How are lab-grown diamonds different from mined diamonds?
The only differences between lab-grown diamonds and mined diamonds are the way they’re made and that mined diamonds are rarer
Another big difference between them is how affordable lab-grown diamonds are compared to mined diamonds
Just like mined diamonds, lab-grown diamonds can be created white or in colours such as pink or blue. They’re also graded using the same ‘Four Cs’ quality scale as mined diamonds
What’s the difference between lab-grown diamonds and simulated diamonds?
Lab-grown diamonds are 100% real diamonds and boast identical properties to mined diamonds, including the very same scintillation and brilliance
Simulated diamonds are cubic zirconia, which are not diamonds and don’t have the same brilliance or scintillation
