Lab-grown diamonds are not simulants like CZ. They are diamonds. Instead
of forming over millions of years in the earth’s mantle, they are created
in rough crystal form by scientists. They are optically, visually, and
chemically identical to natural diamonds.
THE BENEFITS OF CREATED DIAMONDS
Price: Depending on size and quality, they usually cost between 15-30%
less than natural diamonds.
Ethical Appeal: For consumers concerned about ethical issues surrounding
mined diamonds (whether real or imagined), lab-grown diamonds present an
HOW CREATED DIAMONDS ARE MADE
There are two primary methods used to create diamonds in a laboratory: CVD
(Chemical Vapor Deposition) and HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature), or
a combination of both.
The HPHT method involves the application of high temperatures and
pressures to a small seed crystal, while the CVD process “grows” the
diamonds from the chemical reaction of distilled carbon gas and a seed
Many Lab-grown diamonds are created using the CVD method and are
further treated using HTHP to improve the color.
