Wrapping around your finger with ethereal, airy, glistening dewdrops. The Brilliant Daphne features a round brilliant cut diamond centre, with the finest claws and bubbling recycled diamonds. 

We offer lab grown diamond centre stones in a wide range of shapes and carat weights:

  • 0.5ct, 0.8ct, 1ct, 1.5ct, 2ct, 2.5ct (all centre stones come within +0.05ct; you will never receive a stone below the carat weight selected, but you may receive a stone slightly bigger, such as 0.55ct).
  • Round brilliant cut, emerald cut, oval cut, marquise cut, pear cut, cushion cut (square shape to subtle rectangle)
  • For more information about carat size and diamond shapes, scroll down.
  • Click the "Guide" link beside the centre stone size selection to see approximate measurements for each carat and shape combination, as well as colour, clarity and cut gradings for each shape.

Your diamond will fall within our high quality standards -- for specific colour and clarity ranges for each cut, see our size chart, and for more information regarding diamond grading, see Diamond Grading Explained below. We will generally select gradings that are on the higher end of the options listed, according to availability. 

The centre stone will come with certification by GIA, IGI, or GCAL. For more information, see Diamond Grading Explained: Grading Laboratories below. The laboratory that does your diamond grading depends on diamond availability at the time of purchase.

Certain stone cuts have options for prongs -- see Design your lab grown diamond ring below for examples with photos.

Your ring will be handmade to order—please allow 4 to 6 weeks for us to create the piece before shipping to you.

The Daphne's band features natural (mined) diamonds:
Two 1.5mm rose cut diamonds (SI1, GHI)
1.2mm, 1mm, 0.9mm recycled round brilliant cut white diamonds (VS, GH)

*Important note: Daphne rings with 2.00ct+ round, oval, pear, or cushion diamonds and 2.50ct emerald cut diamonds will be made with our larger Daphne ring mount, which we use exclusively for large centre stones. It is slightly thickened overall and the diamonds on the band are all 0.1mm larger, which creates a balanced and supported design. The natural diamonds on this larger Daphne are:
Two 1.6mm rose cut diamonds (SI1, GHI)
1.3mm, 1.2mm, 1mm recycled round brilliant cut white diamonds (VS, GH)

  • Gold: our collection is made with recycled Canadian gold.
  • Champagne Gold: for more information on champagne gold, click here.
  • Stones: All of the stones in our collection are ethically-sourced and conflict-free. They are natural, mined stones.
  • Diamonds: Along with being ethically-sourced and conflict-free, we work with recycled diamonds whenever we can for the least environmental impact.

If you’re looking for a different type of cut, a different type of gemstone or different metal (18k, platinum) for this ring, please submit a bespoke request and we can help you customize your ring.

All of our pieces are entirely hand crafted in our Toronto studio by our small, talented team. Laurie hand-carves every design; they are not 3D modelled on a computer and 3D printed— this includes our bespoke pieces. Each one is carved from wax, polished and stone-set by hand.

Every piece is highly considered at every angle and carved from wax to perfectly compliment the stones that will be set. We don’t use pre-fabricated, mass-produced settings made for fitting various stones and solder them on. Every setting is carved in-studio, in our signature style with special attention paid to how it will frame the stone and overall design, and how it will wear. Every small detail, down to our claw-shaped prongs, are shaped meticulously by hand.

If you would like to split your order up into scheduled payments, please email us at and we'll help you get set up.

We offer very flexible payment plans spaced over the course of production of the piece. For example, we can split your payment into 3, over the course of 6 weeks. Or, we can create a longer payment plan, for example, over 3-6 months-- according to what works for you. Please let us know if you have a payment schedule that you prefer.

We begin production of the piece after the first payment, and we ship the piece to you once the last payment has been completed.

What are

Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds share the same chemical structure as natural, mined diamonds. While mined diamonds are formed in the earth over millions of years through combined heat and pressure, lab diamonds are produced in a lab in a much shorter period, in a simulation of that same environment.

Lab diamonds are graded for the same criteria as mined diamonds, and have the same durability. To the average viewer, mined diamonds and lab diamonds look the same; only a trained gemologist using special equipment can discern the difference.

Diamond Grading Explained


People often believe that carat refers to the size of a diamond, but it actually refers to the weight. The higher the carat, the more costly the diamond, as diamonds are priced according to their weight and quality.


A chemically pure diamond consisting of pure carbon would be completely colourless. Colour in diamonds comes from trace elements in the stone (most often nitrogen, which give diamonds a yellowish hue).

Colourless diamonds are graded from D to Z. D, E, and F graded diamonds are considered "colourless", and G, H, I, and J coloured diamonds are considered "near colourless". From there, diamonds start to take on a noticeably yellowish tone (or sometimes brown, or a mix of both). Colour is viewed as the most subjective of the gradings, because sometimes you may prefer the look of a warm coloured stone, or something champagne. When looking for a traditional colourless diamond, we generally would be considering I colour or higher.

Our lab grown diamonds will always be D, E, or F colour, giving them a stunning colourless appearance. We may select down to a G colour for 1.50ct marquise diamonds, as they are rarer lab grown diamonds and can be tricky to source.

Lab grown diamonds are generally very hard or not possible to source in lower colour grades/champagne tones.


During their formation, diamonds can form internal characteristics that are called "inclusions," and external characteristics known as "blemishes." The highest quality diamonds have no visible inclusions and no blemishes at all.

Clarity is divided into 6 categories:

  • Flawless (FL): No inclusions and no blemishes visible under 10x magnification
  • Internally Flawless (IF): No inclusions visible under 10x magnification
  • Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS1 and VVS2): Inclusions so slight they are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification
  • Very Slightly Included (VS1 and VS2): Inclusions are observed with effort under 10x magnification, but can be characterized as minor
  • Slightly Included (SI1 and SI2): Inclusions are noticeable under 10x magnification
  • Included (I1I2, and I3) Inclusions are obvious under 10x magnification which may affect transparency and brilliance. Inclusions are often dark or black, and usually easily visible to the naked eye.

For the most part, anything over an SI1 grading is considered "eye clean," meaning any inclusions are not visible to the naked eye.

Our lab grown diamonds will be VVS1 - VS1 clarity, meaning they will be perfectly clean to the naked eye, with only very minor inclusions that can only be seen under magnification.


Cut is a diamond characteristic that is often neglected, but is actually the most important factor in a beautiful stone. This is because the Cut determines how the diamond will sparkle and come to life.

For round brilliant diamonds, cut is usually graded on three aspects:

  • Make: the overall quality of the cut (angles and proportions, etc.)
  • Polish: the quality of the surface finish of the diamond
  • Symmetry: the design and proportions of the diamond

Fancy shapes (ie. emerald cut, oval, marquise, pear, cushion, etc) are traditionally only graded for polish and symmetry and do not have Cut (make) gradings.

The grading for these aspects depends on the laboratory assessing the stone: GIA and GCAL use Excellent > Very Good > Good > Fair > Poor, while IGI uses Ideal > Excellent > Very Good > Good > Fair.

Round brilliant cut diamonds have scientifically designed proportions and facets, to the point that there is a possible "perfect" cut against which all round brilliant diamonds are compared. It's important to keep in mind though that in real life, diamonds will be worn in a variety of lighting situations, which will change the way the diamond sparkles and looks. "Perfect" proportions are always great to aim for, but those designed proportions are also generally measured in specific lab lighting.

For fancy shapes, the polish and symmetry are usually the most important factors, with length to width ratios also being an important factor. We generally try to select stones within 'ideal' ratios for each shape. However, it's important to note that shape is very subjective and can be used creatively for achieving different designs.

Antique cuts also usually fall outside the norms of lab grading, usually receiving Fair or Poor cut grades, despite being visually stunning. They don't fit into modern measurements for Cut grades.

Our round lab grown diamonds will have excellent or ideal cut/polish/symmetry. Other shapes will have excellent to very good cut/polish/symmetry.


Fluorescence in diamonds refers to how reactive the diamond is to UV light. In slightly yellow-hued diamonds (ie. a K colour), strong blue fluorescence can make them appear whiter than they actually are. About 25-35% of natural diamonds have some degree of fluorescence. It usually does not have any impact on the appearance of the diamond, but if a black light were to shine on it, it may have a faint glow.

Grading Laboratories

Though it is the most well-known, the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is not the only laboratory that grades diamonds.

For a long time, the GIA didn't grade lab grown diamonds at all (this has changed in recent years as lab grown diamonds have become more common and accepted in the jewellery industry). Because of this, many lab grown diamonds are graded by other institutions:

  • IGI (International Gemological Institute)
  • GCAL (Gem Certification & Assurance Lab)

The centre stones in our lab grown diamond rings will always be accompanied by a report, but depending on availability at the time of purchase, they may be certified by any one of these three labs. Your ring will come with a diamond grading certificate prepared by either the GIA, IGI, or GCAL.

Diamond Shapes

Round Brilliant







Round - Five Prongs

A key design element of our Wild Iris and Cyndra Supreme rings, our five prong option stands out while holding your round brilliant diamond in elegant security.

Brilliant Ilona Ring

Round - Six prongs

Beautifully balanced, your round brilliant diamond will have two subtle groups of three prongs on either side of the band.

Oval - Four Prongs

An oval shaped diamond held in four prongs strikes a perfect balance between delicacy and security. The prongs at the four corners create a slight visual "squaring" effect, making the stone appear more rectangular.

Oval - Six Prongs

Like our six prong option for round diamonds, but elongated; your oval diamond will be cradled between three prongs at either end.

Emerald - Four prongs

Forever a classic, your emerald cut lab grown diamond will be held with a single finely-pointed claw at each corner.

Emerald - Eight Prongs

An LF favourite, with two claw-shaped prongs at each corner of your lab grown emerald cut diamond, uniquely accentuating the stone's shape.

Pear - Five Prongs

With a cluster of three prongs at the pear's pointed tip and two prongs at the pear's rounded base, our five prong option keeps your pear shaped diamond secure. One prong is required on the point of the pear to protect it.

1ct Grey Pear Ilona Ring - OOAK

Pear - Six Prongs

Our six prong option for pear cut diamonds has three prongs at the diamond's pointed tip, and three prongs at the diamond's rounded base. One prong is required on the point of the pear to protect it.

Marquise - Six Prongs

Our marquise diamonds are set with six prongs; three at either end. Prongs are required on the points of the marquise to protect them from breakage. Six is the required minimum amount of prongs.

Cushion - Four Prongs

Cushion cut diamonds are set with four prongs, one at each corner, delicately supported and secured.
