4 Reasons To Choose a Lab Grown Diamond

Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds. Also known as lab created diamonds, lab diamonds are 100% carbon and are chemically and optically identical to diamonds mined from the earth. Lab diamonds are grown by recreating the conditions underneath the Earth that result in diamond growth: pressure, heat, & carbon. Today, there are two methods of growing diamond gemstones: High Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) & Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). Each process is best suited for certain sizes & colors of diamonds. Because lab grown diamonds are chemically identical to their mined counterparts, they exhibit all the same brilliance and sparkle, and are graded on the same 4 C’s as earth mined diamonds.

Curious why luxury consumers are embracing lab diamonds? Below are our top 4 reasons to choose a lab grown diamond.

 
 

Why Buy a Lab Diamond? Known Origin, Guaranteed Conflict-Free

For the conscious consumer, a diamond’s origin matters! Ada’s laboratory grown diamonds are guaranteed to be of known origin, sustainably grown in state-of-the-art facilities operated by well-compensated employees. Ada Diamonds knows exactly when, where, and how each of our diamonds were grown. By refusing to use mined diamonds in our jewelry, we can guarantee that all the diamonds we offer are conflict free and in no way connected to the dubious diamond trade that continues to flourish to this day. Learn why it matters where it comes from.

 
 

Why Buy a Lab Diamond? Environmentally Superior

The extraction of diamonds from the earth is fossil fuel intensive, environmentally damaging, and becoming less sustainable every year. Growing diamonds uses a fraction of that energy and does not contaminate fragile ecosystems in rivers and lakes. The growth of diamonds only requires two main ingredients: carbon & electricity. Today, the most efficient diamond producers require approximately 250kWh of electricity to grow a 1 carat diamond, which is the roughly the same amount of electricity the average US household consumes in a week. Furthermore, diamonds can be grown wherever renewable energy is available. Learn more about our commitment to sustainable diamonds.

 
 

Why Buy a Lab Diamond? Better Value

Much like mined diamonds, lab grown diamonds are priced based on their 4C’s characteristics. Lab grown diamonds typically retail for 30-40% less than mined diamonds of comparable size and quality, meaning you can get a bigger, better diamond for your budget.

Why Buy a Lab Diamond? Funding the Future

Lab grown diamonds brighten the future for humanity. The lab diamond market primarily exists to create high-tech uses for lab diamonds such as laser lenses, surgical knives, high pressure anvils, and water purification systems. Earth-extracted diamonds are not suitable for these applications; the only option is lab grown, which continue to have high research and development costs. When you purchase lab diamond jewelry, you are directly funding research & development of functional uses of diamond that improve humanity. Learn more about how lab grown diamonds brighten the future.
