Lab-Created Diamonds – A More Sustainable Option

Lab-Created Diamonds - A More Sustainable Option

Can you mine precious metals like gold or silver using any sustainable or environment-friendly option? The answer is a big NO. But unlike precious metals, diamonds similarly mined can also be created in a laboratory! This write-up finds out the advantages of buying lab-created diamonds for your jewelry.

What are Lab-Created Diamonds? 

Unlike natural diamonds, which are formed over millions of years under the earth, lab-created diamonds are a product of artificial processes. Lab-created diamonds were first developed in the 1950s, but the technology to produce them has come a long way. The only difference between natural mined diamonds and lab-created diamonds is that lab-created ones are not found in nature. Lab-created diamonds are increasingly gaining in popularity. Let us find the reasons to opt for them for your jewelry. 

Identical to Mined Diamonds – Chemically and Structurally 

Lab-created diamonds are chemically and structurally identical to mined diamonds. Lab-created diamonds are made from carbon and placed under high pressure and heat in a laboratory. Creating a lab diamond is very similar to the way natural diamonds are formed. They have the same optical, electrical, and thermal properties. 

Variety of Colors and Carat Weights 

Lab-created diamonds are available in a variety of colors and carat weights. The color of the diamond is determined by the type of carbon used to create the diamond. Yellow diamonds are formed with nitrogen, blue diamonds are created with boron, and green diamonds are created with chromium. 

The weight of a lab-created diamond is measured in carats. Lab-created diamonds range in weight from less than one carat to over ten carats. Further, lab-created diamonds are available in various shapes, including round, oval, princess, and Asscher. 

Widely Available with Retailers 

Advancements in technology have made it possible to bring down the cost of producing lab-created diamonds. Today, you can easily get lab-created diamonds from various retailers – both online and in stores. 

Affordable and Environment-Friendly 

Lab-created diamonds are on the rise in the jewelry industry. They are just as beautiful as natural ones. They come in a range of colors and styles and are more affordable. 

A significant advantage of lab-created diamonds is that they are conflict-free. They are ethically produced and require no mining. They produce lesser carbon dioxide. All this indirectly helps to protect the environment. 


Lab-created diamonds provide a more sustainable option for diamond jewelry purchases. They are ethically and environmentally friendly and offer quality comparable to natural diamonds. Consumers looking for elegant and sustainable diamond jewelry pieces should consider buying a lab-created diamond.
