When we are asked to manufacture a real diamond from horses tail or mane hair, we are sometimes asked if we can provide the diamond in its raw state.

But once it is cut and polished – especially with 58 facets in the Brilliant Cut form, it scintillates and flashes fire just like the mined diamonds.

Canary coloured diamonds are the easiest to make in our lab’. The shade is derived from Nitrogen.  We also make free-range Blue/White diamonds – which as shown in the following phot’o are very light blue – almost a powder blue or sky blue.
