Are lab diamonds, real diamonds? YES! Are lab diamonds worth anything? YES!

There has been a lot of debate regarding what a lab grown (also known as lab-created) diamond is and if it’s a “real” diamond. 

Let’s dive into what sets these stones apart (or doesn’t) from naturally-mined diamonds. Of course, it’s a personal preference, but we don’t think lab grown diamonds are a fad, in fact, we think they’re here for the long haul. Here are some of the facts so you can decide what’s best for you!

A mined diamond is formed naturally deep beneath the Earth’s crust where temperatures and pressures are very high. These diamonds can only be mined when rare volcanoes erupt and bring them close to the surface.  

We imitate that same process in our lab using a Hig
