Your first instinct when you hear the term lab grown diamonds is that they are not real diamonds. I’m here to tell you that is 100% false. Lab grown diamonds are absolutely real diamonds and the more impressive piece is that even expert gemologists cannot tell the difference between the two.

Although natural diamonds are created in the Earth’s and cultured diamonds are lab grown, they both have the same exact chemical and optical properties of real diamonds. A quick science lesson… Diamonds are formed when carbon atoms arrange themselves into a crystal structure from the heat and pressure of the Earth’s constantly moving crust. In the lab, scientists can reproduce the heat and pressure that exists in the Earth crust thus forming the same exact diamond, but in a more controlled environment.

The primary difference between the two diamonds is that when the process of growing diamonds in a lab was initially created, labs could only grow small diamonds, but that is no longer the case. Most labs can grow diamonds up to three carats in size.

Lab grown diamonds can also be grown into any shape. The come in square, emerald, oval, cushion, radiant, princess, asscher and many more. They can also be colored so if you love a colored gemstone, lab grown diamonds can be colored to suit your interest.

You could also have the best of both worlds by purchasing a ring that features both lab grown diamonds and naturally mined diamonds. The freedom is yours to decide exactly what you would like your jewelry to look like and get a better control over the price, which leads me to the main point…

Lab created diamonds are, on average, 30% cheaper than naturally mined diamonds despite the fact that they are the same exact substance. They have the same level of brilliance and the same level of durability. Check out this brand, they are selling beautiful fine jewelry made from cultured diamonds, and I dare you to tell me the jewelry isn’t completely breathtaking.

It is important to note that lab-grown diamonds are not the same as diamond simulants like Cubic Zirconia and Moissanite, and those simulants are usually even less expensive but for a good reason. Diamonds simulants are not made for the same carbon crystals and thus do not posses the brilliance and beauty of a true diamond.

So you’re paying less, saving the environment, helping eliminate unethical mining practices, purchasing a real precious stone, and able to select any size or shape… I think that is a win, win, win, win for everyone.
