What sets lab-grown diamonds apart?
What sets lab-grown diamonds apart is their formation. While natural diamonds are created deep within the earth under intense heat and pressure, lab-grown diamonds are meticulously crafted in a controlled laboratory environment. Using advanced technology, we replicate the conditions for diamond formation, ensuring the highest quality and ethical standards.
Comparison of Diamond Properties
When it comes to diamond properties, lab-grown diamonds undergo the same rigorous grading process as natural diamonds. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from D VVS1 to fancy colored diamonds like pinks and blues. From small 0.01ct stones to impressive 5ct diamonds, we have a wide selection to suit every preference.

Please note that the properties can vary within both lab-grown and natural diamonds depending on individual stones. This table provides a general comparison to give you an idea of the similarities and differences between the two types of diamonds.
How are Lab Diamonds Made?
The process of creating lab-grown diamonds begins with a tiny pre-existing diamond acting as a “seed.” Through groundbreaking technology, extreme pressure and heat are applied to mimic the natural formation process within the Earth’s mantle. Over time, the diamond seed grows into a rough, pure diamond that is then cut and polished to perfection.
Distinguishing Lab Diamonds from Natural Diamonds
Distinguishing lab-grown diamonds from natural diamonds is a challenge, even for experts. Under a 10x loupe, they are nearly indistinguishable. Only specialized equipment capable of measuring fluorescence can reveal the difference. Unlike natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds do not exhibit fluorescence, making them equally captivating and authentic.
Lab-Grown Diamonds vs. Diamond Simulants
It’s important to note that lab-grown diamonds are not diamond simulants like cubic zirconia or moissanite. They possess the same chemical and physical properties as natural diamonds, ensuring their lasting value and beauty.
