Jared lab-created diamonds sparkle with quality radiance that is visibly breathtaking. Lab-created diamonds have the same optical, chemical and physical properties as natural diamonds. However, because lab-created diamonds can be produced in abundance, they are less expensive and make larger size diamonds more affordable. Their relative abundance may not ensure that the value will hold over time. 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.

Lab-Created Diamonds

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
 

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.
 

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.
 

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

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.
 

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.
 

Lab-created diamonds have the same optical, chemical and physical properties as natural diamonds. However, because lab-created diamonds can be produced in abundance, they are less expensive and make larger size diamonds more affordable. Their relative abundance may not ensure that the value will hold over time.
