5 REASONS TO CHOOSE A LAB-GROWN DIAMOND
Over the years interest in lab-grown diamonds has increased with more and more people choosing them over mined diamonds. Consumers are becoming more ethically conscious, and in turn social perspectives have also shifted to view lab-grown diamonds as something to be proud of. While being eco-friendly and more affordable they are also identical to mined diamonds, making them a great choice amongst savvy diamond shoppers. If you love Bindi Irwin’s engagement ring, consider choosing a lab-grown diamond.
We’ve outlined 5 reasons people are choosing lab-grown diamonds over mined diamonds.
Lab-grown diamonds are identical to mined diamonds
Lab-grown diamonds are made in a controlled laboratory to duplicate the earth’s natural environment making them optically, physically and chemically identical to mined diamonds. While lab-grown diamonds possess the same enchanting sparkle and strength, they also offer the added bonus of having less impurities than minded diamonds, making them a superior purchase for any ring.
Lab-grown diamonds offer better value
Lab-grown diamonds offer excellent value and are more affordable than their mined counterparts, costing 50-70% less. At a fraction of the cost this allows you the freedom to purchase a larger stone of the same quality or higher. This will leave money for equally important things like a house, honeymoon or holiday.
Lab-grown diamonds are a socially responsible choice
Ethically minded consumers are becoming increasingly aware of socially responsible products and so are looking for ethical alternatives when shopping for engagement rings. People want such a special moment in their lives to be free of guilt and filled with positivity. The controlled environment of lab-grown diamonds means you will have a guaranteed place of origin, so you can be certain that your stunning diamond is conflict-free and socially responsible. So why wouldn’t you choose the more socially and environmentally responsible option?
Lab-grown diamonds are environmentally superior
There is more information available to diamond shoppers now than ever before and many consumers have learned about the negative environmental impacts of diamond mining. Mining diamonds take a huge toll on our Earth, causing tonnes of Earth to be disrupted and gallons of water to be wasted. Lab-grown diamonds require significantly less electricity and water making them environmentally friendly. This greatly reduces their carbon footprint resulting in a more sustainable purchase.
Lab-grown diamonds are on the cutting edge of technology
The advances in technology have not only allowed us to create diamonds in a laboratory but have rapidly improved their quality. Lab-grown diamonds are now whiter, brighter and clearer than ever before. It is rare for the Jewellery Industry to venture into something new, but lab-grown diamonds offer everything you could hope to find in an engagement ring. An equally beautiful alternative to suit a variety of budgets.
