About Lab Grown Diamonds
Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds. They are the new eco-friendly alternative to traditional mined diamonds with a much more affordable price. They look the same, feel the same, and sparkle the same.
The Process – Lab diamonds are grown in a special chamber that mimics the natural process in the earth’s crust. The resulting lab grown diamonds have the same chemical and physical composition, as well as the same optical properties as their mined counterparts. The two diamonds are indistinguishable to the eye and even to common testing equipment.
Responsibly Sourced – If you care about where your diamond comes from, and if you want absolute certainty it is not a “conflict diamond,” then lab grown diamonds are for you. You know exactly where they come from… the lab!
Environmentally Friendly – The diamond growing process uses clean carbon and heat. No mining is involved so the earth is not disturbed and the environmental impact is minimal.
Beautiful and Sparkly – Lab grown diamonds are cut to perfection. The growth process yields a symmetrical crystal shape that allows the diamond cutters to extract the best possible cut with absolute precision.
Affordable – At 40-50% of the price of mined diamonds, lab grown diamonds present an intriguing and affordable option. You can double the size of her engagement diamond and present her with a more impressive ring.
