"We sold our first lab grown diamond to the world back in 2004. It has taken some time for our relatively small industry to bloom.


Lab grown gemstones and the consumer were not ready 18 years ago. We believe they are ready now.


We founded CARAT* London in 2003 in the belief that fine jewellery needed democratising. The mission was to be inclusive rather than exclusive.


The key to our success was sticking with trends, keeping the quality high, and to work with talented design and quality lab grown alternatives to mined gemstones.


Our lab grown diamonds, sapphire, ruby emerald, and cubic zirconia are selected from premium rough for high specification polishing.


We believe we are in a new diamond age, a new diamond for a new generation"
