Lab Grown Diamonds - F.A.Q.
What are lab grown diamonds?
Lab grown diamonds are optically and chemically identical to real diamonds. Natural diamonds form within the Earth’s mantle, while lab grown diamonds are made in a lab using cutting-edge equipment that mimics the conditions in which natural diamonds form.

How long is the process to grow a lab diamond?
Are lab grown diamonds real diamonds?
Can a jeweler tell the difference between a natural and a LG diamond?
Is a lab diamond the same as a simulated diamond?
What is the difference between the 2 types of lab diamond, HPHT and CVD?
HPHT, or high pressure high temperature, tend to be of higher quality than CVD lab diamonds. CVD stands for chemical vapor deposition.
The HPHT method is the original method of creating lab-grown diamonds. Gem quality HPHT diamonds were introduced in the 1950s. Outside of growing diamonds, the HPHT process can also be used to enhance the color of diamonds to make them colorless, pink, green, blue, or yellow.
The CVD method was created in the 1980s. The CVD method imitates how diamonds form in interstellar gas clouds. The CVD method uses less pressure than the HPHT method as well as smaller machines.
