For over 10 years, Rogers & Hollands and Ashcroft & Oak have been a leading voice in lab grown diamonds.
The grown diamond process duplicates what occurs naturally, in certifed labs, - making it impossible for the human eye to identify the difference of lab grown or earth mined. The process that happens deep within Earth’s surface is imitated in a lab using a High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) process. What starts out as a diamond seed— a minuscule slice of diamond— blossoms into a large, rough diamond as carbon atoms grow around it.
Laboratory grown diamonds, also known as man-made diamonds or created diamonds, have identical chemical, physical and optical properties to mined diamonds with the only difference being their origin.
They are certified & graded to the same standards as mined diamonds, but typically cost about 30% less than their mined counterparts.
