Lab grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds.
Lab grown diamonds use the same 4C scale as natural diamonds to determine Color, Clarity, Cut & Carat weight.
By choosing a lab grown diamond, you can go larger in carat weight for the same price as a natural diamond.

Our lab grown diamonds are created from the tiny carbon seeds of pre-existing diamonds. Advanced technology - either extreme pressure and heat or a special deposition process known as CVD - mimics the method of natural diamond formation. Some man made diamonds created through deposition may also undergo pressure and heat treatment after they are grown. Man made fancy colored diamonds are formed when small amounts of specific trace elements are present during the growth phase of the created diamond, just like nature. In both white and fancy colored man made diamonds, the exact composition of trace elements may differ from their natural diamond counterparts. A Man made diamond can only be distinguished from natural diamonds using specialized equipment that can detect the minor differences in trace elements and crystal growth.
To enhance our mining free offerings, we offer many of our engagement ring settings with lab grown diamond accents when set with a lab grown center diamond. For most styles, we match the type of accent diamonds with the type of selected center diamond. If you select a lab grown center diamond, then the accent diamonds on your setting may also be lab grown, as indicated in the product details.

It is important to note the major distinction between lab grown diamonds and diamond simulants. Diamond simulants, such as cubic zirconia and moissanite, look simuliar to diamonds but are not true carbon crystals. Simulants do not have the same chemical and physical properties of natural diamonds and therefore sell at much lower prices than lab created diamonds. Simulants can be distingished from natural or lab created diamonds using only the naked eye.
Natural and lab created diamonds have thermal conductivity properties that differentiate them from cubic zirconia with a handheld diamond tester. Some lab created diamonds, along with some natural colored diamonds, may be mistakenly indentified as moissanites when using certain diamond testerss due to similarity in their electrical conductivity. However, gemologists can typically distinguish between diamond and moissanite due to their differing refractive properties, with moissanites being double refractive and diamonds being single refractive.
Our lab grown diamonds display the same physical, chemical and optical characteristics as natural diamonds, and exhibit the same fire, scintillation, and sparkle. Using a jewerly loupe, lab created diamonds are nearly impossible to differentiate from natural diamonds. Lab created diamonds may exhibit different trace elements than natural diamonds that do nto affect the appearance of the diamond. Lab created diamonds can be distinguished from natural diamonds only with tests using specialized equipment. Lab created diamonds available for purchase should always come with a gem certification indentifying them as laboratory grown.

Diamonds have inclusions which are imperfections. Flaws in diamonds matter because they affect the value of the stone. In the diamond industry, we use a chart that tells us how flawless or included a diamond is. This is called clarity - the measure of being clear. The less flaws a diamond has, the more rare it is, therefore the more expensive it gets.
Each diamond graded by the Gemological Institute of America comes with a report and is available through the diamond broker, like Green Hills Diamond Brokers, or diamond seller. This report remains with the stone and often called GIA Certified Diamonds.
We all pretty much know diamonds sparkle and shine. The fire from the brilliance really catches the eye, but what if a diamond caught your attention in the dark? There’s a fascinating character in diamonds called fluorescence. It’s a blue glow that’s seen only under ultra-violet light. It’s actually a natural feature found in approximately 30 percent of diamonds that can potentially affect the cost of the stone depending on the level it fluoresces.
