Lab grown diamonds (LGD), otherwise known as lab created, engineered or cultured diamonds, are grown in a laboratory setting using technology that mimics the conditions that create natural diamonds. LGDs are formed from the same material and exposed to similar conditions resulting in gemstones that are chemically identical to their natural counterparts.
ARE LAB GROWN DIAMONDS REAL DIAMONDS?
Lab grown diamonds are optically, chemically and physically similar to natural diamonds.
Here, our Diamond Specialists take you through an extensive guide to how lab grown diamonds are created, how they can differ from natural diamonds and discuss the intricacies of grading, certification, and the costs.
