Lab-Grown Diamonds : FAQ's
Lab-grown diamonds (or engineered, man-made or cultured diamonds) are created in a laboratory setting using advanced technology. Lab-grown diamonds have the same arrangement of carbon atoms to give you the characteristic crystal structure.
Lab-grown diamonds are created through a process called chemical vapour deposition (CVD) or high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) method. In layman’s terms, the condition in the earth’s crust that leads to the formation of sustainable diamonds is replicated in a controlled environment.
Lab-grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as natural diamonds, but they are more affordable and have a smaller environmental impact.
Yes, man-made diamonds are real diamonds. They have the same crystal structure and chemical composition as natural diamonds and can be shaped to meet all your adornment needs.
Yes, man-made diamonds are considered ethical and sustainable as they require no mining, have a lower carbon footprint, and don’t contribute to issues like child labour or environmental damage associated with some natural diamond mining.
Lab-grown diamonds are also known as synthetic diamonds, cultured diamonds, man-made diamonds or engineered diamonds.
Trained gemologists can use specialised equipment to distinguish between synthetic diamonds and natural diamonds based on their unique growth patterns and certain identifying features. However, on the surface, it is impossible to tell a synthetic diamond and a naturally mined diamond apart.
Yes, synthetic diamonds are typically more affordable than natural diamonds of similar size and quality.
Lab-grown diamonds have the same level of durability as natural diamonds since they both have the exact same chemical structure. They are equally hard and resistant to scratches.
Yes! Lab-grown diamonds can undergo the same certification process as natural diamonds. Reputable gemological laboratories issue certificates that provide detailed information about a lab-grown diamond’s characteristics, including the 4Cs (carat weight, cut, colour, and clarity).
Lab-grown diamonds can be a smart investment choice. With their increasing popularity and affordability, they offer the potential for value retention and appreciation. However, as with any investment, it’s important to conduct thorough research and seek professional advice.
To care for lab-grown diamond jewellery, you can follow the same practices as with natural diamond jewellery. Regular cleaning with mild soapy water and gentle brushing using a soft toothbrush will keep your lab-grown diamonds looking radiant and sparkly.
Yes, lab-grown diamonds can be resized or repaired by professional jewellers, just like natural diamonds. However, it’s essential to choose a reputable jeweller experienced in working with lab-grown diamonds.
Lab-grown diamonds can generally be insured through jewellery insurance providers. However, it’s advisable to check with your insurance company to ensure they cover lab-grown diamonds and inquire about any specific considerations or requirements.
