WHAT ARE LAB GROWN DIAMONDS?
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.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
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.
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.
HOW ARE LAB GROWN 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.
HOW IS THE QUALITY OF LAB GROWN DIAMONDS GRADED?
Lab Created Diamonds for jewelry are graded exactly the same as natural diamonds, from Internally Flawless to I in clarity and D-colorless to Vivid Fancy's.
Lab Created Diamonds are real diamonds. They are not simulated or diamond replacements, but real diamonds. They represent all the love and romance associated with this most precious gemstone.
