At Lightbox, all our lab-grown diamonds are priced at 800 USD per carat, or 1500 USD for our Lightbox Finest™ collection. As we grow the stones to our own specifications, we can price our lab-grown diamonds in a linear way. This means that the price per carat goes up as the size increases, but your price for the consistent high-quality cut, clarity, and color does not. If you want to buy a piece of Lightbox Jewelry (rather than a loose stone) a small setting cost is then added to the price of the stone, reflective of the type and amount of your chosen metal.
In natural diamond pricing, the price goes up exponentially when a larger weight is combined with high-quality cut, color and clarity as this increases a stone's rarity and value. In lab-grown diamonds, this rarity is removed, meaning we can price our stones in a more affordable way, no matter the carat weight. We're often asked why our stones are often priced lower than lab-grown diamonds available elsewhere - and this is why.
You’ll find that other lab-grown diamond providers follow the natural diamond pricing model, making their prices higher. At Lightbox, our cutting-edge technology (we hold the most patents in the lab-grown diamond field) combined with our linear pricing model offers a new and accessible approach to lab-grown diamonds. Meaning more sparkle, more often.
How it works
Our lab-grown diamonds are priced at 800 USD per carat, or 1500 USD for our Lightbox Finest™ collection. In pink or blue or white.
The price of the jewelry setting is then added to the stone price, with our setting costs varying depending on the type of precious metal used, from sterling silver to 18k gold.
The math is simple. We add the price of the total carat of the stones used, based purely on size, to the setting price, based purely on precious metal, silver or gold.
