Lab grown diamonds are REAL diamonds grown by exactly replicating the diamond creation process from under the surface of the earth. It all begins with a natural diamond seed. The seed is placed in the CVD plasma chamber and an intense environment of temperature and pressure is created just like that found under the earth. Gases are infused and along with the right combination of pressure and temperature conditions, carbon formations develop into rough diamonds.
A thin layer of natural diamond is taken as the seed.
The diamond seed is placed in the CVD plasma sector.
The same environment is re-created in the CVD reactor.
Carbon disintegrates to form layers on the diamond seed.
This results in a rough diamond, same as a mined one.
The cutting and polishing process is the same for both.
CVD diamond is a Type IIa diamond; the purest type.
It is 100% carbon composed with better shine and luster.
[Lab grown diamonds] are real diamonds. They have the same optical, chemical, thermal, and physical features.”
– Matthew Hall, Director, Gemological Institute of America (GIA)
These diamonds are grown in labs and not found in mines, hence leaving the Earth free of mining manipulations. Additionally, they are less expensive to grow since they don’t incur mining costs; the pricing benefit of which is passed on to the consumers.
A quick factoid:
1 CARAT of Lab Grown Diamond can SAVE:
109 Gallons of WATER
250 Tonnes of LAND
50% of your MONEY
1 carat of lab grown diamond can save upto
Each year, 150 million carats of natural diamond destroys..
