Shop Our Diamonds

So, why is our pricing so amazing?

Our team has over 100+ years of combined diamond jewelry experience. We are jewelers, not MBA’s. With that knowledge comes better sourcing and ultimately better prices.

We were also one of the first eCommerce stores to offer only 100% lab-grown diamonds and only online. This reduces our overhead and lets us pass on the savings to you.

Plus, by using 100% lab-grown diamonds in all of our products, we ensure that your purchase is 100% conflict-free and up to 40% less than a piece of jewelry made using mined stones.

About Clean Origin

Founded by Alexander Weindling, third-generation diamantaire and former global managing director for Georg Jensen; Ryan Bonifacino, former chief marketing officer and digital VP of Alex and Ani; and Terry Burman, who served as CEO for Signet Jewelers, Sterling Jewelers and chairman Zale Corporation. This group of diamond and jewelry veterans know a thing or two about the industry and saw a new-age of diamonds in lab grown. In fact, at Clean Origin, you won’t find any mined diamonds in any product. From the large center stones to the accent diamonds lining the band of a pave ring, each stone is 100% man made. Clean Origin is also 100% online and is able to offer extremely competitive pricing because of this reason.
