The De Beers-owned brand also debuted a new category of high-quality lab-grown stones called “Finest.”
Lightbox is going bigger with its lab-grown diamonds.
The De Beers-owned brand announced an expansion to its offerings to include sizes up to and including 2 carats.
The pink, blue, and white lab-grown diamonds will still be priced at $800 per carat, as has been Lightbox’s structure from the start.
The brand said it expects to add stone cuts and jewelry silhouettes in 14-karat gold early next year.
Concurrent with the news of the larger sizes, Lightbox also introduced “Finest,” a proprietary diamond engineering process developed by the brand that combines its existing CVD synthesis technology with a “further leading refinement” to enhance the stones’ color.
“Finest” stones are VVS clarity, colorless (D, E, or F in color), and have an excellent cut.
Lightbox said the same technique is also applied to fancy color diamonds in the range, refining the saturation and consistency of the blue and pink lab-grown stones.
Each “Finest” diamond will be laser-inscribed with a unique quality mark just under the table, invisible to the naked eye but visible with a 10X loupe.
Each stone also will come with its own “quality guarantee” detailing its cut, color, and clarity, which Lightbox said serves as its warranty for customer assurance.
Pricing for “Finest” follows a linear model like the one already set by Lightbox, with 1-carat stones priced at $1,500 plus the cost of setting.
