So why should you buy Lab Diamonds? Let's break down the most common Lab Grown Diamond FAQs. 

Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds?

Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds made of pure carbon. Lab grown diamonds are chemically identical to traditional mined diamonds, and have the same optical physical properties as natural diamonds. It is virtually impossible to tell by the naked eye the difference between a mined and lab grown diamond. However, lab grown diamond should not be confused with moissanite or cubic zirconia, which are made from different chemical compositions.

What is the difference between lab and natural diamonds?

The primary difference between lab grown diamonds and mined diamonds lies in their origin and production process. Lab grown diamonds are created in a controlled laboratory environment using advanced technology, while mined diamonds are naturally formed deep within the Earth’s crust and are extracted through mining processes.

How are lab grown diamonds made?

Lab grown diamonds are made by two primary methods: High Pressure-High Temperature and Chemical Vapor Deposition. Both methods allow for precise control of diamond growth parameters, resulting in diamonds with high purity and quality. After the diamonds are grown, they may undergo additional treatments and processes, such as cutting, polishing, and grading.

Why should I buy a lab grown diamond?

Lab grown diamonds are becoming more and more popular because they are a far cheaper option to the traditional mined diamonds without compromising on quality or durability.  Thanks to advances in technology, lab-grown diamonds are virtually indistinguishable from their mined counterparts in terms of brilliance, sparkle, and durability. With the same chemical composition and optical properties as natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds offer uncompromising quality and beauty that will stand the test of time.

Lab grown diamonds offer a sustainable and ethical alternative to mined diamonds, produced through innovative technological processes that replicate the natural conditions required for diamond formation. Unlike mined diamonds, which may be associated with conflict and human rights abuses, lab grown diamonds are guaranteed to be conflict-free. By opting for lab-grown diamonds, you can wear your jewelry with peace of mind, knowing that it was produced in an ethical and responsible manner.

Are lab grown diamonds certified?

Why are lab grown diamonds so much cheaper than traditional mined diamonds?

With lower production costs and no premium associated with rarity, lab-grown diamonds are priced more affordably, making them accessible to a wider range of consumers. The process of growing diamonds in a laboratory is much more cost-effective than mining diamonds from the earth. Natural mined diamonds are also much more rare, resulting in higher prices.
