Born Of Fire
Born Perfect

/ Technology

Our growing process replicates certain favorable conditions that naturally exist 87 to 118 miles below the surface in the mantle of the earth. A ‘Diamond Seed’ placed in the center of a diamond reactor is then processed with High Pressure High Temperature or Chemical Vapor Deposition process for accelerated replication of the seed’s carbon bonds.

We test each ALTR created diamond’s quality to meet our high standards in brilliance and desirability. This ensures each ALTR diamond is a certified Type IIA diamond.

FAQs

How is ALTR Created Diamond different from mined diamonds?

ALTR Created Diamonds are manmade by simulating natural conditions of extreme heat and pressure or chemical vapor deposition. Both mined and lab-grown diamonds are identical in chemical, optical and physical composition.

Is lab-grown diamond a new phenomenon?

Diamonds were first created in a lab in the 1950’s. However, they weren’t gem quality diamonds that could be used in jewelry. Over the past few decades, the process was further perfected. However, only in the last few years has it been possible to produce large white gem quality diamonds that meet or surpass natural diamonds in terms of desirability. So while lab-grown diamonds aren’t a new phenomenon, they have become viable for jewelry only recently.

If ALTR Created Diamonds are the same as mined diamonds, why are they classified separately?

To the naked eye there is no difference between a mined and a created diamond. As the mined diamonds and created diamonds are very difficult to differentiate, complete disclosure is clearly in the best interests of the consumer. So that the customer may be well informed about their choices, our industry is bound by law and ethics to clearly disclose that our diamonds are Lab-grown or Created.

What are the environmental implications of choosing ALTR?

Since these diamonds are created using only a fraction of energy and ecological damage that otherwise goes into creating and subsequently extracting a diamond, they are certainly more environmentally sound.

FAQs

How much time does it take to grow a created diamond?

Depending on the color and size, it can take between 10-18 days to create a diamond in the laboratory.

Are ALTR Created Diamonds same as diamond-like materials?

No, diamond-like materials like Cubic Zirconium, Moissanite and diamond-coated materials are not diamonds whereas ALTR Created Diamond is an absolutely true diamond with a wide range of color, clarity, carat and cut possibilities.

Are there any unique inscriptions for easy identification?

Yes, each ALTR diamond has a unique ID inscribed on the diamond itself.  This information is detailed in your certificate so you can always identify your diamond with the help of a jeweler.

How is ALTR different from other lab-grown diamonds?

ALTR is the only brand that is a complete and exclusive solution for created diamonds. We have a well-appointed infrastructure where we grow our own diamonds. We enhance desirability through our range of created diamonds that qualify as a premium choice for affordable luxury.

Are ALTR Created Diamonds available world-wide?
