best shine. only less than 2% of all natural mined diamonds are type 2a as other elements get trapped in the carbon when they are crystalizing.

Why should you choose a lab-grown diamond?

  • It's conflict free.
  • Our diamonds don't create war, just love.
  • The process of lab-grown diamonds is not labour intensive.
  • The working conditions in a lab-grown diamond factory are conducive and healthy.
  • Lab-grown diamonds are better for the environment.
  • Laboratories use a fraction of the energy as compared to the energy used during mining
  • Lab-grown diamonds are far more affordable than natural diamonds.
  • At ROCKRUSH, we have no middlemen. This makes our lab-grown diamonds even more economical as compared to others.
  • Jewelry at ROCKRUSH is crafted from recycled metals to reduce the impact of mining.
  • Mining contaminates drinking water, can harm workers, generates tonnes of waste, leaves long-lasting scars on landscapes and affects communities. Which is why, recycling metals helps avoid these harmful repercussions and helps us give back to the society and the Earth at large.
  • Gold, platinum and palladium can be recycled several times without affecting the quality of the metal.
  • Mining Free

    Mining Free

    Lab-Grown Diamonds are a responsible choice given that no mining is required.

  • Beauty & Quality

    Man made diamonds have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as mined diamonds.

    Beauty & Quality
  • Value


    Lab created diamonds offer excellent value, and are slightly more affordable than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality.
