The name "Lab-grown" covers many other terms related to diamonds including "Man-made", "Cultured", "Synthetic", "Cultivated" etc. A lab-grown diamond is made through a controlled process, whereas a mined diamond is produced by geological processes or an imitation/fake diamond that is made of non-carbon material that looks alike to a real diamond.
Lab grown diamonds are actual diamonds consisting actual carbon atoms. They contribute all the eccentric attributes of natural diamonds - physical and chemical properties, but most importantly the same crystalline allure of a natural diamond.
It takes around 15 days in manufacturing a 1-carat lab-grown a diamond. However, a 3-carat diamond will take the time duration of approx. a month. In case the procedure is fastened the diamonds are expected to develop cracks with unclear cuts. In other words, there is a time limit for growing a diamond, which if disturbed, can hamper the quality of the diamond. It takes about 7-10 days for the stone to be cut and polished into a flawless diamond.
One cannot call a lab-grown diamond not real. Though they are man-made, they have all the properties, chemical and visual, of an earth mined diamond. Any jeweller or diamond consultant cannot make out the difference between the two stones without the necessary equipment. Lab-grown diamonds are produced with the same carbon atom, pressure and heat of the mined diamonds.
Almost all the lab-grown diamonds are perfect and flawless just like any earth mined diamond. But since these diamonds are grown under imitable conditions, there are chances of variations in their clarity and colour. However, Diamspark chooses to fine tune every piece into an epitome of perfection.
There is no truth in this statement. Real diamonds are completely composed of carbon. However, cubic zirconia doesn’t contain an iota of carbon. Cubic zirconia is considered to be much weaker in terms of endurance and shine than the original diamonds. They come with a completely different patterning and cut. Any experienced jeweller can easily spot a difference between a cubic zirconia and a diamond.
Yes, a lab-grown diamond is much cheaper than a mined diamond. It is usually priced at 20-30% less then a natural diamond. The prices of lab-grown diamonds are determined according to their quality, similar to the mined diamonds with consideration to the market forces. Colourful diamonds are comparatively less expensive than the natural coloured diamonds. Natural pink and natural blue coloured diamonds are the most expensive diamonds in the world. However, you can check the carat and other details on the certificate provided to you at the time of your purchase.
Lab-grown diamonds are not fake diamonds. Synthetic diamonds got the name synthetic only because they are man made. Man-made diamonds have the same carbon properties like the natural earth mined diamonds.
Customers may sometimes associate the term synthetic with imitation goods. Synthetic gemstones are made from the same substance as the mined diamonds i.e., pure carbon. Synthetic diamonds are exactly like the diamonds mined from the earth, the only difference is the origin of the two.
Man-made diamonds can only be differentiated from earth mined diamonds using specialized equipment that can detect the minor differences in trace elements and crystal growth. Using a jewellery loupe, synthetic gemstones are almost intractable to distinguish from mined diamonds. Synthetic diamonds may demonstrate unalike trace matters than Earth Mined diamonds. But this does not influence the way the stone looks.
The price difference varies based on the market and rarity of the stone’s cut and clarity, but usually, most synthetic diamonds are about 20% to 40% less than a similar earth mined diamond.
Our lab-created diamonds are grown from micro carbon seeds of already existing diamonds.
The two processes used to produce lab-grown diamonds are HPHT (high pressure high temperature) & CVD (chemical vapour deposition) using top notch technology in a controlled laboratory set up.
The HPHT method is used more widely because it provides the feature of colour enhancement. This process mimics the conditions under which natural diamonds develop beneath the surface of the earth.
Under the CVD process, it typically grows at 1100-1200 degrees Celsius or 2000-2200 degrees Fahrenheit.
It takes around 15-25 days before it’s big enough to be cut into a polished stone. This is a rough stone.
Furthermore, it takes about 7-10 days for the stone to be cut and polished into a flawless diamond.
Lab-grown diamonds are eco-friendly as well as socially conscious diamonds. Unlike natural diamonds, no mining is required to produce lab-grown diamonds. Mining adversely affects our fragile ecosystems.
Diamspark Lab-Grown Diamonds are much less impactful to the environment. They utilize significantly less resources and leave the earth undisturbed. This is what especially makes them an ecological choice. Moreover, synthetic diamonds are free of any humanitarian abuse.
Natural diamonds are called "Blood Diamonds" because they usually come from the third world countries in Africa where there is real danger to the lives of miners and hundreds of thousands of people have been killed because of regional conflicts. There is also high contamination of air because of the chemicals used in mining, which affects the health of the locals.
As lab-grown diamonds are produced in a controlled laboratory set up, the production of these diamonds is completely safe and poses no whatsoever threat to its technicians. This makes our diamonds blood-free and conflict-free.
At Diamspark, every diamond has quality finishing combined with personal touch. All our diamond seeds have been handpicked to design a meticulous blend of maximum size and brilliance possible.
Our lab-created diamonds offer excellent value, and are more affordable than natural diamonds of comparable quality and size. We at Diamspark Lab-Grown Diamonds bring to you a wide variety of lab-grown stones.
Moreover, as a part of our role towards the society, we take the matter of our ethical and environment responsibility very seriously. Our diamonds are 100% conflict free and much more ecological than compared to natural diamonds. there is an increasing awareness in buyers about natural gemstone’s origins and its effects on the environment. With a Diamspark gemstone, we provide to our customers complete details about the production of the diamonds with is eco-friendly and socially conscious.
