Beauty Meets Sustainability
While 99 percent of the diamonds we sell are natural, Bailey’s also offers a collection of lab-grown diamonds. These pieces are eco-friendly and 20 to 40 percent less expensive than a natural diamond. Plus, they look identical to their earth-mined counterparts.
- They’re socially responsible –An eco-friendly choice, grown diamonds are harvested responsibly, created in a controlled lab that abides by ethical principles and doesn’t harm the environment or individuals around it.
- They’re budget friendly – Lab grown diamonds are 20 to 40 percent less expensive than naturally mined diamonds, making these an excellent option for those who are planning their wedding on a budget.
- They’re better for the environment – The process for naturally mining diamonds is 7 times harsher on the environment than lab-grown diamonds. Earth mining impacts the surrounding soil, air quality and water usage. Because grown diamonds are created in a lab, the environmental effects are mitigated.
- They’re identical in quality – The same high standards used to grade natural diamonds are implemented to assess lab-grown diamonds as well. In fact, man made diamonds possess the same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds—the difference is indistinguishable even under a microscope.
Natural diamonds are formed beneath the earth’s crust resulting from extreme pressure over millions of years.
Lab-created diamonds start with a small diamond seed placed in a sophisticated pressure chamber containing carbon. By recreating the intense heat and pressure of the earth’s crust, the diamond grows layer by layer. Approximately 10 to 12 weeks later a diamond is formed.
