Lab-grown diamonds in rainbow colors

Do you remember when our friends at Diamond DNA had us grade that incredible 10-carat lab-grown diamond transformed from intense yellow to vivid pink using an electron beam? This time they have delivered an amazing array of adamantine eye-candy.

A series of scintillating LG diamond rainbows

If one picture is worth 1,000 words we invite you to enjoy this prismatic, scintillating 9,000-word visual journey ahead. It seems appropriate to take our first steps with reflective, thematic words from the incomparable William Wordsworth.

My heart leaps up when I behold
– A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
– Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.

Many thanks to Ben Hakman and Diamond DNA for this scintillating collection of images.

    I recently purchased a diamond/sapphire ring, both stones lab grown. I took the ring to be appraised. Two separate appraisers said it was “worthless” and “had no value except for the cost of labor that went into making it.”

    I’m confused b/c I had read that lab grown stones, though not as valuable as natural, did have value 1/3 to 1/2 of a natural stone. What’s the truth?
