What is a laboratory-grown diamond?

Laboratory-grown diamonds (commonly referred to as lab grown diamonds) are diamonds produced in a controlled environment using technology that replicates the natural diamond process. These are also sometimes referred to as man-made or created diamonds.

How are laboratory-grown diamonds made?

Laboratory-grown diamonds are created within a laboratory setting that mimics the natural process and develops diamonds in a matter of weeks as opposed to over many years. There are two methods used to create laboratory-grown diamonds: CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) and HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature).

Laboratory-grown diamonds open up the possibilities when it comes to finding your perfect diamond.

Are laboratory-grown diamonds certified?

All Laings laboratory-grown diamonds are certified, with the certificate clearly stating that they are laboratory grown and not a natural product. The corresponding stone will be laser inscribed with the word “LAB” alongside the certification number in a size invisible to the naked eye.

Can you tell the difference between a laboratory-grown and a natural diamond?

The naked eye is unable to identify  the difference between a laboratory-grown and a natural diamond. A trained gemologist or gemologist laboratory, however, would be able to identify the origin of the diamond. Specialist equipment is now widely used across the industry to ensure the origin of diamonds within jewellery products can be determined.
