WHAT'S THE STORY WITH LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS?
What Are Lab-Grown Diamonds?
Lab-grown diamonds are gemstones that are created in a controlled laboratory environment instead of being mined from the earth. These diamonds are created using advanced crystal growth techniques that simulate the natural conditions of diamond formation.
Despite being created in labs, lab-grown diamonds have the same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds, including hardness, transparency, and brilliance. In fact, it's difficult to tell a lab-grown diamond apart from a natural diamond with the naked eye.
Why Choose Lab-Grown Diamonds?
There are two significant reasons why lab-grown diamonds can be an excellent choice compared to natural diamonds:
Price: Lab-grown diamonds can be a more affordable option than natural diamonds, making them more accessible for those looking for an engagement ring or diamond jewelry featuring larger diamonds.
Quality: Because they are created in controlled laboratories, lab-grown diamonds are more plentiful and available in higher clarity grades. It is exponentially more difficult to find a natural diamond in higher clarity grades, and therefore the lab- grown, more easily created option is less valuable in the market.
