Lab created diamonds vs mined diamonds
Contrary to popular belief, lab grown diamonds, which are often referred to as man-made or lab created, are in fact “real” diamonds – they have the same chemical and physical properties as their natural counterparts, the only difference is the way they are made. ,Man-made diamonds have been created in a laboratory- a setting that has been engineered to perfectly emulate the natural process of a diamond’s growth Natural diamonds can take up to 3 billion years to grow, whereas manufactured diamonds provide the option for beautiful lab created diamond to be produced through a much faster process.
Why choose lab created diamond jewellery?
Lab diamond jewellery is increasingly popular among proposers and ring buyers, offering both exceptional quality and impressive sparkle. So, what are the benefits of choosing a lab diamond?
- Responsible choice - When choosing between lab grown and naturally occurring diamonds, the decision often boils down to ethics. Lab grown diamonds are far more ethically responsible as there is no mining required.
- Value - cost is a factor for most when choosing between natural and lab created diamonds – man made jewellery tends to cost around 30% less than natural diamonds of the same quality and size.
- Brilliance and beauty - as these lab diamonds are man-made, with the same optical and chemical properties as natural diamonds, they offer the same brilliance and sparkle as earth mined diamonds.

Lab grown diamonds are 100% real diamonds. Man-made diamonds bear no difference to a natural diamond – chemically, physically or visually.
When shopping for an engagement ring, you'll need to consider the style of the ring, the shape of the diamond, the metal of the band and the budget you have in mind. When choosing the diamond itself, you should consider the 4 C's of Diamond Quality. All of our diamond rings are independently certified, so you'll have all the information you need about the size and condition of your diamond.
How are lab diamonds created?
Lab diamonds are created in high-temperature chambers with high pressure, which reproduce the conditions in the Earth’s crust. The result of this reaction comes in the form of carbon atoms arranging in the structure of a diamond crystal – which offers the same brilliance and beauty as naturally mined diamonds.
What else are lab grown diamonds known as?
Lab grown diamonds are also known as man-made diamonds, lab created diamonds, synthetic diamonds or artificially created diamonds.
