What is a Lab-grown Diamond?

Before we get into the perks of buying a lab-grown diamond, let’s explain the specs of these stones. Not to be confused with other types of diamond-simulants, like moissanite or cubic zirconia, lab-grown diamonds share the exact chemical makeup as diamonds. These stones are created using the same chemical properties, and under simulated lab conditions that mimic those naturally occurring when diamonds are formed in nature.

That means these stones share the same visual, physical, and chemical characteristics as natural diamonds. The only difference is these stones are formed in a highly controlled laboratory environment.

1. Ideal Brightness & Clarity

Since lab-grown diamonds are physically identical to natural diamonds, all the same options are available for your wedding ring. Lab-grown diamonds are offered in the same sizes, cuts, and designs. However, during the creation of lab-grown diamonds, these stones don’t contain the same inclusions that naturally formed diamonds often do. What does this mean? You get a clearer, brighter stone that is nearly flawless.

2. Colored Diamonds

Due to the unique and often rare processes of nature, colorful natural diamonds can come along with a very high price tag. They can also be difficult to find in the size and shape that you’re after. If you’re interested in a pink, yellow, or blue diamond, a lab-grown option might be the perfect fit. Colorful lab-grown diamonds sell for much more reasonable prices when compared to their naturally forming counterparts. And because of the lab’s ability to create these unique chemical compounds, you can find your perfectly colored stone without an endless search.

3. Smaller Budgets & Bigger Diamonds

A lab-grown diamond is about 50% cheaper than a mined diamond of similar cut, clarity, and size. With a cheaper price tag, comes the option to create your ultimate dream wedding ring for those with smaller budgets. No, this doesn’t mean a “cheap” quality ring. But, it does mean you’ve cut out the middlemen from a very lengthy supply chain, and instead, opted for a diamond created without all that extra time and travel. In short, a smaller budget can buy you a bigger lab-grown diamond.

4. Save Money For Other Big Life Milestones

By saving money on your engagement and wedding rings you can allot that money elsewhere. Anywhere from more funds for wedding planning, to investing in starting a new life together. Yes, we give you permission to opt for a lab-grown diamond and splurge on a more extravagant honeymoon with hotel upgrades, to start!

5. Lab-grown Diamonds are Inclusive

With a lower price tag, comes the notion that lab-grown diamonds are a more inclusive option for couples. When shopping for a wedding dress, many brides opt for designers that offer inclusive styles and size ranges. Lab-grown diamonds are the same idea. No matter where you live, what your style is, or what your price range is, lab-grown diamonds are more accessible to couples of all backgrounds.

6. They’re Eco-Conscious & Ethical

One of the biggest factors for couples looking to purchase a lab-grown diamond is the ethical decision behind it. Traditionally mined diamonds disrupt ecosystems, contribute to inhumane work environments, and destroy the earth’s naturally occurring landscapes. They also require a considerable amount of energy, from mining to distribution. Lab-grown diamonds can be created anywhere in the world, and certified easily within the lab’s processes. A lab-grown diamond doesn’t have a harmful history, just a very bright and sparkling future.
