Lab Grown diamonds vs Real Diamonds
LAB CREATED DIAMONDS REVIEW…A jewellery valuer, diamond grader and gemmologist’s personal opinion
TO SELL OR NOT TO SELL? THAT IS THE QUESTION… TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY?
I am still on the fence when it comes to laboratory grown diamonds. I really can’t say why, but below I have compiled the five top benefits and to why you may want to purchase laboratory grown diamonds!
- They are much cheaper than natural diamonds
- Ethically produced (marketed accordingly)
- Same gemmological properties, beauty, hardness and adamantine lustre
- Even an experienced valuer will find it difficult to differentiate
- You can buy a bigger diamond of better colour and clarity
Whether the industry likes it or not, they are coming to our shores from the USA and into our jewellery shops now. Even DeBeers are on this bandwagon. What I am seeing in all the Gem & Diamond Publications is that DeBeers are spending millions of dollars on branding their very own laboratory grown diamonds. There are also many other factories now manufacturing their own laboratory grown diamonds. So, I am letting you know I have access to these goods if anyone is interested. They are sold in exactly the same way as their natural counterparts. VS, VVS, SI, H, G, F etc.
