Neil Lane’s latest designs for Kay Jewelers echo his typical design hallmarks but exclusively feature lab-grown diamonds.
Akron, Ohio—Neil Lane is hopping on the lab-grown diamond bandwagon.  
Customers who have shopped Neil Lane designs at Kay Jewelers can now find an entire collection of the designer’s wares at the Signet-owned jewelry store chain that exclusively feature lab-grown diamonds.  
The collection is called “Neil Lane Artistry.” 
“For the past 13 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kay to design collections that are inspired but also accessible to jewelry lovers across the country, not just Hollywood,” Lane said. 
“With my new Artistry collection at Kay, we now offer an even larger variety for consumers to find something they’ll love and cherish for a lifetime.”

As of press time, 21 Neil Lane Artistry styles were featured on the Kay Jewelers website, with six traditional engagement ring styles and 15 bands. 

The center stones in the engagement rings are independently certified, Kay said, and, just like the natural diamonds in other Neil Lane for Kay designs, all the lab-grown diamonds in the Artistry collection are also responsibly sourced and conflict-free. 
Each online product prominently features the term “Lab-Created Diamond” in the product title.
