Nothing says “I love you” like a beautiful diamond ring. Whether you’re looking for an engagement ring, gearing up for a wedding, or searching for the perfect anniversary gift, diamonds have always been a popular choice.
Diamond rings are classic, meaningful, and will last for lifetimes. And now, you have options: lab-grown diamonds (also known as lab created or lab diamonds) make it possible for you to have the ring of your dreams, often for less than one featuring a traditional natural diamond. Let’s learn more about lab created diamonds and showcase all the beautiful lab-grown diamond bridal rings we have available.
What Are Lab-Created Diamonds
Lab-created diamonds are diamonds that are made in a controlled lab environment. Chemists use one of two methods to create the diamonds. The High Pressure/High Temperature (HP/HT) process involves extremely high temperatures and pressure, which mimic the intense pressure and heat that are needed to form diamonds in the Earth’s mantle. Another method is through Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), which involves putting a diamond “seed” in a sealed chamber and exposing it to carbon-rich gas. This carbon gas adheres to the stone, eventually growing into a bigger diamond.
Lab created diamonds are evaluated using the same criteria as natural diamonds and can be used in beautiful necklaces, rings, or earrings. This is because these diamonds are real diamonds. Unlike diamond simulants like cubic zirconia, lab created diamonds are exactly the same as natural diamonds, they simply have a different point of origin. But because they can be made in a lab and don’t require the extensive mining process, they are often more affordable.
Why Buy a Lab Created Diamond Engagement or Wedding Ring?
There are many reasons why more people are turning to lab-grown diamond jewelry. Of course, you want to make sure you find the perfect diamond for one of the most important moments in your life, and lab created diamonds offer beautiful, affordable options. Here are some of the main reasons why lab created diamond rings are becoming so popular:
- They are often a better value than natural diamonds, typically priced lower than their natural diamond equivalents.
- It’s virtually impossible to tell a lab-grown diamond from a natural diamond. In fact, even some jewelers can’t tell the difference without advanced testing!
- They hold their value in the same way as natural diamonds.
- Lab created diamonds can be just as unique as natural diamonds. Not all diamonds from a lab make the cut, so to even get a lab-grown diamond into a store is a great feat.
