Lab grown diamonds
Lab grown diamonds are chemically identical to natural diamonds and can be more affordable options.
What Are Lab Grown Diamonds ?
Lab grown diamonds (also known as lab created diamonds, man made diamonds, engineered diamonds, and cultured diamonds) are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes, scientists grow lab grown diamonds that duplicate the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the Earth’s crust. These lab created diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since natural diamonds and lab created diamonds share the same material, they exhibit the same optical and chemical properties.
How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Made?
We create our lab grown diamonds from the tiny carbon seeds of pre-existing diamonds. Advanced technology, either extreme pressure and heat or a special deposition process known as CVD, mimics the method of natural diamond formation. After their growth, some man made diamonds created through deposition may also undergo pressure and heat treatment. The formation of man made fancy colored diamonds occurs when small amounts of specific trace elements are present during the growth phase, similar to the process in nature. In both white and fancy colored man made diamonds, the exact composition of trace elements may differ from their natural diamond counterparts. Specialized equipment capable of detecting the minor differences in trace elements and crystal growth is necessary to distinguish man made diamonds from natural diamonds.
Lab Grown Diamonds vs. Natural Diamonds
Our lab grown diamonds share the same physical, chemical, and optical characteristics as natural diamonds, and they showcase the same fire, scintillation, and sparkle. When observed under a jewelry loupe, it is nearly impossible to differentiate lab created diamonds from natural diamonds. While lab created diamonds may contain different trace elements compared to natural diamonds, these differences do not impact the diamond’s appearance. Specialized equipment is required to differentiate lab created diamonds from natural diamonds. When purchasing lab created diamonds, it is important to ensure they come with a gem certification that identifies them as laboratory grown.
What Are The Benefits of Lab Grown Diamonds?
A lab-created diamond is just as real as a mined diamond. It possesses the same physical and chemical properties and grows under the same temperature and pressure conditions. However, lab-created diamonds avoid the conflicts and questionable ethical practices that are prevalent in some diamond mines. In fact, lab-created diamonds often exhibit superior quality because of the highly controlled environment and meticulously monitored process.
How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Certified And Graded?
We treat all lab grown diamonds the same way we treat mined diamonds. Once they reach their readiness, we send them to an independent gem lab where an expert certifies them. The process of grading lab grown diamonds follows the same criteria as traditional diamonds, focusing on the cut, clarity, carat, and color of each gemstone. The cut determines the brilliance of the diamond and is arguably the most crucial factor. Clarity assesses the appearance and absence of cracks and defects. When referring to clear diamonds, a higher grade indicates less color. Finally, carat measures the size and weight of the diamond. Each diamond undergoes careful examination and receives a quality rating. A piece of diamond jewelry can serve as a wonderful gift for yourself or someone you love. Diamonds offer great versatility and can be worn as everyday jewelry or for special occasions. When you opt for a lab grown diamond, you invest in a high-quality and stunning piece that is also ethical and environmentally friendly.
Some of the biggest advantages of a lab created diamond include:
- More beautiful due to better, brighter quality and higher purity
- Fewer defects
- Environmentally friendly
- Greater affordability
- Colors that are rarely found in nature can be created, making unique and coveted pieces more obtainable
- Trackable origin sources allow you to source diamonds from reputable places that don’t engage in poor treatment of workers or communities
lab grown price is lower than natural diamonds ad they offer excellent value without compromising on quality or elegance
Lab Grown diamonds are made in a Lab within a time span of 1 or 2 months.
- Lab grown diamonds are Mass-produced in Diamond Labs across the globe.
- Eco-Friendly as compared to natural By reducing the need for mining, land disturbance, and water usage.
natural diamond is priced higher with a resale value – resale value depends on the specifications.
Are formed Naturally and it takes the billions of years to form in the lower mantle of the earths core before being pushed to the earths surface through deep volcanic eruptions.
- Formed naturally in earths mental or made by mother nature.
- Prices are stable and increasing
