Oh hey there, and should we say congrats on your upcoming engagement? You’re here, aren’t you? It’s totally cool to shop ahead of time, in fact, we encourage it! Buying an engagement ring is usually the first and one of the most important investments a couple will make together, so it makes sense that you should have a say in what you wear on your finger for [happily] ever after. And if you’re the S.O. looking for the perfect ring to pop the question…welcome! You too are in the right place. So let’s dive on into the bling.

Shopping for rings can be intimidating, and after scrolling a while, they can all start to look the same. Really, when it comes to buying the perfect ring, the key is finding the perfect jeweler. Someone you can trust with quality, ethical sourcing, and craftsmanship, the list goes on and on. And there’s more to finding a trustworthy diamond retailer than checking the reviews. Jean Dousset is the leading brand and authority in lab-grown diamond engagement rings and fine jewelry. And it’s no wonder, he’s the great-great-grandson of Louis Cartier (as in the Cartier). So, with that kind of legacy, you could say designing jewelry is in his DNA.

what exactly is a lab-grown diamond?

Chances are you’ve come across a variety of diamond retailers in your search and you’ve no doubt heard mention of mined vs lab-grown diamonds. So what does it all mean? Mined diamonds are mined by people (at times under questionable conditions). Just like the name says, lab-grown diamonds are created in a lab under ethically regulated conditions. And because nothing is left to chance (like it is with Mother Nature), lab-grown diamonds are able to achieve unprecedented quality and clarity every time. That’s why you’ll be shocked (in the best way) to see the prices on these stunners from Jean Dousset! With lab-grown diamonds, you're getting chemically and optically the same stone for a fraction of the price of their mined counterparts. And Jean Dousset only uses the créme de la créme (the world’s top 1% of GIA-certified diamonds) in their designs, so you know you’re getting the best! Now the only decision you have to make is how to spend the extra savings. You could put it toward the wedding, or tack on a few more carats to your rings…it’s up to you.
