Bejouled Ltd is making progress in becoming a more sustainable independent jewellery manufacturer. In 2019, we added the option of lab-grown diamonds for all of our bespoke pieces.
Lab grown diamonds are diamonds that have been grown in a controlled environment over a number of weeks. The chemical structure of these diamonds is exactly the same as natural grown diamonds which are mined from the ground. The lab mimics the exact conditions of how a natural diamond would be formed in nature by applying a mass amount of heat and pressure to a carbon seed. After applying this process over around four weeks a diamond is formed.
Lab grown diamonds are a new and exciting choice for those buying any diamond jewellery and engagement rings. The price of these diamonds can be up to 40% less than natural diamonds even though they are visibly and structurally indifferent.
The other key benefit is that the diamonds have a clear sourcing history and can be traced back to their original origin. Whereas, this is not the case for natural diamonds. Unfortunately, natural diamonds can often originate from mines with poor human welfare.
