A lab grown diamond is just that, a diamond. It consists of carbon atoms that have the exact same crystal structure, chemical composition, and optical and physical properties as a mined diamond.
The only difference between mined and lab grown diamonds is that a lab grown diamond is created under controlled conditions. This allows for a more transparent supply chain and radically reduces the carbon footprint.
For every carat, a mined diamond requires 7300 litres of water and emits 160kg of CO2. This is drastically high in comparison to just 1 litre of water and 12kg of CO2 for each carat grown in a lab. (Trucost Report 2017). Creating our jewels exclusively with lab grown diamonds is a conscious choice, and all Unsaid diamonds grown at our lab, ALTR Tech in Surat, India are powered with renewable energy.
The 4Cs—colour, clarity, cut and carat weight—are the globally accepted standards for assessing the quality of a diamond.
Colour: refers to the natural tint inherent in white diamonds. Most white diamonds have a slight tint of yellow, and diamonds come in a variety of colours.
Cut:refers to how a diamond’s facets interact with light and is the only criteria that depends entirely on human hands. The cut enhances all of a diamond's qualities and reveals the most perfect balance between brilliance, fire, and scintillation.
Clarity: refers to the number, size, position, and colour of the inclusions visible in the stone, under a 10x magnifying glass. The more inclusions there are, the less the clarity and value of the stone, since inclusions affect the diamond’s ability to reflect light.
Carat: refers to the weight of a diamond, not the size. One carat equals 0.20 grams, which has been an international standard unit of measurement since 1907. The word "carat" comes from the seeds of the carob tree, used in antiquity to measure the weight of a diamond.
Our diamonds are grown at our lab in Surat, India, before they are taken to our factory in Mumbai where we have been cutting diamonds for three generations. Our local artisans bring decades of knowledge and passion to every Unsaid diamond, pushing boundaries year after year.
Every round diamond weighing 0.5 carats or more, comes with a diamond certificate with H+ colour and VS+ quality. The certificate is issued by the International Gemological Institute (IGI), an independent laboratory and official organisation. This is a veritable identity card for each stone, indicating its composition in terms of the 4Cs, but also providing a body of supplementary information.
A lab grown diamond is an amazing feat of technology. A diamond seed is placed in a sealed chamber and heated to around 800 degrees Celsius. The chamber is filled with a carbon rich gas which is ionised into plasma that breaks the molecular bonds in the gases. Finally, the pure carbon adheres to the seed and crystallises, forming a unique diamond with the exact same scintillation, flash, fire, and brilliance as earth-extracted diamonds.
Lab grown diamonds have no nitrogen in the lattice and are classified as Type IIa. Diamonds almost entirely devoid of impurities are rare, and only 5% of all mined diamonds can compare.
We see lab grown diamonds as both the responsible and creative choice.
At Unsaid we want to provide alternatives that are better for both people and the planet.
All Unsaid creations are set with lab grown diamonds
All lab grown diamonds are H+ colour and VS+ quality.
All lab grown diamonds above 0.5ct come with an IGI diamond certificate (H+ colour and VS+ quality)

Regular maintenance is the best way to ensure the longevity of your precious jewels.
In everyday use, your jewellery might be subject to stress such as bumps, scratches, UV radiation, dust, sweat, and fluctuations in temperature. For this reason, we recommend that you have your jewellery cleaned and serviced every three years by bringing it to one of our stores or to an authorised distributor of your choice.
Jewellery is delicate and needs to be handled with care to keep its beauty and brilliance. Take care to protect your jewellery from being scratched against hard surfaces and any sudden movements that could cause damage to the stone or setting. Store your jewels in its Unsaid box to avoid jewellery scratching against each other and getting tangled.
We recommend removing all jewellery when doing household chores as repeated contact with detergents and bleach can damage the metal, when doing sports and before getting in contact with water.
To clean a stone or a diamond pavé, we recommend using a mild non-abrasive cleaner and a soft toothbrush under hot water to gently remove dirt without damaging the jewellery.
