What Is A Lab Grown Diamond?

Lab-Grown Diamonds, holding the promise of ‘eternal brilliance,’ are one of the finest creations of man that define sophistication in a sterling way! These stones are our proud creations that add an aesthetic appeal to our jewelry while paving the way for sustainable ecology. Lab Grown Diamonds are just as natural as the mined ones, right up to their refractive qualities. The only difference lies in their ‘birth’ origins- while natural diamonds are found in the bowels of the earth’s crust and are mined, Lab Grown Diamonds, like the name suggests, are made in labs with the help of special equipment that can mimic the environmental conditions needed to create these beauties.

Experts these days craft Lab Grown Diamonds using the CVD (Carbon Vapour Deposition) method. The technique involves utilizing the original mined diamond’s remains to accumulate tremendous amounts of solid carbon deposits subjected to extensive heating and shaping procedures that give them their desired forms! Only special machines can discover the differences between Lab Grown Diamonds and natural diamonds!

What are the benefits of Lab Grown Diamonds?

What are the benefits of Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab Grown Diamonds, grown responsibly, are true man-made wonders! Professionals create them with the help of a technique that involves collecting carbon in solid form and then heating it into any preferred shape.

In recent years, environmental awareness has increased exponentially, which means every individual will be looking into the background of their recent purchases! Most natural diamonds develop scratches that result from the risky mining process or various manual cutting techniques. People prefer perfection and the cracks and abrasions can mar the beauty of any diamond jewelry. The heavy processes involved raise the price of natural diamonds.

With Lab Grown Diamonds, one does not need to worry about imperfections and prices. Special machinery is the key to creating the gems by copying the environmental conditions required without harming any ecosystems.

Why choose Lab Grown Diamonds, and what makes them different?

Why choose Lab Grown Diamonds, and what makes them different?

The average supply of natural diamonds comes from the mines in Africa, where the workers risk their well-being following the exhaustive extraction processes of mined diamonds, and the locals accidentally inhale the polluted air, compromising their immune system. Workers are exposed to a harsh environment that poses hazardous threats while degrading the quality of land with the ardent use of heavy machinery. Thus, both- nature and humans suffer and the question remains - Is it worth it?

Lab Grown Diamonds are the future. They are an ethical way of making your jewelry sparkle as they do not come with such problems, as it is all about the right angles the machine needs. The best part is the low costs- natural diamonds are known for their exorbitant prices due to the hands they pass through right after being unearthed. In contrast, Man Made Diamonds do not involve such rituals, making them less expensive for the environment-conscious youth and those dealing with financial constraints!

All shapes of Lab Grown Diamonds

We have a variety of Lab Grown Diamonds, and you can choose the one that appeals to you the most:

Round: This is a standard shape and the toughest one for any craftsman to master. Diamonds of this shape are often subjected to authentication tests, as their refractive properties are the greatest and most reliable.

Radiant: One of the newest additions to the list is a square shaped diamond characterized by flat corners. Most people prefer them in unique colors like pink, orange, blue, and yellow.

Marquise: Known for its elongated shape and pointed tips, it is preferred for engagement rings.

Oval: Another shape that has made a name for itself and is considered suitable for necklaces and pendants. Artisans rarely use them for rings.

Cushion: As the name says, it looks like a cushion, complete with rounded corners. It is great for bracelets and necklaces.

Princess: A literal square; this is another popular shape for jewelry pieces, but people seldom prefer them for rings.

Pear: Many diamond pendants feature this shape, giving them a unique appearance. Diamond rings featuring it are scarce.

Emerald: This rectangular stone is just as versatile as the round shape.

You can also check for shapes like Asscher and heart, but if none of them appeal to you, then don’t lose heart- ask New World Diamonds for help.

Lab Created Diamonds v/s Diamond Simulants

Lab Created Diamonds v/s Diamond Simulants

When experts talk about Diamond simulants, they refer to stones like Cubic Zirconia and Moissanite that may bear a striking resemblance to the real thing but have low carbon content and are just pieces of glass given the form of diamonds. They ‘simulate’ the looks of the famous gemstones but do not have their refractive abilities.

The trending Lab Created Diamonds have all the qualities of the natural diamonds but lack the defects of the Diamond simulants. They are neither natural nor artificial, as they result from the CVD (Carbon Vapour Deposition) process, which involves collecting carbon in solid form and eventually shaping it through the heating process. Where Diamond simulants lose the authenticity test, the Lab Created Diamonds win.

Lab Created Diamonds v/s Natural Diamonds

Lab Created Diamonds v/s Natural Diamonds

Natural diamonds occur under the earth due to carbon deposits caused by extreme heat. These stones are then dug out following an extensive drilling process, which affects the surrounding air. Artisans then cut up the gems, which is complicated and time-consuming. Specific Colored Diamonds are hard to come by, as the chemical composition required for the intense shade might be too low in their place of origin.

Experts create Lab Created Diamonds by utilizing machinery that converts carbon into solid form and then heats it into the desired shape with the correct dimensions. Unlike natural diamonds, which can fall prey to accidental chipping, such is not the case with Lab Created Diamonds, thanks to the cutting-edge technology that does a flawless job. Experts even make Colored Diamonds through a unique chemical-absorption process!
