What Is a Lab-Grown Diamond?

What Is a Lab-Grown Diamond?

Lab grown diamonds are diamonds that have been “grown” in a controlled laboratory setting. They’re comprised of the same chemical components you'll find in natural diamonds (carbon atoms arranged in a specific pattern) but instead of being formed deep in the earth’s crust, lab made diamonds are created in a laboratory. Because lab grown diamonds are chemically the same as natural earth made diamonds, they are virtually indistinguishable in terms of appearance, quality and durability.

Lab grown diamond technology for industrial uses has been around for over 50 years, but within the last decade there have been impressive developments in quality and price, meaning these lab grown stones can now be used in jewellery, too.

Lab-grown diamonds are often called synthetic diamonds, cultured diamonds, engineered diamonds, and even man-made diamonds. They share the same chemical makeup and physical structure as natural diamonds and they are optically identical. While natural diamonds take millions of years to form, scientists can create a one-carat lab-grown diamond in a lab in two weeks. 
 
A lab-grown diamond is not a simulated diamond. Stones like moissanite, cubic zirconia, or white sapphire—all diamond simulants—have different chemical makeup and are diamond imitations. 

Lab diamonds are real diamonds. They contain the same cubic crystalline form of pure carbon that is also found in natural diamonds. Both natural and lab diamonds offer the same visual and chemical qualities, bringing long-lasting brilliance to any piece of high-quality jewellery.

Why we choose Lab grown diamond?

Good Value for money:
Lab Grown Diamonds have the same chemical and physical properties as mined diamonds.
But It's up to 50% off compare with them.

 
Ethical
Diamond mining’s history of plunder and unethical work practices were followed by fresher concerns that “blood diamonds” were being used to fund military actions in war zones. 

''Lab grown diamond is created in the laboratory, it is not makes any kind of unethical process.''
 
 
Environmentally friendly
Now pressure over the climate crisis is beginning to grow from campaign groups.
The full toll in planet-warming emissions from the mining and transportation of diamonds has cause the damage of our planet.
 
Lab grown diamond are two ways to create in the laboratory: HPHT (High pressure High Temperature) and CVD (Chemical vapor deposition).
These two methods are not causing environmental damage.
LAB NOTES: The differences between Lab-Grown & Natural diamonds
Shopping for diamond or lab-grown diamond jewelry should be a fun experience: celebrating a birthday, marking a milestone, gifting to a special friend, or buying a first-day-on-the-job piece of perfection. But there’s a lot of information to unpack before you add to cart that can impact both your budget and bling.

Before you tackle the 4C’s of diamonds (cut, clarity, color, and carat), it’s important to understand all of your glittering options—namely the difference between buying a natural vs. lab-grown diamond. Not only is lab-grown diamond jewelry a welcome addition to your collection, but it is also a cost-effective option that means you can expand your arsenal of awe-inspiring styles. 

Another fun fact: If you’re comparing lab-grown versus natural diamonds side by side, you won’t be able to tell the difference. The same goes if you closely examine the stone with a jeweler’s loupe, which typically has a 10x magnification. A diamond’s identity as a lab-grown stone can only be determined by gemological experts using specialized instruments to pick up trace elements and other signatures related to the way the diamonds are grown.

Shopping for diamond rings, necklaces, or earrings: You will have lots of fun choices like picking the diamond shape, size, color, and setting.
