What are lab diamonds? How are lab diamonds created? Read and discover why Brilliant Earth is a go-to store for lab diamond jewelry!
Lab created diamonds or also known as man made diamonds are grown in special laboratory conditions using a modern technology and processes that are similar to the conditions under which natural diamonds are developed and formed beneath the Earth’s crust.
The lab created diamonds consist of carbon atoms which are arranged in the typical diamond crystal structure and since they are grown under the same conditions and in similar environments, these cultured diamonds have the same chemical and optical properties.
Brilliant Earth’s lab diamonds are grown from small carbon seeds of pre-existing natural diamonds and modern technology is used to simulate the natural method of diamond formation and growth. The fancy colored diamonds that are grown in a laboratory are created when small amounts of trace elements are included during the development phase of the diamond, just like in a natural environment.
The man-made or lab created diamonds can be distinguished from the natural ones by using a special equipment that can identify the tiniest differences in crystal growth and trace elements. They can also be identified and distinguished by natural diamonds with special tests.
