Lab grown diamonds are created in a controlled laboratory environment using high pressure and high temperature treatment, rather than mined. As lab grown diamonds are created quicker with lower costs, they are a cheaper alternative to a natural diamond. Along with this they are a more sustainable option compared to a diamond mined from within the earths mantle.
Lab grown diamonds are chemically, physically and optically the same as a natural diamond. They begin their journey as a diamond fragment, which is called a diamond seed. The seed is placed in a chamber under controlled high temperatures of around 1500C and placed under immense pressure. Just like a natural diamond, a lab grown diamond can be certified from leading bodies such as the GIA or the IGI. With this certificate you will know exactly what your are purchasing from the all important 4 C’s.
