An estimated 26 percent of American couples who will get engaged this year will do so between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. As a rule of thumb, men will spend two months of their annual salaries on diamond engagement rings. The average purchase is a 1-carat diamond costing around $5,000; the equivalent Pure Grown Diamond would be $3,000. That is $2000 left over to use towards a honeymoon or a down payment on a house.

Pure Grown Diamonds (www.puregrowndiamonds.com)
are grown in semiconductor-grade facilities located in developed
countries using a process called Microwave Plasma Chemical Vapor
Deposition (MPCVD). In both processes, a small diamond seed is placed in
an environment that contains carbon. Under suitably controlled
conditions, the diamond grows, atom-by-atom, layer-by-layer, recreating
nature's process. After 10-12 weeks, a real diamond is formed and are
cut and polished by experts using the same tools and technology as with
mined diamonds. These diamonds are also certified and graded by the same
laboratories as with mined diamonds, using the same criteria for
quality – cut, carat, color, and clarity.
