Lab Grown Diamonds vs. Natural Diamonds



Like diamonds mined from the Earth, lab grown diamonds, according to the Federal Trade Commission, are carbon crystallized in the isometric system with a hardness of 10 on the mohs scale, with a specific gravity of 3.52 and a refractive index of 2.42.

That’s a really scientific way of saying: there’s no difference chemically between a mined diamond and a lab grown diamond.

They are also the same, optically and physically as mined diamonds. The only difference is that one is grown in a lab, the other is mined from the ground. Much like lab grown sapphires, rubies and other lab grown colored gemstones, the difference is in the sustainability and cost of the gems. And that’s a BIG deal.

Because of how they are made and more importantly, how they are obtained, lab grown diamonds generally cost 25-50% less than mined diamonds.

How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Made

1.- First, a high quality, lab grown diamond seed is placed in a Chemical Vapor        Deposition (CVD) chamber, or greenhouse.

2.- Then, hydrogen is pumped into the chamber and ignited. Methane, which          is the source of carbon for diamonds, is introduced, and the diamond is left        to grow, layer by layer, for about 12 weeks.

3.- After growing, the rough diamond crystal is ready to be cut. Here’s where            the skill of the diamond cutter comes into play. Using techniques that have        been around for generations, expert diamond cutters cut, facet and polish          the gemstones.

That’s it!  pretty simple! and, almost every lab grown diamond over is laser inscribed and lab graded, identifying it as lab grown. So they’re less expensive, environmentally friendly and conflict free. Sounds perfect!
