We often get asked "Are lab grown diamonds less expensive than mined?" For the most part, the answer is yes! Ada Diamonds offers lab created diamonds at about a 30-40% discount compared to mined diamonds of the same quality.
Much like mined diamonds, lab grown diamonds are priced based on their quality characteristics and can vary dramatically in price. For simplicity, Ada has broken down these quality levels into four categories: Premium, Recommended, Satisfactory & Unexceptional (beneath Ada's standards). All of Ada's diamonds are optimized for cut and brightness, will be eye clean (no visible inclusions to the naked eye), absent fluorescence, and of exceptional quality.
Consider this general pricing ranges of Ada's three quality levels. This chart is for round brilliant, white diamonds. Fancy shaped diamonds and fancy colored diamonds of the same quality and carat weight can vary in price slightly.
All prices shown are in USD. If the perfect stone for you is not in our inventory, Ada can commission the growth, cutting, and polishing of diamonds to your desired specification. For 5+ct, please inquire.
Why We Don't Publicly List All of Our Diamonds
Ada chooses to not publish a list of our available inventory for a few reasons:
- We are diamond snobs. We refuse to offer our clients mediocre diamonds, ever.
- There are criteria beyond the 4 Cs that define the quality of a diamond, and our expert gemologists use that information to curate lists of beautiful diamonds for each client.
- Navigating through thousands of diamonds is a difficult, intimidating experience for someone without gemological training.
- We take pride in delivering superlative service to our clients. It is a sterile, suboptimal experience to choose a diamond from a spreadsheet. You deserve better.
Introducing Lab Diamond Jewelry
By re-creating the conditions of nature, we grow gemstones that are chemically and optically identical to natural diamonds.
Here at Ada Diamonds, we believe it matters where it comes from. Learn why the origin of your diamond should be front of mind.
