They say that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but it's hard to keep up with said best friend when she's such a pricy commodity.
If owning a diamond ring has always been out of your budget, you'll be pleased to know that SK Jewellery is currently selling eco-friendly Star Carat Diamond rings from just S$2,899.
As with shopping for clothes, bags or shoes, now you can truly live out your carat dreams without breaking the bank.
But wait, what are Star Carat Diamonds?
Star Carat Diamonds are lab-grown diamonds that are produced with new technology that has undergone over 60 years of intensive research and development.
Because there is no longer a need to dig precious Earth to obtain these carats, this method of diamond-making is much more sustainable and affordable, costing up to 50 per cent less than mined diamonds.
That's why while the market rate for a one-carat mined diamond can easily start from S$15,000, a Star Carat Diamond can be yours from just S$2,899.
Star Carat diamonds are real diamonds
Those who are wondering if Star Carat diamonds are “real” diamonds need not worry either.
This is because lab-grown diamonds and mined diamonds are made up of the exact same properties and do not differ visually.
In fact, you'll be able to get an even bigger and brighter diamond ring with SK Jewellery's range of fancy setting designs.

If you’re looking for something that is unique and not too pricey (relatively speaking), blue diamonds would make for a great and memorable Christmas gift.
