Lab-Grown Diamonds

Just a Diamond minus the mining.

Our diamonds are sustainably grown in laboratories. This means that we say no to Environmental Pollution, Wildlife Displacement, Groundwater Pollution, Deforestation, Cartel Pricing, Child Labor, and Displacement of Local Communities.

Real Diamonds

Our diamonds grown in laboratories that are mimicking the natural growing process of a mined diamond. The idea is similar to planting a tree in a greenhouse versus foraging it from the woods. Just a Diamond minus the mining.

Just like mined diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are made up of one single element – carbon. They’re exactly the same thing. According to the Federal Trade Commission in the U.S., lab-grown diamonds are chemically optically and physically identical to mined diamonds.

Growing Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds grow inside a lab using modern technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process. The process starts by cutting a small piece of carbon of pre-existing diamonds, a “seed”, which is then placed in a sealed chamber heated up to temperatures as high as the sun's outer layer; growing the diamond atom by atom until a rough diamond is formed, identical to what comes out from a mine. It takes approximately 6 to 12 weeks to grow a diamond.

World Positive

There are many reasons why lab-grown diamonds are a better option than those mined from the earth. Lab-grown diamonds are just as real as mined diamonds, but they do much less harm on our planet, being environmentally friendly, non-conflict-financed, produced under controlled working conditions, and more affordable.

At Akind, we don’t see the point in destroying our nature by extracting something from underground that today's modern technology can create in laboratories without the human and environmental toll.


Meet one of our Diamond Suppliers

We partnered with San Francisco-based Diamond Foundry. Backed by Leonardo Di Caprio, their diamonds have impeccable provenance and no human or environmental toll. Utilizing renewable energy, Diamond Foundry is the world's first certified carbon neutral diamond producer.

The 5c's of Diamonds

At Akind, we determine the quality of diamonds with 5C’s. While the 4Cs – color, clarity, cut and carat – are the general factors to describe and classify diamonds, the 5th C, Consciousness is the most important to Akind and a testament to our commitment to sustainability.
