The Advantages of Lab Grown Diamonds For Engagement Rings
Lab-grown diamonds, also known as synthetic or cultured diamonds, are becoming increasingly popular for engagement and wedding rings.
These diamonds are created in a lab environment using advanced technology simulating the same process as the formation of naturally formed earth-grown diamonds, simply above the ground.
Once finished the growing process, the diamonds are cut and polished and are individually unique similar to natural earth-grown diamonds.
Even the most specialised jewellers cannot tell the difference between a natural earth-grown diamond and a lab-grown diamond without specialist equipment.
Lab-grown diamonds are considered and acknowledged as diamonds across the world as they have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as natural earth-grown diamonds.
Lab-grown diamonds have many advantages over their naturally occurring counterparts, making them an attractive choice for engagement rings. In this blog, we will discuss some of the advantages of choosing a lab-grown diamond for your engagement ring.
One of the primary advantages of lab-grown diamonds is their cost-effectiveness. Lab-grown diamonds can cost up to 30% less than earth-grown diamonds of the same quality and size. This is because the process of creating lab-grown diamonds is less expensive than mining and processing earth-grown diamonds. Just because the price is less than earth-grown diamonds, does not make them cheap, earth-grown diamonds simply go through a long supply chain that increases their price. This means that you can get a larger, more brilliant diamond with better colour, cut, clarity and carat for your engagement ring without breaking the bank.
Another major advantage of lab-grown diamonds is their ethical origin. Lab-grown diamonds are created in a controlled environment, meaning they are free from any ethical concerns that may be associated with earth-grown diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds have a clear and traceable origin with a unique identifier that can be traced back to its original source. This can ensure that your diamond has not been associated with any negative situations or production lines. You can wear your MJS lab-grown diamond engagement ring with the confidence that it was ethically sourced and is part of a responsible and sustainable diamond industry.
- High quality:
Lab-grown diamonds are created using advanced technology that replicates the natural diamond formation process, simply above the ground. This means that they have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as earth-grown diamonds. In fact, lab-grown diamonds can be of even higher quality than earth-grown diamonds because they are created under controlled conditions, which eliminates many imperfections that may be present in earth-grown diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds are typically available from colours K-D to ensure they continue to sparkle.
Lab-grown diamonds offer a wider range of options for engagement rings. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colours, including pink, blue, and black. This allows you to choose a diamond that suits your own style and preference to truly make the ring your own. You can also find lab-grown diamonds with unique cuts, such as heart-shaped, pear-shaped, or cushion-cut, which may be harder to find in earth-grown diamonds. MJS can find a diamond to suit your preference and budget to create your own dream engagement ring to showcase your love.
Lab-grown diamonds are a more sustainable choice, using less water and energy than their earth-grown alternatives. Mining earth-grown diamonds is a resource-intensive process that can cause soil erosion, water pollution and deforestation alongside increased pollution from the machinery used throughout the process. It is in the interest of l diamond growers to be more conscious about their carbon footprint to internally decrease their production costs. According to the Diamond Foundry, the carbon footprint of l diamonds is up to 8 times lower than earth-grown diamonds as the process emits significantly less carbon dioxide.
Lab-grown diamonds offer numerous advantages for engagement rings. They are cost-effective, ethical, and high-quality, and offer a wide range of options.
