Why Choose Lab Grown Diamonds

Why Choose Lab Grown Diamonds

Anyone that has laid eyes on a high-quality, lab grown diamond will tell you that they’re just as dazzling as naturally occurring stones. That’s because - despite being made in a different way - lab grown diamonds share identical properties to those formed underground. 

Not only that, but lab grown diamonds are ethically sourced and offer shoppers much greater affordability. This means you can buy a high grade of diamond for a much lower price.

  • Quality – Lab grown diamonds have identical chemical, physical and optical properties as natural diamonds – only an expert with a high-tech machine can tell the difference.
  • Affordability – Lab grown diamonds are available to purchase at a much lower cost, so you can afford to buy a bigger and better-quality stone on the same budget.
  • Ethical – Unlike natural diamonds, no mining is required. No land, wildlife or local communities are displaced and their origin is guaranteed. 



Why are lab grown diamonds cheaper?

Lab grown diamonds usually cost between 40-50% less than natural diamonds. This means that you can purchase a higher quality, higher carat lab created diamond for the same budget. 

There are two key reasons why lab grown stones are more affordable.

  • A lab grown diamond can be efficiently grown in as little as two weeks making it a cost-effective process. In comparison, the cost of mining a natural diamond is far greater. 
  • There are finite number of natural diamonds on earth, whereas a lab grown diamond can be created for the demand.


Are lab grown diamonds more ethical?

Lab grown diamonds are a much more ethical choice than mined diamonds. That’s because you can be certain of their origin and that they have been ethically sourced and produced.

All lab grown diamonds can be traced back to the laboratory in which they were made. This means you can be confident in where the money paid for your diamond purchase is going.

While the Kimberley Process, established in 2003, has made strides to tackle the flow of conflict diamonds, there’s still no guarantee on the origin of natural stones. 


Environmentally conscious

Mining causes a large amount of disruption to communities of people across the globe. It can also have a devastating impact on wildlife and ecosystems above and below ground. 


Are lab grown diamonds the same quality as natural diamonds?

Lab grown diamonds have the very same properties as natural diamonds. Both are formed from carbon, which crystallises after being exposed to an extremely high temperature. 

The only difference between them is their origin; lab created diamonds are grown in a laboratory whereas natural diamonds form naturally beneath the Earth’s crust.
