IGI Grades 3 Unique Creations, Including Largest To Date
Mumbai, India. (May 25, 2022) – The International Gemological Institute (IGI), the world’s largest independent gemological laboratory, has analyzed and graded 27.27 carat, 20.24 carat and 15.16 carat lab grown diamonds produced by Greenlab Diamonds LLP. Named in honor of the popular meditative expression Om Namah Shivaya, the 27.27 and 20.24 carat gemstones are the largest polished lab grown diamonds produced to date.
The 27.27 carat marquise step cut, named Om, has dimensions of 34.46 x 18.21 x 5.27 mm. According to the producer, it represents a vision to make India the world leader in the lab grown diamond sector. Om has the additional distinction of finishing “as-grown,” needing no post-growth treatment to enhance color. Namah is a 15.16 carat pear rose cut measuring 24.52 x 15.60 x 4.56 mm, also finishing “as-grown.” Shivaya is a 20.24 carat emerald cut, now the world’s second largest polished lab grown diamond, measuring 22.17 x 10.93 x 7.26 mm. JCK Las Vegas attendees will find all three diamonds on display at the Greenlab Diamonds booth, #8131.
