Lab Grown Diamonds

With the increase in popularity of lab grown diamonds, it is important for consumers to become educated on the perceived differences of mined diamonds vs lab grown diamonds. This guide will help you understand everything you need to know about lab grown diamonds when considering your next diamond purchase.

What is a Lab Grown Diamond?

A lab grown diamond is a real diamond created in a laboratory under a highly controlled environment to replicate the Earth’s natural growth process of crystallising carbon.  Lab grown diamonds have the same chemical composition, molecular and physical structure as well as the optical properties of mined diamonds. They also adhere to the same 4Cs that mined diamonds do – carat, colour, clarity and cut and exhibit the same visual properties of scintillation and sparkle.

Why choose a Lab Grown Diamond?

Affordability: Lab grown diamonds are significantly less expensive than mined diamonds, meaning you can get a larger diamond that fits within your budget. It simply costs less to grow a diamond in a lab than it does to mine a diamond from the earth, allowing those savings to be passed onto the customer. If you are looking to maximize your budget without compromising on quality and sparkle, then a lab grown diamond is worth considering.

Eco-Friendly: As lab grown diamonds are created in a laboratory, it avoids the pitfalls of diamond mining practices that harm the environment.
