The Top 5 Things to Consider When Buying Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds have gained popularity in recent years due to their affordability and ethical production. However, buying lab-grown diamonds requires some considerations to ensure you get a quality product at a reasonable price. In this post, we’ll discuss the top 5 things to consider when buying lab-grown diamonds.


Choosing a Reputable Seller: When buying lab-grown diamonds, it’s crucial to find a reputable seller. The seller should provide certifications that prove the authenticity and quality of the diamonds. Look for certifications on the diamonds, all of our diamonds over 0.40 carats are certified to ensure the colour, clarity, cut and carat weight are exactly what is being advertised. You can also read customer reviews to get an idea of the seller's reputation.



Understanding Diamond Grading Standards: Lab-grown diamonds are graded using the same 4Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat weight) as natural diamonds. It’s important to understand these grading standards to ensure that you get the best value for your money. Ask about 4Cs when looking at buying a diamond or take a look over here.



Deciding on the Best Cut and Carat Size: The cut and carat weight of a diamond play a significant role in its overall appearance and value. When buying lab-grown diamonds, you should choose a cut that complements your style and preference. The most popular diamond cuts include round, princess, emerald, and cushion. The carat weight of a diamond affects its price, and you should consider your budget and personal preference when choosing a carat size.



Checking for Colour Treatments or Clarity Enhancements: Lab-grown diamonds can have inclusions and blemishes, just like natural diamonds. Some sellers may try to enhance the diamond's clarity by filling the inclusions with glass or other materials. It's important to check whether the diamond has undergone any clarity enhancements as they can affect the diamond's value and quality. This is called fracture filled and this will heavy impact the price and purity of the stone. None of the stones that we offer are fracture filled. Colour treated stones how undergone irradiation and heat. This means their color is added artificially. None of our stones are colour treated.



Check the Warranty: When buying lab-grown diamonds, you should compare prices from different sellers to ensure that you get a fair price. It's also important to check the seller's warranty policy to ensure that you can return or exchange the diamond if it doesn't meet your expectations. All of our stones come with a lifetime warranty


In conclusion, ensure the stones are certified and come from a reputable sale. Understand the 4Cs, again you can find it here. Cut is important when considering what style you want to go for, and the carat weight heavy affects the price. Check for colour treatments and clarity enhancements, which none of our stones are. Lastly the warranty on the stone, ours come with a lifetime warranty so you never have to worry about the quality of our diamonds. Looking at buying a diamond? Let us know.
