Uncovering 5 Myths About Lab Grown Diamonds and Their Place in Fine Jewelry
Lab grown diamonds have become increasingly popular in the world of fine jewelry, but there are still many myths and misconceptions about them. In this blog post, we will explore five common myths about lab grown diamonds and explain why they don’t hold much weight.
The first myth is that lab grown diamonds are not real. This simply isn’t true - lab grown diamonds are made of the same material as mined diamonds, and they possess the exact same chemical and physical properties such as hardness, sparkle, and brilliance. Therefore, they are considered just as real and forever as mined diamonds!
The second myth is that lab grown diamonds are of lower quality than mined ones. This is completely false - modern technology has allowed us to create lab grown diamonds with exceptional clarity and color grades that rival those of natural stones.
Thirdly, many people falsely assume that only certain types of jewelers carry lab grown diamonds or only offer lower quality products when it comes to these stones. The truth is that most major jewelry retailers now stock a wide array of premium lab-created diamonds.
Another common misconception is that prices for lab grown diamond jewelry tend to be high. This simply isn't true - because factories producing lab grown diamonds don’t need to go through mining processes like traditional diamond suppliers do, they're often able to offer more competitive prices for these pieces. It is important to note that larger carats will always require a bigger investment no matter which kind of diamond you opt for however you can enjoy impressive savings on larger lab grown diamonds compared to traditional mined alternatives.
Lastly, some people believe that buying a lab created diamond won't have the same emotional impact as purchasing a natural stone. But this simply isn't true – with the right guidance from an expert jeweler your choice between one diamond or another will be meaningful and personal.
