LAB GROWN DIAMONDS
Also called man-made, created, or newborn diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are manufactured in a laboratory by simulating natural conditions of extreme heat and pressure onto a mined, natural diamond crystal seed. Both mined and lab-grown diamonds are identical in chemical, optical and physical composition.
Diamonds were first created in a lab in the 1950’s. However, they weren’t gem quality diamonds that could be used in jewelry. Over the past few decades, the process was further perfected. However, only in the last few years has it been possible to produce large white gem quality diamonds that meet diamonds in terms of desirability.
To the naked eye there is virtually no difference between a natural mined diamond and a lab-grown diamond. Because the two are very difficult to differentiate, we practice complete disclosure and even have our lab-grown diamonds and jewelry tagged differently than our earth-mined diamonds and jewelry.
Lab-grown diamonds are not better or worse than earth-mined diamonds, just different. The family at Bremer wants to offer our guests a variety of options to fit a variety of wants and needs. Learn more about our lab-grown diamond selection from ALTR.
