Lab Grown Diamonds Lab grown diamonds are becoming a hot topic in the jewellery world. They sparkle like natural diamonds, as pure as the real thing and an ethical choice. These diamonds are also cheaper at around 30% lower in price. How to laboratory’s create diamonds? Lab grown diamonds go through exactly the same process as a natural diamond undergoes underground through nature, it is just reproduced in a laboratory. 1.) A diamond seed is placed in an environment containing carbon, the molecular component of diamonds. 2.) A huge amount of pressure is applied at a very high temperature Under this controlled environment, the diamond begins to grow, molecule by molecule, layer by layer, just as it would at a slower pace in mature. Lab grown diamonds can be cut and shaped just like natural diamonds. These diamonds cut out the mining process and the pressure on the environment, as well as answering the demand for diamonds.
