Why Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab-grown diamonds are created in a laboratory and possess essentially the same chemical, physical and optical properties as natural diamonds. They are also known as man-made or synthetic diamonds. They entered the gem and jewelry market in commercial quantities about five years ago.

Although identical in appearance to natural diamonds, they have very subtle differences that can only be detected by trained gemologists and sophisticated equipment designed for that purpose.

Natural diamonds formed deep in the earth under extreme pressure and high temperature as long as three billion years ago. Volcanic activity brought them to the surface where they lay in a type of volcanic rock formation known as kimberlite pipes, waiting to be mined.

The major difference between natural diamonds and lab-grown diamonds is that while natural diamonds cost more, they maintain their value better, while lab-grown diamonds have been seen their prices decrease consistently over time.

Without specialized equipment, you won’t be able to tell the difference between a lab-grown or a natural diamond — they appear the same. The only noticeable difference between them is their origin: one was formed deep within the Earth, the other was grown in a lab.
