We do not sell or create settings unless the customer is also purchasing a center stone from Hatch Brilliance. Our settings are made-to-order with each one handcrafted for a center gem with unique characteristics to ensure the quality of the finished piece. For this reason, we do not provide stand-alone settings or semi mounts. Please let us know if we can assist you with selecting a center gem from Hatch Brilliance.

How long have lab-grown diamonds been around
December 16, 1954 was the first time a commercially successful lab-grown diamond was produced by GE. Lab-Grown diamonds have been used in a wide variety of uses including, power transmission, semi-conductors, sensors, optics, and medical. It's only been recently that they have been produced for amazing gem quality engagement rings and jewelry.
How are lab-grown diamonds grown
There are two kinds of productions, (CVD) Chemical Vapor Deposition and (HPHT) High Pressure-High Temperature. Both processes require a small diamond seed that is placed in a diamond in a low pressured microwave chamber. Hydrogen and methane gases are then released and the growing process begins. Then, a plasma ball ignites and carbon molecules rain down on the seed for it to grow layer upon layer. Around the 10-12 week time, a diamond is formed and ready to be sent for cutting and polishing. Hatch Brilliance white diamonds are grown with the CVD process.
