Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab grown diamonds are synthetic diamond produced in an artificial process, as opposed to natural diamonds, which are created by geological process. Synthetic diamond is also widely known as HTHP (High Temperature High Pressure) diamond or CDV (Chemical Vapor Deposition) diamond after two common production methods.

CVD v. Diamond Simulants

Distinction of lab grown diamonds (CVD) with diamond simulants, such as Cubic Zirconia and Moissanite, they are not formed by carbon crystals. The simulants can easily identified by naked eyes. Natural diamond and lab grown diamond (CVD) have same thermal conductivity that differentiates them with simulants. On the other hand, the simulants do not the same chemical and physical properties as natural and CVD diamonds; therefor they sell at much lower in price.

Lab Grown Diamonds (CVD) v. Natural Diamonds

The lab grown diamonds have same chemical, physical and optical characteristics of the natural diamonds, and it displays the same fire and sparkling.

Lab grown diamonds, almost impossible, differentiate from natural diamonds by a jewelry loupe.   The lad diamond only can be distinguished by suing specializes equipment.

CVD diamonds are available for the consumer market should always come with a gem lab certificate to identify it’s a lab grown diamond.
