How Lab Grown Diamonds are Made

Lab Diamond FAQ

A lab grown diamond is a real diamond. It will look visually identical to a natural diamond with the same specs. It will shine the same, wear the same, and pass diamond testers.

Both lab grown diamonds and natural diamonds are chemically and physically the exact same. Both are made of pure carbon. Both are ranked 10 out of 10 on the mohs hardness scale, making diamonds the hardest substance on Earth. A lab grown diamond will last just as long as a natural diamond.

The reason why lab grown diamonds are significantly less expensive is not because they are inferior in any way. The reason simply comes down to operation costs and expenses associated with delivering the final product to consumers. Lab grown diamonds simply cost a lot less to produce.

With natural diamonds, operation expenses include paying for the land purchase or mining rights, planning, local permitting, machinery, transportation, manpower and everything else associated with the enormous undertaking of mining diamonds. Then there are further administrative expenses such as higher taxes and duties for importing expensive items, and higher insurance costs for the overall operation. All of these expenses are passed on to the consumer.

The answer to this is an unequivocally no. A fake means that something is not authentic or it is an imitation of an original. A diamond is not a name brand or intellectual property. It is a material, a universal substance, and therefore authenticity is irrelevant. It is also not an imitation of a diamond because it IS a diamond in literally every way.

The best analogy is to think about the world before refrigerators. Ice was only created in nature. Now, we all make ice in the fridge and we don't think twice about it. It's not "fake" ice, nor is it an imitation of natural ice. It IS ice. It is frozen H2O molecules created by technology instead of cold weather.

A lab grown diamond is simply a diamond that was created with modern technology.

Lab grown diamonds are very easy to care for. You would treat them exactly like natural gemstones. Any store bought liquid diamond cleaner would be safe to use. The easiest at-home solution is to mix warm water with a few drops of hand soap or window cleaner. The stones can be cleaned with this solution using a soft or old toothbrush. Carefully and thoroughly clean all sides of the jewelry item or stone, then rinse with lukewarm water. Your diamond jewelry will look new once again!

Lab grown diamonds are recognized and certified by leading gemological laboratories such as the The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), International Gemological Institute (IGI) , and The American Gem Society (AGS). They are graded by the same scale and scope as natural diamonds, including the 4 C's.
