Engagement rings have always been viewed as an expense that should never be spared but there are a variety of options available for those who are more budget conscious. Lab diamond engagement rings are the perfect alternative for those seeking a more affordable and ethical option. When opting for a lab diamond ring it means that dreaming big can be a reality. The lab-grown jewellery experts at Lily Arkwright have collaborated with us today to provide their professional guidance in the form of an easy guide into the world of lab grown engagement rings.
Lab grown diamonds are 100% real diamonds! They share the same chemical composition, aesthetic properties and hardness as mined diamonds. The difference compared to a mined diamond is the amazing price-point and their origins. A lab-grown diamond is grown in controlled conditions in a lab, using advanced technology that replicates the natural growing process of a naturally mined diamond. The process can take less than a month to complete after the initial growing process and after this, similar to natural diamonds, meticulous cutting and polishing takes place to achieve that quintessential sparkle.
Lab grown diamonds are made up of carbon atoms, arranged in the same diamond crystal structures as natural diamonds, therefore, performing and exhibiting the same sparkle and brilliance you expect from mined diamonds. Meaning the difference between lab-diamonds and mined diamonds are indistinguishable to the naked eye. Every lab diamond ring at Lily Arkwright is fully certified and accompanied by an industry standard GIA, IGI or GCAL grading report, including the cut, colour, clarity and carat weight specifications. All Lily Arkwright rings also come with a 30 day returns policy, have 12 months warranty, and have free global shipping that’s fully insured.
One of the most significant differences when considering lab grown and mined diamonds is the price difference between the two. The price difference will vary depending on the quality and the size of the quality of the stone but generally, lab grown diamonds cost around 30% less than their mined counterparts. This is due to a smaller production chain, when growing diamonds in a lab there are less people involved in the production process. Making lab-grown diamond rings perfect for someone who’d love a bigger stone for a more affordable price point, meaning you can spend on other things in future. The social and environmental credentials on lab-grown gems are particularly noteworthy too!
