Origin Matters: Rest Assured with Lab Diamonds

You're a conscious consumer. You care about the working conditions and environmental consequences. You seek out food, clothes, and electronics that are sustainable, fair trade, and known origin. Why should fine jewelry be any different?

Ada's laboratory-grown diamonds are guaranteed to be of known origin, sustainably grown in state-of-the-art facilities operated by well-compensated employees. Ada Diamonds knows exactly when, where, and how each of our diamonds were grown.

In stark contrast, it is virtually impossible to know when or where a mined diamond was extracted from the Earth. As such, it is not possible to know the true social and environmental consequences of a mined diamond.

Ada's founders refused to settle for an unknown origin diamond engagement ring and founded Ada Diamonds to help others build compelling, ethical jewelry that brightens the world.

Human Rights Matter: Diamonds Shouldn't Harm Communities

Human Rights Matter: Diamonds Shouldn't Harm Communities

If you work at a jewelry store, there is one question you fear above all: "Where do your diamonds come from?"

Why? Most jewelers don't have a clue where their diamonds came from. If pressed, most jewelers will give a vague answer and try to quickly change the subject.

What about the Kimberley Process? That stopped blood diamonds decades ago, correct? In a word, no. The Kimberley Process is quite narrow in scope, only banning diamonds from countries with active insurgencies.

By refusing to use mined diamonds in our jewelry, we can guarantee that all the diamonds we offer are conflict-free and in no way connected to the dubious diamond trade that continues to flourish to this day.


The Environment Matters: Diamonds Shouldn't Cost the Earth

The Environment Matters: Diamonds Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Mining diamonds is the definition of unsustainable. The extraction of diamonds is fossil fuel intensive, environmentally damaging, and becoming less efficient every year.

In stark contrast to mined diamonds, lab created diamonds are sustainable, vegan, and eco-friendly. How can we make these claims? The growth of diamonds only requires two main ingredients: carbon & electricity.

Today, the most efficient diamond producers require approximately 250kWh of electricity to grow a 1 carat diamond, which is the roughly the same amount of electricity the average US household consumes in a week. Furthermore, diamonds can be grown wherever renewable energy is available.

Progress Matters: Diamonds Should Brighten Our Future

The lab diamond market primarily exists to create high-tech uses for lab diamonds such as laser lenses, surgical knives, high pressure anvils, and water purification systems.

Earth-extracted diamonds are not suitable for these applications; the only option is lab grown, which continue to have high research and development costs.

When you purchase lab diamond jewelry, you are directly funding research & development of functional uses of diamond that improve humanity.

Quality Matters: Diamonds as Pure as Your Love

All of Ada's diamonds are classified as Type IIa, a purity level found in less than 2% of mined diamonds. Type IIa diamonds are the most valued and the purest type of diamonds in the world.

They contain little to no nitrogen atoms in the crystal structure. Some notable examples of Type IIa natural diamonds include the Cullinan diamonds, the DeBeers Millenium Star, and the Hope Diamond.

Due to the absence of nitrogen during the growth of white diamonds, all of Ada's white diamonds are considered Type IIa.
