Lab Grown Diamonds vs Natural Diamonds

Lab Grown Diamonds vs Natural Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds vs. natural diamonds. They both look fabulous and can last forever. What’s the difference between them? One is grown by scientists in a laboratory for 2-8 weeks, while the other was created 1.0 to 3.5 billion years ago in the earth’s crust by nature. Growth time is the major difference, and the maker – Man or Mother Nature.

Another main difference is the price. Lab-grown diamonds (LGDs) can cost 30%-50% less than their natural counterparts, giving your customers the ability to purchase jewelry with higher carat total weights at an accessible price point. The affordable luxury appeal of lab-grown diamonds crosses all generations from Gen Z to Baby Boomers.

Lab-grown diamonds are not simulants; they are diamonds that are optically, chemically, and physically similar to natural diamonds. Scientists create them in a lab by starting with diamond seeds (either natural or LGD) that are grown using either HPHT (High-Pressure High-Temperature) or CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition).
