NewBorn Created Diamonds

NewBorn Created Diamonds™ are engineered through a process that replicates the conditions under which a diamond is born. They are chemically, structurally, and visibly identical to geological diamonds mined from the earth. Yes, identical. Not even a jeweler can tell the difference. 

Ramsey’s Diamond Jewelers has the largest selection of NewBorn Created Diamonds in the South. We're anxious to show them to you. These diamonds are going to raise your eyebrows.

The only jewelers with access to Newborn Created Diamonds are the early adopters who believed in the vision of the creators and made a financial commitment to support them. Ramsey's Diamond Jewelers has been following the development of Created Diamonds since General Electric produced the first ones back in 1970. They were yellow and brown due to nitrogen, and the inclusions were metallic due to nickel. Although it was a miraculous moment in science, the diamonds weren't beautiful.

For more than 40 years we learned, watched, and waited.

In January, 2015, we finally experienced the great “aha” moment. The Created Diamonds we saw were stunningly, staggeringly beautiful. They were identical to the rarest, most coveted diamonds on Earth.

We immediately went “all in” with the artists who had mastered the art of creating diamonds. We believed in them, so we were among the first in the U.S. to partner, ensuring that Ramsey's will always get first pick of the best diamonds they have to offer.

How NewBorn Created Diamonds Are Born

Each NewBorn Created Diamond begins as the tiny seed of another diamond. 

That seed is placed in a plasma chamber that replicates the environment in which geological diamonds form by allowing carbon to crystallize into diamond. This enables the creation of the purest Type IIa diamonds that are then cut in a way that maximizes size, shape, and clarity. They can be completely colorless or a variety of colors that are extremely rare in natural diamonds.

A Created Diamond is the result of a marriage between Technology and Talent.

What is a Type IIa diamond?

There are different crystal structures among geological diamonds mined from the earth, and the most desirable structure is "Type IIa" because it is the purest. Type IIa diamonds are void of impurities, and their surface will take a much brighter polish than any other type of diamond.

Less than 2% of the geological diamonds that come from diamond mines are Type IIa.

100% of NewBorn Created Diamonds are Type IIa.

And the only place you can see them in New Orleans is at Ramsey’s.

Jewelry made with NewBorn Created Diamonds is available in New Orleans at Ramsey’s

NewBorn Created Diamonds are used in all types of diamond jewelry including engagement rings, diamond stud earrings, pendants, necklaces, and bracelets.

We also have an impressive selection of loose Newborn Created Diamonds. So if you fall in love with a setting that doesn't have a diamond, our Diamond Consultants will help you discover the diamond of your dreams, whether it's a Created Diamond or a geological diamond mined from the earth.

At Ramsey's, we have both.
