Ah, the colors in these are perfection to me! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

Me too!! It's living in my jeweller's vault now and I have a few weeks to decide on the final design.

Thank you. I'm definitely using brushed unplated white/beige gold and some polished plated white (prongs probably) to play around with the colour :D

I’d like to add Ketan from labgrowndiamondco (this is the ig name). I recently got a 1.2 oval VS2 from him that he set in an oval halo with baguette sides. He was great to work with and I have already began another project with him.

I think one PSer has brought a pink diamond ring from newworlddiamond.com.. Has anyone else tried them yet?

The ring I got for $3800 from Rare Caret 1215 (diamond from diamond foundry) is almost Identical to one listed on C and C Cadyia line for $13,800.

Dear all, any colored lab diamonds vendors to recommend aside from LightBox, Brilliant Earth and Diamonds by Lauren? No more New World Diamond, since their CS is terrible and is now blacked listed by me,

One for the aussies..


They have offices in a number of cities in AU + NZ.

I’m hoping to get into the ADL store soon to check them out.

Hi Adele,

I am also in Aus and was wondering if you have visited Novita in ADL or purchased from them?

I am looking for a small set of studs for a second piercing and thought I would go down this route as I find am increasingly curious about MMDs.

Any info on their quality/price etc would be appreciated. Thank you.

So, as we don’t have a sticky detailing potential vendors of MMDs / LGDs, I thought I’d make a thread :))


In terms of ‘Pricescope-recommended’ (i.e. ‘safe’ sellers) I think the following would be correct?

Brilliant Earth (BE)
https://www.brilliantearth.com/lab-diamonds-search/
Large range.

D.NEA
https://d.neadiamonds.com/lab-created-diamonds/
Quite a large range but more in smaller sizes. Some colours but mostly yellows.
@EEFranklin is the CEO.

Lightbox (LB)
http://lightboxjewelry.com/
https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/gia-examines-2-lightbox-de-beers-diamonds.246817/
$800/ct pricing. MRB + Princess. White, pink and blue. Limited stock that goes quickly in larger sizes. Only sold in Sterling Silver settings (I think).

August Vintage (AV)
https://www.augustvintageinc.com/collections/laboratory-grown-diamonds
Patented(?) Vintage cuts. Custom-cut stones. @Rhino at your service :))

Good Old Gold (GOG)
https://www.goodoldgold.com/lab_grown_diamonds
Mostly MRBs and Ovals. Fair range. Rhino used to work there.


I have also seen the following mentioned but I’m not sure if anyone has bought from them:

Takara
https://betterthandiamond.com/categories/Takara-Lab-Grown-Diamonds/
H&A / AGS000 Rounds. Blue and Pink Rounds. Limited sizes/stock.

Joseph Shubach
http://shopping.schubachstore.com/Diamonds-and-Gemstones
https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/custom-cut-old-cuts-from-joseph-schubach.247562/
Vintage cuts. Unusual cuts. Custom-cut stones. May not sell loose stones?

Mohr Creations
https://mohrcreations.jewelershowcase.com/lab-grown-diamonds/
Seem to have the same inventory list as Good Old Gold (so presumably virtual inventory) but at higher prices.


In addition to the above, @MelloYello8 also found/has mentioned some other sellers:

https://www.pricescope.com/communit...-best-price-on-a-1-carat.242966/#post-4396028

https://www.gemifique.com/pages/our-diamonds
I-J SI2-VS1 only. Doesn’t sell loose stones.

https://www.1215diamonds.com/
I can’t get the search tool to work (or no inventory is on the website). States a 10% restocking fee if loose diamonds are returned.

https://www.25karats.com/lab-diamonds-search
Fairly large range of MRBs. Search tool is failing for me but does have other shapes. No pictures or videos. Not sure about cut quality – lots of MRBs with 60%+ tables.

https://www.yadavjewelry.com/
Quite a large range of MRBs but limited other shapes. Not many with pictures/videos. Cut quality needs assessing for each stone.

https://www.miadonna.com/
I can’t get any inventory list to come up but it looks like they do a range of different cuts, including Hexagon:
https://www.miadonna.com/blogs/news/7-new-lab-grown-diamond-cuts

https://renaissancediamonds.com/
Quite a range of colours across MRBs and fancy shapes. I think prices might be high compared to other options?


Am I missing any?

I know that Robbins Bros has been mentioned as selling MMDs, but I thought we’d want to focus on good value offerings, rather than price-hiked B&M stores ;-) lol


Please add to the list or comment as necessary! :))

I’m so sorry this is so late!

I purchased a pair of Huggies from them, and I can’t complain. They’re beautiful - very sparkly. I’ve heard some interesting (aka not great) reviews re: craftsmanship, so I maybe wouldn’t make a major purchase through them.. but for a second pair of studs, I suspect they’d be just fine :)

No problem, thank you so much for your reply, I really appreciate it.

I am looking at their .5ctw studs which are less than $750, so very reasonably priced.

Their website states E/F colour and they will be worn with my 2ctw E colour studs (natural - GIA), so I’m hoping their colour grading is accurate. Website also states VS but clarity doesn’t really bother me given their size (my studs are SI2 but are eye clean).

I could go into their SYD store to purchase, but lockdowns have made me realise how much I dislike crowds =)2…..and they do have a return policy.

Thanks again, I would love to see your huggies…
