LABORATORY GROWN DIAMONDS

An Insiders Guide...



HOW ARE LABORATORY GROWN DIAMONDS MADE?

Laboratory-grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as natural diamonds. They are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using vast amounts of energy and advanced technological processes to duplicate the conditions under which natural diamonds were formed billions of years ago. By subjecting carbon to high pressure and high temperatures, a diamond can be grown over several weeks. 

They are cut and graded in the same way as natural diamonds and are certificated by independent diamond laboratories. In almost every way, they are the same as natural diamonds. 

ARE THEY THE MOST ETHICAL CHOICE?

Laboratory Grown diamonds have been marketed as the most ethical and environmental option because there is no mining involved and they can be traced back to their source. Making it appear there is no negative impact on the environment. When lab-grown diamonds are produced using renewable energy, they produce approximately one-tenth of the CO2 emissions of mined natural diamonds. However, it's important to note that most lab-grown diamonds are currently produced using fossil fuels, resulting in a greater carbon footprint than natural stones. 

'We are committed to integrity in an industry notorious for lack of transparency.We aim to share our love for the materials we use, continue learning and empower our community to make the best consumer decisions possible for people and the planet.'

At E.C.One we only want to work with suppliers that are fully transparent about their manufacturing process. We don't assume lab grown diamonds are the most ethical option because they avoid mining or that they were created using renewable energy unless it is proved. However, we are currently working on guaranteeing that our lab grown diamonds are 100% climate-neutral, and this is backed by third-party certification. We strive to keep our customers informed about the evolving lab-grown diamond market, ensuring transparency and trust in our sourcing practices.
