Hi all,
Anyone know of retailers with good selections for green MRB lab diamonds?

I visited a couple sites online, but most of their selections were quite paltry and only coming in at Good to Very Good grades for things like symmetry, polish, etc. Looking for 0.7 to 1.5 carat options with Excellent gradings across the board.

USA sellers preferred, but might be willing to venture to foreign sources if the selection, quality, and pricing are favorable.

Haha I’ve already got my hands full with a newborn and a toddler. I should have specified small purchases lol but my point is I love them! They have great customer service and I’ve been super happy with them.

I'd be super interested to see what folks are calling "green"
It seems like it's an unobtainable color, unless it's blue green.
Same for yellow in Lab Grown Diamonds.......it seems far more of a challenge as compared with blue or pink

Yes, it sure is. Green lab diamonds are made by supposedly irradiating yellow diamonds in order to create different colors, such as purple or green. The problem is that there is no definitive way to know what the end result will be, in terms of color saturation, uniformity, and intensity.

My sister has been wanting a green diamond for some time now and she mentioned the possibility of looking at lab grown options, but I told her that her quest in that is likely to be just as arduous as trying to find a natural green diamond that meets her wants.

Figured I'd ask her and see what the more seasoned PS'ers and colored diamond aficionados could tell me.

Ouros Jewels on Etsy had a *really* nice green elongated cushion a week ago. I say really nice because of the color. It was a light army green. Not that “super saturated” at all. No hint of blue or “forest” green at all. It was so nice in fact that I, someone who detests the color green, was immediately tempted to buy. Nice cut too. But not MRB :( It sold in a hot jiffy. But maybe Vijay would be able to source another? He had a spectacular pink a few months ago. Also a great color and not too saturated.

This is not correct- and I can't blame you for posting it...there's so much misinformation out there.
Lab Grown Yellow diamonds are rare- mainly because they really don't have the process down to get consistent, non brassy orangy yellow colors.
IN Earth Mined Diamonds, Radiation is what causes the green- and it's an issue because GIA has trouble distinguishing stones that were exposed to radiation naturally, versus man-made. For this reason, a fair percentage of natural green diamonds get classified as "Undetermined" as opposed to "Natural". Cutters now need to submit the diamond in the rough so GIA can assess the origin of the radiation, but I digress....

It was a light army green.

Any chance of a screenshot? I've seen quite a few blue greens- and of course many pink lab grown diamonds...but I haven't seen pure green

I was just going by the info that I read in regards to synthetic/lab grown diamonds that are green.
Here are a couple of sites that I found in the past couple/few days that give their take about the creation process:

I was looking but I don’t have it :( it wasn’t a true green, it was probably a little yellow. But it was my favorite color green, as someone who hates green haha! Definitely not a “pure” green, but pretty enough for me!

AS a general rule: Sites that direct you toward specific sellers- or those that are advertising diamonds themselves need to be taken in context.....they're sales tools, as opposed to education sites.
This really does call the "information" posed as questionable.....

Understandable and in agreement

Hmmm, I had the impression that yellow was do-able even early on, and the challenge was getting them to be white. This article is from 2003: https://www.wired.com/2003/09/diamond/

Interesting..... I’d have to do some research about Gemisis and what happened there. Obviously they weren’t successful selling Lab Grown diamonds. It is true ( and possibly interesting) that synthetic diamonds have been produced since the ‘50’s for industrial purposes.
But coming back to the present: Based on personal experience, the vast majority of LG diamonds that are “off white” - JKLM colors are grey/brown. As opposed to leaning towards yellow.
Also based on personal experience- the process to turn them blue and pink is fairly well developed- there’s plenty of blues and pinks on the market. Yellow? Not so much and what I’ve seen personally was brassy and orangey yellow. Doesn’t mean they don’t exist.... but surely limited.
