A Lab Grown Diamond is a real diamond that was created in a laboratory using cutting-edge technology under highly controlled conditions that replicate the Earth’s natural growth process of crystallising carbon. The only thing that makes a Lab Grown Diamond different from a natural diamond is its origin. The result is a Diamond that is chemically, physically, and optically the same as those grown beneath the Earth’s surface. They should not be confused with Diamond Simulants, Cubic Zirconia’s or Moissanite’s.
Lab Grown Diamonds adhere to the same 4C’s that mined diamonds do. A diamond is graded using the 4c’s – cut, clarity, colour, and carat. Diamond graders judge the diamond on how well it has been cut down from its raw form into a jewel, how flawless and clear it is, and its size.
Less Expensive: The price of Lab Grown Diamonds tend to be less than Mined Diamonds. However, this does not mean that Lab Grown Diamonds are “cheap.” 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, meaning you can get a larger diamond that fits within your budget. If you are looking to maximize your budget without compromising on quality and sparkle, then a LGD is worth considering.
As Lab Grown Diamonds are created within a laboratory it avoids the pitfalls of diamond mining practices that harm the environment.
