Lab Grown Diamonds – Things You Should Know Before A Purchase

Gemstone and gold jewellery have existed for centuries and still, nothing can match the craze of diamond jewellery. Today, we are witnessing a shift in the way people purchase diamond jewellery. Customers want to acquire an exquisite and precious piece of jewellery that not only looks visually appealing but connects with them, something that makes them feel loved and celebrated and of course budget-friendly.

 In light of this, we frequently encounter customer inquiries regarding lab-grown diamonds that are cost-effective, particularly when selecting a diamond for an engagement ring or necklace. While there is a growing interest, there's also a lack of awareness about what these diamonds are and how they stack up against their natural counterparts. In today’s blog, our experts from Diamond Story will tell you everything about lab grown diamonds, helping you make an informed decision before your next dazzling investment.

Are Lab Grown Diamonds Real?

The short answer is yes, lab grown diamonds are real diamonds. They look exactly like natural diamonds and possess the same chemical and optical properties as natural diamonds. The key difference lies in their origin - while natural diamonds are formed over billions of years beneath the Earth's crust, lab-grown diamonds are created in controlled environments using advanced technological processes. However, both are graded and certified the same way and assessed by gemologists under the 4C’s criteria.

Difference between Lab Grown Diamonds and Natural Diamonds

The primary difference between lab-grown and natural diamonds is their origin. Natural diamonds are mined from the Earth, having formed under high pressure and temperature conditions over millions of years. Lab-grown diamonds, on the other hand, are created in a laboratory setting, mimicking these natural conditions but over a significantly shorter period. While they are visually and structurally identical, lab-grown diamonds often come with an affordable price tag, due to the more efficient production process.

Is It Worth Buying?

Lab-grown diamonds offer many benefits over their mined counterparts, including ethical production, environmental sustainability, and cost-effectiveness. It allows buyers to get a larger or higher quality diamond for the same price as a smaller or lower quality mined diamond. For those who value these factors, lab-grown diamonds represent a worthy investment.

As awareness grows, so does the appreciation for lab-grown diamonds. They offer a conscientious choice for consumers, aligning with modern values of sustainability and ethical responsibility, without compromising on the beauty or authenticity of the gem.
