Lab Grown Diamonds | Michaels Jewelers

A NEW CHOICE IN DIAMONDS

WHAT ARE TREASURE CHEST GROWN DIAMONDS?

Treasure Chest Grown diamonds are physically, chemically, and optically identical to their mined counterparts.

The only difference is origin.

It is impossible for the naked eye to differentiate between a grown diamond and a mined diamond.

Even a gemologist with a microscope cannot tell the difference!

LAB GRADED & LASER INSCRIBED

Treasure Chest Grown diamonds are graded by the same leading independent labs that grade mined diamonds.
"Lab Grown” and a report number is laser-inscribed on the girdle of each diamond.

*All lab grown diamonds over 0.25 carat are graded and laser-inscribed.
