Product Description

 

The Purest Form of Love:

Our Takara lab grown diamonds are real diamond - near colorless and colorless lab grown white diamonds, cut to incredible Super Ideal H&A perfection to offer you the chance to experience one of the most stunning diamonds in the world.  They are purer and harder than 98% of all mined diamonds.  We cut exclusively to H&A cut Takara 'Eternity' Super ideal H&A lab diamond standards, which are a match for the vaunted AGS-000 standards. 

Our Takara Eternity Super Ideals are the absolute pinnacle of diamond beauty - only 1% of mined diamonds are cut to this level of beauty due to the cost and complexity involved. 

Update - 3/15/19 - Our first ever 1ct+ Takara Eternity has completed - 1.07ct!  And another first, our very first D color as well (1.01ct).

Update - 2/21/19 - One of our best yet Takara lab diamonds was born last night...we are optimistic it will be D color, high clarity and over 1ct finished!  It was so exciting that we made a quick video to show you:


Production of 1ct+ Takara's should ramp quite a bit over the next two months - and just in time as we are basically sold out of 1ct Amora Gems!  These first 4 should be ready with independent grading in the next 2-3 weeks.

In the news:  Lab diamond sales are expanding rapidly as an article in Forbes points out -

Lab diamond demand growing, sector expected to grow 22% per year vs 2% per year for mined diamonds:

https://www.forbes.com/…/lab-diamonds-will-be-jewelers…/amp/

 


Our focus is on maximum fire and beauty - every Takara Eternity is cut to AGS-000 Super Ideal H&A standards, and below you can see the results via studio video of a Takara Eternity, F color, VS2:

 

Update: 11/16/18 - we've restocked!  We'll have pro photo and  video end of next week.  The diamond grading lab was very impressed with the Takara cutting work, calling it "gorgeous" :)  (Less than 1% of all diamonds are cut to this level of beauty).

11/7/18 - We've sold out of Takara H&A lab diamonds.  We have more in grading now and hope to have these out for sale by Nov 16th or so!

10/28/18 - First Takara H&A lab diamonds are in inventory and ready to purchase!  Includes .46ct E/IF (Internally Flawless) H&A and .68ct E/SI1, AGS-0 Super Ideal H&A! 

10/19/18 - We are working now on production of H&A cut Takara lab white diamonds! These will start off smaller (.50ct - .75ct) and working our way towards 1ct+ size.  Color will be E-H color.  These will primarily be targeted as earrings and will be cut to our famed Eternity Super Ideal H&A cut specs!  More info over the next few weeks.  We are hoping to offer these in the price range of $1500/ct (!).

Update 2: 10/19/18 - Quick (and slightly distorted - photo was taken at an angle) cell phone pic of the first Super Ideal H&A Takara round - both hearts and arrows pattern!  It's a poor photo overall but the diamond grading lab will be taking new ones in high resolution next week...thus for now a sneak peek:

Pure Grown from birth:

Unlike most other lab grown diamonds, Takaras are pure grown from the start.  Many lab grown diamonds are grown at low color, fast rate via CVD, and then HPHT treated to try and clean up the growth errors and make them whiter.  The inherent impurities and atomic dislocations mean they have a grey or brown tint that does not look good (most mined H color and lower will have yellow tinting, not brown or grey) and will not achieve D/E/F color like Takaras.

Takara's are 100% HPHT grown in an ultra-pure environment.  This means it takes longer to grow each Takara, but the result - some of the purest, hardest and most perfect diamonds on the planet - is very much worth it.


Note that this New York Times article discusses the increasing demand for the ultra-pure Type IIA diamonds and may be of interest:  The Market for Golconda diamonds has mushroomed

 

The 2.40ct Takara is the largest colorless round lab created diamond currently available for sale in the world!  (Not to mention it's an Ideal cut round...which is rarer amongst mined and lab grown).  

Of interest, the Takara 2.40ct sells for approximately 1/4 the price of the equivalent mined diamond ($18K vs. $62K)...and is purer and harder than 98% of all mined diamonds

Sample Grading report - All Takara Lab Diamonds come with a full diamond grading report  from an independent grading laboratory (either NAGL or IGI):

Takara Lab Diamond Grading Report

You may wish to review our Takara Inventory page, which has details on each diamond's cut grade, depth and table %, and the OGI Light performance ranking for Fire/Brilliance/Scintillation.  

Takara lab diamonds are hand cut, unlike our Amora Gem which is robotically cut, so each Takara will have various light performance and cut grade.

More about Takara Lab Diamonds:

Lab grown ultra-pure diamonds rather than mined - environmentally friendly, and 100% Conflict Free.

Takaras are Type IIa diamonds, grown in a lab.  Takara diamonds are thus purer than 98% of all mined diamonds, as well as harder than 98% of all mined diamonds.  

Most mined diamonds contain varying levels of nitrogen and hence are frequently 'near colorless'.  These impurities also result in a slightly softer diamond compared to their purer and thus atomically more perfect, Type IIa counterparts.  

Mined diamonds such as the famed Golconda diamonds and the Cullinan diamond are also in the rare, Type IIa diamond and we are pleased to have our Takara lab diamonds in the same Type IIa diamond category - Type IIa, with exceptional clear color.  

This exceptional purity means every Takara white is a true colorless diamond that grade as D, E or F (all 'colorless' grades) on the GIA diamond grading scale.  

You can see more details on each Takara lab diamond on our inventory search page:

  1. I'm very impressed with it and looking forward to more Takara in the future.

    By Unknown on February 27th, 2019

    I recently bought a 0.46ct Takara diamond on behalf of my brother (as his to be engagement ring) and we are very satisfied with it, and so is his fiancee.
    So much fire and brilliance from this dainty diamond.


  2. Everything a diamond should be

    By Unknown on December 27th, 2018

    Often times the greatest beauty is found within the simplicity of a common task executed to perfection; in this case, the cutting of a diamond. Recently I had the pleasure of examining my very first Takara Eternity, and it is without a doubt one of the most exquisite diamonds in existence. If cut is the first consideration when ordering your priorities of the four C's, Better Than Diamond has knocked it out of the park with their achievement. No facet of performance has been overlooked or sacrificed, with easily discernible hearts and arrows and sparkle that just lends itself to being admired for long stretches of time while you are temporarily mesmerized by the allure of a diamond that is everything a diamond should be. Everyone who saw it was completely awed, including a long time jeweler. For those who find it helpful, it has an HCA score of 0.9. Indeed, the only "fault" to be found (at least for me, which is entirely personal preference) is I will need them a little bigger!


  3. The Diamond of my Dreams!

    By Leah on August 22nd, 2015

    I can't believe the beauty of this diamond, but the price I paid is unimaginable! When I was married 25 years ago I didn't want a diamond. The human and environmental costs were too high, and the cartel system used to sell diamonds was disturbing. I never thought at the time that lab grown diamonds would ever be available. I've been watching the progress of the industry for the last decade, and when I stumbled upon the Takara Diamonds while I was looking at the Amora, I literally couldn't believe it. The color, size, clarity, and prices were the best I'd ever seen. I immediately ordered the 1.55 carat stone and it is beautiful! I never thought I could afford this kind of diamond. If you are looking for a diamond buy a Takara! You will never regret it!
