The 100 + year-old jewellery company, one of the oldest in North America, has expanded its line of conflict-free, lab-grown diamond jewelry as interest has surged in recent years, due in part to their high quality, as well as the stigma associated with mined diamonds.

Breslauer & Warren Jewellers now offers lab-grown diamonds that feature identical chemical compositions, optical properties, and physical properties as mined diamonds, certified by the International Gemological Institute (IGI) and The Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Chemical Vapour Disposition – CVD – is used in the production of lab-grown diamonds in order to replicate the circumstances that occur during the formation of a natural diamond.
The shift to lab-grown diamond preferences in the North American market has been dramatic. For example, year-to-year data in the U.S. show that engagement rings with lab-grown diamonds in 2022 have jumped by over 70% compared to the previous year. The reasons for the growing acceptance of lab-grown diamonds include environmental sustainability and the problematic sourcing of mined diamonds: even conflict-free diamonds might come from areas with a history of human rights violations, and poor working conditions – all factors that increasingly repel today’s consumers. Moreover, lab-grown diamonds are 30-40% more affordable.
Breslauer & Warren Jewellers offers wedding rings, anniversary rings, and diamond engagement rings from halo to oval, multi-stone, and custom-made. For example, their Solitaire Ring typically has a plain band and a single center diamond devoid of any accent stones. Three-stone rings traditionally signify the past, present, and future of the couple, while halo rings feature a focal stone surrounded by diamonds to produce a halo appearance.

The Calgary jeweler also produces custom-made engagement rings with the assistance of a dedicated studio in New York. Based on the client’s ideas or photos – or consultations with Breslauer & Warren staff, the company can create a one-off piece within two to three weeks. Options include lab-grown diamonds versus naturally mined diamonds; oval cut versus princess cut, and additional stones, such as emeralds and rubies.
One satisfied client last week commented: “Second time shopping here. Always a pleasure. Prices are fair, value is great. Custom pieces to fit your needs are quick. They are quick, to the point and easy to trust. Thank you Petroula & Richard.”
