Lab Grown Diamonds

What if you could get a bigger diamond for the same price?

Lab grown diamonds are identical in their composition, as well as physical appearance, to mined diamonds. The highly efficient production process used to create these lab grown diamonds enables an average of about a 40-50% cost savings. Which, allows customers to purchase larger diamonds that sparkle more for a lower price.

  • Real lab-grown diamonds
  • Identical to mined diamonds
  • Gemologists can’t tell the difference
  • Save 40-50% (compared to regular mined diamonds)
  • Exceptionally high quality and purity

 

What is a lab grown diamond?

Lab Grown Diamonds are produced using a technological innovation that yields diamonds of exceptionally high quality and purity. Only the top two percent of mined diamonds can compare. They are identical in their composition, as well as their physical appearance, to mined diamonds. A gemologist cannot tell the difference between a Lab Grown Diamond and a mined diamond because there is no difference.

Why do lab created diamonds sparkle more?

Diamonds form naturally beneath the surface of the earth when a crystalline variety of carbon known as “graphite” is subjected to the right combination of pressure and heat. Recent breakthroughs and process improvements have allowed lab grown diamonds to achieve a higher quality (Type IIa Diamonds) than their mined counterparts.

What are Type IIa diamonds? A diamond’s composition is 99.95 percent carbon. The other 0.05 percent can include one or more trace elements, or impurities, which contain atoms that are not part of the diamond’s essential chemistry. Extremely rare in nature, Type IIa diamonds are almost, or entirely, devoid of impurities. They are considered to be the purest form of diamond known to man. Therefore this creates a diamond with superior brilliance, more scintillation and sparkle.

Ethically sourced, environmentally friendly and conflict free diamonds.

I love my recent purchase from Gems of La Costa!! I feel in love with a pair of rare pearl earrings, and just had to buy them. I get tons of compliments when I wear them. Chad, the owner, is wonderful to work with and so is his staff. His store and selection of jewelry is stunning!

Hands down, my favorite jeweler. I've bought several gifts here for my lady over the years. She has loved and been complimented by everything that's come out of this fine shop. Most recently, my fiancee and I showed up during the recent pandemic, as we were intending on a live webcast wedding and needed bands quickly. We were helped by Steve, who got us into just what we needed, and had it ready within days for the ceremony. Amazing products and service - I absolutely love it here.

If I could give Gems of La Costa a higher rating, I would. My fiancé and I had the best experience working with Steve and the whole team when creating my dream engagement ring.

We originally went in there for my fiancé but ended up designing the most beautiful ring I have ever seen. Everything from picking the center stone, to designing the band size and design, I got to create the ring I have always wanted.

So here is a run down of my experience:

When first going in, they were not pushy like 99.9% of Jewelry store. They welcomed you, asked if you had any questions, and let you roam without feeling any type of pressure to buy. Most jewelry stores I went too, I felt like I was being watched like a hawk and not able to really enjoy looking at what they had to offer. Gems of La Costa made me feel welcomed and gave me to freedom to look around without feel pressure to buy.

We then asked Steve (literally the MVP/best jeweler ever) for help with my fiancé and his ring size. He went above and beyond, making sure we tried EVERY option he had so we knew what size and width he would like.

Me being the person I am, I asked to try on a few rings for myself. I asked if he had different sizes/ shape diamonds for me to try on, just to see what I liked best on my hand. Steve came through once again and had every type of diamond shape and size for me to see. He spent so much time with us, answering any question I had. I tried on so many different ones and he was so patient with me. I truly felt like he cared and wanted to make sure I knew what I liked.

Again, not know how this whole thing works, I found out that jewelry store work with specific companies who sell diamonds separate from the ring and you order the diamond through that company. So Steve went on the website and gave us different options in different price ranges and told us which ever ones we were interested in, let him know and he will order them for me to try on. We ordered a couple and when they came in we went in to try them on and I found the PERFECT one.

He then explained to us how we could either customize my ring there or order and band and head that they would weld together. We chose to customize it and it was the best decision we ever made. Not only was it exciting because the idea of creating my own ring that no one will have is amazing. But the process was something I had never heard of before. They have specific technology at their store where they create a 3D rendering of what your ring will look like and print it using a 3D printer, then you can see what it’s going to look like before they create the actual ring.

Ewa, the one who you work with during this process, was the best! I wrote her so many emails, sent her so many pictures, and she was so kind and patient, making sure I got exactly what I wanted. She is a master of her craft, and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to create my ring. She is a GEM!

When I went in there to see the 3D rendering, I was blown away! It was everything I had wanted and more!!

From there, it was in Steve and my fiancé’s hands! They created my dream ring and when I finally saw the final product, it was better than I ever expected. They literally took the vision I had in my head and made it come to life.

While I didn’t work with them directly, Chad and the rest of the team were incredible as well. Not only is he one of the best in his field (I’m not kidding, he’s won so many awards and been honored for his work) he had the years of experience that make you feel confident that he is going to give you what you want. Everyone in that store is so invested in giving you your dream piece of jewelry and they will go above and beyond to do so.

I could not recommend Gems of La Costa more. There is no other jeweler I will put my trust into, and I won’t be going or recommending any other jeweler.

Thank you so much Steve, Ewa, Chad, and the whole team for being the absolute best, and making this experience one I will never forget!!
