Lab Grown Diamonds are the best choice for today's conscientious and knowledgeable consumers. Lab grown diamonds are more affordable, half the price of mined diamonds, and have less direct impact on the environment. Lab grown diamonds are chemically and structurally identical to mined diamonds....no difference. Think of it like this...test tube baby versus natural baby...both are identical just conceived differently. The GIA..the most respected gem lab in the world has recognized and stated that lab grown diamonds are identical to mined diamonds. So, as a consumer get on board with lab grown diamonds and spend only half the money you would have spent on a mined diamond...and at the same time you'll be helping save the environment too.
