What exactly are lab-grown diamonds?
Lab-grown diamonds are sometimes referred to as cultured or man-made diamonds. They are created in a laboratory using high-technology apparatus that recreates the conditions that cause diamonds to develop naturally. They are formed from the very same materials and exposed to the same conditions, so lab-grown diamonds are both visually and chemically identical to natural diamonds.
How do we make lab-grown diamonds?
Harry and Co.'s lab-grown diamonds are produced in a laboratory using specialist techniques. Each diamond begins as a very small carbon seed. This is exposed to extremes of heat and pressure or entered into a deposition process called CVD. The aim is to mimic the complex process that leads to natural diamond formation. The diamond then grows in the laboratory over a period of 6-10 weeks, before being cut and polished using the same techniques as for natural diamonds.
So it goes like this:
- Diamond seed
- Application of heat and pressure
- The diamond begins to grow
- The diamond is ready to be cut and polished.
Why choose lab-grown diamonds?
Value for money
Lab-grown diamonds can be as much as 30% cheaper than those found in nature. This is ideal for anyone on a limited budget or looking to get more diamonds for their money.
Quality and beauty
Lab-grown diamonds possess all the quality and beauty of the natural variety. They are actually identical both visually and chemically - the only difference is their origin.
Lab-grown diamonds have become a revelation for the jewellery industry. They are created in a laboratory using state-of-the-art technology to offer a modern, remarkable alternative to natural stones.
Are lab-grown diamonds real?
In a word: yes! Lab-grown diamonds are the same as the natural variety, only they are created differently. There is absolutely no difference visually or chemically, so only highly specialised equipment can tell the difference between the two.
Lab-grown diamonds vs. natural diamonds
There is no difference in quality or brilliance between lab-grown diamonds and natural ones. As they are visually and chemically identical, there is no telling the difference between the two. The only area where they differ is their origin since lab-grown diamonds are man-made in a lab setting. Natural diamonds, on the other hand, form naturally within the Earth's mantle. While many people still prefer the natural variety, lab diamonds are up to 30% cheaper than a natural alternative of matching size and quality.
