Frequently Asked Questions
Ask us anything. We are here to help.
Yes. Our diamonds are 100% real diamonds. They are organically grown in a lab and their chemical and atomic properties are the same as diamonds that come from the earth. The only way a trained gemologist can identify if a Couple diamond came from a lab versus a mine, is if they were given the unique identification number.
Same rocks, different habitats. Mined diamonds are dug up from deep within the earth. Ours are grown in the exact same conditions, but in a cutting-edge lab based in the US. We optimized the growing conditions to produce an identical raw diamond in a shorter period.
No. And neither are mined diamonds. We’ve replicated the process that happens underground in our lab, so it creates unique raw stones with the same imperfections you’d find in naturally mined stones. Just as a mined diamond, our lab-grown diamonds come out as raw stones that need to then be cut and polished.
Little known fact—the entire diamond grading process is subjective. We found inconsistencies amongst the largest third-party diamond grading organizations. We decided to start with IGI grading scales but add another layer of meticulousness to ensure the best presence. Two diamonds that may look the same on paper could have a drastically different appearance in person—that's where Couple comes in to determine the best of the best.
Unlike online competitors, we are not a marketplace. We don’t let third party wholesalers list their diamonds on our site, and only Couple diamonds are sold on our site. We do this because we have strict standards for our diamond engagement rings. In order to offer the highest quality diamonds, we vertically integrated our entire business. It took a lot of work, but we think it’s 100% worth the effort.
We tightly curated our ring styles and diamond sizes so you literally cannot go wrong with any decisions. Our brief to our jeweler (who has 25 years of design experience) was to create rings that were timeless and stunning. That said, please don’t hesitate and reach out if you are still undecided. We have a few tricks and questions to guide you.
Yes, we offer free resizing for 60 days.
We don’t currently offer insurance directly through Couple – check out our insurance guide here.
All of our rings are built and set in NYC.
Our diamonds are grown in our partner lab in the US.
We suggest going to a local jeweler in your city. If you run into any issues with traditional appraisers (who aren’t familiar with or are threatened by lab-grown diamonds), contact us and we can guide you in the right direction.
Unfortunately not. We take great pride in the quality of our diamonds and craftsmanship of our settings and have curated a broad collection of rings and wedding bands to meet the style and preferences of our customers.
All Couple diamonds include a certificate of authenticity from the International Gemological Institute (IGI) with a matching identification number microscopically laser-inscribed on the thin perimeter of the diamond.
Please connect with our diamond concierge. We are happy to provide another shape such as Oval, Pear and more.
Yes. Please contact us to get additional images of a specific ring.
We follow industry practice and use rhodium plating in order to give 18k white gold a pure white color.
The International Gemological Institute (IGI) is a leading third party diamond grading organization. Each IGI certificate is unique to your diamond and provides a diamond identification number that is laser-inscribed in your diamond.
We stand behind the quality and craftsmanship of our rings. If your Couple ring is damaged, a $50 deposit will be taken to cover the cost of shipping and an evaluation by our in-house jewelers. The deposit is refunded for all warrantied repairs or applied to approved repairs that are not covered under the lifetime warranty. If an uncovered repair is not approved, the deposit will be applied to the return shipping. If a warranty issue is found, we will gladly repair or replace the ring free of charge.
