What are Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab grown diamonds ARE diamonds. They are not fake—there is no chemical, visual, or structural difference and they are both composed of incredibly pure crystal carbon as a single crystal.

How are Lab Grown Diamonds made?

1. Beginning with a small seed in a controlled environment, lab created diamonds are developed using techniques that replicate the natural conditions in which diamonds develop beneath the Earth’s crust.

2. Using either the Carbon Vapour Deposition (CVD) or High-Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) processes, our diamond seed slowly grows into a pure rough diamond.

3. Our unique use of plasma in the growing process along with precise cutting and polishing procedures ensure that the majority of Valour lab grown diamonds are Ideal/Excellent cuts in the Type IIa category.

What are the benefits of Lab Diamonds?

Valour Diamonds come with 3 main benefits:

1. Eco-Friendly: Man-made diamonds have a minimal environmental impact as they are created in a laboratory, therefore they are sustainable diamonds.

2. Lower Price Point: Lab grown diamonds come in at about 30%-50% less expensive than their mined diamond due to their reduced supply chain.

3. Ethically Sourced: Lab grown diamonds do not have to deal with dangerous mining conditions or horrible labor practices such as child labor.

What is the difference between a Lab Grown Diamond and a simulant?

A lab grown diamond is composed of incredibly pure crystal carbon as a single crystal and has refraction and hardness identical to a natural diamond’s. Simulants may look similar but are made up of materials such as cubic zirconium, moissanite, and diamond-coated materials, which simply do not match the quality that you would get in a diamond.

What is the difference between Man-Made Diamonds VS Mined Diamonds?

Man-Made diamonds are created like mined diamonds. Labs recreate the conditions underneath the Earth that result in diamond growth: pressure, heat, & carbon.

Ask yourself this…

Is ice made in your freezer at home and ice that is naturally formed on the lake at a very cold temperature any different?

How are lab grown diamonds certified and graded?

Lab grown diamonds are graded similarly to their natural counterparts. They are graded and certified by gemological laboratories such as IGI, GCAL, EGL, orGIA. Valour will always provide the grading report with any diamond we offer to our customers. Those reports can be verified by looking up the ID number on the gemological lab’s website.
