WD Lab Grown Diamonds provides conflict-free, lab-grown diamonds of the highest quality, as graded by the world-renowned International Gemological Institute. They are cut to the most exacting standards – yet they cost about 25 percent less than mined diamonds of the same size, cut and quality.
WD Lab Grown Diamonds has combined its substantial personnel experience, industry expertise and deep theoretical and research background to produce and develop better diamonds for the gemstones market, as well as for industrial and high-tech applications.
The Carnegie Institution of Washington (CIW) has licensed WD Lab Grown Diamonds the single-crystal CVD diamond growth technology it has developed during the last 15 years.
The methods and equipment associated with CVD diamond growth allow WD Lab Grown Diamonds not only to grow beautiful diamonds, but to pioneer new technologies and applications using diamond as a supermaterial.
Headquartered just outside Washington, DC, WD Lab Grown Diamonds was established in 2008 by Clive Hill, a lifelong expert in the diamond jewelry industry.
