Points To Know Before Buying Lab Grown Diamond Engagement Rings In Singapore
Have you ever noticed that most of jewelry stores insist on purchasing lab-grown diamond jewelry? The reasons are many but before divulging them, let's understand their real meaning. As per sources, natural or mined diamonds formed approximately 1 to 3 billion years ago. The formation of the stone is one process, which takes millions of years and is held 100 miles beneath the Earth's surface.
Presently, due to advancements in technology, scientists can replicate the same process for manufacturing artificial diamonds. These two processes are High-Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). You can nowadays buy man-made diamonds in Singapore from reliable vendors.
Both these processes aim at growing stones in specific laboratory settings and are hence known as lab-grown or man-made diamonds. Once they are created, they undergo the same certification and grading process as natural stones.
During this process, carbon dioxide is squeezed into diamond forms when being exposed to extreme heat conditions. And these gemstones migrate to the Earth's surfaces when an eruption of a volcano takes place. The stones obtained from such a process are known as natural or mined diamonds.
You might feel that lab-grown stones do not look as beautiful as mined ones. But it is not true. The former stones are as beautiful as the natural ones and one cannot differentiate between the two from his naked eye.
Both kinds of stones have similar chemical, optical and physical properties. Moreover, just like natural ones, even artificially made diamonds are graded based on the 4 C's- cut, color, clarity, and carat.
