Lab grown diamonds, or also called lab created diamonds because they are created in a laboratory, unlike mined diamonds that occur naturally and are extracted from the earth. They come in various shapes and sizes and have almost identical chemical structures. There is no visible difference between these two types of diamonds, as lab diamonds look and feel precisely like mined diamonds. Lab-created diamonds are in fact real diamonds and offer the same brilliance, sparkle, and shine of a mined, mined diamond.
Mined diamonds are formed over millions of years due to intense heat and pressure, while lab-grown diamonds can be produced in just a few weeks. Mined diamonds may contain a little nitrogen, but synthetic diamonds do not. Despite their similarities, there is a significant price difference between the two.
Lab-grown diamonds are not guaranteed to be perfect, whether a diamond gown in a lab or mined from the earth- is unique. To distinguish between inclusions and blemishes and variations in color, consumers can rely on the certification which evaluates the quality of the diamond based on the 4Cs: carat, color, clarity, and cut. The certification will prominently label lab-grown diamonds. When it comes to choosing between lab-grown and mined diamonds, it ultimately depends on the buyer's priorities. In most cases, they look the same to the naked eye, but some people may perceive a mined diamond as more "real."
