Side-by-side, a lab, and a natural diamond engagement ring will virtually look the same without any difference. Both diamonds have identical uses and features with just the difference in price, that is, lab diamonds cost about 40% to 50% less than natural diamonds. An added worth to lab diamonds different from mined diamonds would be that they are ethical and eco-friendly thus affording the wearer luxury at a lesser cost to the environment. They also have a resale value, which will be a portion of the original price, just as mined diamonds.
Lab diamonds have the same crystallized carbon makeup, and the same heat conductivity like any other diamond which means that they also test as real diamonds on a diamond tester.
Possessing the same chemical build-up as mined diamonds, lab diamonds also have the durability and lengthy shelf-life of their natural counterparts with no chance of dulling or loss in sparkle. Lab diamonds are budget-friendly and just as suitable for an engagement ring as natural ones.
Lab diamonds have the same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds which makes them just as eligible for insurance as any mined diamond. The brilliance, sparkle, and durability of the lab diamond give it just as much insurance value, and not to mention, they test positive as diamonds.
Lab diamonds are not only very affordable, but they are also cost-effective and conflict-free, because they are lab-grown no ethical issues would arise in relation to their origin. Made under controlled conditions, lab diamonds also boast a higher purity and clarity in comparison to natural diamonds with no visible inclusions.
