5 Reasons to Buy a Lab-grown Diamond Engagement Ring

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, and for many years, natural diamonds were the only way to get them. But more and more people are learning about lab-grown diamonds and deciding that they fit their needs better than natural stones do. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider purchasing one for your engagement ring with a lab-grown diamond!

Less Expensive

You probably already know that diamonds are expensive, but did you know that lab-grown diamonds are actually less expensive than natural diamonds? This is because the process of growing a lab-grown diamond requires fewer resources than mining one.

In addition to being less expensive, lab-grown diamonds also cost less because they're not as rare. There are enough natural diamonds in the world for everyone who wants one, but only a few people want them badly enough to pay thousands of dollars for them. If someone doesn't want a piece of carbon crystalized by pressure and heat deep below the Earth's surface—and many don't—he or she can buy a synthetic alternative at about half the cost.

Environmentally Friendly

Ever wondered how diamonds are made? Well, you probably have. After all, think about what it takes to make a diamond. You have to mine them from the earth and then cut them into gemstones that are beautiful enough for engagement rings—all while taking into account that they’re one of the hardest materials on Earth.

Lab-grown diamonds don't require any of those steps! They're created in a lab by replicating nature's process of creating diamonds through intense heat and pressure at extremely high temperatures (over 1,000 degrees Celsius). This means no need for mining or cutting down trees; they're also free from chemical bleaching treatments used during natural diamond production processes.

What’s more? Lab-grown diamonds aren't just eco-friendly—they're also renewable resources! These manmade gemstones can be reproduced again and again without depleting existing supplies or harming our planet as much as traditional mines do (though we still encourage recycling your old jewelry whenever possible).

The Quality is Identical

The quality of lab-grown diamonds is identical to natural diamonds. They are every bit as hard, clear, colorless and well-cut as their natural counterparts. The difference is that they have no history or attached value (the diamond has been in circulation for millions of years), which means that you are getting the same quality at a fraction of the price.

If you want your diamond engagement ring to look just as crisp and beautiful as one that was found underground thousands of years ago—but don't want to spend thousands on it—a lab-grown diamond is the perfect choice for you!

Same Sparkle and Shine

The reason you love a diamond is because of its physical properties and the way they shine. When purchasing a lab-grown diamond, you are getting every ounce of sparkle, fire and scintillation that natural diamonds have to offer.

Lab-grown diamonds are made in the same manner as natural diamonds with only one difference: they don't come from the earth.

Because they have identical physical characteristics like cut, color and clarity, lab-grown diamonds will also be graded by GIA (Gemological Institute of America) just like mined ones. This means that if an I color gem has been certified by GIA as having an AGS (American Gem Society) certificate number on it; this will be true for your lab-grown diamond as well

And lastly, lab-diamonds are just as hard as natural stones!

Ethically Sourced

Diamonds are a symbol of love and commitment, but many diamonds are mined in war-torn countries where children as young as 5 years old work in dangerous conditions. The United Nations has said that “the blood from the mines runs into rivers, lakes and dams” and that “the diamond industry is one of the most morally corrupt industries on the planet.” Diamonds are also associated with slavery; many workers risk their lives to find them in unsafe conditions while others live under debt bondage after they arrive at their destination country.

If you want to avoid these unethical practices when buying a diamond engagement ring, consider a lab-grown diamond instead—they're ethically sourced and cruelty free!

Final Thoughts

Diamonds are a symbol of love and commitment. They’re timeless and ageless, which makes them the perfect gift for your partner. If you want to give her something special, but don’t have a lot of money to spend on jewelry, consider buying an engagement ring made with lab-grown diamonds instead. These gems will not only look just as beautiful as natural diamonds—they may even sparkle more brightly!
