Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds are diamonds produced under high pressure and high temperature conditions in laboratories set up by scientists for this purpose. Natural diamonds have the same physical, chemical and optical properties. The difference between natural diamonds and lab-grown diamonds is in the stage of their existence and how rare they are.

Lab-grown diamonds have great potential in terms of sustainability. In particular, it requires less energy than natural mining. While soil and water use is high in natural diamond mining, laboratory grown diamonds require no soil and water use is very low. As labs use renewable energy sources, their carbon footprint is reduced to almost zero.

While natural diamonds take millions of years to form in nature, lab-grown diamonds are produced in a matter of weeks, shortening this process. In the adventure of creating diamonds, scientists spend thousands of hours refining the process to achieve the same quality and colour every time.

Laboratory-grown diamonds can be graded in the same
way as natural diamonds by evaluating the 4Cs of diamond quality (cut, colour, carat and clarity). In pricing natural diamonds, when weight, cut, colour and clarity are combined, the price increases exponentially. This also increases the rarity and value of the gem. In the case of diamonds created in a laboratory environment, this rarity disappears and the stones are priced more appropriately, regardless of carat weight.
