For Now & Forever
There is no wrong answer. The decision is entirely up to you depending on which type of diamond you prefer.
You should buy a lab grown diamond if:
You’re looking for a budget-friendly option (lab grown diamonds cost 30% less, on average than their mined counterparts)
Maybe you appreciate the latest advances in modern technology
You should buy a naturally-mined diamond if:
Having a mined diamond made naturally in the Earth is important to you
A mined diamond can also be a representation of nature’s miracle surrounded by mysterious origins
The bottom line: Overall, lab grown diamonds share the same physical and chemical properties as natural, mined diamonds. Lab grown are real diamonds that last forever but are an estimated 30% less expensive than mined diamonds. Overall, neither diamond is “better.” They are not in competition with one another. What matters is the significance you put on your diamond and what it means to you.
