How to Pair a Unique Estate Ring with a Wedding Band

3 Reasons to Choose a Lab Diamond

 

Lab diamonds are becoming increasingly popular for their eco-friendly characteristics and stunning sparkle.

Lab diamonds are man-made diamonds that consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Lab created diamonds are made using advanced technological processes that replicate the conditions in which diamonds develop in nature, and exhibit the same optical and chemical properties as natural diamonds. Since they are made of the same material as natural diamonds, they exhibit the same brilliance and sparkle.

Below are our top reasons to select a lab created diamond:

1. Ethical Sourcing

Lab created diamonds are a sustainable and eco-friendly choice. They are ethically grown with minimal environmental impact and require no mining. Although Brilliant Earth’s natural diamonds are mined according to our Beyond Conflict Free Diamond™ standard, lab diamonds are an especially eco-friendly choice!

2. Value

Lab diamonds usually cost about 30% less than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality. In addition to lab diamond engagement rings, jewelry set with lab created diamonds offers great value and makes for an excellent gift!

3. Beauty

Since lab diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds, they offer the same brilliance and beauty as mined diamonds. Lab diamonds are created in high-temperature, high-pressure chambers that reproduce the conditions in the earth’s crust. The result is carbon atoms arranged in the structure of a diamond crystal and diamonds that are every bit as magical as the ones created naturally millions of years ago and mined today. In addition to sparkling white diamonds, you’ll find lab created diamonds in fancy colors that are very rare in nature.

Lab created diamonds are not only sought after for engagement rings, but they are also beautiful when used in fine jewelry!

Here are some of our favorite classic lab diamond jewelry styles:

Thank you for creating the “anti blood diamond.” Question: What about the gold links? Are they mined or created in a lab as well?
