Diamonds are the hardest known natural material on Earth. Diamonds have been treasured throughout history as a symbol of love, power, and luxury. Lab-grown diamonds exhibit all the brilliance and fire of a natural diamond because they truly are diamonds!
Lab-grown diamonds are created in controlled environments using advanced technology, being more eco-friendly than mining for natural-grown diamonds.

Commonly Asked Questions
We get a lot of questions about lab grown diamonds. Here are answers to the most commonly asked questions:
Yes! Lab-grown gemstones are chemically identical to naturally occurring diamonds. They are graded the same way that natural diamonds are graded, using the 4 C’s (color, cut, clarity, and carat). Gemological labs with high-powered equipment and specially trained gemologists can tell you if you have a created diamond or a naturally occurring one, but to the naked eye and even under standard microscopes, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference.
There are two main processes for producing diamonds in a lab. Both are quite technical procedures that require a few weeks to produce results. High Pressure, High Temperature (HPHT) mimics the way diamonds are formed naturally in the earth but speeds up the process exponentially. Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) creates these precious diamonds by using a chemical reaction to break carbon molecules apart and reform them into diamonds.
