HPHT Lab-grown diamonds are created in highly controlled laboratory environments that duplicate the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the Earth mantle. This controlled environment makes it possible to create the purest form of diamonds (99.99% pure carbon) with fewer impurities and defects than Earth-extracted stones, making lab-grown diamonds whiter, more brilliant and stronger than most mined diamonds.
Possessing the same physical, optical and chemical properties as that of natural diamonds, HPHT Lab-grown diamonds are certified as DIAMONDS by leading international certification agents such as GIA, IGI and HRD.
Lab-grown diamonds are also commonly called lab-created, man-made, cultured or synthetic diamonds. While these names are all synonymous and legitimate, lab-grown diamonds should not be mistaken with diamond simulants such as cubic zirconia (CZ), moissanite, white sapphire and lead crystal that are sometimes advertised illegally as 'synthetic diamonds'.
Unlike the energy intensive and ecologically invasive processes of mining natural diamonds, the procedures of producing HPHT lab-grown diamonds are ethical with minimal environmental impact. The innovative technology of growing diamonds in laboratory represents a true triumph for the protection of environment and human rights. It also made diamond supply chain transparency possible.
