Lab Created Diamonds

You are online shopping for the perfect piece for your significant other, when you come across a LAB CREATED diamond. What exactly is a lab created diamond and what is the difference from its naturally mined cousin? In today’s blog post I will cover the differences in these two very similar diamonds.

A lab created diamond is just that a diamond grown in a controlled lab. They’re grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes that duplicate the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the Earth's crust. Although grown by scientists instead of created in the earth's crust, lab diamonds are absolutely real diamonds—they display the same chemical and optical properties as natural diamonds. Even expert gemologists can't tell the difference.

Labs created diamonds are a great way to get an amazing diamond that had no environmental or social impacts. It is a great choice for those of you that are earth conscious or don’t feel like you want a diamond that left a big carbon footprint…pun intended! They are also generally 20% - 40% cheaper than their mined cousins. It can be a bit more ethical on the budget to buy a lab created diamond particularly if you are going with a large carat amount

Natural diamonds are mined in the earth and take millions of years to form. The mining process can take a very long time as well and in many places has environmental and social impacts that may be unseen till many years down the road. Although many mining companies are attempting to better the areas they have mined and replace the earth where the mine was as well as bring in resources for surrounding villages.
