Jared lab-created diamonds sparkle with quality radiance that is visibly breathtaking. Like natural diamonds, lab-created diamonds are comprised of carbon and exhibit the same optical, chemical and physical properties  as natural diamonds. The core differences are the time they took to form and their origin. And, whether natural or lab-created, 100% of our diamonds are conflict-free.

SCATTERED LOOSE DIAMONDS

LAB-CREATED DIAMONDS

ALL OF OUR LAB-CREATED DIAMONDS ARE AS-GROWN, MEANING NO POST-GROWTH TREATMENT OR COLOR ENHANCEMENT HAS BEEN PERFORMED ON THEM.

How Are Lab-Created Diamonds Grown? High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) typically yields colorless diamonds. Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) typically yields brown or grey diamonds. HPHT diamonds are created similar to earth-created diamonds and do not need to go through color-enhancement processes in order to resemble earth-created diamonds. CVD diamonds, in most cases, require post-growth treatments to enhance the color from brown or grey to white or colorless, rarely resulting in a stone that resembles an earth-created diamond. Jared adheres to rigid quality control procedures, offering only the finest diamonds. All of our diamonds are guaranteed to be As-Grown with no enhancements.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will a lab-created diamond maintain its value in the future?


A natural diamond has historically maintained its value. However, since lab-created diamonds are relatively new, it is unknown if they will retain their long-term value.

Are lab-created diamonds or natural diamonds higher quality?


Neither is inherently higher quality, as both lab-created and natural diamonds are available in a range of color, cut, clarity, and carat weights.

Is a lab-created diamond better?


Both lab-created diamonds and natural diamonds vary in their diamond grading. Lab-created diamonds allow you to maximize your budget, typically offering more size for the same cost, while natural diamonds are incredible works of nature and the traditional choice.

Will I still receive a laboratory certificate?


Jared’s lab-created diamonds are graded to the same standards as our natural diamonds. That means your lab-created diamond will be accompanied by an independent laboratory report detailing its “4 Cs” - cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.

Are lab-created diamonds the same as natural diamonds?


While lab-created diamonds exhibit the identical optical, chemical, and physical properties as natural diamonds, the core differences between them are their origin and the time they took to form.

Will I still receive my Lifetime Diamond and Color Gemstone Guarantee on lab-created diamond merchandise?


Yes, we provide warranties and service plans for both lab-created and natural diamonds.

Where do lab-created diamonds come from?


Lab-created diamonds are created in a lab using advanced technology. Scientists start with a diamond seed - a small sliver of carbon crystals - then expose it to temperatures and pressures with a carbon coating as it grows to help the diamond crystalize and grow to a larger rough diamond crystal.

Okay, so the untrained eye cannot tell the difference between lab-created diamonds and natural diamonds, what about the trained eye?


Because lab-created diamonds have the same optical, chemical and physical characteristics as natural diamonds, they cannot be distinguished even with a professional loupe under 10x magnification. That’s why Jared’s lab-created diamonds 1/5 carat and larger are laser-inscribed with “lab grown” or "lab-created" on the girdle.

*We’ll replace - at no cost to you - any natural or lab-created diamond covered by this Guarantee if it chips, breaks, or is lost from its original setting during normal wear. For this Guarantee to remain in effect, you must have your natural or lab-created diamond inspected and have the inspection documented every six months by an authorized representative at a Jared store. All necessary repairs must be completed by our representatives. Please see a jewelry specialist for a copy of the warranty or Jared.com/jared-lifetime-diamond-gemstone-guarantee for details.
