Because they're made with a predictable supply chain, lab created diamonds are usually less expensive than mined diamonds. More bang for your buck!
YOU'LL KNOW YOUR DIAMOND'S ORIGIN
You’ll know exactly where your lab-grown diamond has been made, since each one is totally traceable. So there’s no risk of purchasing a “conflict” diamond.
THEY LOOK LIKE EARTH-GROWN DIAMONDS
Lab-grown diamonds have the same chemical properties as mined diamonds — they're just as sparkly, full of light, and you can't see any difference at all with the naked eye.
THEY ARE GRADED THE SAME WAY AS EARTH-GROWN DIAMONDS
Lab-grown diamonds are graded on the 4 C's just like natural diamonds: Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat weight.
GO BIGGER OR GO BETTER
Carat for carat, lab-grown diamonds cost less. Your money will go further, either by buying a higher-quality diamond or a larger one.
KNOW WHERE YOUR DIAMOND CAME FROM
Lab-grown diamonds are completely traceable, so you're sure of your diamond's origin.
It takes an expert to see the difference
It takes an expert with professional equipment to tell the difference between a lab-grown and an earth-grown diamond. Lab-grown diamonds have exactly the same chemical properties, and are just as hard as earth-grown diamonds.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do lab grown diamonds test as real diamonds?
Lab grown diamonds are “real” diamonds in the sense that they have exactly the same chemical composition, hardness, and durability as earth-grown diamonds that come from a mine. But a diamond expert using professional equipment can see the difference.
Do lab-grown diamonds last as long as earth-grown diamonds?
Yes, because lab grown diamonds are exactly the same chemically and physically, they last just as long. The only difference is that they are made in a high-tech machine rather than deep in the earth. They don't turn yellow, or fade, or become cloudy.
Are lab grown diamonds flawless?
Lab grown diamonds can be flawless but they are rare, just as with mined diamonds. The growing process starts with a tiny diamond "seed," and most lab grown diamonds have some imperfection or flaw. That’s why they’re graded for color, clarity, cut, and carat just like natural diamonds.
Which is better, lab grown or "natural" earth-grown diamonds?
It depends on what your priority is. Mined diamonds help support communities in mining countries by bringing income to those areas, and there’s a certain mystery to knowing your diamond was created over millions of years. On the other hand, lab grown diamonds are made without mining, which some people consider destructive to the earth. And lab grown diamonds cost less carat for carat. It’s your choice!
