Why Choose Lab Grown Diamonds?
Lab grown diamonds are a responsible choice given that mining is not required.
Lab grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds.
CVD diamonds are much more cost-effective than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality.
What Are Lab Grown Diamonds?
Lab grown diamonds are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes that 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 exhibit the same optical and chemical properties.

HOW ARE LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS MADE?
Lab-grown diamonds start with a tiny lab diamond, called a seed. The seeds are placed in a chamber called a plasma reactor. Then, a mix of gasses containing carbon is added at a very low pressure. Microwave energy is used to heat the gases and generate a plasma. When the temperatures climb over several thousand degrees, the gas molecules break apart and carbon atoms bond to the seeds, growing them one layer at a time. This method is known as Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).
