Leading Online Jeweller Gifts a 3-carat Diamond to UK Children’s Cancer Charity



There is no denying the importance of giving to charity, but ComparetheDiamond.com, a leading diamond and jewellery manufacturer and pure play eCommerce retailer, took things a few steps further.

ComparetheDiamond.com gifted Children with Cancer UK with a large, impressive lab-grown 3-carat certificated diamond, with a retail value of a whopping £15,000

The gifted diamond is a magnificent, radiant cut that anyone would be impressed by. It’s a new generation lab-grown 3-carat radiant cut diamond, at colour F with VS2 clarity. This diamond lights the room and makes a big, big statement. If the diamond had been mined rather than lab-grown, it would retail north of £100,000.

Affordable lab-grown diamonds are not the only benefit of this new generation process. Indeed, younger consumers are breaking away from traditionally mined diamonds because of the environmental and humanitarian toll of extracting them. If a diamond of this size and quality were traditionally mined, close to 750 tonnes of rock would have been destroyed. By choosing to gift a lab-grown alternative, ComparetheDiamond.com has made a saving of circa 1,500 kilos of greenhouse gases in comparison to a mined diamond.

Children with Cancer UK raised £9,000 for the diamond from ComparetheDiamond.com during its annual ball hosted by Gabby Roslin at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Saturday, 12th November. Children with Cancer UK Ball was a star-studded event with impressive prizes and spectacular live performances from Tony Hadley, Lulu, Bananarama and Dynamo. Undoubtedly, the diamond caused quite a buzz on the night.

Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer and part of Princess Diana’s legacy, as she helped the O’Gorman family to found it in 1988. The ball was thrown as a fundraising and awareness event after a two-year covid break, and the money raised will help fund life-saving childhood cancer research so that more children with cancer not only survive but thrive.
