Lab Created Diamonds are genuine diamonds that have been created, or grown, in a controlled environment.  They are chemically, physically, and optically the same as natural diamonds mined from the ground.

How are Lab Created Diamonds made?

There are a few ways they are created.  Most commonly, they take a seed or small crystal and then grow the crystal in a controlled environment, carefully monitoring temperature and pressure.  Once they have the desired size, they take the rough diamond and put it through the same cut and polish system as a natural diamond.

  1. Eco-Friendly.  The growth of diamonds requires less energy and does not require mining.  That means no draining of lakes, no explosions, and no damage to the fragile environment.
  2. 100% Conflict Free ( no blood diamonds ).  Blood diamonds are diamonds mined in a war zone and sold to finance insurgency, invading army's war efforts, or a warlord's activity.

How does the price compare to mined diamonds?

Lab Created Diamonds, on average, are only about half the price as a comparable minded diamond.  This allows you to get a bigger, prettier diamond than you though you could.
