WHAT IS KARAAT'S JEWELRY MADE OF?
All our jewelry is made with 18-karat recycled, solid gold and labgrown diamonds.
Our diamonds are grown in selected laboratories that recreate the same conditions that form diamonds underground. Physically, they are exactly like mined diamonds and are graded similarly. Labgrown diamonds are a more sustainable and completely conflict-free option for natural ones and can be easily traced back to their origin.
Because pure gold (24-karat) is much too soft to wear as jewelry, other metals are added to it to enhance its durability. It’s about striking the perfect balance between the warmth and purity of gold and adding just enough alloy to ensure the jewelry’s longevity, or to give it a particular hue (like white or rose gold).

WHERE IS KARAAT'S JEWELRY MADE?
All of KARAAT’s jewelry is designed in Finland and handmade in Milan, Italy and Antwerp, Belgium. All our pieces arrive to us straight from our goldsmiths, meaning we can work closely with our makers and create beautiful pieces perfecting them down to the last detail.
CAN I GET A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY?
Yes! All our pieces include a certificate of authenticity made by KARAAT as standard.
For some pieces, you can order a third party jewelry certification from our partner HRD Antwerp.
All engagement and wedding rings with a center stone 0.5ct or larger come with a third party certificate from HRD Antwerp free of charge.
WHAT'S THE QUALITY OF YOUR DIAMONDS?
The quality of our lab-grown diamonds is highest possible. For our Wedding & Engagement collection we currently offer multiple options for you to choose from:
Good quality with a clarity of VS or higher and color H-I or higher. With this quality, the diamond might have some minimal visible inclusions, but is still a higher-than-average quality of a stone. You might notice other jewelers offering lower quality than this, but we want to deliver best possible sparkle and have thus chosen not to have options lower than this.
High quality with VS clarity and D-D-F color. This quality might have some minimal inclusions in the stone, but has the brightest possible color and sparkle.
Exclusive quality with VVS clarity and D-F color. Choose this option if you want the purest, best possible quality diamond and do not want to make any exceptions in sparkle or brilliance! Quality does not get higher than this.
DO ANY KARAAT PIECES CONTAIN NICKEL?
No - we only use 18-karat recycled gold in our jewelry.
