Give it to me straight - are lab diamonds real diamonds?

Lab diamonds are real diamonds. Kimaï diamonds are identical in chemical composition to mined diamonds, only they’re made using solar energy in a lab. All that’s different between lab and mined diamonds is the impact our lab diamonds have socially and ecologically – which is significantly less.

How are Kimaï diamonds made?

Visit our diamonds to learn about the process.

Can you tell the difference between a lab grown diamond and mined diamond?

Lab grown diamonds are chemically and physically identical to mined diamonds - a gemologist wouldn't be able to tell them apart at a naked eye or even a microscope. Only specific machines can differ a lab grown diamond to a mined one.

Are lab grown diamonds GIA, HRD or IGI certified?

Yes, ​GIA, HRD, and IGI all grade lab grown diamonds. At Kimaï, we mostly use IGI grading reports but upon request we can get larger stones a GIA or HRD certificate. All our pieces that are above 0.5ct come with one of these certificates.

Do Lab created diamonds sparkle?

Lab diamonds do sparkle! As much as a mined diamonds. The sparkle of a diamond will always depends on the stone’s characteristics such as clarity, cut and polish, and lab diamonds are no different. Since the physical characteristics of a mined and lab diamond are not different, their sparkles isn’t different either!

Do Lab created diamonds have flaws?

Lab grown diamonds are grown the same way as mined diamonds (but in a lab!) - therefore they have flaws just like mined ones. Each one of Kimaï’s lab diamonds is unique and has its own characteristics.
