Why did we start a custom lab-grown diamond fine jewelry company?


The founder of Reverence Jewelry, Susie Saltzman, has been guiding individuals and couples through the process of designing their dream engagement ring for over a decade through her namesake brand Susie Saltzman Fine Jewelry

Having worked at Tiffany & Co., exclusively with natural diamonds throughout most of her extensive career, Susie, along with many others, was initially skeptical of this new resource in the market.  It was only after years of research into the different types of lab grown diamonds and understanding their inherent benefits that Susie's mind started to change. The more she learned, the more excited she got about this new option in the market! Why?

Because it gives clients the power to CHOOSE. Here is what we've learned…. Lab-grown diamonds are the first and ONLY alternative to natural diamonds that are REAL diamonds!

Lab-grown diamonds have the same chemical, physical and optical properties as natural, mined diamonds. They contain all the sparkle, fire, and durability that a natural diamond is revered for.

Even to the trained eye, it is nearly impossible to tell the visual difference between a lab-grown diamond and a mined diamond.  It often takes special instruments and chemical testing to say definitively whether or not your diamond is lab or mined. They are intrinsically less rare, and therefore lab-grown diamonds can be purchased at a much more affordable price than a natural diamond! Additionally, all of the lab-grown diamonds we work with are ethically produced and environmentally sustainable, making them a choice you can feel proud of.

Lab grown diamonds are the only alternative to natural diamonds that are real diamonds. You now have a diamond alternative that doesn’t require you to sacrifice sparkle, durability or brilliance. This creates a world of possibilities and allows you to design your dream ring intentionally and even more personally, and we are really excited about it!

After extensive research, Susie had a lightbulb moment. She realized that she could offer a thoughtfully curated selection of stunning lab-grown diamond engagement rings and every day styles for you to choose from.
