Let's face it, good quality wedding rings are extremely pricey. However, with the rise of cultured diamonds, you will still be able to flaunt a beautiful diamond on your finger at a far lesser price!
But what exactly are cultured diamonds and why are they so popular? The experts at Shiny Rock Polished share their knowledge with us on cultured diamonds and the jewelry industry.
Cultured diamonds, also known as lab-grown or man-made diamonds, are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments that simulate the Earth’s natural growing process, above ground.
You can now own a unique and exquisite stone which is grown in a laboratory and not worry about its origins. Shiny Rock Polished pride themselves on being the leading cultured diamond supplier and retailer in South Africa. Available in a rainbow of vivid colours from classic white to pinks, yellows and blues.
If you're an eco-warrior bride, a cultured diamond is exactly what you should be after as they're considered to be more environmentally friendly and socially conscious. Cultured diamonds are grown above ground, however they have exactly the same properties as a mined diamond and are still considered a highly luxurious item.
The rightful trend of being more environmentally conscious is gaining a high level of momentum and diamond manufacturing is at the forefront of this movement with De Beers' recent announcement that they, too, will be setting up their own synthetic diamond production.
On a price scale, manufactured diamonds are generally more affordable. Besides the cost benefit, buyers are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing from an array of vivid colours including beautiful blues, pink and yellow.
