1. what is a lab created diamond?
Lab created diamonds (also known as man-made diamonds, synthetic diamonds or pure grown diamonds) are grown in highly-controlled laboratory conditions that simulate the earth’s natural growing environment, producing real diamonds that are optically, physically and chemically identical to earth mined diamonds.
2. How are lab created diamonds made?
Lab created diamonds are produced by utilizing two gem-quality diamond creation processes: High Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). In both processes, a small diamond seed is placed in an environment that contains carbon. Under suitably controlled conditions, the diamond grows, atom-by-atom, layer-by-layer, recreating nature’s process.
3. How do lab created diamond and mined diamonds compare?
Both have the same physical, chemical and optical properties and emerge as rough diamonds. Both have the same hardness, specific gravity, refractive index and dispersion; are polished using the same equipment and techniques; and have the same brilliance, sparkle, fire and scintillation. Both are, in fact, diamonds.
1. Environmentally Friendly
Lab made diamonds are an eco-friendly product. By choosing a grown diamond versus an earth-mined diamond you're reducing the harmful impact mining has on the environment and native communities.
FACT: The amount of land disturbed in the creation of a man made diamond = 0.00000071 hectares/carat. The use of water is also minimized with approximately 70 litres used in the creation of a 1 carat grown diamond.
2. Unmatched Beauty & Unrivaled Quality
Our collection of lab-created diamonds are now available up to Internally Flawless (IF) in Clarity, D in Color, Excellent in Cut, and a whopping 10ct in size! Until now, beauty like this had not been seen in man made diamonds. We also offer a vast array of shapes including round brilliant, emerald, cushion, oval, heart, princess, and radiant cuts. Available colors include white, yellow, blue, pink, and green.
Every Amarley lab-created diamond is type IIa, meaning they are the purest form of diamond available. As such, they are harder and have more brilliance than a traditional type Ia diamond. Only 2% of earth-mined diamonds will ever reach this level of perfection.
3. Unbeatable Value
Lab-created diamonds are up to 40% less than their natural diamond equivalents, and at Amarley, you can save more, we reduce our profits because we want to make affordable diamond rings for everyone.
There is absolutely no reason to buy diamonds that are mined from the earth.
Today’s stones, which are grown in a lab, like flowers in a greenhouse, are in all ways superior to stones found in the ground.
