About Lab Grown Diamonds

Exactly What are Diamonds Grown in a Laboratory?

Diamonds produced in a laboratory are created from a single seed using the same high temperatures and pressures found in the Earth's crust, making them almost indistinguishable from those mined from the ground.

About lab grown diamond


There is no mining involved. Thus, they are kind to the environment. Because they are not associated with conflict zones, this kind of diamond has gained widespread popularity across the globe. In addition, they are more consistent and less expensive than genuine diamonds.

Is that Diamond Real?

The most cutting-edge gem labs confirm it to be a diamond. Therefore, yes, it is a genuine diamond. The sole distinction is that these diamonds are not mined from the ground but created in a laboratory setting. Luxury Brand Jewellery presents her magnificent line of designer jewellery, which is set with brilliant lab-grown diamonds and is fully refundable.

Where does it Diverge from the Moissanite Theory?

In terms of solitaires, moissanite is still the best choice since the price of lab-grown diamond solitaires is still fairly high, coming in at roughly 20% - 30% of the price of Natural diamonds, while the price of Moissanites is just a fraction of Natural diamonds.

Does it Come in Every Shade and Clarity, or Only the Same?

True, lab-grown diamonds come in the same range of hues and clarity as natural diamonds. Still, Luxury Brand Jewellery is committed to providing only the highest quality to its customers, which is why its jewellery has stones that are only EF colour, VVS-VS clarity, and have an ideal cut.

However, Since it Was Created in the Laboratory, How Can it be Considered a Real Diamond?

These diamonds are developed from a single carbon seed and have the same traits and qualities as Natural diamonds, much as test tube babies are genuine despite being created in a lab.

As an added assurance that they are genuine Diamonds and not cubic zirconia, certifications from top-tier laboratories have been provided. In addition, they provide a null and void repurchase in the case of synthetic diamonds.

What Happens to it Over Time—does it Fade Away, or Do the Clouds Roll in?

No! It lasts as long as a natural diamond.

What is the Process for Making Synthetic Diamonds in a Laboratory?

It took over 60 years of research and development to perfect the technology needed to create diamonds of gem grade. There are still colour and clarity variances in produced diamonds since the techniques mimic natural development. That is to say; not every manufactured diamond is transparent and flaw-free.

About lab grown diamond


These days, there are two main ways to cultivate diamonds:

  • Hypercritical (High Pressure, High Temperature)

To create HPHT diamonds, enormous pressure cookers are used. Once graphite is introduced on top of the diamond seeds in a growth cell, the diamonds begin to develop.

Approximately 70,000 times the pressure at sea level is applied while heating the pressure cooker to a temperature of 1500 degrees C. As a result of the high heat and pressure, the graphite in the growth cell turns into liquid carbon, which is then cooled slowly to solidify into a diamond, the hardest known form of carbon.

  • CVD, Or Chemical Vapour Deposition

Diamonds grown by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) are created in vacuum plasma reactors. The process involves placing thin diamond plates in a growing cell and injecting hydrocarbon gas on top of the diamond plates.

Hydrocarbon gas's bonds are broken by high-powered microwaves, releasing individual carbon and hydrogen molecules. The free carbon produced inside the reactor "precipitates" onto the diamond plates, much as snowflakes accumulate on a table, causing the diamond to grow atom by atom upwards.

The CVD diamonds produced are then "compressed" using very high pressure, much like how a footprint compacts snow. This extra process enhances the diamond's crystal quality, enhancing colour and illumination.

Research on CVD has been more popular in recent years, leading to the increased usage of CVD and its variants. Where these procedures differ is in how they kick off chemical reactions.

Differences Between Lab-Grown And All-Natural Diamonds

True, lab-grown diamonds come in the same range of hues and clarity as natural diamonds. Still, Luxury Brand Jewellery is committed to providing only the highest quality to its customers, which is why its jewellery has stones that are only EF colour, VVS-VS clarity, and have an ideal cut.

About lab grown diamond






Since our lab-grown diamonds are grown and polished in a laboratory, they originate from developed nations.

When a jewellery set with a natural diamond reaches you, it has been through so many hands that its history is lost. As a result, diamond certificates often include just "assumed origin" for the country of origin.

Environmental Impact

Laboratory-grown diamonds have zero environmental effects since their production occurs in a sterile laboratory.

Air quality is negatively impacted due to the disturbance of hundreds of hectares of soil, the release of excessive amounts of carbon, and the subsequent release of greenhouse gases from diamond mining.


The production of lab-grown diamonds has no harmful effects on the surrounding community.

Not even Kimberley Process certification can ensure that a diamond came from a mine that wasn't involved in a civil war.


Up to 40 per cent more expensive than natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are still quite inexpensive.

The market for natural diamonds is artificially capped at inflated prices that exceed their fair market value.


The quality of lab-grown diamonds is unmatched. Type IIA diamonds are the highest quality diamonds.

Type Ia diamonds, which make up almost all natural diamonds, are the most numerous but the least pure.



Is the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) Involved in the Certification Process for Diamonds Used in High-end Jewellery?

Diamonds used in high-end pieces of jewellery always have IGI certificates. Since GIA does not certify the colour and purity of lab-grown diamonds, we cannot collaborate with them.

For instance, if a stone has a clarity level of VS2, it will be given the same grade as a VS1 diamond: VS. Indeed, the same holds for hue. A stone classified as "Near Colorless G/H/I/ J" has an I colour.

We do not feel confident in this strategy since it might mislead our clients. In addition, this grading system prevents us from being forthright and honest with our consumers, which we highly value.

Can a Diamond Tester Detect Man-Made Diamonds?

Compared to mined diamonds, synthetic diamonds perform identically in terms of thermal and electrical conductivity. That's why they'll ace the test for diamond testers.

How Easily can Man-Made Diamonds be Disguised from Natural Ones?

Most jewellers won't be able to identify the difference between a lab-grown diamond and a mined diamond since they look the same.

(Assuming there are no inscriptions on the diamond's girdle, of course.) But jewellers who are also gemologists may be able to detect with a strong microscope whether a diamond is lab-grown. Sending it to a gemological lab is still the only way to know.

Aren't Laboratory-Grown Diamonds "Inexpensive?"

The perceived low cost of lab-created diamonds has led some to dismiss them as unsuitable for an engagement ring. But many insist that a diamond is a diamond, whether mined or created in a lab. Others, concerned about the impact of diamond mining on the environment and ethics, choose lab-grown stones.

People have only recently begun reevaluating their perception of lab-grown diamonds as "cheap." But opinions are shifting quickly. People in the 21-40 age range who are in the market for an engagement ring are more open to purchasing a lab-grown diamond.

This is hardly shocking due to the sticker shock associated with purchasing a genuine diamond. However, a lab-grown diamond will cost 30–40 per cent less than a similar real diamond. And they have the same appearance. Therefore, a lab-grown diamond is an affordable and ethical alternative to a mined diamond.

Isn't it True that a Diamond Made in a Laboratory is Still Fake?

Diamonds created in a laboratory are of far higher quality than synthetic diamonds. In the past, Glass was often used to make imitation diamonds.

Glass can't hold a candle to a well-cut diamond in terms of durability or lustre. In addition, natural zircon and topaz stones, as well as the synthetic cubic zirconia often used to imitate diamonds, may crack with Time. Synthetic diamonds made in a lab do not have these disadvantages. Instead, they sparkle and last as long as any real diamond.

There is, however, nothing improper with choosing a diamond imitation. An example is a moissanite, which has a large fan following due to being a long-lasting, less expensive diamond substitute. Their appearance is very similar to that of diamonds. These differences are so minute that only a trained eye could see them.


Lab-grown diamonds have physically, chemically, and optically the same properties as Earth-mined diamonds. So, when you buy a lab-grown diamond ring or other jewellery, rest assured that you are getting a "real" diamond with all the associated benefits. Thanks
