How are lab grown diamonds made?
During the winter of 1954, the General Electric Research Laboratory first made lab grown diamonds by mimicking the processes of nature. Later on, the now-known company Pure Grown Diamonds refined the process to create diamonds of greater quality by improving its color and clarity.
At the moment, there are two known methods in creating diamonds: high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT), and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). HPHT makes use of high pressures and high temperatures that recreate the conditions in the earth’s crust for diamonds to be made. CVD on the other hand brings the particles of elements that compose diamonds together.
To conclude, lab grown diamonds are created using processes found in nature to create stones of the same physical, chemical, and optical properties.
Are lab grown diamonds perfect?
Lab grown diamonds are made from the seed of an existing diamond, which will naturally have its own inclusions, color grade, blemishes, and more. This means that much like earth mined diamonds, lab grown ones will have their own unique cut, clarity, color, and carat size.
How are they assessed?
Like earth mined diamonds, they are verified by independent organizations like the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the International Gemological Institute (IGI). You may learn more about the assessment process here.
