I recently purchased a one carat oval lab diamond necklace from Vrai. I am very pleased with the emerald cut I purchased from them a few months ago, so thought I'd give oval a try. The certificate states it is a VS1, excellent cut, I in color. Sometimes it seems a bit warm to me but it doesn't bother me, especially since it's a necklace. Not sure what to make of the cut since this is my first oval, it is definitely sparkly and doesn't have a huge bowtie, so good enough for a necklace I think! Anyway, thought you all might want to check it out!

Here is my reset!
After months of research I decided to change my mined 3.43 carat L VS2 to a Lab grown diamond.
New center stone is touch bigger and a lot brighter! It is a 3.49 G VS2 and I couldn’t be happier with my final product!
I had become more and more sensitive to color especially at the side of diamond and disliked the slight yellow tinge of my L. I couldn’t justify the price difference to jump up to a G in a mined diamond so Lab grown was an awesome alternative.
I just adore my ring now.
here are a few pics with both indoor and outdoor lighting and side pic

Just received my 2.25 E SI1. She was an upgrade from my .70 mined engagement ring. I got the stone from Jared’s, but I haven’t been impressed with their settings so I’m looking for a new solitaire setting with dainty claw prongs. Open to suggestions! 946A4820-1D39-49B7-84EA-5609D7755FD5.jpeg

Newer member here :wavey: and just got these beauties in from JA. My first lab created purchase and so excited! I searched stones one by one until I found them. I think they are a pretty good match. I decided to go with .80/.81 cts F VS1 so I can wear them everyday and plan to get some earring jackets to match my recently upgraded e-ring to wear on special occasions. Also, are HPHT's just as good or better than CVD? Didn't know anything about this before I bought them.

They are gorgeous and similar size to mine. I was also looking to get earring Jackets to wear with them for dressier occasions! Are you going to go with Natural Mined diamond earring jackets, or do you know vendors who are making earring jackets with MMD?

Also, I wasn't aware of what type of MMD my James Allen studs were until you posted the question about the HPHT vs CVD question...that is when I pulled out my certs, and realized that I have one that clearly states that it was produced by HPHT, the other doesn't say either way....but under comments, it says "Blue Nuance" so I'm assuming both are HPHT!

Thanks. And I love your avatar ring! I can only find natural mined diamond earring jackets available from the reputable online vendors recommended by PS'ers and only see the MMD ones on sites like ebay. JA unfortunately does not carry earring jackets but WF and IDJ do, so I will most likely go with one of them. If anyone else has any recommendations, let me know.

I have IDJ jackets that I got years ago when they were super popular here. They are beautiful, well made and the diamonds are high quality. I highly recommend.

Thanks. That is who I am leaning towards. I tried emailing Yekutiel but comes back undeliverable. Do you (or anyone else) happen to have his contact info that you can message to me?

Hi All,

I'm new here. This is my e-ring and band. My husband and I were married in February of this year and we both got custom rings. Mine is:

2.12 ct, G color, SI1, IGI cert LGD from Clean Origin.

The custom setting is from a local jeweler, 1.75ctw natural diamonds set in 14k white gold.

I could not be happier with the detail!

Hi! I wanted to share my first piece of lab grown diamonds. My hubby surprised me with this beautiful 1.5 CTW band from James Allen as an early Mother’s Day gift. I’m in love and looking forward to upgrading my mined 1ct diamond engagement ring to a lab diamond. I can’t take my eyes off of it

Oh, that's lovely!

I've been seriously eyeing their 0.5ct or 0.75ct version of the 7-stone lab band, too! It's really an unbeatable deal.

Wow, I for one LOVE that cut! It looks crystal clear and I love the faceting. Fabulous!

Beautiful! Is this a 7-stone? And would you mind sharing your finger size?
