Lab Diamond Ring Specialists

What are Lab Grown Diamonds?

Lab created diamonds are not imitations but genuine gems produced by scientists under conditions that mimic those underground where natural diamonds form.

Natural diamonds take billions of years to form deep within the Earth, emerging as glittering treasures through mining. On the other hand, lab-grown diamonds are crafted using cutting edge processes that emulate Mother Nature's diamond forming magic.

Whether natural or lab created, both diamonds dazzle with the same sparkle, fire and brilliance. To the naked eye, they're nearly identical. Any differences are often so subtle that only specialised equipment can detect them.

Lab grown diamonds, also known as lab-created or synthetic diamonds, are identical to natural ones in almost every way - from their pure carbon composition to their mesmerising sparkle.

Eco Friendly Diamond Rings

How are Lab Grown diamonds made?

Lab-grown diamonds, also known as lab created diamonds, aren't your average gemstones.

To ethically produce lab created diamond rings, scientists replicate the conditions that form natural diamonds over billions of years in just weeks using two main methods: High Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD). These methods involve subjecting small seed crystals of pure carbon to extreme heat and pressure, mimicking the natural diamond-forming conditions underground.

The HPHT technique replicates the natural diamond-forming conditions by applying extreme heat and immense pressure on pure carbon material for several weeks or months until it crystallizes into rough gem-quality stones ready for cutting and polishing.

Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) also fast-forwards nature’s process by creating a plasma environment where carbon atoms deposit onto a substrate, gradually forming a diamond layer by layer.

So, next time you're admiring that sparkling ring from Morgan & Co, remember it's much more than just another pretty stone—it's eco friendly, ethical and science at its most beautiful.

How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Certified And Graded?

Lab-grown diamonds undergo the same rigorous certification and grading process as natural diamonds, ensuring quality and authenticity. These diamonds are created from small seed crystals under conditions that mimic nature's underground marvels.

Once formed, these synthetic gems head for grading by an independent party, such as IGI or GIA. Sophisticated tools assess the diamonds' colour, clarity, cut, and carat weight - the famous 4Cs. Tiny details, like fluorescence, aren't overlooked either.

All these data points go into an official report that verifies the stone's authenticity and outlines its unique traits. This information proves invaluable for buyers on the hunt for the perfect piece, such as a lab diamond engagement ring.
