Lab Diamond Studs for Everyday Wear
There is no denying that Mother Nature has plenty to offer us, but it is also true that she can use some help from time to time. While diamonds that occur naturally are beautiful, we are lucky to have the technology to make them ourselves. And before you even ask: don’t worry, lab grown diamonds are very much real and authentic. Not to mention, they make for the perfect stud earrings for everyday wear.
What is a Stud Earring?
When shopping for diamond earrings there are many different styles to choose from. Halo, clusters, drops, and studs are all beautiful options to choose from. Stud earrings are earrings that consist of a single diamond or gemstone. They are available in various carat weights and stone shapes.
Why Studs are Great for Everyday Wear
When searching for the perfect pair of earrings to wear everyday, studs should be at the top of your list. Their simplistic design is perfect for those searching to add some sparkle to their ears but wish to stay away from big statement earrings. Not to mention, studs are easy to wear and very lightweight which makes them perfect for wearing to work, running out to the store, and even playing with your kids. Studs really are the perfect earrings for those who want something beautiful they can wear day after day.
What exactly is a lab grown diamond?
Also known as cultivated diamonds or cultured diamonds, lab grown diamonds are, as the name implies, lab created diamonds. They are “made” inside a lab using advanced technologies that replicate the natural environment where diamonds grow in the wild.
Lab Diamonds vs. Natural Diamonds
Natural diamonds can take millions of years to form within the crust of the earth. On the contrary, lab grown diamonds can be produced at a much faster pace while still having the same chemical structure and optical properties of its natural counterpart. Think of the process as being similar to that of genetically modifying fruits and produce. It is the same process that has allowed us to eat bananas without seeds.
Rising Popularity in Lab Diamonds
The history of the lab diamond is a bit hazy. Some evidence suggests they were being made as early as the late 1800s, though most reports state the 1940s as the origin date for lab grown diamonds. General Electric, the same company that makes your washer and dryer, is credited with creating the first batch of lab diamonds in 1954. Just a few decades later, during the 1970s, gem-quality stones became available, and, just a few years after that, in the 1980s, high quality lab grown diamonds took off and became commercially available. Today, lab diamonds are so ubiquitous and in such high demand that they have given rise to an industry worth tens of billions of dollars. They are being used in crafting everyone’s favorite jewelry pieces, including stud earrings.
Pros of Lab Diamonds
Lab diamond jewelry offers plenty of perks and benefits – which are some of the reasons they make for the perfect pair of stud reasons. In addition to letting us fast-forward the diamond creation process, lab diamonds can give customers peace of mind by being more affordable and better for the environment.
Diamonds that have been buried deep in the earth’s sediments for eons can oftentimes be hard to reach. Many scientists and environmentalists believe that the amount of energy that it takes to grow a diamond in a lab is less than the amount of energy required to dig a diamond out of the ground.
Lab diamonds are generally less expensive than natural diamonds. This is specially the case for colored diamonds: since they are extremely rare, they are also very expensive. A colored diamond grown in a lab, however, is much more affordable, giving you an opportunity to wear lab grown diamond stud earrings in your favorite color without paying an exorbitant amount.
