The first thing that should be mentioned is that lab grown diamonds are REAL DIAMONDS. It’s easy to assume that lab grown diamonds are “fake,” but that is far from the truth! The only real difference from a natural diamond is their origin. A lab grown diamond is chemically and physically a diamond. They carry the same properties and are evaluated in the same way. That is why a natural and lab grown diamond with the same specifications will look exactly the same.

There are also many other reasons to seriously consider a lab grown diamond! Couples are gravitating more and more to this option based on the reasonable price alone. Here are a few other things to think about when it comes to buying a lab grown diamond:

  • If you and your partner are considering a fancy shape (or non- round diamond shape), going for a lab grown diamond will allow you to see many high quality options. For these shapes, like ovals, cushions, or radiant cuts, the lab grown options are more consistently cut and can be close to “perfect” at a reasonable cost.
  • For any shape, there are tons of options in any budget when you are open to a lab grown diamond. If you are looking at a specific clarity, color, or carat size, the natural diamond selection is much more limited in availability. Choosing from the lab grown selection will allow you to find what you are looking for with less compromise and often much faster.
    ** For example, ovals are an extremely popular shape and in the 2 - 2.5 carat range, can be hard to find if you have particular specifications. The selection of lab grown options are more readily available in that carat range.
  • It’s worth mentioning again that lab grown diamonds are typically more affordable than natural diamonds. This is mainly due to their shorter supply chain and abundance. The less expensive price tag means that couples are able to purchase a higher quality diamond, think about more intricate designs for wedding bands, or use their funds for something else that is important to them. This is what makes lab grown diamonds such an empowering option!
