LAB GROWN DIAMOND BENEFITS: WHY?
Lab created diamonds are more affordable in comparison to natural diamonds. You can expect to pay 15% to 30% less on a lab diamond than you would on a mined diamond. This price difference is because mined diamonds go through a longer supply chain and require more costly resources.
EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY & BEAUTY
Lab grown or man made diamonds are identical to their naturally grown, and mined counterparts. They have the same beautiful visual, robust physical, and chemical traits. And are known as the hardest substance known to man.
Both natural and lab diamonds require carbon, and intense heat and high pressure to grow. While mined diamonds form within the Earth, lab grown diamonds are made in an environment with cutting-edge equipment that mirrors the Earth’s mantle conditions. Therefore, no mining deposits are needed!
What is a Lab Created Diamond?
When someone purchases a diamond, the consumer should be knowledgable whether their diamond is natural or lab grown. Many might think that lab created diamonds are not real, but that is false. Lab grown, lab created, or man made diamonds are the hardest substance known to man (with mined diamonds). These kind of diamonds have the same visual, physical, and chemical features to their natural counterparts. Like natural diamonds, lab created diamonds also require carbon, intense heat, and high pressure to grow.

The Gemological Institute of America is a nonprofit institute that has an international authority on diamonds, gemstones, and pearls. GIA was founded in 1931, and in the 1940s, established the “4Cs” (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight) or the “International Diamond Grading System.” The GIA is arguably the leading source of knowledge for all gemstones and jewelry, which is why all With Clarity Natural Diamonds are graded by GIA.
Antwerp World Diamond Center is recognized as one of the leaders in the diamond industry. For more than five centuries, Antwerp in the country of Belgium has been the capital for international diamond trade. They stand for transparency, integrity, quality, and sustainability. Their main mission is to inspire the current generations and future generations to keep Antwerp at the forefront of the diamond trade industry.
The American Gem Society started in 1943 to protect jewelry consumers. While the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is the industry’s leading diamond lab, the AGS is not far behind. Like GIA, AGS is also a nonprofit organization. AGS stands out amongst other diamond grading systems because they use a 0 to 10 scale, with 0 as the best and 10 as the worst.

At Gemological Science International, hundreds of researchers seek to use advanced technology and intelligent software to automate the diamond grading process (which is usually graded by hand). GSI diamond grading reports stand for “innovation, integrity, and professionalism.” GSI labs in places like the United States, India, Belgium, and Israel follow the alphabetical grading system.
Synthetic or simulated diamonds are diamond alternatives like cubic zirconia. These do not have the same visual or chemical properties of lab or natural diamonds. They also do not have the durability or sparkle. Learn more about Natural vs Synthetic Diamonds.
