What are Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab-Grown Diamonds are just like test-tube babies grown from a single seed of Diamond under the same heat and pressure as in the crust of mother earth. They are ecologically friendly as they do not scar the earth with mining. Since they avoid the stigma of blood-diamonds there has been a worldwide acceptance for this category. And, most importantly, they are more uniform, yet cheaper than earth-mined diamonds.

Lab-grown diamonds are now becoming a popular alternative for many people since they can have the same beauty and properties as a mined diamond and are often more affordable. Whether you are considering a lab-grown or natural diamond, know its identity and quality by purchasing a stone with a GIA Diamond Report.

Difference between Lab-Grown and
Earth –Mined Diamonds

  • Natural diamonds formed deep in the earth under extreme pressure and high temperature as long as three billion years ago while Man-made diamonds suitable for industrial use were first produced in a laboratory in the 1950s.
  • Lab-grown diamonds are becoming increasingly sought after for engagement rings and fine jewelry because they are much more affordable than natural diamonds.
  • Lower clarity Lab Diamonds have a few inclusions that do not occur in Natural diamonds.
  • Lab-grown diamonds are physically, chemically, and optically identical to earth-grown diamonds, so no one will know that your diamond was lab-grown.
