5 things you need to know about lab-grown diamonds

on April 21, 2021
Lab-grown diamonds have sparked considerable interest among buyers worldwide. Many people are puzzled to discover that in addition to being mined, diamonds can also be grown in a laboratory.

In particular, laboratory diamonds have similar physical and optical properties to naturally mined diamonds. In fact, lab-grown diamonds are not only identical to natural diamonds in terms of properties, but also in terms of quality.

Laboratory Diamonds Grading
Laboratory diamonds, like natural diamonds, are classified according to the 4Cs. When you buy a lab diamond ring or bracelet, customers should also ask the seller for a diamond grading certificate. Both IGI and GIA, the world's leading diamond grading institution, grant licenses for laboratory diamonds and will mark the diamond as such. Since our diamonds are produced in quality laboratories, SHAN provides a certificate to each customer.

Short manufacturing period
Unlike natural diamonds, which take millions of years to grow in the field, lab-grown diamonds are created in a matter of weeks. As a result, consumers will always choose the size, colour, clarity and other characteristics of their desired diamond, then wait a few weeks to acquire a flawless diamond that meets their expectations.

Price
Natural diamonds are pricey due to diamond retailers' advertising and taxation, but the world has enough diamonds for all of us. Lab diamond prices are mainly determined by diamond size, colour, cutting and purity.

Eco-Friendly Laboratory Diamonds
In order to extract natural diamonds, extensive excavations are required below the earth's surface, the natural balance of nature is definitely disturbed and the mining process is a huge exploitation of labor, sacrificing them to money. In contrast, lab-grown diamonds are expertly cultivated and are more environmentally friendly than natural diamonds.

A Wonderful Science
Although industrial diamonds have been usable for decades, replacing jewel diamonds has never been considered an option. Laboratory diamonds are far more exquisite and dazzling than natural diamonds.

Last but not least, it's worth noting that - there are other colors other besides pure colours, including pink, green and blue, to pick from. Visit SHAN's online store right now!
