Swarovski Created Diamonds are identical in appearance to earth mined diamonds, possessing the same chemical composition, hardness, brilliance and fire. The only difference is that the origin is a lab and not the earth. Long known for producing the highest quality crystals, Swarovski now use their proprietary practices and precision cutting know how to offer an elite line of lab grown diamonds.
Building on the brand’s 125-year heritage of creativity, craftsmanship and innovation, Swarovski Created Diamonds bring you elite lab grown diamonds developed with excellence and luxury in mind. Every Swarovski Created Diamond is hand-selected and inspected to guarantee only the most beautiful and brilliant diamonds carry the Swarovski name.
Yes, they are. The only difference is Swarovski Created Diamonds are grown in a laboratory. Swarovski Created Diamonds are molecularly indistinguishable from natural diamonds. Possessing identical physical, chemical and optical attributes, they are created by utilizing the same heat and pressure necessary to form natural diamonds.
The process utilizes carbon atoms – also used to form natural diamonds – nurturing them into a raw diamond under conditions that perfectly emulate the natural environment. Once the stones are grown, they are further crafted by our Master Cutters, in precisely the same manner as natural diamonds are cut and finished, transforming them into objects of exquisite beauty.
Yes. Swarovski Created Diamonds weighing 0.50 carat and above are certified and accompanied by a report from an independent gemological institute. All Swarovski Created Diamonds are screened in-house by certified gemologists and, because every one of our synthetic diamonds is unique, they are all evaluated by the industry standard of the 4Cs: clarity, color, cut, and carat weight ensuring exceptional quality.
Swarovski has always been dedicated to a vision of responsible business, and the care of the environment. We are proud to offset the energy used to produce Swarovski Created Diamonds, making the process carbon neutral. All of our synthetic diamonds are created in adherence with high-level environmental, safety, and labor standards, ensuring our laboratory-grown diamonds have the exact same brilliance and beauty as natural diamonds, only with next-generation values.
Every Swarovski Created Diamonds, larger than 0.25 carat is marked with a microscopic laser engraving guaranteeing it as a Swarovski stone of outstanding perfection. This mark is visible only under strong magnification and identifies the synthetic diamond as a first-class authentic Swarovski Created Diamonds of extraordinary beauty.
There are two technologies to replicate the diamond formation process: HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition). HPHT simulates the conditions inside the earth’s crust and allows the growth of a laboratory-created diamond through intense heat of 2190–2730° Fahrenheit and high pressure. Inside the press the carbon atoms bond with the atoms of the seed, forming the diamond, atom by atom.
With CVD the laboratory-created diamond is grown in a vacuum chamber by adding methane and hydrogen at temperatures of 1290–1650° Fahrenheit. The carbon atoms are released from the methane molecules by a microwave plasma inside the growth chamber, adding to the diamond structure of the seed, atom by atom, to finally become a diamond grown in a laboratory.
