Are lab-grown diamonds really diamonds?

Yes, lab-grown diamonds are indeed real diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds have the same chemical composition, crystal structure, and physical properties as naturally occurring diamonds. They are created in a lab setting through a process called chemical vapor deposition or high-pressure, high-temperature methods, which copy the conditions under which natural diamonds are formed in the Earth.

The main difference between lab-grown diamonds and natural diamonds is where they come from. Natural diamonds are formed deep within the Earth over billions of years, while lab-grown diamonds are created in a matter of weeks or months in a controlled laboratory environment, which is pretty amazing if you think about it.

From a chemical and physical standpoint, lab-grown diamonds are virtually indistinguishable from natural diamonds. However, gemological laboratories can identify whether a diamond is natural or lab-grown through advanced testing. Lab-grown diamonds often have unique growth patterns or features that can help distinguish them from natural diamonds.

It's important to know that lab-grown diamonds are different from diamond simulants or imitations like cubic zirconia or moissanite, which have different chemical compositions and properties. Lab-grown diamonds are a real alternative to natural diamonds and are becoming more popular due to their ethical and sustainable production methods. They also have a more wallet friendly price tag making them the perfect option for modern day jewellery.
