IT'S A NEW DAY FOR DIAMONDS

What are
Lab-Created
Diamonds?

Lab-created diamonds are an exceptional mix of master craftsmanship and science. In fact, they are created of the same material as natural diamonds which were formed in the Earth billions of years ago.

Zales' lab-created diamonds exhibit the same optical, chemical, and physical propeties as natural diamonds - the core differences are the time they took to form and their origin.
