Lab-Grown Diamonds vs. Mined Diamonds: What's the Difference?

  • 2 min read

When it comes to diamonds, there are two main options: lab-grown diamonds and mined diamonds. Both are real diamonds, but one has some major  disadvantages. 

Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds are created in a laboratory using a process called high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) synthesis or chemical vapor deposition (CVD). They have the same chemical and physical properties as mined diamonds, meaning they are just as hard and just as durable. The big difference is lab grown diamonds are created in a laboratory. 

Lab-grown diamonds are typically 30-40% less expensive than mined diamonds. This is because there are way less people involved when producing lab grown diamonds. It's often unknown how many people "touched" a mined diamond. 

Lab-grown diamonds are way more environmentally friendly than mined diamonds. This is because they do not require mining, which has negative impact on the environment. 

Mined Diamonds

Mined diamonds are diamonds that are extracted from the earth. They are formed  when carbon is subjected to extreme heat and pressure. Mined diamonds are typically more expensive than lab-grown diamonds. This is because they are more difficult to obtain, which includes a lot more people.

Mined diamonds are also more controversial than lab-grown diamonds. This is because the mining process has negative impact on the environment and the people who live in the areas where diamonds are mined.

So, Which is Right for You?

Ultimately, the decision of whether to buy a lab-grown diamond or a mined diamond is a personal one. There is no right or wrong answer, and the best choice for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences.
