Lab Grown Diamonds vs. Natural Diamonds

Like diamonds mined from the Earth, lab grown diamonds, according to the Federal Trade Commission, are carbon crystallized in the isometric system with a hardness of 10 on the mohs scale, with a specific gravity of 3.52 and a refractive index of 2.42.


That’s a really scientific way of saying: there’s no difference chemically between a mined diamond and a lab grown diamond.

How Are Lab-Grown Diamonds Made?

  1. First, a high quality, lab-grown diamond seed is placed in a Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) chamber, or greenhouse.
  2. Next, hydrogen is pumped into the chamber and ignited. Methane, which is the source of carbon for diamonds, is introduced, and the diamond is left to grow, layer by layer, for about 12 weeks.
  3. After growing, the rough diamond crystal is ready to be cut. Here’s where the skill of the diamond cutter comes into play. Using techniques that have been around for generations, expert diamond cutters cut, facet and polish the gemstones.

That’s it!  pretty simple! and, almost every lab grown diamond over is laser inscribed and lab graded, identifying it as lab grown. So they’re less expensive, environmentally friendly and conflict free. Sounds perfect!
