Every lab-created diamond used in Pandora jewellery is sustainably created, rather than being drawn from the earth. This means that we know the origin of every unique, hand-cut stone, which are all CarbonNeutral® certified, embodying a brighter future for the diamond industry. Identical to mined diamonds, each lab-created diamond is crafted to perfection by skilled artisans who replicate nature's process above ground. After which, each stone is cut and polished to exceptional standards, creating one-of-a-kind lab-created diamonds that are physically, chemically and optically identical to their mined counterparts.
The four value factors
Diamonds possess qualities that make them easily and systematically evaluated with internationally standardised terminology according to weight, colour, clarity and cut to determine the rarity and value of individual stones. Carat, the diamond's measurement classification, is not to be confused with “karat”, which is the measurement of gold.
Carat denotes the weight of the diamond; not its size. No matter what carat weight you choose from a Pandora collection, you can rest assured that the quality across the other 3Cs remains as guaranteed.
The absence of colour is an important factor in determining the quality of a diamond, and they are judged on a scale from D to Z. For our diamonds, we accept nothing less than “J” or better – a rating of Near Colourless – meaning it is very difficult for the eye to perceive any colour at all in its iconic setting, and allows for maximum light reflection.
A diamond's clarity grade refers to the presence or absence of flaws in the diamond. The fewer the flaws, or "inclusions" within a diamond, the more brilliant and sparkling it will appear. All Pandora's diamonds are rated VS2+, meaning that they will appear flawless to the naked eye.
Cut defines a diamond’s personality and fire. By perfecting precise angles, proportions and symmetry, every stone we create is masterfully cut to draw maximum brilliance and sparkle. All Pandora diamonds are round brilliant, excellent cut – the highest standard for cut.
Love your stone!
Care for your diamond by avoiding rough handling. When you're not wearing it, store it separately from your other pieces to avoid scratches. Clean it with lukewarm, soapy water and gentle brushing. Ultrasonic cleaners should be used with caution as they can damage heat-treated diamonds and diamonds with imperfections that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
