The Lab Grown Diamond (LGD) Get Educated! Perfect for your Diamond Engagement Ring.

Posted by

If you have not heard, lab-grown Diamonds are popular and will continue to grow in popularity as an option for the consumer. So, it is important that you become educated if you are in the process of deciding on a Natural Diamond or a Lab-grown Diamond for your engagement ring, earrings, necklace, or bracelet.

“Lab-grown Diamonds offer customers with an alternative option at a very attractive price. A laboratory-grown Diamond, also know as “laboratory-created”, “synthetic,” or “lab-grown”, is a Diamond that appears identical to its natural, earth mined counterpart. It possesses the same chemical composition and physical properties as a natural Diamond. Even to the experienced professional eye, lab-grown Diamonds look exactly the same as a natural Diamond.

They are optically, chemically, and physically identical to a natural Diamond. Lab-grown Diamonds are not simulants. Scientists create them in a lab. They start with rough crystals and are grown using either HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) or CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) – sometimes both methods. Lab-grown Diamonds can cost from 30-50% less than Natural Diamonds.”
