Natural diamonds were formed under immense pressure, deep beneath the earth, anything over a billion years ago. Renowned Austrian crystal company Swarovski has speeded up the process with the introduction of Created Diamonds; a pioneering collection of lab-created diamonds set to bring fine jewellery into the future. While mined diamonds are subject to a wealth of environmental and ethical issues, Swarovski Created Diamonds remove these factors by creating real gemstones from diamond ‘seeds’ in laboratory conditions. The final stones are identical in composition and quality to a natural diamond and can be produced in a fraction of the time. These exceptional diamonds are combined with responsibly sourced gold and gemstones in the brand’s first ever fine jewellery collection, which includes the pictured blue topaz and Created Sapphire bracelet, among many other stunning pieces.
