As real and pure as a mined diamond, our certified lab-grown diamonds pair the same brilliance with a more attractive cost.
Tell your personal story with lab-grown diamonds.
A lab-created diamond is one that is grown or created in a lab instead of in the natural world. Diamonds that are created in a lab are still real diamonds. Their chemical makeup is the same as naturally occurring diamonds.
Lab-created diamonds are made through one of two processes. The first is called High Pressure-High Temperature (HPT). A tiny piece of diamond known as a seed is placed in carbon, and high pressures and temperatures are applied. The carbon melts and forms a crystal, which eventually becomes a diamond.
The second way diamonds are made in a lab is known as Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). In this process, the seed is combined with carbon-rich gas under high heat. The heat causes pure carbon in the air to crystalize and adhere to the seed, eventually forming a diamond.
You can buy lab-grown diamonds at many jewelers or other places where diamonds are sold. You can purchase lab-grown diamonds for engagement rings and other jewelry at Allurez.
Other than origin, there isn't really much of a difference between naturally occurring diamonds and those that are made in a lab. They look the same to the untrained eye. Experienced jewelers can tell the difference because lab diamonds are marked with a tiny inscription that can only be viewed via a jeweler's lens.
Lab-grown diamonds are still diamonds, and they do come with the price tag to match. That being said, they are generally less expensive than earth diamonds. That's not because they're lower quality but because mining diamonds from the earth is an expensive endeavor. When you buy a lab diamond, the savings associated with not having to mine it are typically passed on to you.
Yes, lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds. There is no structural or chemical difference between lab-made diamonds and diamonds that occur naturally.
If you're looking for a beautiful stone for a piece of jewelry that can be cherished and even passed down through the years, the answer is yes. Lab diamonds are long-lasting and beautiful. However, they are not as intrinsically valuable as earth diamonds simply because they don't have a history that dates back billions of years.
Lab-grown diamonds are certified and graded the same way as other diamonds. That means they're graded with the 4 Cs: carat, cut, color and clarity.
