Beauty & Science Collide
Lab-created diamonds are an exceptional mix of master craftsmanship and science - in fact, they have the same optical, chemical, and physical properties as natural diamonds. The core differences are the time they took to form, and their origin.
THE KAY DIFFERENCE
KAY lab-created diamonds are colorless, with little to no inclusions visible to the naked eye, for a stunning look that maximizes your budget. And whether lab-created or natural, our diamonds are 100% conflict-free.
It's Your Choice
With over 100 years experience, we know diamonds. We believe that diamonds are right for everyone, but everyone may have a different idea as to which diamond is right for them. At KAY, our goal is to help you determine the best diamond to meet your needs.
