Although still in its infancy the sale for lab created diamonds is now a real and growing part of the diamond and jewellery industry. There are two driving factors for lab grown diamonds, to provide an ethically sourced product that has not been mined and to have a more economically priced diamond in the market. As a Brisbane diamond merchant, Amari Diamonds, have recognised that there are a number of Australian consumers looking to purchase lab created diamonds for various personal reasons over the standard naturally sourced diamonds.
A lab created diamond is identical in almost every way to a natural diamond except for how they react under different wavelengths of UV light, which make identifying them difficult for even a diamond grading expert. To test this difference the industry has developed a scanner to distinguish the two but there has also been the need for very strict guidelines as to how they are labelled and released into the market to avoid any confusion or misrepresentation between the two products.
Amari Diamonds have partnered directly with several lab grown diamond manufacturers to provide a large source of created diamonds for sale to our Brisbane and surrounding clients who desire a lab created diamond for theirengagement ring.
Ethical choice created diamonds
Lab created diamonds are 100% ethical, created from a chemical vapor in a laboratory under high temperature and pressure (often called HTHP diamonds) to produce a crystal carbon structure of pure grown diamond.
These cultivatedcrystals are then cut into faceted diamonds for jewellery that are completely eco friendly and conflict free. Created diamonds are not a simulant like cubic zirconia or moissanite they are real man made diamonds grown in lab with the identical optical, physical and chemical properties of natural diamonds. Although there have been strict procedures put in place to control the movement or rough diamond to control the problems associated with conflict diamondsmany clients want to have total assurance that the diamond that they are buying is 100% ethically sourced with absolutely no chance that it could have been ablood diamond or even that where it was mined the workers were not unfairly treated.
How to buy a created diamond In Brisbane
lab created diamonds are still quite difficult to buy but can be purchased from a few selected diamond merchants. So far the percentage of lab created diamonds in the market is very small as commercial producers are still limited and as the market acceptance is still being tested.
Created diamonds have been in the market now for a number of years in fancy coloured varieties of yellow, red, pink, blue, green and orange. In more recent times the process to create lab grown jewellery grade white diamonds has been perfected which has really allowed the producers to enter the main diamond market and stack hold a place as a real and viable alternative buying option for consumers to a natural earth sourced diamond.
If you are interested in buying a lab created diamond please contact our staff at Amari Diamonds to discuss your created diamond engagement ring or jewelleryrequirements and book in a consultation. All of our large size created diamonds come with a full international diamond grading laboratory certificate (GIA or IGI) stating that the diamond is lab created.
Lab created diamonds grown for your engagement ring?
So far the major demand for created diamonds has been for ethical choices more than purely price advantage. Choosing a lab createddiamond for your engagement ring is a decision that needs to be considered as areal option for all buyers. There are a number of buyers who do not wish to buy a conventionally mined diamond for because of the chance of possible environmental, labour exploitation, corruption as well as several other concerning issues. Often the reason for buying a lab grown diamond engagement ring is because the better price point allows some buyers the opportunity to have the diamond that they wanted that was not available in the natural market.
