A Diamondaura is a type of synthetic diamond.


A diamondaura is a lab-created stone that shares the same chemical make-up of a real diamond.


Diamondauras are typically made from ash.


They have relatively the same clarity, brilliance and hardness of a real stone.


There are two basic benefits to purchasing a Diamondaura over a real diamond. The first is cost. Diamondauras retail for approximately half of real diamonds. Secondly, with a Diamondaura a consumer can be assured that the stone was not acquired through illegal means.

Fun Fact

Although it is a synthetic diamond, a Diamondaura can cut glass just like a real diamond.
