LAB GROWN DIAMONDS : an alternative to natural diamonds
Unlike natural diamonds created within the earth millions of years ago, lab grown diamonds, also know as lab created diamonds or man-made diamonds, are grown using high technology equipment under high temperature and high pressure.
Just like natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are classified according to the same criterias using grade of color, cut, clarity and carats.
