Lab grown diamonds are the product of human technological advancement and the knowledge we have gleaned from nature. And although though the general public only recently learned about them, they have existed for more than 50 years. The history of synthetic diamonds and how their size increased through time are examined by Diamondrensu.
General Electric was the first business to create a set of lab made diamonds in the 1950s. They developed a mechanism known as the belt press, which functions similarly to the present HPHT method. They were able to create a diamond out of graphite by using metals as a growth catalyst and high pressure and temperature. The initial diamonds weren't suitable for making jewelry since they were small and of very poor quality. They were, however, excellent for industrial use, which is where they initially found application.
Introducing the Largest Lab Grown Diamond in the World Pride of India
The largest diamond in the world to date, a 30.18-carat emerald cut lab grown stone, has been analyzed and graded by the International Gemological Institute (IGI), the largest independent Gemological laboratory in the world.
The 30.18 ct "Pride of India," created by Ethereal Green Diamond, LLP, is the first polished lab grown diamond to weigh more than 30 carats. This innovation follows the recent IGI analysis and grading of the record breaking 27.27 and 20.24 ct stones.
The emerald diamond in Pride of India diamond has a parallel and step cutting faceting style. The 30.18 carat, emerald shaped, VVS clarity, and e color graded Pride of INDIA diamond is so recognized. The largest certified lab grown diamond in the world is this 30.18 carat emerald diamond.
Typically, lab grown diamonds with an emerald cut feature parallel cutting and spectacular scintillation. The emerald lab made diamond is additionally renowned for its length and rounded corners. For your wedding band or engagement ring, you might select emerald diamonds.
The "Pride of India," which was grown utilizing the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) method, was evaluated as having VS2 clarity and H color. It took roughly four weeks for the type IIa raw crystal from which it was fashioned to grow.
Large, top notch lab made diamonds are a specialty of Ethereal Green Diamond, an Indian company with headquarters in Mumbai. The company intends to keep producing and certifying such exceptional record setting diamonds, according to Hirav Anil Virani, managing director of Ethereal: "IGI is the largest organization of its kind, having laboratories all over the world, with an impeccable customer driven team and ameliorating technologies and equipment. This gives us the assurance we need to have our diamonds certified by IGI. One of the best things you can do for the environment and the people living in it is to purchase durable items created responsibly.
Process of Creating the Lab Grown Pride of India Diamond
The Pride of India, an emerald cut lab grown diamond with a VS2 clarity grade, was created by Ethereal Green Diamond. Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) was used to grow it. It took roughly four weeks for the type IIA raw crystal from which it was fashioned to grow.
Creating Lab grown diamonds via Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Method
In that, it employs a part of a diamond seed to create a diamond, and CVD is comparable to HPHT. It diverges, nevertheless, in the materials employed. In contrast to HPHT, which uses high heat and pressure, CVD makes use of low heat and pressure. A piece of the diamond seed is initially placed in a CVD reactor.
Then, a mixture of carbon gas vapors fills the chamber at very low pressure, and microwaves ionize the gases to form plasma. The ionized plasma breaks down the gas molecules once the temperature within the chamber reaches an incredibly high level, which enables carbon to attach to the diamond seed. Crystal carbon is created through the quick crystallization of layers.
Despite the different processes, the end product is the same: a striking lab grown diamond.
The world's largest certified lab grown diamond, Emerald Diamond, weighs 30.18 carats and is produced by the difficult to manage CVD technique using Ethereal Green Diamond. However, their artistry is superb and noteworthy.
Both CVD and HPHT techniques are currently used to grow diamonds all over the world. High pressure and high temperature are used in HPHT to simulate natural circumstances, causing the carbon atoms in graphite to become rough.
This process is highly expensive and complicated, but it typically yields larger better quality diamonds. Conversely, the CVD process uses essentially no pressure. It typically takes less time and aids in producing greater quantities of the most desirable stones, which have a weight range of 1 to 3 carats and a near colorless grade.
The CVD technique, however, now enables the growth of far larger lab grown diamonds.
Unique Features of the Lab Made Pride of India's Diamond
The largest certified lab grown diamond in the world, Pride of India, has the following features:
- The Pride Of India diamond is graded h for color and vs2 for clarity.
- Fewer inclusions are seen on the table surfaces when the clarity grade is VS2.
- Pride of India weighs 30.18 carats and has a parallel cut.
