After Midnight Jewelers is proud to say we use beautiful lab grown diamonds throughout our jewelry pieces. With so many options, styles, materials, and gemstones available on the market, it can be hard for anybody to navigate the shopping experience. While trends always have an impact on shopping habits, most consumers are hesitant to make large purchases based on what might be a fad or temporary trend. When it comes to lab grown diamonds, the fad just might be here to stay, and for good reason! Lab grown diamonds are made under the specific conditions of a laboratory, instead of mining from deep below the earth. The technology has progressed so much that it is now virtually impossible to differentiate between a natural and manmade diamond. As a result, many people now prefer these for jewelry, and the demand for lab created diamond rings has gone up.
Here are a few reasons why we at After Midnight Jewelers choose lab grown diamonds over natural diamonds:
- They Are Less Expensive
Unlike natural diamonds, the manufacturing process of lab grown diamonds does not take several years, which is why they are much less expensive. They typically retail for 50% less than mined or natural diamonds, and given the quality of the stones, they make a great bargain.
- They Look the Same
Many people are unaware that natural and lab grown diamonds are impossible to distinguish. Even highly trained gemologists cannot tell the difference between the two without rigorous testing as they both have the same molecular structure.
- They Are Better for the Environment
If you do a bit of research, you will find out that diamond mining can cause considerable damage to the environment. Whereas lab grown diamonds are made using a small number of resources and are produced in laboratories with little to no environmental impact.
- They Go with Everything
No matter what look you want to achieve, lab grown diamond jewelry goes with everything. These diamonds are perfect for everyday use; they reflect your individuality and allow you to express yourself, regardless of what you do. Additionally, they are easy to clean and exceptionally durable. You can complete any jewelry look with a brilliantly sparkling diamond.
- They are Conflict-Free
People are often concerned about the ways natural diamonds are mined. There is an ever-growing dilemma about the humanitarian and environmental repercussions of natural diamond mining processes. With more people asking the question, jewelers have to declare that their natural diamonds are ethically mined. Lab grown diamonds are less controversial and are produced by skilled and qualified professionals, leaving no question about their origin.
Diamonds are timeless stones that will continue to dominate the jewelry world for years to come. They are beautiful and make a statement. In these modern times, we believe it is important to choose a more efficient, sustainable, and ethical way to source these precious stones. Our highly valued customers agree.
