Lab Grown Diamonds
Lab Grown Diamonds, also known as man-made or cultivated diamonds, offer the same luxurious sparkle and natural resilience as earth-made diamonds, but with an extended range of availability and affordability.
Lab Diamonds Are ‘Real’ Diamonds
Lab Diamonds are chemically, physically, and optically identical to natural diamonds, the only difference is how they are created.
Natural diamonds form deep in the Earth’s crust over millions of years under extreme heat and pressure, while lab-grown diamonds are created using a process called Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) or High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) methods in a laboratory.
However, it is important to note that lab-grown diamonds can not be considered exactly the same as natural diamonds, as they are easily identified by jewellers and diamond experts.
Benefits of Man Made Diamonds
With the same chemical and optical properties as mined diamonds, lab-made diamonds are a great choice if you’re looking to create or find your dream engagement ring that suits both your style and budget.
Lab-grown diamonds are also considered to be more environmentally friendly, as they do not require extensive mining efforts and the environmental impacts associated with it.
