CVD Diamonds - A Breakthrough in the Diamond Industry
You might have often heard the fact that how the earth is suffering due to the careless and irresponsible activities of us humans. Every other day we hear about forest fires, global warming, and a lot more. We often hear a lot of people promoting sustainable living and buying eco-friendly items to maintain the ecological balance of the earth. What if we said that you could shop for diamonds and contribute your bit towards making the earth a better place? Yes, that’s true!
Natural earth-mined diamonds are found below the earth's crust which is acquired through excavating the surface of the earth and requires extensive use of machinery and fuel, and a lot of labor. This is not good for the earth’s ecological balance as it increases the carbon footprint; hence a better and eco-friendly alternative is the CVD diamonds.
What Are CVD Diamonds?
A CVD diamond unlike natural diamond is created above the surface of the earth inside a laboratory through a scientific process known as Chemical Vapor Deposition which results in the creation of a new and authentic diamond that is just as real but is formed without causing any harm to the environment. Although it is difficult to believe these diamonds are real, they possess exactly the same optical, chemical, and physical properties as an earth-mined diamond.
How is a CVD Diamond Made?
The chemical vapor deposition method requires a thin seed of a diamond to be placed in a vacuum chamber. It is then subjected to high-temperature conditions. A carbon-rich gas is also released into this chamber that breaks molecular bonds and allows the carbon to get attached to the diamond seed. As the seed grows, it results in the formation of a diamond. It might take anywhere between a few weeks to months to create a 1-carat CVD diamond.
Why they are the Better Option
Ever since CVD diamonds have been introduced in the diamond industry, they have taken the industry by storm. This is because a lot of environment-conscious people including top A-list celebrities have endorsed these diamonds because of their eco-friendly nature. Although they need a good amount of energy to produce in a laboratory, this is nothing when compared to natural diamonds. Hence investing in a CVD diamond is a great way to shop for eco-friendly diamonds.
