The Neroli features Baguette Cut Namibian Diamonds and the Nerine comes in a choice of Namibian or Lab Grown Diamond side stones.

Diamonds grown in a lab are chemically, optically and physically identical to mined diamonds. All diamonds are crystallised carbon and need the right conditions to grow, science creates these conditions and nature does the rest.
