Everything You Need To Know About Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab grown diamonds have the same radiance and brilliance as natural diamonds for a fraction of the price. These stunning gemstones are chemically equivalent to natural diamonds and can be a less costly option for jewelry connoisseurs.

Ethical Jewels

Shop responsibly and buy lab grown diamonds. Since no mining is required, these gemstones are cruelty-free when they arrive at jewelry stores.

Timeless Beauty

Lab grown diamonds look and feel just like genuine diamonds. They closely resemble the physical, chemical, and visual properties of mined diamonds.


Lab grown diamonds are an excellent value, with prices ranging from 10 to 40 percent less than mined diamonds. Not to mention, you can still select a suitable size, shape, color, and clarity grade for you.

What Are Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab grown diamonds are known by many names: lab-created diamonds, man-made diamonds, engineered diamonds, cultured diamonds, manufactured diamonds– the list goes on. The commonality lies in how these precious stones are created.

Lab-created diamonds are grown in carefully controlled laboratories using sophisticated technological processes that mimic the conditions in which diamonds form naturally. The resulting diamonds have the same visual and chemical qualities. Since these lab gemstones manifest the same carbon atom crystal structures as mined diamonds, even expert gemologists can't tell the difference between the two. Generally, the only way a gemologist would be able to identify where a diamond originated from is by using a loupe to determine if there is an inscription that indicates that its lab grown. Otherwise, the gemstone would need to be sent to an advanced laboratory for testing.

Truly, the only difference between lab grown diamonds and natural diamonds is where they were grown. Natural diamonds form beneath the Earth’s surface and they are about 3 billion years old. Meanwhile, lab grown diamonds are formed in a regulated environment and only take 6-10 weeks to grow. Additionally, engineered diamonds cost up to 40 percent less than their identical natural diamond counterparts.

How are lab grown diamonds made?

Diamonds are produced in labs using the carbon seeds of pre-existing diamonds. These engineered gemstones are grown using advanced technology – either extreme pressure and heat (HPHT) or gas cloud mimicking technology (CVD) – in carefully monitored laboratories. High-Pressure High Temperature and Chemical Vapor Disposition are the two most popular procedures for creating engineered diamonds.

What Makes Lab Grown Diamonds Better Than Mined Diamonds?

A lab-created diamond is just as real as one mined from the ground. They have the same physical and chemical qualities as diamonds and are generated at the same temperature and pressure, but without the conflict and dubious ethical procedures that certain diamond miners employ. In fact, because of the carefully regulated atmosphere and well-monitored procedure, lab-created diamonds are frequently of a higher grade. The following are some of the most significant advantages of a lab-created diamond:

• Beautiful diamonds with better, brighter quality and higher purity
• Fewer diamond defects
• Environmentally friendly
• More affordable
• Unique diamonds are more accessible since labs can create colors that are rarely found naturally
• Transparent origins assure buyers that diamonds aren’t sourced from areas that exploit workers and their communities

The affordability of lab diamonds is one of its most appealing features. Earth diamonds are pricier than these jewels. Unlike Earth diamonds, which must be mined and transported worldwide, engineered diamonds may be grown closer to home, reducing expenses and impacting the environment less.
