Lab Grown Diamonds Are Real Diamonds

With the rise in demand for diamonds, mining them from the earth’s crust no longer remained viable. The ideas of class and splendor associated with diamonds come from their formation process that takes miles below the ground. Since synthetic diamonds don’t have a romantic history, using them in jewelry, especially engagement rings, was not popular initially. 


Thus, lab grown diamonds are often called artificial or fake diamonds. While it is true that these diamonds are produced using artificial methods, there is no difference between earth-mined and lab created diamonds in terms of chemical composition, physicality, or optical features. 


Here is a fact: Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds. Your stud earring made from lab created diamonds is no lesser than those with natural diamonds. you have better chances of finding diamonds that suit your tastes when you opt for cultured diamonds.  

Alert: Huge Savings

Diamonds have always been a symbol of luxury, and it is no secret that everyone wants a piece of that pie. When you choose alternatives to natural diamonds, such as cultured diamonds or moissanite, the most comforting part of the deal is the huge savings that come with it. 


That’s right. You can buy exquisite jewelry with lab grown diamonds and moissanite at a fraction of what the same piece would cost when studded with mined diamonds. 


If you are looking for a budget-friendly wedding or want a treat for yourself without splurging too much, moissanite and lab grown diamonds are perfect. Even though these gems come at a lower price, it does not mean that the quality is compromised. Lab grown diamonds are equally good as, if not better than, naturally occurring diamonds. Similarly, moissanite is also incredibly brilliant and beautiful, no matter what cut or color you require it in.  

Lab Created Diamonds are Eco-Friendly

One of the biggest qualms about purchasing naturally mined diamonds is their environmental impact. Mining for diamonds has always been driven by machinery fueled by diesel. Diamond mining also puts a strain on the water and energy resources in the region and often renders the earth useless for any other purpose. In some locations, unregulated mining and unethical labor practices are used to obtain diamonds from nature. Even with guidelines for ethical mining in place, diamonds that are extracted illegally occasionally make it into the market. 


On the other hand, cultured diamonds are created in labs. No ethical violations or drastic environmental effects result from these diamonds. The same goes for moissanite. You can enjoy these precious gemstones without feeling guilty or responsible for your choices. 

There Is No Difference Between an Earth Mined or a Lab Created Diamond

Diamonds harvested from the depths of earth are composed of carbon atoms that have crystallized under tremendous heat and pressure. These covalent carbon bonds are the secret behind the brilliant white radiance of your gems. After years of trial and error, scientists have perfected the technique to grow a diamond in a lab, mimicking the conditions underground. 


Be it the first HPHT technique or the CVD method used today, lab grown diamonds have the same composition as those mined from the earth. Even to an expert eye, cultured diamonds are indistinguishable from naturally occurring ones. In most cases, synthetic diamonds have more clarity and radiance, thanks to their minimal impurities and lack of inclusions. 

The Same Prestigious Institutes Certify Natural and Lab Diamonds

When synthetic diamonds were just entering the market, they were more popular in manufacturing industrial equipment instead of jewelry. Once gem-quality diamonds were replicated in labs, they were deemed fit for ornamental purposes. Now, the same prestigious lab grade lab grown diamonds and earth mined ones. The top names in diamond certification are:


  • The American Gem Society 
  • The International Gemological Institute
  • HRD Antwerp
  • The Gem Certification and Assurance Lab

The stone is graded depending on the cut, color, clarity, and carat — the 4 Cs of a diamond. For instance, round brilliant and fancy cuts have a distinction, as do colorless diamonds and those with fancy colors. When there are inclusions in the stone, based on its location, the grade of the diamond varies. Unlike natural diamonds, synthetic diamonds can be large. Diamonds ranging from 1-3 carats are trendy due to their affordability, but these precious stones can go up to even 15 carats, making a difference in their grade.
