A More Sustainable Future
Much of the allure of lab grown diamonds stems from their lower environmental impact than traditional diamond mining. Diamond mining has several adverse impacts; because diamonds were formed deep underground billions of years ago, mines must go deep into the earth, displacing thousand of tons of dirt and releasing carbon into the air. Diamond mining also has a history of human exploitation, as mining is difficult and dangerous labor that the miners are not well compensated for. Purchasing lab diamonds offsets the amount of energy and water wasted and provides a more ethical path forward for diamond consumption.
Will Anyone Notice the Difference?
One of the biggest worries for those new to the idea of man-made diamonds is whether or not they'll look real. In reality, it's impossible to tell with the naked eye whether or not a diamond is created or naturally formed. Created diamonds and natural diamonds are optically and chemically indistinguishable, but with years of work, scientists have been able to make lab diamonds consistently higher quality in both color and clarity. Unless you tell all your friends, no one will be able to tell whether your partner spent ten thousand dollars on your jewelry or half that much!
What's in a Name?
Regardless of whether you use the term lab-grown diamond, engineered diamond, cultured diamond, man-made diamond, or lab-created diamond, these created diamonds are still optically and chemically identical to natural diamonds. The terms synthetic and artificial are misnomers, because lab diamonds are not fake in terms of structure or composition. Man-made stones are just as durable as natural ones and contain the same elements. Created diamonds are equal if not superior to natural stones; growing in a lab gives scientists and gemologists time to perfect their process to exclude flaws and increase clarity. The next time someone says “artificial diamond” you can be confident in knowing there is no such thing.
Have Yourself a Sparkly Day
Glittering, sparkling diamond earrings and elegant pendants made with created diamonds are a stunning addition to any jewelry collection. Lab grown diamonds can take any form, shape, or size (the largest on record is currently 155 carats!), and can be honed and polished into everything from a marquise to a teardrop. Available in a rainbow of colors, your created diamond jewelry will practically beg to be worn. Whether it's diamond stud earrings to lunch with a friend or a sweet little pendant to your routine appointments, make wearing your fine jewelry an everyday occurrence, and every day will become a special, sparkly occasion.
