“Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds?”
Yes, Lab grown/created diamonds are real/genuine diamonds.
The only thing that makes a lab grown/created diamond different from a natural diamond is its origin. A grown/created diamond is “grown” inside a lab using cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process. The result is a man-made diamond that is chemically, physically, and optically the same as those grown beneath the Earth’s surface.
Lab grown/created are not fakes. They are not cubic zirconias. They have all the same physical and chemical properties of a mined diamond.
Benefits of buying Lab Grown Diamonds:
Effects On The Earth:
1ct of mined diamond = nearly 100 sqft of disturbed land & almost 6000 lbs of mineral waste. 1ct of lab-grown diamonds disrupt just 0.07 sqft of land & only 1 lb of mineral waste.
Effects On People:
All in all, mined diamonds result in 1 injury for every 1,000 workers annually, while lab-grown diamonds result in zero.
Effects On Your Wallet:
Lab-grown diamonds can be anywhere from 20-30% less expensive than mined diamonds. This also means you can purchase a larger diamond within the same budget.
How are our Lab Grown Diamonds created?
All our diamonds are CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) diamonds.
Growing CVD diamonds relies on a unique and innovative process. In chemical vapor deposition, a thin ‘seed’ diamond is placed inside of a sealed chamber and subjected to high temperatures (generally around 800°C). Then, a carbon-rich gas mixture (usually of hydrogen and methane) is introduced to the chamber. The gases are ionized to break down their molecular bonds, allowing the pure carbon to attach itself to the diamond seed. As the carbon builds up, it forms atomic bonds with the seed diamond, resulting in the growth of a new, larger diamond — completely identical to the diamonds found in nature.
CVD Lab Grown diamond are environmentally safe and truly a modern ethical choice.
