Our Diamonds

The diamond is more than just aesthetically beautiful—it’s an enduring symbol of love, romance, commitment, responsibility, status and opulence.

 In the realm of eternal love and everlasting beauty, a captivating story unfolds—one that bridges the celestial and the earthly, the ethereal and the tangible. This narrative weaves together the histories of Moissanite and lab-grown diamonds, two gems that have etched their mark in the hearts of romantics and conscientious souls alike.

The saga begins with Moissanite, a gem whose origins trace back to the stars themselves. Picture a meteor crater, a scene of cosmic poetry, where a French chemist named Henri Moissan uncovered sparkling treasures in 1893. Mistaken for diamonds at first glance, these gems were soon revealed to be silicon carbide crystals, igniting a cosmic connection that resonates to this day. Named in honour of its discoverer, Moissanite is more than just a gem; it's a piece of the cosmos, a distant star's luminous legacy, captured and immortalized in a stone. This celestial origin story sets Moissanite apart as a symbol of love that transcends space and time, a gem that whispers of stellar romances and cosmic unions.

But as stars paint tales in the heavens, our own planet holds secrets waiting to be unearthed. Enter lab-grown diamonds, an embodiment of love and science converging in an alchemical dance. These diamonds are not born of millennia-long geological processes, but rather nurtured in controlled environments, their growth guided by human hands and scientific precision. This narrative of creation speaks to the boundless ingenuity of love—how it can bloom under the watchful gaze of innovation. Lab-grown diamonds echo the timelessness of natural diamonds while embracing a future rooted in ethical, sustainable practices.

As the romantic heart intertwines with environmental consciousness, these gems take on a deeper allure. The enchantment of Moissanite and lab-grown diamonds lies not only in their origin stories, but also in the principles they uphold. Ethical concerns often cloud the splendour of traditional diamonds, tarnishing their brilliance with tales of human suffering and environmental devastation. Moissanite and lab-grown diamonds emerge as radiant alternatives, reflecting the light of ethical awareness and compassionate choices.

Picture a love story adorned with stones that embody not just eternal beauty, but also a commitment to the world we cherish. Moissanite, born from the embrace of distant stars, brings a touch of the universe to your beloved's finger. Lab-grown diamonds, nurtured in labs that echo the tenderness of love's cultivation, tell a story of responsibility and hope for a better future.

In an age where love's journey intertwines with ethical considerations, Moissanite and lab-grown diamonds stand as beacons of romance and responsibility. They are gems that transcend the ordinary, inviting us to celebrate love that is as infinite as the cosmos and as enduring as the Earth. As we gaze upon these gems, we're reminded that love, like the universe itself, is a radiant and wondrous tapestry woven from stars and stardust, from hearts and dreams.

I had no idea these diamonds were so popular in the diamond market. Thank you for sharing this important information! Let’s hope one day mining diamonds is no longer in operation and more sustainable diamonds take reign.

Sensational. I read this blog 3 times before commenting. Your diamond pieces are stunning and for them to be ethical diamonds makes them much more beautiful.

Omg who wrote this? As someone who works in the field, I am very familiar with the history of moissanite and lab grown diamonds but never have I read an article which describes it like this. What an incredibly entertaining and deep read.

This blog alone motivated me to purchase my first diamond piece from EY and it did not disappoint. Both the blog and my bracelet are sensational.
