Lab Grown Diamonds versus Earth Mined Diamonds

Lab Grown Diamonds

ABOUT LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS

Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds — not simulants. Instead of forming over millions of years in the earth’s mantle, they are created in rough crystal form by scientists. They are optically, visually, and chemically identical to natural diamonds.

 

THE BENEFITS OF LAB GROWN DIAMONDS

Price:  Depending on size and quality, they usually cost between 30-40% less than natural diamonds.

Ethical Appeal:  For consumers concerned about ethical issues surrounding mined diamonds (whether real or imagined), lab-grown diamonds present an attractive alternative.

 

LAB-GROWN PROCESSING PROTOCOLS

The diamonds arrive with —

  • A certificate from IGI (International Gemological Institute) or GCAL (Gem Certification and Assurance Lab)
  • A unique inscription on the girdle

 

HOW THE LAB GROWN DIAMONDS ARE MADE

There are two primary methods used to create diamonds in a laboratory: CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) and HPHT (High-Pressure High Temperature). Our product involves a combination of both.

The HPHT method involves the application of high temperatures and pressures to a small seed crystal, while the CVD process “grows” the diamonds from the chemical reaction of distilled carbon gas and a seed crystal.

Our lab-grown diamonds are created using the CVD method and are further treated using HTHP to improve the color.
