Have you heard?

One of MiaDonna’s labs has grown the WORLD’S LARGEST LAB-CREATED DIAMOND!

Lets GET TO KNOW this 10.02ct beauty!

  • 10.02ct square emerald cut lab-created diamond
  • The diamond was cut from a 32.26ct of man-made rough diamond – taking less than 300 hours to perfect
  • Type IIa diamond, VS1 clarity, E color, Very Good cut and Excellent finish – as graded by IGI Hong Kong

According to Marc Brauner, co-CEO of IGI Worldwide – This diamond is unique in all aspects, and that the science and technology behind the processes synthesizing this stone are significantly more advanced than other man-made diamonds currently on the market. The stone’s large size, in combination with the very high color and breathtaking brilliance, will ensure it a prominent place among the pioneers in the diamond industry. 

 

RECORD BREAKING!

World’s Largest Lab-Created Diamond

 

MiaDonna’s Founder, Anna-Mieke Anderson, shared with us her thoughts about the recent technology advances in diamond science…

“I started in this industry when the technology to get lab-created diamonds in gem quality was in its infancy. In 2005 we were creating diamonds in yellow/orange colors and in very small sizes. Now only a decade later our labs are creating 32ct colorless rough diamonds. I knew we would get there [we have come further in the last decade than we have in the last century] and this is a real game changer.”

This lab-created diamond achievement follows only two months after the IGI certified a 5.0ct radiant brilliant and 4.0ct cushion brilliant; both believed then to be the world’s largest lab-created diamonds in existence. HOWEVER, the ever-increasing speed of the diamond technology evolution has proven differently.

“I have always been passionate about lab-created diamonds as they represent a cleaner, greener diamond culture. It’s an exciting time …Our labs are creating the largest and best quality diamonds known to man. We can’t wait to see what’s next!”

~ Anna-Mieke Anderson, MiaDonna Founder and CEO

Wedding Bands – The Perfect Match

Exchanged while saying your vows and worn to show your love and commitment to your partner – Wedding bands play a major role on your big day and everyday there after. 

Lab-Created Diamond Wedding Bands - The Perfect Match | The Alice Wedding Set

When it comes to selecting wedding bands, there are a few things to think about…

Some engagement rings have matching wedding bands and come as bridal sets, while others can be mixed and matched. 

Your engagement ring’s perfect wedding band match could be straight fit with the same details, contour fit so it swoops and hugs the engagement ring or a ‘puzzle fit’ where it is notched or crafted to sit perfectly up against the engagement ring.

Whatever your personal preference, MiaDonna has ‘The Perfect Match’ for you!

Wedding Bands – Did you know?

The tradition of wearing the wedding band (and engagement ring) on the fourth finger of your left hand can be traced to the Egyptians, who believed the vena amoris (vein of love) ran directly from the heart to the top of this finger. 

Lab-Created Diamond Wedding Bands - The Perfect Match | The Honey Wedding Set

Wedding Bands – Current trends

While an engagement ring and wedding band are the hallmark for wedding sets – there are new trends being seen around the globe, like in Europe many couples are choosing to throw out tradition and are wearing their Wedding Bands on their right ring finger. 

Whether a perfect match or mixed up for style, one trend we love for both its symbolism and look is Three Rings…one for engagement, one for marriage and one for motherhood.

Put A Lab-Created Diamond Ring on It by Anna-Mieke Anderson

MiaDonna and The Greener Diamond founder, Anna-Mieke Anderson wrote this fantastic article for betterdiamondinitiative.org. It’s all about consumer choice and how you can make a difference just by choosing a conflict-free lab-created diamond for your engagement ring.

If you are looking to get engaged Anna-Mieke’s article is…

 

A Definite Must Read!

 


 

PUT A LAB-CREATED DIAMOND RING ON IT

by Anna-Mieke Anderson, betterdiamondinitiative.org

 

Put a Lab-Created Diamond Ring on It | Anna-Mieke Anderson | MiaDonna

I love the beauty of diamonds. I love their sparkle and the dreams they represent, but at what cost? When I researched and learnt the truth behind the origin of my own earth-mined diamond, and what really goes into bringing earth-mined diamonds to market, I discovered a living nightmare that was beyond anything imaginable. I knew there had to be a better way, so I began my search for a conflict-free diamond. I soon learnt the only diamond that was truly conflict-free, for both the earth and humanity, was a man-made option. I also discovered that I was not the only one in search of an ethically produced diamond.

A new breed of buyer is on the rise the source-informed consumer. These shoppers are the market mavens, passionate about where their products originate from and the trade ethics behind products in the marketplace. And the good news is their numbers are growing.

Fortunately for the diamond consumer, there is now a new era in the diamond industry. MiaDonna & Company, D.NEA, and Pure Grown Diamonds are pioneering the jewelry industry, selling eco-friendly, Lab-created diamonds (also known as man-made diamonds) that are conflict-free, chemically and optically identical to earth-mined diamonds, and roughly 10% to 30% less than an equivalent earth-mined diamond.

Here are a few reasons why I love Lab-created diamonds:

1) We know their origin.

Unlike earth-mined diamonds, lab-created diamonds and gems are created in a modern-day lab environmentthat is highly controlled and held to a high work standards” – making these diamonds the only diamonds that are not negatively affecting aboriginal communities or the earth.

2) Lab-created diamonds are superior to most earth-mined diamonds on the market.

Most diamond consumers do not realize that there is more to a diamonds quality than the 4Cs. There are also diamond types, which is a method of scientifically classifying diamonds by the level and type of their chemical impurities. Diamonds are separated into four types: Type Ia, Type Ib, Type IIa, and Type IIb. Most of the diamonds you see in a typical jewelry store are a Type Ia. These diamonds make up for about 98% of all earth-mined diamonds and are less expensive but have more impurities. Type IIa Diamonds on the other hand, are superior with only 1% to 2% of all earth-mined diamonds being this type. These diamonds are very expensive and the most sought-after by collectors and investors. The reason why these stones are so exceptional is that they contain very little nitrogen or none at all within the crystal lattice, so they do not easily absorb short-wave light. The result is that light is easily able to pass through and bounce back at the beholders eye, producing a stunning appearance. Because they are almost pure carbon, white diamonds are remarkably colorless and harder than the regular Type Ia diamond. Modern technology is now allowing us to grow pure type IIa diamonds and they cost less than a type Ia, which is really impressive. The Hope diamond was Type IIa, Queen Elizabeth & Elizabeth Taylor have both owned rare, Type IIa diamonds and now you can be royalty too, with your Type IIa lab-created diamond.

3) Lab-created diamonds are better for your marriage.

A Diamond is Forever and other Fairy Tales economists, Andrew M. Francis and Hugo M. Mialon, surveyed 3,000 once or still married couples in the U.S. They found that when it comes to shopping around for engagement rings couples who spent more on a ring were 1.3 times likelier to get divorced. This is also true for the cost of the wedding. The result is a less expensive, superior lab-created diamond is better for your marriage. I feel it’s time to release ourselves from that 2 to 3 month salary rule and invest in our marriages instead.

4) Lab-created diamonds are the future!

It’s simply the evolution of a product and society. The diamond industry is using a century old marketing plan that we are all still buying into. However, consumers are now breaking free from old traditions, beliefs and an outdated way of doing things. They are driving the diamond market by demanding ethically produced diamonds lab-created diamonds.

5) Conflict Diamonds are still a real problem in today’s society.

In December 2000, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a landmark resolution supporting the creation of an international certification scheme for rough diamonds, to stem the flow of conflict diamonds, called The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS). The KPCS is open to all countries that are willing and able to implement its requirements, however, since not every trader is required to be a part of this agreement, a trading loophole exists that allows conflict or blood diamonds to seep into the market. From 2010 to 2014, it was estimated that over 48 million carats of diamonds, that were mined under horrific conditions, made their way onto the international diamond market. That is just from one country and the diamonds we know about! Although the Kimberley Process is a good idea in theory, it has proven time and time again that it just isn’t working.

Anna-Mieke Anderson, Sierra Leone Africa

Every time you spend a dollar, you’re investing money in your future. Your money goes to work in the world, but all too often it goes to support institutions and corporations that perpetuate injustice, pollute the environment and destroy communities – much without your knowledge. Despite that truth, we can create change. You can use your economic power to push for socially and environmentally responsible businesses and products; and put our global society on a more sustainable path. You can do all that by choosing to”Put a Lab-created Ring On It”!
