The Prestwick Place Lab-Grown Diamonds are in fact real diamonds and offer the same brilliance, sparkle, and shine of a natural, mined diamond.
Our Oval Cut Lab-Diamond is a beautifully faceted gem with round shaped edges on opposite ends of the stone. It's a perfect marriage between a radiant and round cut diamond.
A lab-grown diamond should be considered and treated just as a natural diamond would as it contains the exact same properties as naturally formed diamonds. The only thing that makes a lab-grown diamond different from a mined diamond is its origin.
A lab-grown diamond touches fewer hands, is conflict-free, they are less ecologically damaging than a mined diamond and they are 30% to 50% less expensive than their earth mined diamond equivalents.
Our Oval Cut Lab-Diamond is shape that looks perfect in both a modern or vintage setting.

Why VVS1? Many Lab-Grown Diamonds available to purchase in-store and online are typically supplied as a VS1 standard only. The Prestwick Lab-Grown Diamond is as a VVS1 standard.
The clarity difference between a VS1 and VVS1 lab-diamond is that a VS1 lab-diamond has a higher number of inclusions that affect the diamond's brilliance, appearance and durability. While the two may look identical without magnification, a VVS1 diamond is cleaner and has fewer blemishes. As a lifetime piece, we believe that the quality and clarity of your Lab-Diamond should not be overlooked.
Sitting comfortably in the top end of the clarity scale, The Prestwick Place VVS1 clarity Lab-Diamonds are two to three grades better than the average VS1 clarity selection for Lab-grown Diamonds.
Why D Colour? Diamond colour is typically graded on a scale descending from D, which means no hint of colour, to Z. A well-cut D colour lab-diamond has a bright, icy white appearance that looks stunningly beautiful. It is important to note that D colour diamonds are valuable because they are rare, and we believe in providing excellence over cutting corners when it comes to the colour of a Lab-grown diamond.
The Prestwick Moissanite is a lab-created stone, meaning it is both ethically and responsibly sourced.
