About Lab Grown Diamonds
Lab grown diamonds have been used in the industry for almost 5 decades but from the last decade, their demand has increased as they are a little less costly than the original diamonds.
There have been a lot more improvements in the techniques and technologies for growing diamonds and the lab-grown diamonds are available in different sizes, clarity, and colors, including beautiful blues and pinks.
Benefits of Lab Grown Diamonds
Lab grown diamonds shine and sparkle just like real diamonds and no one can differentiates these by merely looking at them.
Lab-grown diamonds can be produced in large batches in just a few weeks. This makes lab-grown diamonds considerably less expensive than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality.
Range of Colors:
In addition to any custom-made colorless stones, lab-grown diamonds are also available in an array of colors that are extremely rare and expensive in natural form and have a one in million chance to obtain that.
Production of Lab Grown Diamonds
Lab grown diamonds are being produced in a carefully controlled laboratory using sophisticated technical methods to simulate the real geologic forces which grow natural diamonds.
Examining their specialized techniques through mechanical advances, there are currently two main strategies for creating excellent lab-grown diamonds: the HPHT and the CVD strategies.
Lab Grown Diamond Techniques
HPHT (High Pressing and High Temperature)
The HPHT technique, which represents the natural process within the earth, uses carbon which is crystallized as a natural diamond through intense heat and pressure.
This method tends to be more costly because of the required energy and equipment for the process.
CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition)
The CVD technique using a process involves introducing some kind of gas, into a vacuum chamber, then breaking the molecules of the gas with microwaves.
This causes the carbon atoms to gather together on a small surface containing a diamond seed crystal. The CVD technique offers lower costs because it works at low pressure and low temperatures (no as the HPHT technique). For that reason, the required equipment’s costs are much lower.
Are Lab Grown Diamonds Are Real Diamonds?
On one hand, one can say that the lab grown diamonds are not real diamonds because a real diamond took a million years to develop under the earth.
On the other hand, although lab grown diamonds have been grown in labs, they are made from real carbon atoms and have the same visual and chemical characteristics as real diamonds.
The Differences Between Lab Grown and Natural Diamonds
Carbon is the main component in both natural and lab-grown diamonds.
The solitary synthetic distinction between Lab grown diamonds versus natural diamonds is that most naturally minded diamonds contain little measures of nitrogen, and lab-grown doesn't.
Laser engraving and extraordinary fluorescence are other recognizing highlights of lab-grown diamonds.
A jewelry which set with lab grown diamond should come along with a certification or an appraisal, from a reputed company, that explains the item's specification and its criteria and the indication about the diamonds.
All our items are coming along with jewelry appraisals, so you could know all the necessary information, including if the item has set with natural or lab grown diamonds.
Can You Tell The Difference Between Lab-Grown Diamonds And Natural Diamonds?
The difference between lab grown and natural diamonds can be detected by a diamond expert with specialized technical
equipment. If you have a piece of jewelry, you can just bring it to our shop and an expert will give you all the information about your piece.
