EVERYTHING ABOUT LAB GROWN DIAMONDS

Yes they are, they are equal to mined diamonds in every way but cost a lot less.

Simulants do not have the same chemical and physical properties as diamonds, and merely imitate the appearance of a diamond. The most well-known simulant is cubic zirconia, which is a crystal form of zirconium oxide, and moissanite, which is made of silicon carbide. Simulants do not have the same hardness and longevity as real diamonds which last forever. You can find simulants in costume jewellery. Be aware of companies that use the term SIMULANTS to take advantage of uneducated customers. On the other hand, lab grown diamonds are REAL DIAMONDS.

No they are not. Simulants are not diamonds. Be wary of websites such us “DiamondNexus.com” those types of websites sell “diamond simulants” which use very clever writing to mislead customers. They are not real diamonds.

Lab created diamonds started in the 1950’s by General Electric, however they were only being used for industrial purposes due to the low quality in colour and clarity. Over the past few decades scientists and laboratories around the world started improving the methods. But only until just a few years ago they were able to start producing gem quality diamonds, which are now starting to become available to the market.

The diamond tester will positively identify it as a diamond. They both have the exact same composition.

On average 75% cheaper than mined diamonds. If a mine diamond cost €10,000 lab costs €2,500.

Yes we have, however keep in mind GIA unfortunately was very late to enter the lab grown diamond race. Most experts agree that IGI has become the authority of lab created diamonds in the world. You can find more information on our blog <a href="https://novitadiamonds.com/blog/what-should-i-buy-GIA-or-IGI">“What Should I Buy, GIA or IGI”</a>.

Because only round diamond shapes have an agreed pre-determined set of standard rules. While all the other shapes can vary, for example an oval shape can be made wide or elongated, and there is no right or wrong, it comes down to personal preference. While round shape can only be round therefore a standard was set and adopted by everyone.

Origin of diamonds

Ja, das sind sie! Im Gegensatz zu abgebauten Diamanten kann nur bei im Labor gezüchteten Diamanten garantiert werden, dass sie zu 100% konfliktfrei sind. Es ist äußerst schwierig die Herkunft eines Erddiamanten zu kennen, vor allem, wenn er durch viele Hände gegangen ist, nachdem er die Mine verlassen hat.

Ethical Choice

YES, and they are the only diamonds that are genuinely ethical. Do not fall into the misinformation trap set by sellers of mined diamonds. They will falsely claim that the mined diamonds they are selling are ethical. ONLY lab diamonds are truly ethical.

No, Novita is a strong advocate of lab grown diamonds to make the world more sustainable and to ensure the diamonds we sell are guaranteed conflict free. Technology has advanced to the point where diamonds can be grown in the lab that are identical to mined diamonds. As such, they represent a promising alternative to damaging the environment and potentially putting people at a disadvantage in developing countries.
