70% of millenials today would consider purchasing lab grown diamonds. Lab grown diamonds are more eco-friendly and sustainable compared to natural diamonds. It is within scientists' best interest to conserve energy in order to save money and keep costs down. The growth process does not deplete natural resources nor does it require tremendous energy to create.
Our Lab Grown Diamonds are Type IIa Diamonds
Lab grown diamonds are not a "knock off" or fake. They are identical to natural diamonds in every way! Lab grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical qualities as a mined natural diamond. Diamonds are made up of 99.95% carbon, the remaining .05 percent may include one or more trace elements, or atoms that aren't part of the diamond's essential chemistry. Type IIa diamonds account for less than 2% of the world’s mined diamonds. They must be almost or entirely devoid of impurities. Considered to be the purest form of diamond known to man, their purity allows light to pass through the stone unhindered, making them more beautiful and valuable.
