Lab Grown Diamonds
100% optically, chemically, and physically identical to mined Diamonds
Lab-grown Diamonds are not simulants. Scientists create them in a lab. They start with rough crystals, and use HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) or CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) — sometimes both methods. Lab-grown Diamonds can cost 30-50% less than mined Diamonds.
Lab-grown diamonds got their start in the ‘50s with General Electric — yes, the power company. Although General Electric (specifically, H. Tracy Hall, but that’s a story for another day) pioneered lab-grown diamonds, they grew these diamonds through just one process. Today, there are two - High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).
While it is nearly impossible to detect lab-grown diamonds by sight, the growing process leaves behind evidence of any diamond’s origin. Advanced screening and testing equipment is necessary here. (Just remember — no single device can do it all.)
