Lab Grown Diamonds
Or CVD ( carbon vapour deposition) lab grown diamonds as the trade would call it. It is the process of recreating exactly what nature takes millions of years to produce, in just a few weeks.
These are not "Fake Diamonds"! Each is a certified diamond by GIA or IGI and is chemically, optically & physically identical to mined diamonds.
Basically scientists have been able to recreate what happens in the atmosphere on Jupiter after discovering that lightning storms in a hydrogen rich atmosphere create small diamond crystals that fall as rain. Yip that's right ,its actually rains diamonds on Jupiter!
The atmosphere is so hot that these little diamonds melt and fall to the surface as diamond rain.This means that in theory there could be a big shimmering diamond sea below those clouds.
It is a fascinating story worthy of a James Bond film, how the jewellery trade and big mining companies scramble to try and keep them off the market. There have been many alternatives to diamonds over the years. This is NOT an alternative, it is 100% diamond!
Today in an ever changing world, we should all be looking at alternatives to help our environment recover form centuries of human greed.
There is no better time to look for an alternative to mined diamonds.
Now due to economies of scale, Lab Grown Diamonds will fall in value over time and should not be considered as an "Investment", as it will in all probability be worth less than you paid for it in a few years.
