Are lab created diamonds real diamonds?

Yes. Lab created diamonds are real diamonds, just like mined diamonds. They are created in a laboratory using state of the art technology.

Exactly the same as natural diamonds, lab created diamonds consist of carbon atoms in a lattice crystal structure.

Do lab created diamonds look the same as mined diamonds?

Yes. Lab created diamonds have the same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds so they look exactly the same.

They can only be told apart from their mined counterparts by using special laboratory equipment that can detect the very slight differences in crystal growth.

Carats and purity

Do lab created diamonds come in different qualities?

Yes. The same as natural diamonds, lab created diamond can have very slight colour differences, as well as tiny imperfections called “inclusions”. These affect the colour and clarity grades of lab created diamonds and, consequently, their price.

Just as with our natural diamonds, our gemmologist rigorously selects each of our lab created diamond by hand to ensure its high quality.

Do lab created diamonds come with a quality certificate?

Just like the natural diamonds we sell, our lab created diamond solitaire pendants, earrings and rings at 0.25 carats and above come with a diamond certificate.

By clicking the Product Specifications tab on our product pages you’ll easily see what type of documents and certificates are included with your diamond.

Are lab created diamonds more affordable?

Lab created diamonds are hi-tech luxury goods. A fusion of art and technology, the process is exacting and expensive.

However, compared to the rarity of natural diamonds and the cost of finding and extraction, lab created diamonds still offer a considerable saving.

Are lab created diamonds fake?

No. Lab created diamonds are real diamonds.

Fake diamond alternatives, like cubic zirconia or moissanite, are manufactured from completely different raw materials, not true carbon crystals.

For example, cubic zirconia is made from zirconium dioxide and you only need to look at it with a naked eye to easily distinguish it from natural or lab created diamonds.

Are lab created diamonds right for me?
