Exploring Lab Gemstones as A Lab Grown Diamond Alternative

Exploring Lab Grown Diamond Substitutes

There’s a lot of talk going on about lab grown diamonds. They’re stealing the show in every conversation around jewelry. 

 

However, that has also sparked an interesting discussion — whether it’s possible to create lab grown gemstones.

 

And that’s what we explore in this blog — looking at lab grown gemstones and an alternative to lab grown diamonds.

 

Lab grown diamonds and lab grown gemstones: definition

Laboratory diamonds

Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds that are grown in a controlled laboratory environment following technologically advanced processes that replicate the natural processes under the surface of the earth that form diamonds.

Lab grown gemstones

Lab grown gemstones fall into two categories: synthetic and stimulants. Synthetic gemstones are true replicas of natural gemstones, possessing the same inherent qualities. On the other hand, stimulants mimic the appearance of gemstones but are not true synthetics. They are created for aesthetic purposes and are priced even more affordably than their synthetic counterparts.

 

Gemstones and lab grown diamonds: difference

Diamonds

Gemstones

 
  • Lab diamonds are formed from a single element—high-pressure carbon.

 

  • Gemstones are naturally occurring crystals formed from various compounds or elements. They can be composed of a combination of different elements.
  • The formation process of gemstones involves the crystallization of compounds or elements under natural conditions.
  • Lab produced diamonds have a pure carbon structure, arranged in a crystal lattice formation.
  • Gemstones can have diverse chemical compositions, with variations in the types and proportions of elements present.
  • Diamonds are the hardest known natural substance, scoring a 10 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
  • The hardness of lab grown gemstones varies, with different minerals having different levels of hardness on the Mohs scale.
  • Diamonds are often colorless, but they can also come in various colors, including shades of yellow, brown, and rare fancy colors.
  • Gemstones come in a wide range of colors depending on their composition. Some gemstones exhibit a single color, while others may be multicolored.
  • Diamonds typically form under high-pressure conditions deep within the Earth. Lab diamonds are produced under similar conditions in laboratories.
  • Gemstones can form under a variety of geological conditions, and their formation is not limited to specific environments. Lab grown gemstones are produced in laboratories following scientific processes.

 

Ethical and sustainable

Both lab produced diamonds and gemstones are ethical and sustainable options. Consumers are increasingly turning to lab grown gemstones and diamonds as an ethical choice. The process of mining natural gemstones can have environmental and social impacts. Lab grown alternatives, however, provide an eco-friendly option, reducing the environmental footprint associated with traditional mining practices and eliminating concerns related to unethical labor practices.

 

With growing awareness about the ethical concerns of mined diamonds and gemstones, lab diamonds and gemstones are meeting the demands of conscious consumers. Many shoppers are actively seeking alternatives to mined gemstones, and the availability of lab grown options fulfills this desire for a more responsible and sustainable choice.

 

Lab grown gemstones and diamonds: the future

Lab grown gemstones and diamonds are not just a trend; they point to a significant shift in the jewelry industry's landscape. The appeal of these gems extends beyond their ethical and sustainable aspects to their quality, beauty, and accessibility. The future of jewelry may well be shaped by the continued growth and acceptance of lab grown options as a mainstream alternative to mined diamonds and other precious stones.


In conclusion, exploring the best lab grown diamonds and gemstones reveals a dynamic and promising industry that aligns with the values of modern consumers. From affordability and transparency to sustainability and ethical considerations, lab grown gemstones offer a compelling choice for those seeking the best lab diamonds and responsibly sourced jewelry.
