Diamond Hybrid Beauty


All the beauty of an earth-mined diamond. VVS1 to VVS2 in clarity, D to F in color, and Very Good-Excellent Cut.

Diamond Hybrid Saved Earth


150+ tons of the earth (on average) is saved each month by customers choosing a Diamond Hybrid simulant over an earth-mined diamond.

Why Choose a Diamond Hybrid Simulant?


The Diamond Hybrid averages a D to F in color, VVS1 to VS2 in clarity and is cut using the AGS cutting scale of 1 or 2, otherwise described as an excellent to very good cut.

As a result, it is the most beautiful, realistic, natural looking diamond simulant ever created and compliments the finest earth-mined diamond jewelry superbly.



The Diamond Hybrid is created by placing a perfectly cut crystal core or substrate into a chamber of intense heat and pressure and infusing lab-created diamond crystals, or bonding them at a molecular level, into the outer layers of the crystal core. These Lab created diamond crystals stack up on the core and realign with each other. The finished product is a diamond infused simulant that has a non precious crystal core and a solid outer layer of lab-created diamond that will never wear off or detach from the core.

Hardness and Durability

The Diamond Hybrid has a hardness of 8.8, similar to a precious gem, like a Sapphire or Ruby, and should be treated with the same care. While it is incredibly hard, it is possible to accidentally damage as it is a simulant and NOT a diamond. Please click here to learn more about what a 8.8 hardness grade means. The Hybrid stone - because of its infused outer diamond layer - is also nearly two times harder than an ordinary CZ and will not absorb oils from the everyday use of soaps, lotions and/or beauty products.

The outer layer consisting of lab-created diamond is non-porous just like a natural diamond, so it will never cloud or discolor. Click here to learn more about cleaning and care.

Technology Verification

To add additional peace of mind, every Diamond Hybrid comes with an identification card from Global Gem Lab, a world renowned gemological laboratory. It includes a description of the technology and verifies that the Diamond Hybrid is created with an infusion of lab-created diamond.

    Diamond Hybrid Grading and Analysis

    MiaDonna uses the highly recognized Global Gemological Lab (GGL) located in California, USA. The GGL grades for many companies you've already heard of like Fred Meyer Jewelers, Kay Jewelers and Jared's. We are proud to offer our customers an unbiased opinion and grading of our Diamond Hybrid from an established company who is a leader in the diamond grading and appraisal industry.

    1. The GGL will grade the cut, clarity, color and carat size of the Diamond Hybrid and any other stones used in your setting. The grading card will also identify the precious metal used in creating your ring.
    2. The second piece verifies technology and states that the Diamond Hybrid is a diamond simulant with an infused outer layer of lab-created diamond.

    All Diamond Hybrids purchased from MiaDonna will automatically come with an Identification Card from the Global Gem Lab giving a brief statement about the technology used in creating the Diamond Hybrid. However, if you wish to have your finished piece sent to the lab for grading of the actual stones set in your ring simply add the Grading Card at checkout and we will ship your finished ring to the lab where every stone will be individually graded on its 4C's using the identical qualifiers used to grade earth-mined diamonds.
