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 Round Cut Lab-Diamond is a beautifully symmetrical stone with 57 facets that allow for nearly 100% light return. This means that round cut diamonds reflect virtually all the light that enters back to the viewer's eye. Such a high percentage of brilliance is not possible with any other diamond shape. Round diamond cuts are historically the most popular diamond cut. They have a classic, timeless look that truly pairs well with any style engagement ring setting.
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 Round Cut Lab-Diamond is shape that looks perfect in both a modern or vintage setting.

Why VS1? Many Lab-Grown Diamonds available to purchase in-store and online are typically supplied as a SI1 standard only. The Prestwick Lab-Grown Diamond is as a VS1 standard.
VS1 is a high clarity grade diamond with no eye-visible inclusions and only small, hard to identify inclusions. These diamonds represent the top 5% of all gem quality stones and are highly recommended as a blend of value and quality. VS1 graded diamond are very clear to the naked eye.
The Prestwick Place VS1 clarity Lab-Diamonds are two to three grades lower than our VVS1 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 Diamond is a lab-created stone, meaning it is both ethically and responsibly sourced.
