Why More Brides Are Turning to Lab-Grown Rings Over Mined Alternatives
For most brides-to-be, an engagement ring represents the tangible fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Everyone yearns to find their life partner, and this dream really comes true the moment that your significant other slips the engagement ring on your finger.
An engagement is many things—a promise, the charting of a new course in your life, and the closure of what came before. Considering the magnitude of what it represents, why settle for anything less than your dream ring?
Brides-to-be—who are increasingly taking part in selecting their engagement and wedding jewelry—no longer have to settle for choosing from a preexisting crop of traditional diamond solitaires. Today, the “dream ring” of your wildest imaginings can be made into reality.
What Are Lab-Grown Diamonds?
Lab-created (or lab-grown) diamonds offer an ethical, affordable, customizable alternative to mined diamonds.
Lab-grown diamonds are the product of technological processes that replicate the natural diamond growing process. These diamonds are chemically and physically similar to diamonds derived from the Earth. They are genuine, ethically sourced stones made possible through cutting-edge technology.
How Is It Possible to “Grow” Diamonds in a Lab?
You may have heard the motivational quote about how “diamonds are made under pressure.” While this is partially true, the diamond-making process is a bit more complicated than pressure alone. By understanding how diamonds form naturally, we’re now able to recreate those processes in controlled environments.
According to geologists, mined diamonds likely formed 1 billion to 3 billion years ago within the Earth, eventually finding their way to the Earth’s surface through volcanic eruptions. But it turns out you don’t need billions of years (or volcanic eruptions) to form authentic, stunning diamonds.
Because we know the conditions that produce diamonds naturally, we’ve been able to recreate those conditions in our laboratories. Using the processes of High Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), Clean Origin produces real, customizable diamonds without the ethical concerns common to diamond mining processes.
What Are the Benefits of Lab-Created Diamonds?
Our customers prefer our lab-grown diamond engagement rings because:
