What are Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab grown diamonds are original diamonds that are made inside a lab facility using certain technological advancements that mimic the carbon bonding process found in the natural diamond making process. These diamonds have the exact same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds. The only difference is that these are made in a lab under a controlled environment.

Now despite this fact, many still seek answers to the question, “Are lab-grown-diamonds real or fake?”

To establish the truth to this question, let’s take an example of ‘test-tube-babies’. Without getting into too much about how test-tube babies are made, let’s just ask the question, “Are these babies real?” If you feel yes, which it in fact is, then lab-grown diamonds are nothing but the test-tub-babies of the jewelry world.

What Are The Advantages of Lab Grown Diamonds?

One of the most impactful aspects of technological advancements in the world, is their provision to new perspectives that challenge age-old and often outdated beliefs. With diamonds in particular, we have been subjugated to a lot of misconceptions and misinformation peddled to us by cartels through well-curated PR & advertising campaigns.

The first and foremost advantage you get by choosing lab grown diamonds is a testament to yourself being a conscious, intellectual, and ethical person - all traits which kindle an unparalleled touch of confidence to your persona. You know what they say – ‘Beauty starts within’.

Lower Carbon Footprints

“The advantages to the environment are just the tip of the iceberg.”

Lab-grown diamonds have a carbon footprint that’s up to 25 times lower than mined diamonds. While mined diamonds require massive earth-moving equipment and gallons of fuel, lab-grown diamonds are created in controlled environments, keeping Mother Earth happy and your conscience clear.

Water & Soil Conservation

Conservation as we is a bit more than just action. It’s more of a mindset, behaviour and a culture we need to inculcate so we can sustain. So when it comes to choosing alternatives to mined diamonds, you can be sure that lab-grown diamonds are the perfect choice helping in water and soil conservation. Traditional diamond mining wreaks havoc on the environment, consuming copious amounts of water and displacing tons of soil. Lab-grown diamonds, on the other hand, need significantly less water and don’t mess with the earth.

The Same Luxury of Mined Diamonds - AT A MUCH LESSER COST

We all love ourselves a good deal. Especially when it comes to buying jewelry online, every retailer giving you gazillion options to choose from, we get it! And that’s also one of the reasons why we at QueByM have invested so much on lab-grown diamonds; With the same quality and finish of a natural diamond at 30-40% of the cost, I mean who can resist really!

These diamonds boast the same fire, brilliance, and scintillation, making them perfect for everything from engagement rings to everyday sparkle. This cost-benefit also makes it a killer of a gifting option! Think about it, when was the last time anyone really had the ability to give away a diamond! These precious little things, we want to keep them all for ourselves! But well, now with the economically viable option of lab-grown diamonds, we can certainly be a yay more generous.

Certifications and Grading Standards

The last thing you need to be worried about is the authenticity. Lab-grown diamonds come with certifications from reputable gemmological labs such as IGI, and are graded on the same standards as natural/mined diamonds. There is absolutely no difference in the way their quality is certified. You’ll get the full show on cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight, ensuring your gem is the real deal.

What this means for you as a customer is a physically same, chemically same, and top quality certified diamond that comes at a fraction of the cost! It just gets better and better doesn’t it?

Ethical Business and Ethical Consumerism

Unfortunately for us, things in the diamond mining space hasn’t gone off too well; In all aspects be it environmental degradation, human abuse, or unethical business practices. Mining of any resource has a massive impact on people and the planet. With diamonds being the crème of the market and having a value that brings out the virtue of greed so easily in humans, their mining has led to serious human rights violations and even the formation of cartels that control their supply and demand.

By choosing lab-grown diamonds, you support these new decentralized and liberal systems that allow anyone to get in on the game. Especially to us at QueByM – it’s more of a passion and artform that we wish to share with the world.

Conclusion

So, there you have it! Lab-grown diamonds are not just a trend—they’re a revolution seeking more support from the younger consumers who are the flagbearers of a better tomorrow.

If you as a conscious individual are given an alternative that is physically alike, chemically same, quality at par, eco-friendly, easier to access, and a holistic alternative for a better world, why haven’t you just bought it as yet?
