The number one question we get is “Are lab-created diamonds real diamonds?” (also called man-made diamonds or lab-grown diamonds)The answer is a very simple yes. The only thing that makes a lab Grown diamond different from a natural diamond is its origin. A lab Grown diamond is “grown” inside a lab using cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process. The result is a man-made diamond that is chemically, physically, and optically the same as those grown beneath the Earth’s surface.
Lab Grown diamonds are not fakes as they’re not cubic zirconia. They have all the same physical and chemical properties of a mined diamond.” Stephen Morisseau, a spokesman for the Gemological Institute of America, a nonprofit organization that oversees the international diamond grading system.
Sometimes, lab grown diamonds are referred to as synthetic diamonds. While not technically inaccurate, term “synthetic” may be the reason people believe Lab Grown diamonds are fake. If we compare them to other popular diamond simulants, it’s obvious that manufactured diamonds, in fact, the real deal.
Natural diamond VS lab grown diamonds:
Effects On The Earth– 1ct of mined diamond = nearly 100 sqft of disturbed land & almost 6000 lbs of mineral waste. 1ct of lab-grown diamonds disrupt just 0.07 sqft of land & only 1 lb of mineral waste.
Effects On People– All in all, mined diamonds result in 1 injury for every 1,000 workers annually, while lab-grown diamonds result in zero.
Effects On Your Wallet– Lab-grown diamonds can be anywhere from 30% less expensive than mined diamonds. This also means you can purchase a larger diamond within the same budget.
Effect on Environment– Jewelry that betters the world around you? That’s lab-grown diamonds in a nutshell. Not only do man-made stones offer the same clarity and quality as mined ones, but they’re created in a way that’s more sustainable, more eco-friendly and better in the long-term for the environment.
