ALTR Created Diamonds

Wondering what all the excitement about our ALTR Created Diamonds is for? Let us tell you a little a bit about them…

Matthews Jewellers are committed to providing our customers with the best quality diamonds for the best price which is why we are proud to be the key stockist of ALTR (pron. “alter”) Created Diamonds in the Hunter region.


ALTR Created Diamonds are identical to mined diamonds, with the same physical, optical and chemical properties however they have been grown above the earth's surface rather than below. Created Diamonds are not only socially responsible (because they do not require mining), but also make it possible to have a larger and higher grade of diamond for the same investment!

ALTR Created Diamonds are cut, polished and graded to the same standards as mined diamonds and carry certifications from the Gem Certification and Assurance Lab (GCAL), one of the strictest diamond laboratories in the world. GCAL Laboratory Reports are far more comprehensive than standard diamond certificates.

These beautiful diamonds have fewer defects and less strain in the crystal structure, making them appear clearer, brighter and whiter.
