What are Lab Grown Diamonds?

This is the most asked question when it comes to the newly formed industry of lab made diamonds. What are they?

Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds, not substitutes or alternatives to mined diamonds. It is a common misconception that they are cubic zirconia or Moissanite. They are real diamonds, with the same chemical, physical, and optical properties of mined diamonds. These new age, environmentally conscious stones are created using the latest cutting-edge research and technology providing us with a new way to form a diamond. ​

Lab diamonds can only be distinguished from natural diamonds using specialized equipment that can detect the minor differences in trace elements and crystal growth.
