Unlike natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds grown in laboratories by scientists. However, they possess the same chemical makeup as natural diamonds and are optically identical too. The biggest differences between natural and lab-created diamonds are how they’re made, and how rare they are.
The diamonds grown in labs are often called lab-grown diamonds, lab-created diamonds, and also man-made diamonds. The other popular names are cultured diamonds, engineered diamonds, and even synthetic diamonds.
Laboratory grown diamonds are as natural as mined diamonds and both consist of pure carbon in a cubic crystalline form. Lab-grown diamonds are perfect to light up more moments, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, birthday, and any other moment just like mined diamonds.
Can you spot the difference between lab-grown diamonds & natural diamonds?
Not really, especially with the naked eyes. But yes, only an expert with a high-tech machine can definitely spot the differences between lab-grown and natural diamonds. While lab-grown diamonds and natural diamonds are physically and chemically identical, it’s their rarity that truly sets them apart.
Why natural diamonds are priced higher than lab-grown diamonds?
Large and high-quality natural diamonds are very rare. By contrast, there is potentially no limit to how many more man-made diamonds we can grow in the future. Because they can be made in large batches in a few weeks over and over again, they’re priced significantly lower than natural diamonds.
What makes Lab-grown diamond so popular?
The man-made diamonds became famous due to a few reasons. First of all, these diamonds are cheaper than the natural diamond, even being a lower cost than the natural diamonds this diamond does not compromise its quality.
Benefits of Lab-created Diamonds
- Eco Friendly - For every carat of diamond that is mined, nearly 100 sq ft of land is disturbed and almost 6000 lbs of mineral waste are created.
- Ethically Sourced - All in all, mined diamonds result in 1 injury for every 1,000 workers annually, while lab-grown diamonds result in zero.
- Competitively Priced - No diamond is free, but due to the shorter supply chain, lab-grown diamonds can be anywhere from 20-30% less expensive than mined diamonds.
Are lab-created diamonds certified?
Yes, all lab-grown diamonds are certified. And, at Forever Yours you will find only certified lab grown diamond jewellery. All our diamonds are accompanied by a third-party diamond certificate.
Diamond Certification (most commonly from laboratories such as GIA, AGS, IGI, EGL, GSI, and HRD) is a document from an objective, independent third-party laboratory that describes a diamond in all its features.
