Lab Grown Diamonds You Can Trust in the Fredericktown, MO Area
Sourcing Lab Grown Diamonds
There's a reason engineered diamonds are called "lab grown," and it's only partly due to marketing. Lab diamonds are started from tiny diamond seeds - actual slivers of diamond that contain the chemical structure laboratories are trying to replicate. The same way that cultured pearls are formed in a controlled environment and made by inoculating mollusks with tissue grafts, diamonds are inoculated inside a highly pressurized and heated chamber. Unlike pearls, which come from and are formed by living organisms, diamonds are not subject to the same genetic variation. Although lab diamonds are not without flaws, the result of years of scientific research is a quality product with replicable results.
Know Your Market
There are several reasons lab grown diamonds appeal to Millennials and Gen Z, making these two generations the most likely to purchase lab diamonds. For one, they're up to one-third less expensive than natural diamonds — and sometimes even less — making lab diamonds much more affordable. With the recent trend towards large diamonds, buyers don't have to compromise on quality for size and vice versa. Younger buyers are also more likely to be concerned with the environment and favor sustainably sourced diamonds. Created diamonds aren't the only sustainable option, but it is much easier to guarantee their low environmental impact and find them in a variety of styles.
Will Anyone Notice the Difference?
One of the biggest worries for those new to the idea of man-made diamonds is whether or not they'll look real. In reality, it's impossible to tell with the naked eye whether or not a diamond is created or naturally formed. Created diamonds and natural diamonds are optically and chemically indistinguishable, but with years of work, scientists have been able to make lab diamonds consistently higher quality in both color and clarity. Unless you tell all your friends, no one will be able to tell whether your partner spent ten thousand dollars on your jewelry or half that much!
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.
