NATURAL VERSES CVD DIAMONDS
Natural, as the name suggests, are diamonds that are formed deep below the earth’s surface, they are miracles of nature. They are extremely durable; they don’t scratch or damage. A beautiful diamond ring is something you will always have, an heirloom to be passed down through generations.
We understand the ethical queries you may have. We only partner with companies who uphold the social responsibility of maintaining ethically sourced conflict-free diamonds. In a broader context, The Kimberley Process, (established in 2003 by the United Nations) was set up to stamp out the trade of conflict diamonds. This initiative is the beginning of more ethical practices.
Aubrey Gems initially only sold natural diamonds. But our opinion has changed based on the quality of synthetic diamonds that are now available. One of the more recent developments in lab techniques is CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) diamonds. The process for growing a diamond mimics nature, they are composed of pure crystalline carbon. CVD diamonds are atomically identical to mined diamonds, giving the appearance of a natural diamond, the only real difference between a natural or lab diamond is how they came into being. Because CVD diamonds are less costly to produce, they are not as expensive as natural diamonds and can offer a stunning alternative.
Regardless of which type of diamond you choose; we offer exceptional quality. Whether you decide on a natural or synthetic diamond, AUBREY offers GIA and IGI certification. All our rings are hallmarked, which is added certification of quality and, each ring is crafted by our makers with generations of experience.
All our jewellery is designed with forever in mind.
