WHAT ARE LAB GROWN DIAMONDS ?
Let us start by saying that we are extremely pleased that we are a piece of another development in jewelry industry that conveys unimaginable looking gems while being environmentally-friendly to our planet!
Numerous individuals would ask a similar question when they are shown lab created diamonds: "Are these stones genuine?" and our appropriate response is: YES! Lab-created stones are actually REAL! They are similarly as excellent, gleaming and sparkly as the Earth-mined diamonds. You don’t have to simply believe us: in 2018 the Federal Trade Commission in the U.S. expressed that diamond is a mineral comprising basically of unadulterated carbon solidified in the isometric framework by expelling the word NATURAL from its definition.
Here is a brief examination of a few stones that people wrongly associate with man-made diamonds:
|Chemical Composition||Refractive Index||Dispersion||Hardness||Density||Crystalline Structure|
|Lab Grown Diamonds||C||2.42||0.044||10||3.52||CUBIC|
|Cubic zirconia (CZ)||ZrO2||2.20||0.066||8.25||5.70||CUBIC|
Lab created and regular diamonds convey precisely the same trademark and properties except for their starting point, which gives lab created stones an enormous favorable position – it is safe for nature. Here is a brisk examination of a few diamonds that individuals regularly partner with:
Individuals have endeavored to create stones for a considerable length of time. Nevertheless, just as of late we could consummate the advances and succeed. We should investigate the two noteworthy techniques - High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) these strategies remain the most creative and solid in valuable stone generation around the world.
Regular diamond formation happens as deep as 100 miles under the Earth's outer layer. HPHT innovation utilizes huge water powered presses gauging a few tons which can deliver pressure close to 5Gpa at a temperature of 1500°C to recreate the normally happening procedure in precious stone creation yet with colossal speed. This procedure begins with little diamond seed that is set into a cubic cell with graphite. Under the high pressure and temperature metal deliquesce the high purity carbon, which transports into little diamond seeds and structure a large grown single-crystal. By utilizing HPHT we can create wonderful white stones as well as staggering extravagant hues too.
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) strategy is an all the more as of late created method. CVD utilizes low pressure and a blend of gases that are separated into synthetically dynamic radicals by utilizing microwave control which enables us to remove unadulterated carbon. Then the carbon mixes on a dainty cut of a diamond plate to deliver a diamond, this procedure could be contrasted and snow heaping up and afterward packed to make a solid bond.
This is how our polished diamonds look like:
The biggest Fancy Intense Yellow and Fancy Deep Blue HPHT lab grown diamonds in the world
Emerald 10.07 Ct Fancy Deep Blue SI1
Octogonal Step Cut 10.06 Ct Fancy Intense Yellow SI1
Round 5.01 Ct D VVS1
Emerald 10.07 Ct Fancy Deep Blue SI1Emerald 10.07 Ct FDB SI1 A new world record was unveiled in 2016. The mined blue diamonds of that size or even smaller, anything over two carats really, goes from auctions for millions of dollars. This one is intense, pure, even color and of a big size and sells at a very attractive price.
Octogonal Step Cut 10.06 Ct Fancy Intense Yellow SI1Octogonal Step Cut 10.06 Ct FIY SI1 This is the only one officially known Fancy Intense Yellow of 10 carat lab-grown diamond. The stone’s intense yellow color and breathtaking brilliance captured everyone’s attention in 2018.
Round 5.01 Ct D VVS1Round 5.01 Ct D VVS1 Type IIa diamonds are the most valued and the purest type of diamonds. They contain either very little or no nitrogen atoms in the crystal structure. White stones are exceptionally colorless. They represent only 1% - 2% of all mined diamonds in the world. We are happy to offer you this premium quality that is always available at our store!
No gemologist, gem trader or diamond dealers will almost certainly differentiate among regular and lab created stones by utilizing the loupe, the stones would appear to be indistinguishable. The most solid strategy to distinguish a lab-grown stone is to utilize exceptionally inventive and innovative gear. These refined machines can identify extremely irrelevant contrast in gem development between two kinds of stones.
These days, there are many lab-created colorless stones. You can spare as much as half on the off chance that you purchase lab-grown stones from Labrilliante. We will happily enable you to pick the right piece for you and will reply to any question you may have.
Presently we have the most intriguing part: reviewing and examination. To acquire a certificate on a diamond, the stone should be sent to a gemological lab. Laboratory created diamonds experience the same reviewing stages for confirmation as the regular ones. Most of the laboratories grade stones as indicated by its 4 Cs: Carat, Cut, Clarity and Color. By and large, they evaluate the precious stone on how impeccably it was cut from its harsh crude state into a gem, its flawlessness, clearness and its size.
In general, the course of stone evaluation is similar in many labs. Diamond is examined and apprized by many gemologists before obtaining its eventual grading and certification.
Labs make sure that stones are created without unfavorably harming the environment and the overall population on the earth.

How about we look at the facts:
At the point when regular diamonds are mined, it frequently prompts the devastation of thousands of hectares of land. (About 0.00091 hectares per carat), overabundance outflow of carbons and ozone depleting substance that harmed the nature of air and contaminating the earth. Moreover, around 126 gallons of water are utilized to mine simply 1.0 carat of regular diamond.
The amount of land influenced really taking shape of a lab created diamond is about 0.00000071 hectares per carat. The use of water is similarly little with 18.5 liters used in creating a 1.0 carat of lab created stone. Read more about Key difference between lab grown diamonds and mined diamonds.
Where to buy lab created diamonds
Presently you realize that lab created, synthetic, HPHT grown, CVD grown stones in actuality are REAL! They look, sparkle and glimmer in the equivalent way. Individuals appreciate them a similar way and no one, not by any means would almost certainly observe the distinction.
You can locate your most loved laboratory created diamonds on our web site.
We recommend that you are cautious when you see lab-created stones sold for $100 dollars per carat – these stones can't be veritable! Just gems, for example, moissanites and CZ have a place in this esteem arrangement.
