Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab Grown Diamonds, also known as CVD Diamonds, Synthetic Diamonds or Cultured Diamonds are real diamonds that have been man made. While natural diamonds take centuries to develop under the earth’s surface before they are mined from the earth, lab grown diamonds can be produced in a quality-controlled laboratory within a few weeks.

Chemically, physically, and optically identical to natural diamonds, it can be extremely difficult to tell the difference between the two without using specialised testing equipment. Lab Grown Diamonds are generally cheaper and can be a good alternative to natural diamonds. You can get a bigger or higher quality diamond with the same budget.

There are two methods used to grow Lab Diamonds:

CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) – Lab Grown diamond seeds are loaded into a CVD reactor. Then, a mix of gasses containing carbon is added at a very low pressure. Microwaves are added to heat the gases and generate a plasma. When the temperatures climb over several thousand degrees, the gas molecules break apart and carbon atoms bond to the seeds, growing them one layer at a time.

HPHT (High Temperature High Pressure) – This method mimics the conditions under which diamonds naturally form. Large mechanical presses are used to apply extreme pressure and high temperature to carbon in the presence of a diamond seed. The seeds act as a template for a lattice of carbon to grow layer by layer over the course of a few days. While this method can be used to make lab made diamonds, it is not the preferred method as CVD is a more efficient production technology.

We can source Lab Grown CVD Diamonds from several reputable diamond labs and all diamonds come with a certificate of authenticity and guarantee. Talk with us today.
