Since the world is turning towards eco-friendly and ethical lab grown diamonds, those who are not yet acquainted with these beautiful human-created gems, lab grown diamond growers have taken some steps to create awareness about them.
At New World Diamonds, we have a well-packed repository of information around what lab grown diamonds are and how lab grown diamond growers achieve perfection in the making but here’s our another try to bring you some facts why one should choose lab grown diamonds?
So, read on and get baffled with these amazing facts…
Lab grown diamonds cost less than the mined or nature borne diamonds. This really doesn't mean lab created diamonds are 'cheap' in any other way. The capital costs of mined diamonds and lab grown diamonds are pretty similar.
So how lab grown diamond brands can offer nature like gems in so much less-expensive price tags?
Both lab grown diamonds and mined diamonds have the same costs when we consider cutting, polishing, and grading. However, the processes and costs differ a bit.
Natural or mined diamonds have longer supply chains, they involve getting diamonds from their raw forms to store-ready diamonds. These supply chains include miners, distributors, cutters, polishers, jewelery manufacturers, and then retailers.
On the other side of the coin, lab grown diamond brands like New World Diamonds have their own facility to grow and create diamonds that take around 8 to 10 weeks in the lab. To make the long story short, lab grown diamonds touch very few hands making them more than 30% cheaper than the mined ones.
Many years ago, the natural diamond industry came under investigation when immoral practices were exposed. These diamonds, sometimes are referred to as blood diamonds, were supporting violence and exploiting miners and their families.
Then came the Kimberley Process, established in 2003, since than unethical methods have been significantly decreased. In fact, it’s estimated that majority of natural diamonds are now conflict-free. But still, they have a dark past. Who will want to hold such gems?
However, if avoiding blood diamonds is necessary to you, lab grown diamonds give you peace mind that a natural diamond often cannot, and you may find reassurance in understanding the exact origin of your diamond. Lab grown diamonds have a story as transparent as the gems themselves.
With their natural resonance, lab grown diamonds don't create any impact on the environment.
They also take less energy to grow in a lab and thus minimizing the future impact on the processes as well.
