What are Lab-Grown Diamonds?

A lab-grown diamond is a gemstone created in a controlled environment (laboratory) by expert professionals. It is a man-made diamond that mirrors the natural earth-grown diamond. A lab-grown diamond is manufactured by replicating the natural condition and formation process of an earth-grown diamond in a laboratory setting.

What are Lab-Grown Diamonds Called?

Due to their growing popularity, lab-created diamonds are referred to by various names across the globe. Some of the common names of lab diamonds are:

  1. Synthetic Diamonds
  2. Artificial Diamonds
  3. Cultured Diamonds
  4. Cultivated Diamonds
  5. Man-Made Diamonds
  6. Manufactured or Lab-Created Diamonds

Benefits of Purchasing Lab-Created Diamonds

  1. Ethical: Lab-grown diamonds are conflict-free, ensuring they do not fund armed conflict or human rights abuses. Lab diamonds are manufactured in transparent and fair human conditions.

  2. Sustainable: Creating lab-grown diamonds has a lower environmental impact than mining, reducing land disruption, water usage, and pollution.

  3. Cost-Effective: Lab-grown diamond prices are affordable, as they are 30-40% less expensive than natural diamonds of similar quality and size.

  4. Resale Value: Lab-made diamonds have a growing resale value. So, once you buy them, you can resell them at a reasonable rate after long-term usage.

Are Lab-Grown Diamonds Real Diamonds?

Yes, lab-made diamonds are 100% real. They are physically, chemically and optically identical to their natural counterparts. Additionally, lab-grown diamonds have the same brilliance, hardness, and sparkle as natural diamonds. 

Some lab diamonds are meticulously crafted and perfected to be free from blemishes and inclusions. Lab-grown diamonds are also certified by gemological institutes and laboratories like the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and the IGI (International Gemological Institute).

How are Lab-Grown Diamonds Produced?

Lab diamonds are made using two main methods:

  1. HTHP: The HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) process involves mimicking natural diamond formation by applying high pressure (approximately 5-6 GPa) and high temperature (about 1,300-1,600¬įC) to a carbon atom. The carbon is gradually converted into a diamond crystal during the formation process.

  2. CVD: CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) creates diamonds by placing a diamond seed (usually produced through the HTHP process) in a chamber filled with carbon-rich gas, such as methane. The heated gas breaks down the carbon atoms, which are then deposited onto the diamond seed, layer by layer, forming a diamond.

Are Lab Diamonds at Stefee Jewels Ethically Sourced?

At Stefee Jewels, all our lab diamonds are 100% ethically sourced by incorporating HTHP and CVD procedures at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Our lab-grown diamonds are GIA-certified.

What are the Differences between Natural and Lab Diamonds?

The first thing an individual notices before buying lab-created diamonds is the difference between natural and artificial diamonds. Visually and physically, a lab-grown diamond bears no difference from a natural diamond. 

For this reason, lab Grown diamonds India are registered as real diamonds when tested. Even the most experienced gemologists can only find a difference with specialised equipment available in labs. One can only know whether it is a natural or lab-grown diamond through a grading report.

Factors Influencing Prices of Lab-Grown Diamonds

The 4 C's that influence lab-grown diamond prices are:

  1. Carat: Carat weight affects a diamond's price. Larger carat diamonds are rarer and more expensive.

  2. Cut: The cut of a lab diamond is the shape of the crystal. If cut with precision, it indicates a better quality and impacts the brilliance and value of the stone.

  3. Clarity: Clarity measures inclusions and blemishes; higher clarity diamonds, with fewer flaws, are more valuable.

  4. Colour: Lab-grown diamonds are available in transparent and shades of yellow, pink, blue and red. Transparent or colourless diamonds are more in demand and expensive.
