At Livva Østerby, our commitment to creating jewellery that is both stunning and socially responsible has led us to embrace cultivated ethical diamonds, also known as lab-grown diamonds, as a sustainable alternative to mined diamonds.
We prioritize the ethical and responsible choice without compromising on quality or aesthetics. Cultivated diamonds possess the same exquisite beauty, brilliance, and durability as their mined counterparts. However, they are created under controlled conditions, eliminating the need for environmentally destructive mining practices. This results in a significantly lower environmental impact and a more predictable price range.
When it comes to quality, cultivated diamonds adhere to the same rigorous grading system known as the 4 Cs (carat, cut, colour, and clarity) as mined diamonds. In fact, their controlled growth process often yields a more uniform and precise outcome, resulting in even higher quality.
By choosing cultivated diamonds, you not only get quality affordable luxury jewellery, you also make an ethical and sustainable choice contributing to ending the exploitation and unfair labour practices associated with mined diamonds. With cultivated diamonds, you can enjoy the beauty and craftsmanship of your jewellery while making a positive impact on both the environment and the lives of those involved in the diamond industry.
While our current collection includes responsibly sourced Top Wesselton diamonds certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council, we are committed to furthering our sustainable practices. We are actively working towards transitioning all our diamonds to ethical sources as soon as our current inventory is sold out. This ongoing commitment reflects our dedication to creating jewellery that aligns with our values and contributes to a more sustainable future.
