NewBorn Lab-Created Diamonds are engineered through a process that replicates the conditions under which a diamond can form. They are chemically, structurally, and visibly identical to geological diamonds mined from the earth. Yes, identical. Not even a jeweler can tell the difference.
In addition to our impressive earth-mined diamonds, Ramsey’s has the largest selection of lab-created diamonds in the South. They are certified and then handpicked by our expert gemologists.
The only jewelers with access to the biggest and best Lab-Created Diamonds for the best prices are the early adopters who believed in the vision of the scientists and made a financial commitment to support them.
Ramsey's has followed lab-created diamonds since 1970. Although it was a miraculous moment in science, the diamonds weren't beautiful... yet.
In January 2015, we finally experienced the great “aha” moment. Technology had advanced, and they were identical to the rarest, most coveted diamonds on Earth.
We believed in them, so we were among the first in the U.S. to partner and invest, ensuring that Ramsey's will always get first pick of the best diamonds they have.
Each NewBorn Lab-Created Diamond begins as the tiny seed of another diamond.
That seed is placed in a plasma chamber that replicates the environment in which mined diamonds form by crystallizing carbon into diamond. The result is a raw diamond that is then cut with the same methods and tools as mined diamonds.
NewBorn Lab-Created diamonds are not to be confused with diamond simulants. Diamond simulants, such as cubic zirconia and moissanite, do not have the same chemical and physical properties as diamonds and can be easily distinguished with the naked eye. They aren't made of diamond at all.
Because lab-created and geological diamonds are both true carbon with the same crystal structure, they have all the same properties, including the same hardness, brilliance, and scintillation, that make it impossible to distinguish them.
They are just diamonds formed above ground instead of below!
You can get ice from a frozen lake or from your freezer, but they are both just frozen water. One was caused by the earth’s natural conditions, and the other was assisted by technology. Lab-created diamonds can be understood in the same way.
A lab-created diamond is the result of a marriage between Technology and Talent, between Science and Sparkle.

There are different crystal structures among geological diamonds mined from the earth, and the most desirable structure is "Type IIa" because it is the rarest and purest.
Less than 2% of the geological diamonds that come from mines are Type IIa. 100% of NewBorn Lab-Created Diamonds are Type IIa.
Diamond Type is not to be confused with any of the Four Cs. NewBorn Lab-Created Diamonds can have the same clarity variation (inclusions) as earth-mined diamonds due to their individual growth patterns.
Type IIa diamonds can take a higher polish which makes them shine brighter.
Our NewBorn Lab-Created diamonds go straight from the scientists to our showcases, providing a more affordable option.
