Lab-Grown Diamonds

Eco-Friendly, Brilliantly Created

ABOUT LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS

Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds — not simulants. Instead of forming over millions of years in the earth’s mantle, they are created in rough crystal form by scientists. They are optically, visually, and chemically identical to natural diamonds.

 

OPTICALLY – According to GIA, (Gemological Institute of America), Lab-grown Diamonds are indistinguishable from earth minded diamonds, even under a microscope.

VISUALLY – Special equipment is needed to establish with certainty whether a stone is lab-grown.

CHEMICALLY – Lab-Grown Diamonds are created in rough crystal form by scientists. They are real diamonds – not simulants.

 

WHY LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS

Cost – Lab-Grown Diamonds are priced 30-40% less than earth mined diamonds. If you are looking to purchase a larger diamond with a limited budget, a Lab-Grown Diamond may provide the perfect fit.

Ethical Appeal: Lab-Grown diamonds present an attractive alternative. Created in a lab, they are conflict-free and eco-conscious products.

HOW THEY’RE MADE:

There are two primary methods used to create lab-grown diamonds in a laboratory: CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) and HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature).

The HPHT method involves the application of high temperatures and pressures to a small seed crystal, while the CVD process “grows” the diamonds from the chemical reaction of distilled carbon gas and a seed crystal.
