Could you tell the difference between a high street diamond ring and one hand-crafted by a master jeweller?
Actually, you probably could!
A piece of jewellery from Ethica Diamonds is of the highest quality, handcrafted, using the finest grade metals, either partially recycled or Fairtrade. Our designs, while supremely elegant, are also well-constructed, for durability and strength. Because every ring is made to order, the fit will be perfect for you.
Many mass-produced high-street rings will feel lighter and be less durable because of the manufacturing methods. Although they may be cheaper, they are often hollow to reduce the precious metal weight, which in turn makes them considerably less resilient to everyday wear.
ETHICA DIAMONDS SOLITAIRE
HIGH STREET SOLITAIRE
Made to order, for you
Hand crafted, in the UK
Factory made, often in the Far East
Finest quality metals, generously cast, and heavy on your hand, either incorporating recycled or using Fairtrade Gold
Lower quality metals, around 25% less gold (or platinum), may even be hollow
Well-made prongs to hold the diamond in place, either cast as one piece with the band, or with the setting cast separately and lasered to the band. (This means you can have a different metal for the band and the setting, if you choose)
Less solid prongs, greater risk of the stone working loose. The prongs are soldered onto the band. Rings like this are known as ‘peg heads’ and are cheaper to manufacture.
Rolled edges, for comfort on your finger
Square edges to the band
Machine polished in bulk
Comes with the cost of belonging to a national chain, with significant overheads to cover.

KIND DIAMONDS, NOT MINED DIAMONDS
A credible and lasting alternative to diamonds has long been sought, with various diamond simulants appearing on the market, for people who want the sparkle, but are reluctant to pay the price tag.
The Ethica Diamond is a unique and very specific man made product which is very close in structure, composition and hardness to diamond. It is hand cut and polished, to exacting standards as mined diamonds that are cut from the rough.
As with laboratory grown diamonds, this process creates gemstones entirely for the jewellery market, which are of the highest quality, colour and clarity. The Ethica Diamond has the same durability and will never discolour, or crack, and comes with fully accredited with third-party certification by the GRI. You can read more here.
Optically identical to both the finest mined diamonds and laboratory grown diamonds, the Ethica Diamond matches for brilliance, toughness and longevity.
The pricing is set according to manufacturing and retail costs, not according to the fixed diamond pricing structure, therefore it is significantly lower than the equivalent mined or HPHT/CVD laboratory grown diamonds, making it excellent value for money.
