An Evolution Diamond is grown in highly-controlled laboratory conditions that simulate the exact conditions a mined diamond would undergo over thousands of years deep within the earth’s surface. To the naked eye, there is no difference between a mined and lab-grown diamond; and indeed, they are the same stone grown under different conditions and are identical in chemical, optical and physical composition.
Achieving diamonds of such beauty and authenticity calls for a carefully controlled environment of consistent heat and pressure, while the process of removing colour from each diamond – which results in a white stone of incredible clarity – takes time. The finesse and expertise required to create each Evolution diamond is what contributes to their limited availability.
Evolutions diamond are of a purity that only 2% of mined diamonds are classified. Their clarity is evaluated in the same-way as a mined diamond and each one is hand-cut to maximise its brilliance and colour by expert cutters. Every Evolution diamond comes with an individual grading report and is ethically grown with minimal environmental impact. We’d love to see you at our boutique store in Newcastle and let you experience all the beauty of Evolution.
“Our stunning Evolution Collection are true diamonds with all the sparkle, fire and brilliance of mined diamonds.”
