What are Lab-grown Diamonds?
Lab-grown diamonds are created in a lab, instead of being traditionally mined from the earth. However, the mineral composition of 100% carbon remains the same. Lab-grown diamonds are formed when a small amount of carbon is put into a high-pressure chamber and heated to extremely high temperatures. The resulting product is a diamond identical to mined diamonds but at a much lower cost.
These diamonds share the same chemical, optical, and thermal properties as mined diamonds but lack inclusions. As they are grown in a controlled environment, there is no risk of them being tainted with hazardous materials. With just the naked eye, it is impossible to tell the difference between a lab-grown and naturally mined diamond.
What are the Benefits?
Lab-grown diamonds are a more eco-friendly and ethical alternative to naturally mined diamonds. They require no digging and polluting of the earth and often come from conflict-free sources. This is crucial as the process of forming a natural diamond may take up to a million years, whereas lab-grown diamonds take a much shorter time.
In addition to being environmentally benign, many may opt for lab-grown diamond engagement or wedding rings due to their cost-effectiveness. With diamonds being one of the most desired and adored gemstones, many want them in their rings but cannot afford the high price tag associated with them. Lab-grown diamonds are the perfect option as they are precisely the same as mined diamonds but cost a fraction of the price.
How are they Graded and Certified?
Lab-grown diamonds are graded with the same criteria as mined diamonds, with a couple of exceptions. Since they do not require excavation, they do not have to be assessed for their potential to be turned into jewelry. Lab-grown diamonds are also graded for their clarity rather than the inclusions they might have.
