What are lab-grown diamonds?

Lab-grown diamonds, sometimes called synthetic or cultured diamonds, are man-made gems that closely mirror the characteristics of natural diamonds. They’re created by replicating the processes that occur in the Earth's crust over millions of years, where intense heat and pressure transform carbon atoms into dazzling gemstones.

Chemical and optical similarity

Lab-grown diamonds have the same chemical and optical characteristics as natural diamonds, making them virtually indistinguishable to the naked eye.

Lower prices

Synthetic diamonds typically come with a lower price tag than natural diamonds, with prices dropping by as much as 30% per year.


How are lab-grown diamonds made?

Creating lab-grown diamonds mimics the natural growth of diamonds in a controlled, man-made environment. This method can be broken down into three steps:

  1. Diamond seed - The process begins with a tiny piece of diamond, known as a diamond seed, sealed inside a special chamber designed to replicate conditions within the Earth's crust.
  2. Carbon coating - The diamond seed is coated in pure carbon, initiating the growth process.
  3. Synthetic diamond formation- Over several weeks, the coated seed transforms into a synthetic diamond, chemically identical to a natural one.
