1. As equally beautiful, more affordable – It’s true! Lab grown diamonds allow you to get up to 30% more diamond for your money. How? Well, unlike mined diamonds, the supply chain process for lab grown doesn’t include the substantial costs associated with mining. Put simply, a lab grown diamond touches fewer hands, making it ultimately less expensive.
2. Same process, different origins - The only thing that makes a lab grown diamond different from a mined diamond is its origin. A lab grown diamond is “grown” inside a lab using cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process. The result is diamonds chemically, physically, and optically the same as those grown beneath Earth’s surface.
3. Responsibly sourced – Lab grown diamonds are inherently less detrimental to the environment as it takes considerably less energy to grow a diamond in a lab than it does to mine it from the ground. To be fair, in the last decade, mining companies have taken steps to try to minimize the effect they have on the ecosystems around them.
For over 10 years, Rogers & Hollands + Ashcroft & Oak have been a leading voice and provider of lab grown diamond rings & jewelry for our guests. Because what has always mattered to us, is giving you a choice!
Both naturally-mined diamonds and lab-crafted diamonds (also known as lab grown diamonds) have identical chemical, physical and optical properties. Both go through the exact same post-formation process – cut, polish, and grading.
By imitating the process that happens deep within Earth’s surface, they are formed from a seed diamond— a minuscule slice of diamond— in a matter of months under specific pressure, temperature, and chemical conditions in certified lab environments. Blossoming into a large, rough diamond as carbon atoms grow around it. Learn more about lab grown diamonds vs. naturally mined diamonds here!
Lab grown diamonds versus mined diamonds? Some may want to dispute which type of diamond is “better,” in reality, mined diamonds and lab grown diamonds aren’t rivals. They both bring to life beautiful, high-quality stones, each with an intriguing history while representing love around the world.
