Our Products We offer four main product categories in addition to a full custom department, which can create anything your imagination can dream up. Our jewelry is available in 14k white or yellow gold, or by special order in 18k gold or platinum. For more information on custom jewelry, see page 12.

Our Diamond Simulant Product is a virtual exact optical and physical match to a mined diamond — it looks identical and wears identically — but the chemistry is different: it is not pure carbon. No one in the world can tell that your Diamond Nexus is not a mined diamond without scientific testing.

Our Lorian Platinum product line offers you a unique opportunity to experience the cool, crisp radiance of platinum without the pure platinum price. A revolutionary alloy blend forms the base of this product which is then bonded with five interlocked layers of pure 950 grade platinum, guaranteed for life never to wear off. All you see, all you feel…is platinum.

Our Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire Product doesn’t just look like the real thing; it is the real thing. These gems are exactly the same as gemstones mined from the earth, only lab-created gems are uniformly perfect and flawless. Our created ruby, emerald, and sapphire products are the exact optical, physical and chemical duplicates of natural mined gemstones.

Our Loose Stones are available in our Classic Series, priced from $99 per carat, and our Signature Series® which are available starting at $149 per carat. You can learn more about our Signature Series Gemstones on page 11. All of our loose stones are available in a wide variety of carat sizes, from tiny accent stones to large multi-carat showpieces. Each loose stone you select will arrive in a beautiful glass-topped presentation box, with mounting and stone information included.

Our Commitment to the Environment The green movement is underway! But in the jewelry industry, this is easier said than done. The devastating effect of diamond and gold mining on the environment is well documented. In many underdeveloped parts of the world, mining corporations exploit weak governments and lax environmental laws to strip mine and chemically extract diamonds and gold from the earth. These destructive processes often leave behind a poisoned, dead landscape, not to mention the exploitation of workers who are often unfairly treated. We do not believe that beauty should come at this dear a price. Instead we offer this as a way of doing business:

Our Diamond Nexus gemstones are created in clean laboratories using environmentally friendly processes.

No harsh, environmentally dangerous chemicals are used.

• Excess materials from production are melted down and reused. •

In all cases possible, we use recycled gold and gold findings. We obtain additionally needed gold from Canadian sources, which are the most well-regulated and environmentally safe sources available.

The paper used in our catalog is recycled, FSC certified.

Our inks are soy based

Our catalog is printed using wind energy credits.

How Can You Evaluate Our Products? It is hard to evaluate a product unless you first start with what you know. Chances are you already know a lot about diamonds. Diamonds are generally evaluated by assessing the 4 C’s: Clarity, Color, Cut, and Carat Weight. - Clarity describes the purity of a diamond. This is determined by the number, size, nature, and location of the internal inclusions and external imperfections. The highest purity rating attainable is IF (internally flawless). All of our stones are IF rated. - Color describes the amount of color a diamond contains. The color scale ranges from absolutely colorless (D color) which is the most perferred, all the way down to colors that can be quite gray and muddy looking. In addition to white stones, diamonds can come in some pretty intense colors called “fancy colors” which can be yellow, red, pink, blue, and even green. But when most people think of a diamond, they are thinking of the traditional white diamond. All of our stones are D color.

- Cut speaks to the way a diamond’s proportions are created. It is really quite mathematical. A perfectly cut diamond will yield the most fire and brilliance. In the jewelry industry, there is an ideal cut formula which was first developed by Marcel Tolkowsky, a Belgian diamond cutter and engineer who in 1919 developed this optimal cut to bring out the most fire in a diamond. Take a look at “The Art of Gemstone Cutting” on page 8 to learn more about this cut called “Hearts and Arrows.” All of our stones are cut to the same standards and exacting measurements first developed by Marcel Tolkowsky. - Carat is the unit of weight for a diamond. In nature, large diamonds are much rarer than small ones, so they will come with a much higher price tag. A three carat stone may be priced as high as twenty times the price of a one carat stone. Diamond Nexus gemstones are not subject to this issue of size scarcity: all of our stones carry the same per-carat price.

The Art of Gemstone Cutting The Hearts & Arrows Pattern, achieved in every Diamond Nexus gemstone, is the product of our ultimate quest for beauty. The hard science and laboratory research that is done by our technicians has one singular result: the creation of a tremendously hard crystalline material with virtually identical optical properties to mined diamonds. However, our labs produce the same thing that mother nature does when creating a diamond: a rough, uncut, raw stone. Releasing the fire, brilliance, and beauty of the stone, requires the artistry of a worldclass gemcutter. A perfectly cut gemstone refracts light in a very specific way. If the faceting angles and transitions exactly match the Ideal Cut Formula, first set down by Marcel Tolkowsky in 1919, the stone will refract a dazzling pattern when viewed under a diamond scope: “Hearts and Arrows” for a Round Cut and “Starred Cross” for the Princess Cut. In the diamond world, less than 2% of all diamonds reach the Ideal Cut Standard. That is why true “Hearts and Arrows” diamonds are priced at such an incredible premium. At Diamond Nexus Labs, all of our gemstones achieve the ideal cut standard and will display flawless Hearts and Arrows and Starred Cross patterns. We simply cannot call ourselves strivers for perfection and offer anything less.

Classic Series Gemstones Loose stones are available in our Classic Series, priced from $99 per carat, or our Signature Series Gemstones® available starting at $149 per carat. All our loose stones are available in a wide variety of carat sizes, from tiny accent stones to large multi-carat showpieces. Our loose stones come packaged in beautiful glass-topped

presentation boxes, and include all mounting and stone information. Setting Services - Our jewelers can mount your Diamond Nexus loose stone in your existing setting for a very reasonable cost. Please call for pricing and details.

Asscher Cut: a beautifully unique, antique cut developed in the early 1900’s. The beauty of this elegant cut is that it draws the eye deep into the stone’s center, which is the exact opposite of modern gem cuts in which the facets repel the eye in the name of brilliance.

Emerald Cut: a step cut with broad, flat planed facets. The emerald cut shows less brilliance and dispersion (fire) than the other brilliant cut diamonds, but it has a classic elegance preferred by many. Its large, open table highlights a stone’s clarity.

Oval Cut: very similar to a round except it is elliptical. Invented in the early 1960s, this shape has a bigger surface area than a round with the same carat weight, and therefore is an excellent option for those looking for the brilliance of the round in a larger size.

Triangle Cut: a stepped facet cut in the shape of a wedge. Used in a variety of heart-stirring jewelry, but most often commands center stage in ladies pendants.

Cushion Cut: a romantic antique cut also known as the pillow cut. Popular since 1830, the beauty of this cut is in the depth of the jewel, as well as its luxurious breadth which makes the stone appear larger.

Pear Cut: this popular cut with a single point and rounded end looks like a tear drop. The unique look and the difficulty in executing the cut have long made it a favorite of royalty.

Round Brilliant Cut: the most popular, researched, and classic of all cuts. Generally, a 58 facet cut with proportions designed to maximize brilliance and dispersion (fire). When cut to perfect Ideal Cut standards, it’s the most brilliant of cuts and will show beautiful “Hearts & Arrows.”

Trillion Cut: a dazzling and versatile triangle shape with truncated corners. One of the more unusual cuts, it displays a very sharp brilliance. Its large, well-proportioned surface area results in a big look: a one-carat trillion will look as large as a one-and-a-half carat round gemstone.

Radiant Cut: a beautiful combination of the classic elegance of the emerald cut and the sparkle of the round brilliant. Similar to a princess, but with a rectangular outline and blocked corners like those of an emerald cut. The Radiant cut is dramatic as a solitaire but also looks great paired with side staging stones such as baguettes, trillions, or princess shapes.

Princess Cut: square in shape with pointed corners, this cut is second in popularity to the round brilliant. With 76 facets, it is very brilliant and full of fire. A very popular engagement ring choice.

Marquise Cut: a brilliant cut stone with a unique shape that, like the trillion cut, can maximize carat weight giving you the appearance of a much larger stone. Often set with round or pear shaped side stones it can lend a slender, long look to the hand.

Heart Cut: the ultimate symbol of love. Its rounded pavilion gives it the heightened brilliance of a round cut gem, while the pointed bottom and curved arches at the top complete the shape with symmetry and romantic sparkle.


Signature Series® Gemstones Our Signature Series® gemstones represent the utmost perfection in diamond simulant creation. The Signature Series gems are subjected to incredibly rigorous standards, resulting in extraordinary precision and quality. Each stone is laser inscribed with a unique Maker’s Mark, serving as the gemstone designer’s and cutter’s personal signature and certification that the stone is perfect in every aspect. Each Signature Series® Gemstone, either purchased as a loose gem, or mounted in our jewelry, will arrive with an American International Gemologists (AIG) Certification and Diamond Simulant Grading Report documenting the exact specifications and characteristics of your individual gemstone.

All Signature Series® Gemstones can be custom laser inscribed with whatever information you desire: names, dates, a favorite quote or memory. Only your imagination is the limit. Previously, only the most prestigious jewelry houses, such as Cartier, Tiffany and Harry Winston, offered personal diamond inscription services; even then only on their custom, multi-carat showpieces. Your inscription will not affect the brilliance of your Diamond Nexus Gemstone, and will only be visible under magnification.* When you gaze into the depths of your beautiful, sparkling gem, only you and your love will know that a private message is reflected in each brilliant facet. *With every personally inscribed gemstone, you will receive an enlarged, laminated image of your inscription which will clearly show your personal and everlasting message.

1 - All Signature Series Gemstones are Laser Inscribed with the unique AIG Certification Number that certifies the Authenticity, Grade, and Quality of your Lab-Created Diamond Simulant. 2 - Unique Maker’s Mark denoting the individual Gem Design & Cutting Team responsible for your stone. 3 - Your Diamond Nexus can be personally, eternally, laser inscribed with your own special message.

Custom Jewelry Your imagination is the only boundary! Your favorite celebrity’s engagement ring… A duplicate of a family heirloom… A customized gift for someone special… The Nexus Design Studio gives you the opportunity to discover a piece of jewelry that exists solely in your imagination. The Studio is one of the most capable jewelry design and fabrication operations in America. Using our state of the art facility and technology, our team of world-class designers, metal smiths, and jewelry artisans can design and create any imaginable jewelry piece. Own a one-of-a-kind engagement ring, anniversary band, or other jewelry piece that captures your own unique sense of style. From simple elegance to over the top glamour…your imagination is the only boundary.

How Does It Work And What Does It Cost? You will work one-on-one with both a Custom Jewelry Consultant and a Jewelry Designer. Your team will work with you to capture every detail of the jewelry piece you are envisioning. The Nexus Design Studio can exactly re-create any jewelry piece from a picture or drawing, or your design team will work with you in an open, relaxed fashion to help you to translate your vision and ideas first to a design on paper, and then to finished reality. You will review the evolution of your jewelry piece through detailed CAD (Computer Aided Design) renderings and completely realistic three-dimensional images. Not until you are utterly satisfied with the design do we move forward and create the finished masterpiece. Working with our brilliant lab-created precious gemstones, the cost of your custom jewelry is very attainable. Most one-of-a-kind engagement rings are designed to your specifications, $2500 or less: an extraordinary value for what will become an heirloom to be passed down through generations.

How long does it take? Your jewelry piece will be an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind masterpiece, and the intricate work involved takes time. Once production on your jewelry piece begins, it will take two to three weeks to complete and be shipped to you. We want every detail of your jewelry precisely as you want it, thus we encourage you to spend as much time consulting with our artisans and designers as you need. After all that, if you are not 100% thrilled with the final product for any reason, all custom creations are covered by our 30 day return policy with nothing but a 15% materials fee and the original CAD fee (when applicable).

I’m interested, how do I learn more? Simply call our Custom Jewelry Consultants today at 877-202-9044 with your idea, and they will guide you through the custom process in an easy to understand manner. You can also email us at customjewelry@diamondnexuslabs.com and we will answer your questions or contact you within 24 hours, Mon.-Fri. While pictures or rough sketches assist the custom process, even vague ideas can direct us enough to work with you, creating the jewelry you envision.

Two pathways to follow in Custom Design: 1 - Full Custom Design This is the best course when trying to replicate an existing design from a picture or a design that exists solely in your imagination. The only limits to a full custom design is your vision. Guided at every step by our skilled consultants, you will review a detailed blueprint and a Computer Aided Design (CAD) rendering of your jewelry piece before we create the finished jewelry.

CAD renderings of a completed custom design. Our on-site designers can help to make your dreams a reality.

2 - DreamBook Design The second path to take is to order a jewelry piece from our Diamond Nexus Labs “DreamBook” Custom Catalog. Savings can be realized with this option because the mold to create the jewelry already exists and does not need to be made from scratch. Sometimes you may know you want something different and unique, but you may not have a clear idea of exactly what your vision for your jewelry is. The “DreamBook” Catalog is perfect for that situation. The catalog is a 762 page celebration of over ten thousand individual ring and pendant designs. From simple elegance to the most glamorous, outrageous creations, the DreamBook Catalog is likely to have a design to match your vision and budget. All of the designs in the DreamBook have specific information on ring dimensions, weights, costs, etc. Most of the designs in the DreamBook Catalog can be modified to your preferred specifications. There is truly a wellspring of ideas contained within.

With over 10,000 designs, our DreamBook® is a great starting point for custom ideas.

What do customers say? We have so many amazing customer testimonials, it is almost embarassing. You can view a lot of that feedback on our website. We use an outside third party firm to verify the truth of our testimonials before we post them on the site. Here is a sample. Just received my new Luna ring and I am thrilled. I lost the diamond out of my original engagement ring a few weeks ago – it was my husband’s grandmother’s ring – I had worn it for 44 years and I cried a bunch, but decided to try one of your rings before replacing my original diamond. The new ring is stylish, fits perfectly and I don’t have to worry about it as it has such a great guarantee. I chose the smallest diamond for this setting and I am glad I did as I think anything bigger would have been too much. Thanks again for my beautiful ring and your super service! Judith Orr Gananoque, Ontario Canada

The customer service level at Diamond Nexus Labs has been nothing short of outstanding. When I had a sizing exchange... no questions asked. My replacement ring was shipped out with blinding speed! The service agents on the phone have always been very pleasant and helpful. They actually seem to enjoy helping people. As a manager of a business which prides itself on 38 years of service excellence, I know good service when I find it. Thank you and your staff for making me feel that my business is appreciated! Richard Wrenn Virginia Beach, VA USA

Just wanted to express many thanks on behalf of myself and my now fiancee. The engagement ring I ordered was delivered very quickly, packaged very well and looked almost as stunning in the beautiful box as it does now on her finger. As soon as we learned about you we knew right away that we wanted to purchase one of your rings rather than deal with a local retailer. My fiancee and I are ever grateful for both your great service and your ethical, affordable, top quality diamonds and rings. Thank you so much for the perfect ring that helped make our engagement so special. Cheers, Jonathan Roode Halifax, Nova Scotia

With just the slightest hint of elusive lavender to enrich its heavenly hue, this jewel is sure to captivate your heart from the first glance. Fun fact: the blue diamond is so scarce that a flawless vivid blue stone weighing 7.03 carats was recently sold by Sotheby’s for $9.49 million, the highest price per carat ever paid for any gemstone at auction.

COL LEC T I ON Ruby • Emerald • Sapphire Bold, deep, and passionate: the rich, intoxicating colors of rubies, emeralds, and sapphires have enchanted countless civilizations for millennia. As symbols of love, royalty, vitality, and mystery, these precious gemstones bring life and splendor to every setting. In their most exceptional form, they are rarer than diamonds and valued at thousands of dollars per carat. Our laboratory-grown rubies, emeralds, and sapphires are absolutely perfect matches – physically, optically, and chemically – to their mined counterparts.
