A diamond is forever. Whether it is lab grown, lab created or mined, a diamond will retain its allure, look, physical, optical or chemical characteristics. Diamonds have a wide market now, and the demand for jewellery diamonds is increasing, with rising incomes and more disposable incomes. We need to thank the DeBeers Group, who ran an extremely successful marketing campaign to make diamonds the sole choice for engagement rings and other diamond jewellery.
Lab grown diamonds At first thought the phrase 'lab grown diamonds' has a negative meaning- most of us may relate to it as artificial or of inferior quality. This is anything but the truth. Lab grown diamonds mimic the chemical and physical reactions that mined diamonds are subject to for millennia. These diamonds are created of better quality and near-identical chemical and physical composition. In fact, no one can differentiate between mined and Lab grown diamonds unless you examine it using special instruments.
Lab created diamonds-We now know it is possible to grow real diamonds in a controlled lab environment. However, these best lab created diamonds also need to have many processes done on it- from cutting to polishing it. Thus we can create a truly beautiful lab created diamond. Many of these diamonds are also available in colours which are rare to be found in natural mined diamonds.
Man made diamonds- The diamonds which are grown in a controlled environment are also known as man made diamonds. They are grown using the latest technology and are engineered to perfection. However these manmade diamonds come in various different qualities- some are made in highly specialized manufacturing technologies like High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) while others are made using cheap plastic like substances. These are found in many imitation jewellery pieces that are available in the market.
Pure Carbon Diamond- A diamond can be defined as original when it is made of pure carbon- whether it is man-made or mined doesn't matter. Pure carbon diamonds are hard, crystalline and are good conductors of heat. Carbon diamonds also have luster and are transparent. Many mined diamonds have various imperfections in it- in the form of atoms of other elements. Lab grown diamonds are Pure carbon diamonds, they do not have any imperfections in them. We have white and blue color pure carbon lab grown diamond at the best affordable prices.
Even though lab-grown diamonds have so many advantages in its use, the popularity of mined diamonds has not waned. Slowly but surely we will see a day when most jewellery used will contain man made diamonds.
