Our Most Popular Lab Created Diamond Engagement Rings

Lab created diamonds are becoming an increasingly popular choice when it comes to engagement rings. Not only are they sought after for their beauty, but they also make for a responsible choice given that no mining is required. They’re often more affordable than natural mined diamonds of comparable size.

Lab diamonds are man-made diamonds that consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. We often get asked, “do lab diamonds look different than natural diamonds?” To answer that question, lab grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds. This means that lab diamond engagement rings will look visually identical to rings set with mined diamonds — even experts will not be able to distinguish between a lab diamond ring and natural diamond ring using only the naked eye.

Below are our most popular ring settings for lab created diamond engagement rings:

I love the look of a fancy cut diamond. So the Waverly design calls my name. My get it for my bday and size it for my middle finger. That way when I flip someone the bird the sparkle will blind them. LMFBAO

I prefer the Odessa, then the Willow n the last would be the Waverly. I feel that if you’ve found that special one of all time, then you should splurge and let her know just how Precious she is to you. They’re all very beautiful. I actually prefer a wider band, because they’re more comfortable and you can actually tell you’re wearing a ring. ItIt’s also better to wear a wider band if you have problems w/ your hands swelling alot.

I would chose the Waverly and or the Odessa because of their brilancy and detail. It is my plan to purchase one of these diamond rings after I win the PCH sweepstakes?
