A Growing Trend: Lab Diamonds

Each year google searches for Lab Diamonds grows double digits proving this chic, eco-friendly & affordable trend is here to stay! SKN is all about sustainable, affordable luxury so offering this diamond alternative is no brainer for us!

Lab diamonds, also known as synthetic or cultured diamonds, are a cutting-edge and sustainable alternative to traditional mined diamonds. These diamonds are created in a controlled laboratory environment that replicates the extreme pressure and temperature conditions required for natural diamond formation. They look exactly like earth diamonds to the naked eye.

Here are some key aspects of lab diamonds:

Ethical Sourcing:
Lab diamonds are an ethical choice as they are conflict-free and are produced without contributing to environmental issues.
*SKN's natural diamonds are all also conflict free and ethically sourced. 

Environmental Impact:
The production of lab diamonds has a significantly lower environmental impact compared to traditional diamond mining. It reduces the need for large-scale excavation and minimizes the ecological footprint associated with the extraction process.

Quality and Purity:
Lab diamonds exhibit the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as natural diamonds. They are graded using the same criteria – the four Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat) – ensuring high-quality gems with exceptional clarity and brilliance.

Lab diamonds typically offer a more cost-effective option compared to natural diamonds of similar quality. This affordability allows consumers to invest in larger or higher-quality diamonds within their budget.

Innovation and Technology:
The creation of lab diamonds involves advanced technological processes, such as High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). This innovative approach allows for precision in diamond production and the ability to create unique, customized pieces.

Variety and Customization:
Lab diamonds offer a wide range of options in terms of shapes, sizes, and colors. From classic round brilliants to fancy colored diamonds, the variety available allows for customization and personalization according to individual preferences.

As technology continues to advance, lab diamonds are gaining popularity as a responsible and brilliant choice for those seeking exquisite gems without compromising on ethics or environmental impact.
