Lab Grown Diamonds FAQs
Lab-grown diamonds are not imitations or simulants. They are real diamonds, and they have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds - the only difference being their origin.
Natural diamonds are grown in the earth for several millions or even billions of years, whereas lab created diamonds are grown in a machine for a few weeks to months depending on the size.
Because it’s the same material, it’s typically hard even for a trained gemologist or jeweler to tell the difference between a lab grown diamond and a natural one.
