The Ultimate Guide to Lab Grown Diamonds

If you’ve been keeping up with the top jewelry trends, then you know that lab grown diamonds have been gaining popularity in recent years. But navigating this new option can be confusing and overwhelming. You might be asking, what are lab grown diamonds? What makes them different from mined diamonds? At David Scott Fine Jewelry, we're here to help educate our shoppers about everything related to lab grown diamonds so they make an informed decision when shopping for a beautiful piece of sparkle. In this blog post, we'll answer all your questions so you can begin your search for your forever diamond.

What Are Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds that have been created in a laboratory setting. They are made of the same material as mined or natural diamonds, but they are not extracted from the earth. Instead, scientists use advanced technology such as HPHT (high-pressure high temperature) or CVD (chemical vapor deposition) processes to create them. The result is a diamond identical in composition and sparkle to its mined counterpart without any of the environmental or ethical concerns associated with mining for natural stones.

The Benefits of Lab Grown Diamonds

The most obvious benefit of opting for a lab grown diamond is the reduced cost. Since lab grown diamonds don't require any mining, they tend to be significantly less expensive than their  counterparts. Plus, you can customize your purchase according to size and shape, all while keeping costs down. And there's no need to worry about sacrificing quality either. Many labs guarantee their stones for life and offer full transparency when it comes to grading standards and certification documents. Finally, those looking for an eco-friendly option will be pleased to know that lab grown diamonds have significantly less of an environmental impact. They also don't involve any unethical labor practices like those common with the traditional diamond industry.
