A New Way of Diamonds

The science and artistry that go into creating a lab-created diamonds are quite remarkable.

Same Chemical Properties

Lab-created diamonds are optically, chemically, and physically identical to their natural counterparts.

IGI Certified

Ethos guarantees the quality of each and every one of their lab-grown diamonds, and they are also IGI certified.

What Are Lab Grown Diamonds?

The origin of a diamond is the sole distinguishing feature between a lab-created diamond and a natural diamond. For a lab-grown diamond, scientists use state-of-the-art techniques to simulate nature and ``grow`` the stone in a controlled environment. The end product is a synthetic diamond that is identical to naturally formed diamonds in every way (chemically, physically, and visually). Since they aren't subject to the same supply chain restrictions as natural diamonds, lab-grown stones may be up to 50 percent cheaper than their natural counterparts of equivalent quality. To put it simply, both natural diamonds and diamonds created in a laboratory are made of carbon. Because of their extreme hardness (a 10 on the Mohs scale), they are just as difficult to chip as a genuine diamond.

How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Made?

Our laboratory-grown diamonds begin as microscopic carbon seeds extracted from natural diamonds. High-tech processes, such as high temperatures and pressures or a CVD deposition process, are analogous to the conditions under which natural diamonds are formed. After being developed, certain manmade diamonds generated by deposition may be subjected to further processing, including pressure and heat. Just as in nature, the presence of minute quantities of certain trace elements throughout the development phase of a synthetic diamond results in the formation of a fancy colored diamond. The specific makeup of trace elements in white and fancy colored man manufactured diamonds may vary from that of their natural diamond counterparts. Only with the use of sophisticated machinery that can identify minute variations in trace components and crystal development can a lab-created diamond be recognized from a genuine diamond.

Lab Grown Diamonds vs. Diamond Simulants

There is a significant difference between lab-grown diamonds and diamond simulants. Cubic zirconia and moissanite are two examples of diamond simulants; both appear like diamonds but aren't. Diamond simulants command far higher prices than lab-grown diamonds due to their superior chemical and physical qualities. It takes nothing more than a trained eye to tell a fake diamond from a lab-made one.
You can tell the difference between a lab-created diamond and a cubic zirconia using a diamond tester that measures heat conductivity. Some diamond testers may incorrectly identify lab-created diamonds and some natural colored diamonds as moissanites because of their similarities in electrical conductivity. Diamonds are single refractive whereas moissanites are double refractive, and this allows gemologists to tell them apart.

Lab Grown Diamond FAQs

Do lab diamonds test as real diamonds?

Lab created diamonds display the same physical, chemical, and optical characteristics as natural diamonds, along with the same fire, scintillation, and sparkle. They are real diamonds. Lab created diamonds are nearly impossible to differentiate from natural diamonds with the naked eye. Lab grown diamonds can be distinguished from natural diamonds if specialized equipment is used to test them.

Are lab grown diamonds flawless?

Like natural diamonds, lab created diamonds will vary in color, clarity, and cut. Each one is unique. Lab created diamonds may contain minor internal or surface inclusions, comparable to high quality natural diamonds. Lab diamonds are evaluated and graded by independent gemological labs that certify natural diamonds, using the same strict standards.

Do lab created diamonds get cloudy?

Since they are physically and chemically the same as naturally mined diamonds, lab created diamonds do not have a lower durability and will not get cloudy over time.

Are lab grown diamonds a good investment?

Customers looking for a mining-free alternative or a larger stone within their budget may prefer lab diamonds as they are generally at a lower price point compared to naturally mined options. As with any gemstone, the resale value can vary over time. Since lab diamonds are a more recent introduction to the market, there is more uncertainty on future pricing, when compared to natural diamonds.
