Diamonds created in a lab are virtually identical to mined diamonds in both appearance and structure.
They have almost identical internal structure and hardness/durability as natural diamonds while the way the stones reflect light is also exactly the same.
Also known as ethical diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are certified by the same system and standards as mined diamonds. As a result, they are graded according to the four Cs – carat, cut, clarity and colour, just like natural diamonds.
The only difference between mined diamonds and lab-grown diamonds is their origins. One comes from deep in the earth, while the other is ‘grown’ in a lab by recreating the same processes. These being extreme pressure and heat, the same as natural diamonds are exposed to in the ground.
Lab Diamonds tend to cost 30-40% less than natural diamonds.
