What is a Lab-Grown Diamond?


Grown in highly controlled laboratory environments lab created diamonds are produced using advanced technological processes. They are created in a set up that replicates the conditions under which natural diamonds are formed. The internal structure of these man-made diamonds is that of actual carbon atoms arranged in the same structure of diamond crystals.

These engineered or cultured diamonds as they are also called, have the same optical and chemical properties as mined diamonds.

Lab-grown diamonds are diamonds that were grown by scientists in a lab. They share the same chemical makeup as natural diamonds and are optically identical. The biggest differences between natural and lab-created diamonds are how they are made, and how rare they are.

ARE LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS REAL?


Lab-created diamonds are chemically and physically identical to natural diamonds and are just as durable.

Diamonds that were found in nature take billions of years to form, while man made diamonds can be formed in just a few weeks.

WHAT IS LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS KNOWN AS?


Different sources use different names to refer to lab-grown diamonds.

For example, you might see lab-created diamonds, cultured diamonds, engineered diamonds, synthetic diamonds and even man-made diamonds. If you see a stone with any of these names, just know you are likely getting a diamond that has been grown in a lab. Simply beautiful.

SHOULD I BUY A LAB-GROWN DIAMOND?


science has made it possible to have beautiful, sparkling jewellery at a fraction of the price of natural diamonds.

We make them every day and in bigger batches, so they are perfect to light up more moments.

HOW ARE LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS MADE?


There are a few methods used to create lab-grown diamonds. Typically, lab-grown diamonds start with a tiny lab diamond, like a seed.

The seeds are placed in a chamber called a plasma reactor (in the case of CVD synthesis) or a large mechanical press (if manufactured by HPHT). Then, depending on the technology used, some combination of heat, pressure and a carbon source are used to make the crystals grow, layer by layer.

HOW ARE DIAMONDS CREATED IN A LAB?

CVD stands for chemical vapor deposition.

Lab grown diamond seeds are loaded into a CVD reactor. Then, a mix of gasses containing carbon is added at an extremely low pressure.

Microwaves are added to heat the gases and generate a plasma.

When the temperatures climb over several thousand degrees, the gas molecules break apart and carbon atoms bond to the seeds, growing them one layer at a time.

HPHT stands for high pressure high temperature.

This method mimics the conditions under which diamonds naturally form. Large mechanical presses are used to apply extreme pressure and high temperature to carbon in the presence of a diamond seed.

The seeds act as a template for a lattice of carbon to grow layer by layer over the course of a few days.

WHY LAB GROWN DIAMONDS

Why lab grown Diamonds

The world is turning a new leaf and going green. So, can you, by adopting lab-grown diamonds, the authentic, pure and safe new alternative.

True Diamond

Lab-grown diamonds are identical in every way to mined diamonds. They have the same chemical composition and other properties. The difference can only be distinguished in a gemmological laboratory.

Card image cap
Conflict Free

Lab-grown diamonds are unaffected by political issues in war-torn areas across the globe. Their creation, cutting and polishing processes are not compromised by global conflict.

Card image cap
Eco Friendly

Lab-grown diamonds are created in facilities that are environment friendly and have a tiny ecological footprint. The production process of these diamonds consumes a minimal amount of energy and has almost no emissions that will impact the planet.

Cost Effective

Our lab-grown diamonds cost less than mined diamonds. They cost a fraction of the amount as compared to mined diamonds. They are very pocket friendly and this gives everyone an opportunity to own one of these exquisite pieces.

Certified

Lab-grown diamonds are graded by the leading Gemmological lab using the same four C’s that mined diamonds use. Each of our diamonds comes with a certification from a leading gem laboratory.

Value for money

Purchase a bigger lab grown diamond at the same price that you would pay for a small or average size mined diamond.

ABOUT TYPE IIA DIAMOND

The 4C’s of a diamond are Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat. The 5th C that most Chemical Composition. The composition of Diamonds is essentially that of Nitrogen & Boron impurities that occur during the formation. Out of 100% only 2% diamonds. We are proud to say that all Ethereal Green Diamonds are type IIa. examples of type IIa mined diamonds. Type IIa diamonds are rare and they that are available in the market.
