The Largest Laboratory-Grown-in-the-USA Diamond is officially for sale. Last year, MiaDonna unveiled the 6.28 carat grown diamond as part of their campaign focused on saving blood diamond war orphans through The Greener Diamond Foundation. This lab-created diamond is a true technological marvel and indistinguishable, even under a microscope, from a mined diamond. According to the Federal Trade Commission, lab-grown diamonds are chemically, optically and physically identical to earth-mined diamonds. The 6.28 carat, J-color, VS2 clarity, cushion-cut lab-grown diamond retails for $52,000. An identical earth-mined diamond can cost as much as $105,000, according to RapNet, the global diamond network. This is a huge saving at a critical time of the year when 25 percent of American proposals occur.
“As a company and industry we’ve come so far. When we started MiaDonna over a decade ago, we could only grow diamonds to up to a quarter carat in size and yellow in color,” said Anna-Mieke Anderson, MiaDonna & Company CEO. “I’m so excited that one of our customers will now be able to own and wear a true scientific breakthrough.”
