Synthetic Diamond Policy:

The rise of Synthetic / Man-made Diamonds are starting to flood the market.  We at Lester Lampert do not support this trend and remain committed to Natural Diamonds.  The Natural Diamonds we sell are Ethically sourced & support many communities that otherwise would have no other means to a better way of life. 

All our diamond suppliers have been notified of our policy and have been asked to submit in writing guaranties that they will not supply or sell us Synthetic Diamonds.

Furthermore, Synthetic Diamonds have an unlimited supply chain versus the very limited supply of Natural Diamonds. We believe that Synthetic Diamonds will continue to decrease in value while Natural Diamonds will remain a viable commodity for holding value. 


  • Lester Lampert will not sell Synthetic Diamonds.
  • Lester Lampert reserves the right to not repair items that contain Synthetic Diamonds.
  • Lester Lampert reserves the right to not sell mountings for Synthetic Diamonds.
  • Lester Lampert reserves the right to not appraise items that contain Synthetic Diamonds.

For items that are inconclusive in testing, Lester Lampert reserves the right to decide on whether to proceed with taking in a repair, setting and/or appraising the item.
