Man Made Diamonds, also known as Lab Grown Diamonds, are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments that use advanced technological processes that replicate the exact conditions under which diamonds naturally grow when they form beneath the earth.
These diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the same characteristic diamond structure and since they have the same material make up as natural diamonds, they exhibit the exact optical and chemical properties.
Our lab created diamonds are grown from the tiny carbon seeds of pre-existing diamonds. Advanced technology is able to mimic the natural method of diamond formation. In both white lab diamonds, the exact composition of trace elements may differ from their natural diamond counterparts.
Lab diamonds can only be distinguished from natural diamonds using specialised equipment that can detect the minor differences in trace elements and crystal growth.
Why Do People Choose Lab Grown Diamonds?
Being created in a Lab ultimately means there is less mining for Natural and therefore they are environmentally friendly.
Lab Grown are also much cheaper than natural, allowing people to be mindful with their budget and sometimes walk away with a larger/higher quality diamond.
They are also very new and exciting to the Jewellery world! The Jewellery industry has been around for a long time. It’s quite rare that something truly new comes around. Even though man-made diamonds have been around decades, we have only recently begun to see them reach a level of quality and size that is comparable with natural diamonds.
At Micheli, we typically work with Natural Diamonds, however we will always present the idea of Lab Grown Diamonds to our clients depending on their vision.
Our goal is to destroy the negative stigma surrounding Lab Grown Diamonds which we intend to do through educating our clients and audience as much as possible.
Lab Grown Diamonds are just as strong, just as beautiful and just as special as Natural Diamonds.
Transparency is at the core of Micheli and always will be.
