I’ve always been one to keep it pretty simple when it comes to jewelry. Recently, I discovered Lightbox, an online retailer offering laboratory-grown diamonds that are just as sparkly and pretty as natural diamonds. In fact, they even share the same physical, optical, and chemical properties! I was intrigued by what Lightbox has to offer, and got myself a gorgeous halo 3/4 carat blue pendant necklace. It pairs beautifully with literally anything I choose to wear for the day. There is nothing quite like putting on my outfit and having my jewelry match effortlessly, every time.

The brilliant concept of lab-grown diamonds is new to me. Since I found it to be quite interesting, I wanted to share more about it with you guys! I was surprised to learn that while lab-grown diamonds share the same characteristics as rare, natural diamonds, the process required to create lab-grown ones is different. In short, a tiny piece of a lab-grown diamond is placed into a plasma reactor, where it’s heated to over 6000 degrees Fahrenheit. The time it takes to grow depends on how big you want the crystal to get. Generally speaking, it’s big enough to cut into a polished stone after about 400 hours. As you might imagine, bigger stones take longer to make.

Did you know that natural diamonds in exquisite colors are extremely rare and valuable? Lightbox is able to create jewels in blush pink and baby blue, any day of the week! Pretty neat, right? Their scientists are already diligently working on developing future sparkling colors for us to enjoy. I’m here hoping lavender is a color in the works!

For now, I’m obsessing over my classic halo blue pendant necklace.  The pendant is available in a variety of carat sizes to suit everyone’s level of sparkle. Thanks to the rhodium plated sterling silver, I never have to worry about the necklace tarnishing with everyday wear!

These stones are available now, and you can see these jewels here. I’m already crushing hard on a few other things I see… which means I may or may not treat myself to another beauty soon. At an affordable price point of $800 per carat, how could I not? I also love that Lightbox is so transparent with their pricing – I’m never left wondering how much my necklace will come out to be.

Lightbox’s jewels are perfect gifts for the important women in your life. As a gal who appreciates the lighter moments in life, I love that I don’t feel the need to have a special occasion to wear my necklace. It’s suitable for everyday wear, no matter the moment!

Who would you give the gift of Lightbox to?
