What is a lab diamond ?

What is a lab diamond ?

Lab grown diamonds are grown in state-of-the-art laboratories using advanced technology that emulates natural diamond-growing procedures. Lab diamonds and mined diamonds are optically the same as they have the same chemical structure and composition. Even a trained eye would need help to differentiate between the two.

Shopping for a lab grown diamond is a wise, ethical, and ecological decision as you play your part in saving the planet while also obtaining a 100% conflict-free gemstone. Sustainable, eco-friendly, and well within budgets; these features make lab diamonds the future of the diamond industry!

Lab Grown Vs. Natural Diamond

Natural diamonds form under the earth's mantle through intense heat and pressure over billions of years. In contrast, lab diamonds are grown in advanced laboratories using cutting-edge technology as a sustainable and 100% conflict-free alternative.

World-renowned diamond certification institutions like IGI and GIA grade both these types of diamonds based on factors such as their cut, color, clarity, and carat. While both diamonds are equally durable and rate 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, lab created diamonds are priced better than natural diamonds and can cost up to 90% less.

Diamond Certification

Diamond Certification

Lab grown diamonds undergo a grading and certification system just like mined stones. These are graded by independent diamond certification labs based on their cut, clarity, color, and carat (the 4C’s). The Friendly Diamonds’ lab created diamonds are certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and International Gemological Institute (IGI).

How are lab diamonds made

How are lab diamonds made ?

To know how lab diamonds are created or how lab diamonds are grown, you must first understand how mined diamonds are formed. When exposed to heat and pressure, carbon dioxide forms into diamonds inside the earth's core and is transported to the earth's top layers through volcanic eruptions.

Lab grown diamonds are created by emulating these natural conditions of the earth through advanced technological processes like HPHT and CVD.
