Lab Grown Diamonds You Can Trust in the Farmington, MO Area
What Are Lab Grown Diamonds?
Is a diamond produced in a lab still really a diamond? The answer to that question, luckily, is very straightforward: yes. Diamonds are essentially just the proper combination of carbon, heat, and pressure. Regardless of whether they were formed underground over a billion years ago or created less than a week ago, lab grown diamonds are identical to their naturally occurring counterparts. If you look under a microscope at a diamond, you’ll be unable to distinguish whether or not it originated in a lab. And because the process is highly regulated in a lab setting, lab diamonds contain fewer flaws overall.
What's in a Name?
Regardless of whether you use the term lab-grown diamond, engineered diamond, cultured diamond, man-made diamond, or lab-created diamond, these created diamonds are still optically and chemically identical to natural diamonds. The terms synthetic and artificial are misnomers, because lab diamonds are not fake in terms of structure or composition. Man-made stones are just as durable as natural ones and contain the same elements. Created diamonds are equal if not superior to natural stones; growing in a lab gives scientists and gemologists time to perfect their process to exclude flaws and increase clarity. The next time someone says “artificial diamond” you can be confident in knowing there is no such thing.
Have Yourself a Sparkly Day
Glittering, sparkling diamond earrings and elegant pendants made with created diamonds are a stunning addition to any jewelry collection. Lab grown diamonds can take any form, shape, or size (the largest on record is currently 155 carats!), and can be honed and polished into everything from a marquise to a teardrop. Available in a rainbow of colors, your created diamond jewelry will practically beg to be worn. Whether it's diamond stud earrings to lunch with a friend or a sweet little pendant to your routine appointments, make wearing your fine jewelry an everyday occurrence, and every day will become a special, sparkly occasion.
A Rainbow of Colors
Not only are created diamonds available in brilliant crystal clear, they're also much easier to find in a variety of colors, ranging from a soft powder blue to a millennial pink and even shades of bright yellow. Colored diamonds are much rarer in nature, making them difficult to come by and therefore far more expensive. In the past, sapphires frequently substituted for the elusive and pricey pink and yellow diamonds, but now there's no need to choose between the color you desire and the durability of your jewelry. Lab grown diamonds in yellows, pinks, blues, and even occasionally oranges can light up your jewelry collection like never before.
