Natural vs. Lab created diamonds
How to make the best possible decision? Natural or Lab created diamond?
The market is always evolving and customers are expecting industries to offer them new alternatives. Well, the jewellery industry is no different. Lab created diamonds are now a huge part of this industry. If you aren’t familiar, you can find a little summary here. They are also known as lab grown or cultured diamonds and are developed in highly controlled laboratory environments using innovative technological processes, which duplicate the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the Earth’s crust.
These lab created diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since they are made of the same material as natural diamonds, they display the same optical, physical and chemical properties.
Now, here’s the fun part- you can actually compare apples to apples while shopping. It can be for the engagement ring of your dreams or this stunning diamond pair of earrings you always wanted. Since they are chemically identical and quality graded in the same way, it’s easy to choose between a natural or lab created diamond.
Here are a few options of our customers’ favourite engagement rings, the average price difference being between 40% to 50% less while opting for lab created diamonds.
