This expansion of our product line is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing our customers with a wide range of choices.
Earth Mined Diamonds vs Lab Grown Diamonds
You may be wondering about the difference between earth-mined diamonds and lab-grown diamonds. Both types of diamonds have the same carbon arrangement and molecular composition, but the difference lies in how they are formed. Lab-grown diamonds are created in a laboratory using cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond formation process. These diamonds possess the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as their earth-mined counterparts but are cultivated in a controlled environment. This process takes about one month for most size diamonds. In contrast, earth-mined diamonds take millions of years to form.
The Price Difference
Earth mined diamonds are more expensive than their lab grown counterparts thanks to their rarity and the time it takes for them to form in the earth’s crust. If your budget and your dream ring are not aligning, a lab grown diamond may be a great option for you.
Drawbacks to Lab Grown Diamonds
Due to being relatively new to the market, lab grown diamonds' long-term financial value is hard to predict. If you are buying a piece that you plan to love and wear forever, this might not be a big consideration for you.
How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Evaluated?
Like any other diamond! Optically they are exactly the same as earth mined diamonds - both graded on the same Four C’s scale: Clarity, cut, color, and carat. In short, unless someone asks you: “Is that a lab grown or earth mined diamond?” the difference is indistinguishable. ;)
For some people, the price and environmental impact of lab grown diamonds is a huge benefit. Others appreciate the rarity, history, and symbolism often associated with earth mined diamonds. Ultimately, the choice between earth mined and lab grown diamonds is a personal one that depends on individual values and preferences. We are proud to offer both options to our customers and encourage them to consider the pros and cons of each when making their decision.
