Moments of Sparkle with Lightbox: Pricing Explained

***Special thanks to Lightbox for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

A while ago, I introduced a new brand and concept that I’m loving – Lightbox’s laboratory-grown diamonds. Remember how I was tempted to get another piece? Well, after getting a halo pendant necklace in blue, I really wanted one in pink too! This time, I got a 1/2 carat stone with the same silver setting. Occasionally, I like layering my necklaces. I felt that getting a smaller size would allow me to layer nicely with the first one I got! As I had mentioned before, Lightbox’s jewelry is light on the pocket, at just $800 per carat. Since jewelry pricing can be confusing, I wanted to take some time to explain how it works for Lightbox’s lab-grown diamonds!

One of the biggest reasons why I feel at ease purchasing Lightbox jewelry over and over again is because their pricing is always transparent – just like their beautiful stones. You might be wondering, “why is that?” Unlike diamonds created in nature, lab-grown ones are easier to produce. They are not rare. Contrarily, regular diamonds are priced individually because no one diamond is the same. They also come with certificates to describe their character and qualities.

Lightbox is different because they are able to create many lab-grown diamonds everyday. Their solitaires do not come with certificates to describe them because they are all the same – equally stunning and sparkly! However, every lab-grown diamond larger than a 1/4 carat is laser inscribed with the Lightbox logo. Rest assured, the logo is invisible to the naked eye. It is just there as a promise of quality.

The pricing is simply determined by two factors: the size of the stone and the setting. Regardless of what color stone you pick, it is $800 per carat. This means that if you choose a 1/2 carat stone, it will be half the cost – $400. As far as the setting goes, Lightbox has two prices for this piece and design – $100 for silver and $200 for 10 karat gold. So, if I wanted a 1 carat stone with a 10 karat gold setting, it will total $1000. As someone whose weakest subject in school was math, I truly appreciate how easy it is to figure out pricing when I see something I like.

By making pricing a no-brainer, Lightbox encourages their customers to focus on the lighter moments of life, such as time well-spent with loved ones, a birthday celebration, and even just “the now.” I know I will be cherishing many moments of sparkle with Lightbox in my lifetime!

      I’m so happy to hear that, Eileen! I also am a fan of Lightbox’s pricing because it’s a no-brainer. I suck at math and the last thing I want to do when I’m trying to purchase something is figure out how much it’ll cost. These beautiful necklaces would make the perfect Christmas gift!

    I am new to the concept of lab made diamonds and it was interesting to know about Lightbox. Are these diamonds considered to be as valuable as the traditional diamonds?

    • Sharon Wu
      October 27, 2018

      They are not considered to be as valuable as traditional diamonds because they can be more easily made, but the quality is impeccable!

  • Marcie

    Amazing diamond on a great silver lace. The design is top notch and very good detail in it. This is surely a head turner whenever be seen.

    • Sharon Wu
      October 28, 2018

      Thank you Catherine! I have gotten plenty of compliments on these gems already! xx

  • Joanna

    • Sharon Wu

      Yes! I usually just buy costume jewelry because I don’t wear them often enough before I lose them but these have definitely been great investments for me.

  • Liz
    October 28, 2018

    Nice! this necklace is not too fancy yet sophisticated if you examine. It triggers my interest to check lightbox’s products too.

  • Jessica
    October 28, 2018

    I had never really heard of lab-grown diamonds before – pretty neat! Pricing is also a big deal to me when it comes to jewelry because I want to make sure that I’m making a worthy investment in something beautiful that will last, and not just something that will turn my neck green lol! Great post!

    • Sharon Wu
      October 28, 2018

      I am with you! Haha green necks are never any fun. Luckily, these beauties won’t do that to ya 😉 xx

    • Sharon Wu
      October 28, 2018

      I understand! A lot of people factor in pricing when investing in bigger purchases like jewelry so I just thought I’d share more. The pricing structure is a bit different for Lightbox’s lab-grown diamonds compared to traditional diamond jewelry.

  • Candace

    Okay, but the colors in these are just too spectacular! I’m obsessed with that amethyst one (my birth stone)! So stunning it’s unreal.

    • Sharon Wu
      October 28, 2018

      Aren’t they? I think it’s more of a pink than amethyst – although I would LOVE for them to come out with an amethyst color because purple is my fave hahaha

    • Sharon Wu
      October 29, 2018

      I totally understand! I love that these lab-grown diamonds are more affordable than traditional diamonds, and the quality is there too. It allows me to splurge on something nice, while still having $$ in the bank account for other things! 😉 haha

    • Sharon Wu
      October 30, 2018

      I couldn’t agree more! These gems have definitely been a worthwhile investment for me. I love that I can wear them everyday and not have to worry about it tarnishing on me. It’s small enough to wear everywhere, including the gym and I don’t ever really have to worry about it!
