Lab Created Diamonds - The New Standard And Why You Should Buy

Lab grown diamonds have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. These engineered gems offer a more sustainable and affordable alternative to traditional diamonds. In fact, it's estimated that over 70% of millennials are now opting for lab grown diamonds over natural diamonds due to their eco-friendly and cost-effective nature.

By choosing lab-created diamonds, you can enjoy the same level of quality and beauty as natural diamonds while supporting a more environmentally responsible industry. With their unique benefits and stunning appearance, lab grown diamonds are definitely worth considering for your next jewelry purchase.

Why Lab Grown Diamonds are Better?

Lab grown diamonds offer several key advantages over natural diamonds that make them a better choice when choosing the best suitable diamond shape, cut, or design for your jewelry:

Superior Quality and Purity

Lab grown diamonds are actually more pure than natural diamonds mined from the earth. This is due to the controlled laboratory environment allowing for fewer defects and less strain in the crystal structure compared to diamonds formed under the immense heat and pressure deep within the earth's surface. This results in synthetic diamonds that are whiter, brighter, and generally of higher quality.

Known & Ethical Origin

Every diamond created in a lab is, and can be traced back to its source, as they are made under strict laboratory conditions. This may not be true when it comes to diamonds mined from the earth, where it's virtually impossible to know or choose the precise origin of each stone given the vast extent of diamond mining worldwide over many centuries.

Mined diamonds also raise ethical issues, as a portion may originate from areas of conflict or are made under substandard labor conditions. Cultured diamonds address these problems, offering a solution that is conflict-free and morally responsible.

Environmentally Sustainable Choice

The process of extracting diamonds has a considerable effect on the environment, necessitating extensive digging, the use of large equipment, and the consumption of non-renewable energy sources.

On the other hand, diamonds grown in labs are created in a controlled environment with a small effect on the planet. A lot of places where diamonds are grown use green energy, which makes the whole process even better for the environment.

Affordable

Lab cultured diamonds are an affordable choice when compared to the mined diamonds. You can buy them at a fraction of the cost, and get more bang for your buck. Lab diamonds have literally no difference from the mined diamonds in terms of their quality, sparkle, and other factors.

Lab grown diamonds are 40-50% less expensive than comparable mined diamonds. This is because the production process is less costly and time-consuming compared to mining. The lower price points make man-made diamonds more accessible to a wider range of consumers. So you can choose lab created diamond jewelry for any occasion and budget.

The 4Cs of Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab grown diamonds are certified by leading gemological instituteslikeIGI, ensuring their authenticity and quality. They are graded using the same 4Cs as natural diamonds, ensuring consistency and comparability. The value of Lab fabricated diamonds is determined by their cut, color, clarity, and carat weight, just like natural diamonds.

Cut of Lab Grown Diamonds

The cut of a lab grown diamond refers to its proportions, symmetry, and polish. These lab diamonds are cut to maximize their brilliance and fire, just like natural diamonds. The cut of a synthetic diamond affects its appearance and can impact its value. It is graded on a scale from Excellent to Poor, with Excellent being the highest grade.

Color of Lab Grown Diamonds

The color of a lab grown diamond is graded on a scale from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow or brown). Lab grown diamonds can be colorless, but they can also be treated to achieve specific color patterns like pink, blue, or yellow. The color of a lab grown diamond is determined by the presence of impurities during the growth process. It is graded on a scale from D to Z, with D being the highest grade.

Clarity of Lab Grown Diamonds

The clarity of a lab grown diamond refers to the presence or absence of inclusions and blemishes. Lab grown diamonds tend to have higher clarity grades than mined diamonds due to the controlled environment in which they are grown. However, even man-made diamonds can have imperfections that affect their clarity grade. It is graded on a scale from FL (Flawless) to I2 (Included), with FL being the highest grade.

Carat of Lab Grown Diamonds

The carat of a lab grown diamond refers to its weight. Lab grown diamonds can range in weight from 0.25 carats to 5 carats, just like natural diamonds. The carat weight of a synthetic diamond determines its size and value and is measured in carats, with one carat equal to 200 milligrams or 1/5 of a gram.

Types of Lab Created Diamonds

Now that we've explored the benefits and characteristics of lab grown diamonds, let's dive deeper into the different types of lab created diamonds available.

Simulant Diamonds

Simulant diamonds are made from alternative materials and are not actually created from carbon like natural and lab made diamonds. They are chemically and physically different from real diamonds, but can closely resemble them in appearance to the naked eye.

Some common simulant diamonds include:

  • Diamond Nexus SimulantsMade from carbon mixed with additional ingredients. They have a lifetime guarantee due to their durability.
  • Cubic Zirconia SimulantsMade from zirconium dioxide this is the least durable and least expensive simulant option.
  • MoissaniteA man made gemstone made from silicon carbide. It is very strong and durable, but has a different look than a diamond.

Cultured Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds are developed in a controlled setting that mimics the deep earth conditions necessary for the natural formation of diamonds. They are produced entirely from raw materials and possess nearly identical physical and chemical characteristics to those found in the earth.

There are two main methods used to grow cultured diamonds:

  • High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT)Exposing carbon, a diamond seed, and metal flux to extreme heat and pressure to force a diamond to form. This is primarily used for industrial diamonds.
  • Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD)Heating gases (usually carbon) and a diamond seed together, causing the carbon to precipitate and form a diamond over several weeks. This method is more commonly used for jewelry.

Cultured diamonds are usually marked with a special identifier indicating their artificial origin, distinguishing them from natural diamonds. They possess the same chemical, physical, and optical properties as those mined from the earth, yet they are more budget-friendly and environmentally friendly.

Caring for Loose Lab Grown Diamonds

Caring for loose lab grown diamonds requires attention to detail and regular maintenance.

Here are some key steps to keep your lab created diamonds looking their best:

  • Clean regularlyUse mild soap and water to clean your lab grown diamonds. Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive materials that can damage the diamond or its setting.
  • Store properlyKeep loose lab grown diamonds in a soft cloth or pouch to prevent scratching and damage. Avoid direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.
  • Avoid harsh chemicalsRefrain from exposing your synthetic diamonds to chemicals like bleach, acid, or cleaning products that can damage the diamond or its setting.
  • Professional cleaningIf you need a deeper clean or professional maintenance, consult a jeweler who specializes in man made diamonds.
