I have been looking for an organic / ground-grown diamond for the past few months to suggest my boyfriend. She recently suggested to me that her perfect ring would have a lab-grown diamond instead of a traditional organic diamond for the sake of ethics and her distrust of diamond mining workers. I argued with her that I thought a traditional organic diamond might have better value, but that she didn’t want it.
That said, everything I know about researching diamonds for the past 6 months has been about organic diamonds, and I feel like starting from scratch. Can anyone give me some advice or help me find a good lab grown alternative?
I am looking for a round stone with clarity, very good or larger cut and good color for about 5-6k.
