Lab Grown Diamonds Brisbane
How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Created?
Lab grown diamonds are an excellent choice for those seeking beautiful, ethical and affordable diamonds. Lab grown diamonds are created in a laboratory under controlled conditions, so they are completely eco-friendly and conflict-free while remaining chemically and optically identical to natural diamonds.
The Lab Created Diamond Process
- A small diamond seed is placed in a chamber where it is subjected to intense heat and pressure.
- This causes the carbon atoms in the diamond seed to rearrange and bond together, resulting in a larger diamond.
- The lab created diamond is then cut and polished to create a beautiful and sparkly gemstone.
Benefits Of Lab Grown Diamonds
When it comes to lab-created diamonds, there are numerous benefits that you can enjoy.
Lab grown diamonds can cost up to 30% less than natural diamonds. This makes them a great option for those on a budget, or for those who want to save money on their engagement ring or other piece of jewellery.
Lab grown diamonds are much more eco-friendly than natural diamonds. They don’t require mining, which can damage the environment. Plus, they don’t contribute to conflict in areas where diamond mines are located.
Lab created diamonds are also a more ethical option than natural diamonds. They aren’t mined, so there’s no risk of child labour or other unethical practices being involved in their production.
Physically And Chemically Identical
Lab grown diamonds are physically and chemically identical to natural diamonds. So, if you’re looking for a diamond that looks and feels the same as a mined diamond, but without the negative environmental and ethical impacts, lab created diamonds are a great option.
Choosing The Right Lab Grown Diamond
When it comes to choosing the perfect lab grown diamond, there are a few things to keep in mind. Carat weight, cut, clarity and colour are the main characteristics that will affect a lab diamond’s price and overall appearance.
Carat weight is the first thing most people think of when shopping for diamonds, and it’s also one of the main factors that affects a diamond’s price. Lab grown diamonds are available in a wide range of carat weights, from less than half a carat to several carats. The size of the diamond you choose will ultimately be a matter of personal preference, but it’s important to keep in mind that the bigger the diamond, the more expensive it will be.
Cut is another important factor to consider when shopping for lab grown diamonds. The cut of a diamond determines its overall shape and affects its ability to reflect light. Lab grown diamonds are available in a variety of cuts, including round, princess, emerald, and marquise.
When it comes to clarity, lab grown diamonds are typically graded on a scale of I-J, with I being the highest quality. Lab grown diamonds with a clarity grade of I have no visible blemishes or inclusions, while those with a clarity grade of J have very few blemishes or inclusions that are barely visible to the naked eye.
Finally, colour is another important consideration when shopping for lab grown diamonds. Lab grown diamonds are available in a range of colours, from colourless to yellow, green, and even blue.
