  • Can a jeweler tell if a diamond is lab-grown?

    A trained gemologist can tell the difference between a natural diamond and a lab-grown diamond using special equipment. At Shane Co. all our lab-grown diamonds are inscribed with “Shane Co. Lab-Grown,” which can be viewed with a loupe by a jeweler so they can easily differentiate them. Also, we always keep our lab-grown diamonds separate from our natural diamonds.

  • Do lab-grown diamonds hold value?

    Lab-grown diamonds are relatively new on the market, so there’s not a lot of historical data about their value. Unlike natural diamonds, they don’t have a track record of maintaining or increasing in value. That said, they’re a great option if you want to get a larger diamond for your budget.

  • Do lab-grown diamonds dull or yellow over time?

    No, just like natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds do not dull or yellow over time. That said, you’ll want to get regular cleanings to keep that sparkle.

  • How long do lab-grown diamonds last?

    Lab-grown diamonds last forever, and can be passed down from generation to generation just like natural diamonds.

  • Is a lab-grown diamond the same thing as cubic zirconia and moissanite?

    No. A lab-grown diamond has the same chemical makeup and appearance as a natural diamond, whereas cubic zirconia and moissanite do not.

  • Are lab-grown diamonds real?

    Yes! Lab-grown diamonds have the same chemical makeup as natural diamonds, only they’re made over weeks using advanced science and technology.

  • Where is the best place to buy LGD?

    The best place to buy a lab-grown diamond is at a reputable jeweler like Shane Co., that’s been in the diamond business for generations. Our long-standing knowledge of diamonds and our high standards mean we’re offering only the best lab-grown diamonds.

  • What are the best lab-grown diamonds?

    Like natural diamonds, lab-grown diamond quality varies greatly. At Shane Co., we hand-select each diamond, including our lab-grown diamonds, and work with vendors who have been perfecting the art and science of making lab-grown diamonds for years. In fact, we waited to sell lab-grown diamonds until we were able to source diamonds that could meet our superior standards for quality.

  • Do lab-grown diamonds look cheap?

    To the naked eye lab-grown diamonds look no different than natural diamonds. In fact, you can usually get a larger lab-grown diamond for your budget. So lab-grown diamonds might actually look more expensive, when really they’re not.

  • Are lab-grown diamonds tacky?

    This is a subjective question, but obviously we think the answer is no. Diamonds are a classic, versatile, gorgeous gemstone that can be passed down for generations, even if they’re lab-grown.

  • Are lab-grown diamonds worth anything?

    Prices and resale values may go down as manufacturing efficiencies continue but sentimental and personal value will never fade.

  • Can you tell the difference between a lab-grown diamond and a natural diamond?

    No, to the naked eye they look exactly the same. A trained professional has to use special equipment to tell the difference between lab-grown and natural diamonds. That said, at Shane Co. we inscribe all our lab-grown diamonds with “Shane Co. Lab-Grown,” which can be easily viewed under the magnification of a loupe.

Finding the right diamond

The measure of a diamond’s beauty is a well-executed cut. Using the 4Cs can help you find the perfect diamond. Carat: Carat is the unit of measurement for a diamond's weight. Rarity means larger diamonds of the same quality are worth more per carat. Clarity: Clarity refers to the purity of the diamond and assesses the number, size, relief, and position of inclusions and blemishes. Color: Color refers to the color within the diamond, not the reflected light. The less color there is, the higher the grade. Even the slightest hint can make a dramatic difference in value. Cut: Cut refers to a diamond's symmetry, proportions, and polish, which determine how the diamond’s facets interact with light. Shane Co.'s diamond buyers go to the stone cutters around the world and hand-pick diamonds with the most sparkle from within each grade for our stores and our website. Whatever diamond grade you choose, you will clearly see the difference in the way Shane Co. diamonds sparkle.

Can you buy loose diamonds?

Buying a loose diamond can offer many benefits. When you purchase a center diamond stone separately, you will be able to find a diamond that matches your desired specifications and quality characteristics. Once you find the perfect diamond, you can have it mounted on your chosen setting for a beautifully customized piece.
