What are Lab Diamonds
Lab diamonds are chemically, physically, and optically the same as mined diamonds. The difference is that it is created inside a lab using cutting-edge technology to replicate the natural diamond growing process.
Why Choose Lab Diamonds
Lab diamonds are not in competition with those mined when it comes to quality. However, they are significantly less expensive, more ethically sourced, and environmentally kind in comparison.
Benefits of Lab Diamonds
Advantages Moissanite Has Over Diamonds
A diamond is graded based on the 4C’s: Clarity, Carat, Cut, and Color. However, the value of Moissanite is solely in its size and color, making it about 20% the cost of a diamond the same size and quality.
Moissanite was initially mistaken for a diamond because of its similarities. However, further research would show that Moissanite has measurably more luster, brilliance, and fire. Not to mention, value!
Moissanite gemstones are a 9.25 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, so they are suitable for daily wear and can stand up to scratching, chipping, breaking, and abrasion, similar to diamonds, which grade as 10.
Moissanite has an incredible brilliance and faceting pattern that shimmers and sparkles in every light. Its refractive index of 2.65 – 2.69 is higher than a natural diamond which lends to its brighter shine.
