Why should I buy my lab diamond ring from a UK based company like Novita Diamonds?

The primary advantages we offer are exceptional service and competitive pricing. For instance, we provide a complimentary free resize with every engagement ring purchase. Buying a ring from overseas can lead to complications such as resizing issues, with the hassle of sending the ring back and forth, dealing with taxes, import duties, extensive paperwork, shipping costs, and long wait times. Moreover, VAT and import duties apply when importing a ring into the UK. Conversely, purchasing locally from us in the UK offers the reassurance of being able to contact us or visit anytime, an assurance only buying locally in the UK can provide.
An important note: choosing Novita Diamonds means unparalleled access not only to our UK locations but also to our global network. As the world's largest retailer of lab grown diamonds, Novita Diamonds is a leader in the field.

What are the main reason people are choosing man made diamonds in UK?

The key reasons people in the UK are choosing man made diamonds include:

  1. PRICE - Our competitively priced lab created diamonds in the UK make it possible for you to acquire the diamond ring of your dreams without overspending.
  2. IDENTICAL APPEARANCE - Lab grown diamonds aren't just visually similar to mined diamonds; they're also physically, chemically, and optically indistinguishable from them.
  3. ETHICAL SOURCING - We ensure that all our lab grown diamonds in the UK are ethical diamonds, meaning their production doesn't harm the environment. Besides being eco-conscious, they are also conflict-free, aligning with ethical standards.
  4. OUR DIAMONDS ARE REAL - Be wary of deceptions in the lab diamond engagement rings in UK and diamonds in general. Watch out for sellers using terms like 'synthetic diamonds', 'round brilliants', 'artificial diamonds', 'moissanite diamonds', 'cubic zirconia', 'crystals', and 'diamond simulants'. These terms can be misleading as they often refer to non-diamond materials. An engagement ring is a significant investment, so it's crucial to research, read reviews, and verify that you're purchasing a genuine diamond.
Note: The term 'synthetic diamonds UK' might refer to lab created diamonds, but some sellers use it to market cubic zirconia. For more information, our blog features articles by expert gemmologists and master jewellers in the UK, providing valuable insights into this matter.

Why should I buy a lab created diamond?

Most customers choose lab diamonds over mined diamonds primarily for three reasons. The first is the considerable cost savings, about 75-80%, which is substantial regardless of one's financial status. The second reason is their sustainable and ethical nature, and the third is their identical visual and chemical properties to mined diamonds. These factors make purchasing a man made diamond an obvious and sensible choice.

• Are Lab Grown Diamonds Real?

Yes, lab grown diamonds are indeed real diamonds. They are created through the same chemical and physical processes that occur naturally inside the Earth, but in a controlled laboratory setting. A starter seed of a diamond crystal is gradually enlarged by depositing more carbon atoms on it. Lab made diamonds are chemically, physically, and optically identical to natural diamonds and are scientifically validated as real diamonds. Renowned diamond authorities like IGI and GIA grade man made diamonds using the same criteria as they do for mined diamonds.

• How Much Can You Save with a Lab Diamond?

The cost of lab created diamonds is significantly lower than that of mined diamonds. The exact price difference varies based on factors like size, quality, and type, but on average, lab diamonds are about 75% less expensive. This is primarily because the cost of producing rough lab diamonds is much lower than extracting natural diamonds. However, the subsequent processes such as cutting, polishing, certification, shipping, and insurance are the same for both. For example, a £10,000 mined diamond could cost around £2,500 if it’s lab grown.

• Do Lab Diamonds Test as Real Diamonds?

Yes, lab diamonds test as real diamonds. Using a diamond tester, lab created diamonds will show the same properties and characteristics as natural diamonds due to their identical chemical, physical, and optical makeup. This includes hardness, refractive index, and thermal conductivity and other properties that are unique to only diamonds, both mined and man made.

• Do Lab Grown Diamonds Have Inclusions?

Like natural diamonds, most lab diamonds also contain inclusions which we explore in our lab diamonds guide. These are natural imperfections found within diamonds, regardless of their origin. Inclusions can vary, such as tiny bubbles or carbon deposits. It's rare for any diamond, lab grown or natural, to be completely flawless. Our 4Cs guide offers more insights on diamond colour, clarity, cut, and carat.

• Can Lab Diamonds Be Insured?

Absolutely, all lab grown engagement rings and jewellery can be insured. Since lab created diamonds are considered real diamonds, they can be insured in the same way as mined diamonds. Insurance policies for jewellery can vary, typically covering replacement or repair costs in cases of loss, theft, or damage. It’s crucial to thoroughly understand the terms of your insurance policy, and our lab diamond rings guide provides more comprehensive information.
