Shining Bright: Celebrities Rocking Lab-Grown Diamond Jewelry

Lab-grown diamond jewelry goes far beyond just another passing trend. It is becoming quite the movement in the industry, with high-profile celebrities leading the way. Although everyone’s reason for going with lab-grown rather than naturally mined is different — such as economic, quality, or where the gems are sourced — it’s safe to say that more and more people are choosing these gems. Here are seven of your favorite celebs who have all gone out sporting lab-grown diamond accessories, whether it was on the red carpet, for a special occasion, or just an every day outing.

Meghan Markle

First up, we have the ever-gorgeous Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. Known for her elegant style and commitment to sustainability, Meghan has been spotted wearing lab-grown diamond earrings when out on the town. These stunning pieces not only complement her chic outfits but also align with her values of ethical consumerism.

Jennifer Aniston

Next on our list is the Friends star and fashion icon, Jennifer Aniston. Jen has been seen sporting a beautiful lab-grown diamond necklace to the 2020 Golden Globes. The minimalist design of the necklace perfectly matches her laid-back style, proving that lab-grown diamonds can be just as classy and versatile as their mined counterparts.

Billie Eilish

Our third celebrity is none other than the 'Bad Guy' singer, Billie Eilish. Known for her unique and edgy style, Billie has been rocking lab-grown diamond rings for quite some time. These rings, with their bold designs and sparkling diamonds, perfectly encapsulate Billie's unconventional fashion sense.

Scarlett Johansson

Moving on, we have the 'Avengers' star, Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett made headlines when she wore a stunning lab-grown diamond bracelet to the Oscars. The bracelet, with its intricate design and dazzling diamonds, was a showstopper, proving that lab-grown diamonds can hold their own on the red carpet.

Jill Biden

Next, we have the first lady herself, Jill Biden. Jill was gifted a 7.5 carat lab-grown diamond from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he visited the White House in the summer of 2023. The stone had been created to celebrate the 75th anniversary of India's independence and was a great honor to bestow on the first lady.

Emma Watson

The list goes on with actress and activist, Emma Watson. When Emma attended the 2018 Academy Awards, she was bedazzled in lab-grown accessories, including earrings, a bracelet, and an elaborate neckpiece. The sparkling diamonds really completed her look, reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn's iconic portrayal of Holly Golightly in the 1961 film 'Breakfast at Tiffany's.'

Bindi Irwin

Last but not least, we have Bindi Irwin, daughter of the infamous Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. When Bindi got engaged in July 2019, it was with a lab-created diamond ring. Given her history as a conservationist and her extensive environmental work, this was the perfect choice for her. She beamed over her now fiance's choice, saying, "My ring features a lab-grown diamond and is made with rose gold recycled metal. Chandler was incredibly thoughtful when he chose it, the ring captures the essence of who I am (with its vintage flare) and our life together, with the twisted band and scattered diamonds."

So, why are these celebrities choosing lab-grown diamonds? Well, there are a few reasons. First, lab-grown diamonds are ethically sourced, something very important for activists such as Emma Watson, Meghan Markle, and Bindi Irwin. Lab-grown diamonds are also just as beautiful and durable as mined diamonds, making them a perfect choice for jewelry.

In conclusion, lab-grown diamond jewelry is not just a trend, but a movement that doesn't appear to be slowing down. And with celebrities leading the way, it's only a matter of time before we see more people embracing these beautiful, cost-effective gems. So, the next time you're shopping for jewelry, why not consider lab-grown diamonds?
