THE SHANE CO. DIFFERENCE
Three different diamond shapes
• Lab-created diamonds are mass-produced in laboratories by machines.
• Lab-created diamonds are not rare and have no inherent value.
• Diamond substitutes, including simulants like cubic zirconia, historically don't hold their value over time.
• The Shane family is devoted to authenticity, transparency, integrity, uncompromising ethics.
• Shane Co. does not sell lab-created diamonds because they are contrary to all of our fundamental values.
