Whilst diamond mining becomes less sustainable, lab-grown diamonds are grown with electronically produced heat and pressure, mimicking the natural processes but with little impact on the environment. Lab-grown diamonds are vegan friendly since they don’t impact any of the ecosystems that can sometimes be affected by natural diamonds. With so many natural diamonds in the world, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the origin, which some diamond connoisseurs prefer to know. With lab-grown diamonds, it’s easy to track the diamond’s journey from creation to purchase.
There is also the ability to control the environment in which the diamonds are grown, therefore the best possible diamonds are created. Diamonds are full of unique features, and lab-grown are no different, they still vary in colour and clarity depending on the conditions. However, imperfections can be grown out during the process to create a cleaner, rough stone. With no impurities, the diamond is going to be brighter, better and whiter to the point that many lab-grown diamonds receive higher purity ratings than their natural counterparts.
