What is a lab-grown diamond?
Although identical in appearance to natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds have very subtle differences that can only be detected by trained Gemmologists and special equipment. Lab-grown diamonds look and sparkle just like natural diamonds, and they’re available in all kinds of shapes, sizes, cuts and colours too. If you had a lab-grown diamond and natural diamond in front of you, it would be impossible for you to tell the difference!
Natural diamonds are created over billions of years due to intense heat and pressure within the Earth. In order to mine diamonds, an estimated 100,000 tons of rock must be mined and searched through in order to find a jewellery-worthy diamond.
