Already many terms exist to describe this new technology,
synthetic, man-made, lab-grown, cultured or cultivated diamonds.
All these terms refer to the same product. We prefer to call
our diamonds cultivated or lab-grown diamonds simply because
it best depicts the essence of their creation as we have simply
captured and replicated the forces found deep inside the Earth
in the lab.
they Real Diamonds?
Yes. They are real diamonds at the very atomic structure.
Every diamond from our lab is grown out of atoms of Carbon
— the base material of natural diamonds. Deep within
the Earth's mantle atoms of Carbon are exposed to the powerful
forces of nature and are subjected to Extremes of Pressure
and Temperature. Science has learnt how to re-create the very
same conditions in the laboratory in order to be able to transform
Carbon into another of its natural structural forms —
Diamond. The method is called HPHT — High Pressure High
Temperature and is a primary and favourable technology now
used in the field of cultivated diamonds.
To read more about HPHT
A lab-grown diamond that starts off as atoms of Carbon undergoes
the same stages of crystal formation and growth in conditions
similar to natural ones. The end result is a gem quality diamond
that is in no respects different to its earth-grown counterpart.
Cultivated Diamonds are often called "Synthetic Diamonds"
implying that they are grown in the lab as oppose to its natural
occurrence in the Earth Crust. Cultivated diamonds are neither
simulants nor enhanced nor treated diamonds
and not to be confused with Cubic Zirconia or Maisonette that
mostly imitate the lustre and fire of a diamond. See Diamond
Statistics for more info.
do Diamond Tests say about man-grown diamonds?
Without exception, all tests positively confirm the unique
optical, chemical and physical properties of lab-grown diamonds,
including the unmistakably high ratios of hardness, toughness,
and gravity that belong to the diamond crystals only.
