Should I Buy a Lab-Grown Diamond?

Here at Jewelsmith, we started to see a rise in demand for lab-grown diamonds in 2019 and interest in these man-made gems has only increased since then. But many still wonder: what exactly are lab-grown diamonds and how do they differ from their natural counterparts? Below, we answer some of the commonly asked questions about lab-grown diamonds and try to dispel some myths surrounding these synthetic gemstones.

We loved our experience and got the most beautiful engagement and wedding rings made. We were so happy to work with Tiffany L. She was kind and knowledgeable.

Jewelsmith is incredible! They created the perfect custom engagement ring for my fiancé. Mary and Erin were wonderful to work with, and Patrick brought our vision to life. My fiancé loves her ring, and we couldn’t be happier. Can’t say enough good things about this team!

I purchased a loose diamond and brought it to Jewelsmith to help me design a custom engagement ring. The experience was phenomenal in all respects, and the end result is exactly what I had in mind. Thank you Mary!
