About Lab Grown Diamonds
What is a lab grown diamond? Whether you call them lab grown diamonds, lab created diamonds, synthetic diamonds or man made diamonds, they’re all one and the same. Lab grown diamonds are carbon diamonds that have been grown in a laboratory, much like flowers grown in a greenhouse.
A lab grown diamond is as real as a diamond pulled from the earth, and they sparkle just as brilliantly. The big difference between a natural diamond and a lab made diamond? Lab created diamonds aren’t associated with the unethical practices that are inherent with mined diamonds.
We’re talking about earth displacement, ocean dredging and habitat destruction. If you love diamonds, go guilt free. Get the sparkle you want without the high price tag and unethical concerns.

How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Made?
Like earth-mined diamonds, lab created diamonds are made of pure carbon. Although they’re exactly the same optically, chemically and physically, they’re created very differently.
While natural diamonds pulled from the earth are created over millions of years under intense heat and pressure, man made diamonds are grown fairly quickly in a lab from a single carbon seed. Using advanced technology—either Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) or High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT)—the carbon seed slowly forms into a crystalline structure.
No two diamonds turn out exactly the same, just as no two mined diamonds are the same. Each one differs immensely when graded on the 4C’s criteria: cut, color, clarity and carat. Simply put, lab grown diamonds are real diamonds.

Lab Grown Diamonds vs Natural Diamonds
Let’s be clear: laboratory grown diamonds are real diamonds. Both man made diamonds and mined diamonds are made of a pure crystallized carbon structure. So from their appearance to their chemical makeup, they’re exactly the same. So, what’s the difference between a lab created diamond and a naturally mined diamond? Their impact on the world. Diamond mining is harmful to our planet since miners use hazardous chemicals, not to mention the effects of soil erosion, deforestation, and so on. When you shop lab grown diamonds, you get conflict free diamonds that have a clean origin.
Not only do earth mined diamonds cost you more, but they also cost the world more. A one-carat mined diamond is the product of over 87,000 pounds of displaced earth. That’s no small impact. In fact, there are more than 10,000 abandoned mines in Canada alone. Do the research and you’ll find that there is no reason to buy earth mined diamonds. Not now. Not ever.
Lab Grown Diamonds Vs Diamond Simulants
The difference between man made diamonds and simulants lies in the chemical composition. Diamond simulants—such as the Nexus Diamond™ alternative—are comprised of a proprietary blend of elements that simulate the look, weight and wear of a diamond but are chemically distinct.
Unlike other diamond simulants like cubic zirconia, white sapphire and moissanite, the Nexus Diamond alternative most closely imitates the look of a perfect diamond and also features a patented coating material to reduce porosity and create a harder and heavier stone.
Key Benefits of Lab Grown Diamonds
- Lab grown diamonds are eco-friendly and sustainable as they require significantly less energy and resources to produce compared to mined diamonds.
- They are conflict-free, eliminating the ethical concerns associated with mined diamonds.
- Lab grown diamonds offer greater transparency in the diamond industry, as they can be traced from their origin to the finished product.
