Just like diamonds mined from the Earth, lab-grown diamonds, according to the Federal Trade Commission, are exactly the same as mined diamonds chemically, physically and optically. The main difference is that one is grown in a lab, the other is extracted from the ground. Other than that, they are twins!
An added bonus is that lab-grown diamonds use less natural resources to create, so they are very eco friendly. Because of how they are made and more importantly, how they are obtained, lab-grown diamonds generally cost 30-50% less than mined diamonds. Beauty, durability, and affordability made lab-grown diamonds a great choice for engagement rings and other bridal jewelry!
