I don't have any health concerns regarding these diamonds being irradiated. I love that many of them have the gorgeous colors associated with natural colored gemstones with the added bonus of diamond durability.

I personally, don't care how the color is imparted into lab made stones, but based on the colors I typically see scrolling through different vendors, wouldn't purchase most of them based on personal preferences.

Brilliant Earth seems to have focused on a cheaper method, but this has started to produce the types of colors I don't prefer, especially in blues and pinks. I would rather have the grayer version.

But it's all personal preference.

Yes! the blue grey appears most like natural blue diamonds to me. Just like the Hope diamond.

resurfacing this topic again...

I noticed that the recent IGI reports in Brilliant Earth have "indications of post-growth treatment". Does this mean that IGI reports that do not carry that description mean that no irradiation is done?
