What is The Difference Between Lab Grown Diamonds and Mined Diamonds?
Mined diamonds are the "natural diamonds" that we know and are accustomed to. They are formed about 80 miles under the earth at super hot temperatures and have developed under high pressure over a time period of 1 to 3 billion years. The long development process, the scarcity and beautiful sparkle make them a highly sought-after and expensive good.
Lab grown diamonds, however, are made in a laboratory using advanced technological processes, involving high temperature and high pressure. In laboratory same conditions are achieved as for natural diamond production with the advancement in technology.
Lab grown diamonds look and feel exactly the same as regular diamonds. Obviously, they are much cheaper to produce and buy and can be made in the UK or US, rather than penetrating the deep mines of rural Africa, Australia or Canada – so they are far more accessible to us.
Similarly, they pose lower risks to humans who cultivate the diamonds, with no requirement of mining hundreds of miles underground or laboured through coercion or political regimes (blood diamonds). Hence, there is a huge ethical and environmental argument to use lab grown diamonds over ‘real minded diamonds.’
Why Should I Get a Lab Grown Diamond Ring?
Lab grown diamonds have burst on the scene and are popular because of their low price, despite being real diamonds and the fact that even experts cannot tell the difference.
-Around 30% to 40% cheaper
-Same look as real diamonds
From an ethical standpoint, customers know that their diamonds have not been sourced from war-torn countries or have been stolen, but instead have been created through technology processes and still contain diamond components.
Environmentally, they are processed in a way that is more eco-friendly and do not require the huge energy or heavy machinery used for mining traditional diamonds.
