Lab Grown Diamonds You Can Trust in the Crystal Lake, IL Area
Sourcing Lab Grown Diamonds
There's a reason engineered diamonds are called "lab grown," and it's only partly due to marketing. Lab diamonds are started from tiny diamond seeds - actual slivers of diamond that contain the chemical structure laboratories are trying to replicate. The same way that cultured pearls are formed in a controlled environment and made by inoculating mollusks with tissue grafts, diamonds are inoculated inside a highly pressurized and heated chamber. Unlike pearls, which come from and are formed by living organisms, diamonds are not subject to the same genetic variation. Although lab diamonds are not without flaws, the result of years of scientific research is a quality product with replicable results.
What's in a Name?
Regardless of whether you use the term lab-grown diamond, engineered diamond, cultured diamond, man-made diamond, or lab-created diamond, these created diamonds are still optically and chemically identical to natural diamonds. The terms synthetic and artificial are misnomers, because lab diamonds are not fake in terms of structure or composition. Man-made stones are just as durable as natural ones and contain the same elements. Created diamonds are equal if not superior to natural stones; growing in a lab gives scientists and gemologists time to perfect their process to exclude flaws and increase clarity. The next time someone says “artificial diamond” you can be confident in knowing there is no such thing.
Have Yourself a Sparkly Day
Glittering, sparkling diamond earrings and elegant pendants made with created diamonds are a stunning addition to any jewelry collection. Lab grown diamonds can take any form, shape, or size (the largest on record is currently 155 carats!), and can be honed and polished into everything from a marquise to a teardrop. Available in a rainbow of colors, your created diamond jewelry will practically beg to be worn. Whether it's diamond stud earrings to lunch with a friend or a sweet little pendant to your routine appointments, make wearing your fine jewelry an everyday occurrence, and every day will become a special, sparkly occasion.
A Rainbow of Colors
Not only are created diamonds available in brilliant crystal clear, they're also much easier to find in a variety of colors, ranging from a soft powder blue to a millennial pink and even shades of bright yellow. Colored diamonds are much rarer in nature, making them difficult to come by and therefore far more expensive. In the past, sapphires frequently substituted for the elusive and pricey pink and yellow diamonds, but now there's no need to choose between the color you desire and the durability of your jewelry. Lab grown diamonds in yellows, pinks, blues, and even occasionally oranges can light up your jewelry collection like never before.
