Certified & Identical to Mined‎ Stones 
Lab-Grown Diamonds are finally here...
Just—
What are they?
"They're Truly Diamonds & NOT Synthetic"
 

 

 

We've been promised them since the 1950s, after literally centuries of alchemist and modern scientific hopes and dreams and experimentation, this marvel, this eccentricity of nature, the DIAMOND, has  at long last become commercially feasible...

Lab-created diamonds are produced by utilizing two gem-quality diamond creation processes: High Pressure-High Temperature and Chemical Vapor Deposition. In both processes, a small diamond seed is placed in an environment that contains carbon, the atomic component diamond. Under suitably controlled conditions, the diamond grows, atom-by-atom, layer-by-layer, recreating nature’s process.

How do lab-created diamonds and natural diamonds compare? Both have the same physical, chemical and optical properties and emerge as rough diamonds. Both have the same hardness, specific gravity, refractive index and dispersion factor; are polished using the same equipment and techniques; and have the same brilliance, sparkle, fire and scintillation. Both are, in fact, diamond.

A lab-grown diamond is equal in every way to one that was created in the earth over thousands of years. A lab-grown diamond is no less identical in physical makeup to a mined diamond than a plant grown in a greenhouse compared to one grown in your yard. The process may be different...
but lab-grown diamonds are identical in their physical makeup to those from the more traditional method of production.

Lab-grown diamonds are not chemically synthesized. They are crystalline forms of carbon that have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as mined diamonds. And just like a mined diamond, a lab-grown diamond is exposed to immense pressure and heat in order to create a rough diamond. That rough diamond is analyzed, marked, lasered, and then cut and polished using the same techniques and equipment as a mined diamond.

Lab-created colorless diamonds are exactly comparable in every way to the purest form produced in nature (accounting for only 2% of the global production of mined diamonds). These diamonds are graded to the same specifications as mined diamonds by leading independent gemological institutes.

 

 

Great Value
On average, lab-grown white diamonds are priced at about 25% less than mined diamonds.

Eco-friendly and Conflict Free
Grown in a controlled environment, each diamond is produced using modest amounts of energy and with very little overall environmental impact. they are 100%
origin-guaranteed and fully disclosed as lab-grown.

Rare Purity
All lab-grown white diamonds are "Type IIa" and are
devoid of all nitrogen, the chief impurity in mined
diamonds. Yet, like mined diamonds, all lab-grown
diamonds are one-of-a-kind, no two alike.

NOTE from Wikipedia:
Type
IIa diamonds make up 1–2% of all natural diamonds. These diamonds are almost or entirely devoid of impurities, and consequently are usually colorless and have the highest thermal conductivity. They are very transparent in ultraviolet, down to 230 nm. Occasionally, while Type IIa diamonds are being extruded towards the surface of the Earth, the pressure and tension can cause structural anomalies arising through plastic deformation during the growth of the tetrahedral crystal structure, leading to imperfections. These imperfections can confer a yellow, brown, orange, pink, red, or purple color to the gem.  Type IIa diamonds constitute a great percentage of Australian production. Many large famous diamonds, e.g. Cullinan and Koh-i-Noor (in the British Crown Jewels), are Type IIa.

Lab-created diamonds are NOT created by a chemical reaction of two or more simpler substances, but by crystal growth process, atom by atom, the same as in nature. Therefore, by definition, lab-created diamonds are not synthetic.
