Frequently Asked Questions
Crafted within a laboratory using state-of-the-art techniques, lab-grown diamonds mimic the natural diamond growth process, yielding a gem that is chemically, physically, and optically indistinguishable from those formed deep within the Earth.
You can have peace of mind knowing that lab diamonds possess identical optical characteristics, chemical makeup, and visual allure as their Earth-mined counterparts. The sole contrast lies in their source. Opt for a guilt-free alternative that boasts the same scintillation, brilliance, and preferred shape. These diamonds maintain chemical parity with natural counterparts, ensuring an uncompromised level of quality
Our most frequently asked question revolves around the authenticity of lab-grown diamonds. The response is unequivocal: yes, lab-grown diamonds, often referred to as man-made or lab diamonds, are unquestionably genuine diamonds. In reality, the sole distinguishing factor between lab-created diamonds and their naturally occurring counterparts is their origin.
"Lab-created diamonds are by no means counterfeits or substitutes, and they certainly do not fall under the category of cubic zirconias. As Stephen Morisseau, a spokesperson for the Gemological Institute of America — a non-profit institution responsible for governing the global diamond grading system, asserts: 'They possess all the identical physical and chemical attributes of a naturally mined diamond."
Lab-grown diamonds offer stunning options for engagement rings and exquisite jewelry pieces, all at a significantly reduced price compared to traditional diamonds, while also carrying a significantly smaller environmental footprint.
Distinguishing between natural and lab-grown diamonds is impossible with the unaided eye. Trained experts employ specialized equipment and diamond testers to confirm their authenticity as genuine diamonds.
Two methods are employed for the production of lab-grown diamonds: High Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).
HPHT lab-grown diamonds undergo production through one of three distinct manufacturing techniques: the belt press, the cubic press, and the split-sphere (BARS) press. These methodologies establish an environment characterized by remarkably elevated pressure and temperature, fostering the growth of diamonds.
