This brilliance astonished us.
A lovely and pure beauty made possible by the crystallization of research and technology.
"We would like people to enjoy this 'new diamond jewelry'."
This strong desire was how SHINCA began.
Laboratory grown diamond
The greatest brilliance of diamonds created by nature has fascinated us throughout the ages.
And in modern times, impressive advancements in technology have led to the creation of new diamonds.
And this is precisely what Laboratory grown diamonds(synthetic diamonds) are.
With the only difference between the conditions under which they are created, Laboratory grown diamonds possess exactly the same elements and characteristics as natural diamonds and are nothing like imitations or simulants such as cubic zirconia. The 2 methods by which they are produced in cutting-edge labs and manufacturing bases are HPHT (High Pressure, High Temperature) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition). In other words, it has become possible to reproduce the authentic brilliance of diamonds above ground.
Sustainability into the future
The process of creating Laboratory grown diamonds is gentle on the environment and superior in terms of social harmony. It is also a sustainable production method which will allow a stable supply for the next generation, contributing to growth in the future.
SHINCA carefully selects materials for its jewelry to ensure users can enjoy it for many years of daily use.
Commitment to materials
SHINCA uses platinum or K18 (18 karat gold) as jewellery making material.
Gold and platinum with high purity are less likely to cause allergic reactions, but those with concerns about allergies are recommended to consult with a dermatologist for a "patch test".
K18 gold (18 karat gold)
Compared to K10 (10 karat gold), K18 is highly pure and therefore is resistant against discoloration.
Pure gold combined with copper results in pink gold.
It is gentle on the skin and gives a gorgeous impression.
In pursuit of radiance
At SHINCA we pursue brilliance in all of the Laboratory grown diamonds (synthetic diamonds) used in our jewelry collection.
