FAQ

Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds?
Yes! They have the exact same chemical, optical and physical properties. The only difference lies in their origin.
How are lab grown diamonds different from moissanite or simulated diamonds?
Moissanite and cubic zirconia do not feature a diamond's chemical components, and instead are made of different materials. Lab grown diamonds are not imitations. They are genuine diamonds.
How is a lab grown diamond made?
Diamonds form when their carbon atoms crystallize into cubic structures with tetrahedral bonds. Lab grown diamonds are formed from a 'diamond seed,' which is a very thinly sliced diamond. They're grown using High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), which results in carbon atoms depositing onto the diamond seed to grow into a larger rough diamond.
Are lab grown diamonds graded the same?
Absolutely. You may determine the value of lab grown diamonds using the 4C's (cut, color, clarity and carat).
Are all lab grown diamonds identical?
Every diamond crystallizes in its own way, with its own inclusions and unique patterns. No two lab-grown diamonds are alike!
