We’re all in agreement that there is no alternative to diamonds - there’s a reason why these stunning stones have become a symbol of love and devotion worldwide. For many years, we could only choose from diamonds mined from the earth. Now there is an environmentally friendly, socially responsible choice that’s every bit as beautiful as traditionally mined diamonds: Lab Grown Diamonds. The best part – they’re available right here at Cottage Hill Diamonds.
What are Lab Grown Diamonds?
Simply speaking, lab grown diamonds are diamonds grown above ground in a lab, rather than growing them below ground like mined diamonds. Unlike diamond simulants such as Cubic Zirconia (CZ), Moissanite, and White Sapphire, lab grown diamonds are chemically and physically identical to traditional diamonds, thus retaining the sparkle and fire that makes diamonds the first-class gemstone we know and love. Additionally, we still hand pick our lab grown diamonds and they still go through the same cutting process as mined diamonds, ensuring that you’ll have diamonds with ideal colors, cuts, and clarities at your fingertips.
Why Choose Lab Grown Diamonds?
Not only are lab grown diamonds physically, optically, and chemically identical to traditionally grown diamonds, their production has a minimal carbon footprint and they are completely conflict-free – two of the greatest reservations customers have when considering traditional diamonds. As an added bonus, lab grown diamonds are typically less expensive than their traditional counterparts, with customers enjoying between a 10-20% cost savings.
