Natural Diamonds vs. Lab Created (Everything you need to know)

 

Natural Diamonds Vs. Lab-Created 

When you are shopping for diamond jewelry, including diamond engagement rings, there are several options to consider including whether you prefer a naturally mined stone or one created in a laboratory. Lab-created diamonds are still an enigma to many people who may not know that the two are virtually identical. Arming yourself with a little knowledge about the similarities and differences between these diamonds can help you make the right decision for your jewelry purchase.

 

How are Lab-Created Diamonds Made?

Also known as cultured diamonds, lab-created diamonds are crafted in a carefully controlled environment that replicates the natural process in which diamonds are formed. Scientists begin with a seed crystal and, through advanced technologies and meticulous controls, remove the impurities from the crystals and manage the gases and temperatures that are required to create a diamond. The growing process is much faster than what occurs in nature and results in purer stones that are ethically sourced and leave no damaging effects on the environment. Lab-created diamonds are identical to naturally grown stones in every physical aspect, making it impossible to tell the difference between the two.

 

What are the Benefits of Lab-Grown Diamonds?

Lab-grown diamonds have numerous benefits, most notably the price. They cost significantly less than naturally-mined diamonds, without compromising on quality or appearance, allowing you to purchase a much larger, higher quality diamond than you would otherwise be able to afford. This is especially important when looking for colored diamonds, as they are much more costly than their colorless counterparts. When that elegant pink diamond is created in a lab, it is suddenly much more affordable. Another benefit of lab-grown diamonds is their impact on the environment and the human cost of mining. These stones leave no environmental footprint, making them eco-friendly and sustainable and they are always conflict-free, meaning that their manufacturing has not been used to support or finance violence in any way.

 

Which Diamond is Right for You?

There are many factors that go into your decision when selecting a loose diamond, whether that be a naturally mined stone or one lab-created. Ultimately, the choice boils down to personal preference but knowing the facts and weighing your options are key to making the right decision for you. If your concerns are ethically based, you can still purchase naturally sourced diamonds, but be sure to choose stones that follow the Kimberley Process, a certification established to ensure that mined diamonds do not finance violent governments or organizations. With a lab-created diamond, you will have the option to choose larger, high-quality diamonds at a more affordable price. Whichever type of stone you prefer, Diamonds on Wabash has an incredible selection for you to choose from.
