How Lab-Created Diamonds Made in Lab?

Lab created diamonds have the equivalent physical, chemical, and ocular properties as natural diamonds, along with the same fire, style, and sparkle. Since there is no mining involved with the production of these gemstones, they are an exceptionally environmentally-friendly choice if you are looking for these precious stones.

Not to be surprised, most of the people are still unaware of the methods behind creating these sparklers during their journey in the lab. High-Pressure heat (HPHT) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) are two common methods for lab diamond creation, for ultimate quality, wearable gems, CVD is that the preferred process.

HPHT diamonds are made using one among three manufacturing processes: the cubic process a belt press and then the split-sphere (BARS) press. All three processes create an environment of extremely high and temperature conducive to diamond growth which is identical in the earth's crust.

An HPHT diamond creates a little diamond seed that's placed into carbon. Using one of the manufacturing processes above, the seed is exposed to temperatures of about 1500 degrees Celsius and pressurized to approximately 1.5 million pounds per square inch.

The pure carbon then melts and starts to make a diamond round the starter seed. it's then carefully cooled down to make a pure carbon diamond.

A CVD diamond begins as a skinny slice of diamond seed, which is usually an HPHT produced diamond. The diamond seed is placed in an enclosed chamber and heated to around 800 degrees Celsius.

The chamber is crammed with a carbon rich-gas, like Methane. The gases are ionized into plasma using technology almost like that of say microwaves or lasers. The ionization breaks the molecular bonds within the gases, and therefore the pure carbon adheres to the diamond seed and slowly crystallizes.

Now you might say if the processes are so simple, why they are not a lot cheaper, they should be like half the value they are sold right now, why aren’t they?

Even though the costs of lab-created diamonds have dropped in the recent past, and that we predict that trend will continue. Jewelers don’t want to shop for back lab-grown diamonds and if you are trying to sell them on eBay, you’ll get pennies on the dollar.

Having said that, if you’re intrigued with the thought of a lab-created diamonds, you'll get more bang for your buck by going with lab created diamonds. We recommend our collection for lab-created diamonds. They can be certified which allows you to look at each diamond up close before purchase.
