What is a Lab Diamond?

The diamonds are formed from actual carbon atoms. These are arranged with the exact characteristic diamond crystal structure of a naturally made diamond.

Due to the fact that these diamonds are made from the same material as natural alternatives, they have the same chemical and optical properties. This means that they offer the exact aesthetic of a natural diamond.

These diamonds provide fantastic value and are more affordable than the typical natural diamond. Some also believe that they are more ethical products as well.

Are Lab Diamonds Simulant Diamonds?

It’s worth noting that these are not the same as stimulant diamonds. Diamond stimulants such as cubic zirconia look like diamonds, but they are not carbon crystals like lab diamonds. Due to this, they do not have the same physical or chemical properties. As such, they can be purchased on the market for far lower prices. However, this is due to the fact that the difference between real diamonds and stimulants can be seen with the naked eye. In contrast, lab diamonds and natural diamonds are virtually indistinguishable. Even an expert would have trouble choosing between the two.

Lab diamonds are available in a range of different sizes, styles, colors and colorless ranges. At Michael Jewelers we have Lab diamonds and custom jewelry in Newtown PA.
