Lab grown diamonds are identical to natural diamonds and have the same chemical properties as naturally grown diamonds. The difference comes from their origin. Whereas natural diamonds are created over millions of years beneath the Earth's crust, lab grown diamonds as their name suggest are created in labs using advanced technological processes that mimic the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop.
Lab grown diamonds start life as tiny carbon seeds. Using extreme heat and pressure the diamonds are grown.
Lab created diamonds are real diamonds and nearly impossible to differentiate from natural diamonds. Only a gemmologist using specialist equipment can distinguish them.
Since lab grown diamonds are identical and made of the same material as natural diamonds, they exhibit the same sparkle and dazzle as their natural counterparts. They also adhere to the 4Cs of cut, clarity, colour and carat just like natural diamonds.
Lab grown diamonds offer excellent value for money and are often seen as an ethical choice as they do not require any diamond mining.
Lab grown diamonds should not be confused with cubic zirconia or moissanite which are simulants. These are not true carbon crystals and therefore do not possess the same physical or chemical properties as diamonds.
