About Lab Grown Diamonds

What are Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab grown diamonds are manufactured in a lab setting. They mimic the precise natural process that produces earth mined diamonds while costing up to 40% less.

Are Lab Grown Diamonds Real Diamonds?

Yes! They are identical to earth mined diamonds in every manner except that they are developed in a lab from a diamond seed rather than being extracted from the soil. Diamonds are almost completely composed of pure carbon. As a result, both lab grown and earth mined diamonds have the same physical attributes.

How are Lab Grown Diamonds Made?

Lab grown diamonds are manufactured mimicking the way natural diamonds are formed deep in the Earth’s crust. A diamond “seed” is placed in a piece of carbon under intense pressure. A diamond is then formed around this “diamond seed.” Lab grown diamonds typically take a month or so to grow, while the process where diamonds are formed naturally takes millions of years.

When viewed by the naked eye, lab grown diamonds are indistinguishable from mined diamonds but can exhibit better features. Only a professional using high-tech equipment can differentiate between the two.

Nature formed diamonds under intense heat and pressure about 100 miles below the earth’s surface, with most having formed over a billion years ago. The fact is, all of the natural diamonds that will ever exist have already been created. This makes natural diamonds rare and expensive compared to manufactured diamonds. Rarity and price is the biggest difference.

Lab grown diamonds are eco-friendly, ethically sourced, and manufactured with care. Meanwhile, mined diamonds have many controversies regarding their production. Diamond mining requires a lot of resources and can wreak havoc on the environment. There are also cases where diamonds are mined illegally using child labor or bonded labor in Africa. Earth mined diamonds require a certificate stating they are not sourced unethically. There are no such controversies with lab grown diamonds. What’s more, lab grown diamonds are 20-40% cheaper than mined diamonds with the same 4C features of Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat.

Just like mined diamonds, lab grown diamonds undergo grading and certification using a similar process adhering to the 4Cs of Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat.
