Lab Created Diamonds
Here at Everett Designers of Fine Jewelry, we specialize in lab grown diamonds rather than mined diamonds. While we still use traditional mined diamonds, here are a few reasons why we prefer the lab created diamonds instead.
- The mined diamond market is not a natural market. Naturally formed diamonds are not particularly rare, but the De Beers Group holds back inventory to artificially inflate the prices. Thus, lab created diamonds often cost much less than mined diamonds.
- However, just because they are cheaper and made in a lab, doesn’t mean they are inferior. Lab created diamonds are no different than natural diamonds, and are impossible to tell from natural diamonds based on visual inspection.
- Mining diamonds is destructive to the environment
- Mined diamonds bring with them the stigma of “blood diamonds”
