At York Jewellers we want our diamonds to be affordable for all of our customers. A ‘York’ certified diamond is a stone that has been graded and selected by our in-house jewellers and gemologists.
‘GIA’ certified diamonds have been independently graded by the Gemological Institute of America. We have both diamond options on offer for many of our engagement rings so that they’re affordable to everyone.
To make your own cleaning solution at home, we recommend using warm water with a little bit of dishwashing liquid. Scrub the jewellery lightly with a soft toothbrush, before rinsing thoroughly and allowing to dry. This is suitable to clean most diamond and gemstone jewellery.

Lab Grown Diamond FAQs
Lab-Grown Diamonds are man-made, by simulating natural conditions of extreme heat and extreme pressure (HPHT). Both mined and lab-grown diamonds are identical in chemical, optical and physical composition.
Diamonds were first created in a lab in the 1950’s. However, they weren’t gem quality diamonds that could be used in jewellery. Over the past few decades, the process has been perfected, however only really since around early 2010 has it been possible to produce large, white, gem quality diamonds that meet or surpass natural diamonds in terms of desirability.
In one of the processes, the diamonds are created by replicating certain favourable conditions that naturally exist 87 to 118miles below the Earth’s surface in the mantle of the Earth.
A sliver of an existing high-quality diamond, otherwise known as a seed, is placed in an environment that contains a specific recipe of carbon compounds at great pressures and temperatures. This process is called HPHT and most created diamonds, even the CVD ones go through some kind of post treatment process with HPHT.
To the naked eye there is no difference between a mined and a created diamond. So that the customer may be well informed about their choices, we are bound by law and ethics to clearly disclose which diamonds are lab-grown or created.
Since these diamonds are created within a lab, using only a fraction of energy and ecological damage that otherwise goes into creating and subsequently extracting a diamond, they are certainly more environmentally sound.
Depending on the colour and size, it can take between 10 days to a month to create a HPHT diamond in a laboratory.
No, they’re not the same. Diamond-like materials like Cubic Zirconia and Moissanite are not diamonds, whereas lab-grown diamonds are an absolutely true diamond with a wide range of colour, clarity, carat and cut possibilities.
Lab-grown diamonds are graded with the same standards as mined diamonds and carry reports from the International Gem Institute (IGI). It’s probable that other grading laboratories will also certify created diamonds in the future.
Yes, each lab-grown diamond we sell over 0.50cts has a unique ID inscribed on the diamond itself. This information is detailed in your certificate so you can always identify your diamond.
Lab-grown diamonds are available at York as another choice for our customers. They provide you with an opportunity to purchase a larger, better quality diamond for the same price when comparing a lab-grown diamond to a mined diamond. They also become an option for the environmentally conscious consumer who wants a more “eco-friendly” choice.
