Why Lauren B is the Best Place to Buy Lab-Grown Diamonds

If you’re considering buying a lab-grown diamond, customizing a lab-grown diamond engagement ring, or purchasing a lab-grown diamond wedding band, Lauren B is the best option out there!

All Stones are GIA Graded

All the natural and lab-grown diamonds in our inventory have been graded by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the largest and most respected institute in the world dedicated to the research and education of gemology. 

Other labs are less strict in their grading. For example, what another lab would consider an “F” color would actually be an “H” color by GIA standards. With the GIA, you know the exact quality you are getting and you can be sure you’re getting top-of-the-line diamonds.

With every engagement ring and/or diamond purchase, included is the stone’s GIA Report Check and Certification Number printed and enclosed in the shipment. To see the full report, simply enter your report number into the GIA database. There you will find an incredibly detailed analysis of your diamond.

Highest Quality Stones

It may seem hard to believe with 1000+ diamonds in our inventory, but each stone has been carefully handpicked based on cut and with a focus on color/clarity combinations. Furthermore, all of our diamonds are cut to maximize sparkle and brilliance, as well as face-up dimensions—you can be sure that the carat weight of your diamond is reflected more in its surface area than its depth.

The lowest color in our lab-grown diamond inventory is I Color and the lowest clarity is SI1. Alternatively, the lowest color/clarity combination in our inventory is a 2.32ct Antique Cushion with G Color/SI1 Clarity for $3,420. Not a bad deal!

Additionally, our LAB Ready Collection consists mostly of rings made with colorless diamonds (D-F). However, the lowest color diamond in the collection is an H Color Oval… but with VVS2 clarity!

On top of our LAB Ready Collection, we also have our LAB Wedding collection of wedding bands band entirely with lab-created diamonds. All the wedding bands in this collection are made with E-F color/VS clarity diamonds.

Large In-House Selection

At Lauren B, we are unique in that all the loose diamonds listed on our website are actually in our in-house inventory! Most other jewelers simply list diamonds on their website that belong to a third-party vendor.

Our inventory consists of a wide variety of lab-grown diamonds, varying in size from 1 carat to a whopping 12 carats, across all shapes! Not to mention, our inventory consists of specialty and antique cuts like the hybrid step-cut, antique cushions, and Old European rounds!

If you still can’t find the diamond of your dreams in our inventory of over 700+ loose stones, we work with top manufacturers to source the perfect center stone for you.
