At Herzog Jewelers, we've never been shy about our opinion on lab grown diamonds. For some, they are a great way to get an affordable engagement ring that is exactly what you want with no need to compromise for budget. For others, it's a great way to trace the origin of their diamond. Many of our customers still stay away from lab grown as they are worried it's a fad and that they don't hold value like natural diamonds- also a very valid concern!
For all the pros and the cons, we are as transparent as we can be about quality, pricing, sustainability, and longevity of lab grown diamonds when helping you make your purchase. As the technology around Lab Grown Diamonds has expanded, so has the landscape of how we create and sell diamonds. We've added a new manufacturer to our lineup that we are incredibly excited about sharing as an option with our customers- especially those looking to get engaged who seek the most sustainable option available on the market.
