Characteristics of Lab-Created Diamonds
At Prestige Jewellers, we offer our customers a vast selection of diamonds, including lab-grown and naturally-mined. Laboratory-grown diamonds offer desirable qualities that make them more ideal for some people. They are called lab-grown diamonds because they are formed in a laboratory using tiny diamonds. Layers of pure carbon are added to the gemstone using one of a few advanced methods, growing the diamond to a jewellery-ready size. They are identical to jewels found in nature with a few distinct differences. Discover if lab-grown diamonds are right for you with this guide from Prestige Jewellers.
Why Buy Lab-Created Diamonds?
Laboratory-grown diamonds are the result of a highly controlled process. Since they can be made to supply the demand, they are less expensive than their natural counterparts. Buyers can splurge on larger gems or reallocate their budget for a designer setting. Another benefit is that they are all high-grade and flawless. This ensures that any ring with a lab-grown stone will be peerlessly bright and vibrant. All lab-grown diamonds are also sure to be conflict-free, so you can feel good about an ethical purchase. While the Kimberley Process has made great strides in the past 20 years and made modern diamonds 99% conflict-free, only lab-grown varieties are 100% guaranteed.
Are Laboratory-Grown Diamonds Right for You?
Whether lab-grown diamonds are suitable for you depends on your priorities. If you are looking for a high-end yet affordable alternative to natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are a great choice. Unlike cubic zirconia and moissanite, these are the real thing. However, natural diamonds are better investments as they are more rare, and many find their natural flaws desirable. Inclusions and blemishes make the gemstone more distinctive. Almost all lab-grown diamonds are nearly identical, with little to no blemishes. To jewellers, their perfection is their only giveaway.
