When it comes to diamonds, the word “real” often conjures images of rare, sparkling gems extracted from deep within the Earth. However, a new player has entered the world of diamonds, one that challenges traditional notions of authenticity – the lab-grown diamond. Are these diamonds, grown in a controlled environment, truly “real” diamonds? Let’s delve into the science, history, and industry perspectives to uncover the answer.
The Science Behind Lab-Grown Diamonds
Lab-grown diamonds, also known as synthetic or cultured diamonds, are created through a fascinating process that replicates the conditions under which natural diamonds form. Both natural and lab-grown diamonds are composed of carbon atoms arranged in a crystal lattice structure, making them nearly identical at the molecular level.
The most common method for creating lab-grown diamonds is Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and High-Pressure High-Temperature (HPHT) processes.

Lab-created diamonds are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to earth-mined diamonds. Lab diamonds are man-made diamonds that consist of carbon atoms arranged in a diamond crystal structure with the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as natural diamonds. In other words, lab diamond rings appear visually identical to natural diamond rings—even jewelry experts find it difficult to distinguish between lab-created diamonds and natural diamonds with the naked eye.
Lab diamonds are not only sought after for their sparkle and brilliance, but they also make a sustainable choice and do not harm the Earth's surface. Lab-created diamonds are also typically more affordable than natural diamonds of comparable clarity, cut, and carat size.
If you're thinking about tying the knot, here are five of our most popular lab-created diamond engagement rings.

The Ethical Choice
In today's world and especially in the United States, we strive to be as conscious as possible about the things we buy. From the food we put into our bodies the cars we drive, many of us research and make adjustments depending on the ethical, economic, and environmental impact our choices will have.
It only makes sense that, eventually, this conscious way of making decisions would affect our fashion choices—and eventually how we choose our jewelry.
It's no secret that mined natural diamonds have a huge negative impact, both environmentally and ethically. For every single carat of natural diamond mined, nearly three tons of mineral waste is created. That's a lot of waste for such a small gemstone, and all that damage to the Earth's surface likely isn't worth it. And because children are considered "cheap labor", they are often employed in diamond mines for low wages in dangerous, and sometimes deadly, conditions. This lack of safety measures should

Every single piece of diamond jewelry made by Agape Diamonds is manufactured with the highest quality materials and finished by artisan jewelers, ensuring that their customers get nothing short of the fine jewelry they deserve. And because Agape sells its jewelry straight to the customer without having to go through a jeweler, customers pay two to three times less than at other jewelry stores.
However, sometimes even a wholesale diamond industry purchase is out of reach for customers, and instead of purchasing a stunning diamond engagement ring, they choose to opt for something more affordable like cubic zirconia, which is significantly different in clarity and quality to the naked eye when compared with a natural diamond or a lab diamond. Needless to say, high-quality items from the jewelry industry don't always make the final wish list.
But choosing a cheaper and less durable gemstone isn't a customer's only option. Sometimes, you can still get the best diamond for
