Understanding Lab Grown DiamondsUpdated 2 months ago

The Jewelry Spot - USA Boston, MA

Lab-grown diamonds are cultivated in controlled laboratory settings, mirroring the natural diamond-growing process. They are primarily produced through two methods: Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT).

CVD involves placing a diamond seed in a chamber and exposing it to a carbon-rich gas mixture at moderate temperatures, yielding high-quality diamonds with relatively low energy consumption.

HPHT replicates natural diamond formation by subjecting a diamond seed to high pressure and high temperature alongside a carbon source. While HPHT is commonly used for industrial purposes, it can also yield gem-quality diamonds.

"A lab-grown diamond of identical carat weight and specifications could cost thousands of dollars less than its naturally occurring counterpart."

In addition to the environmental benefits associated with lab-grown diamonds, their price point starkly contrasts with that of natural diamonds.
