Lab Grown Diamonds in Eastvale

Lab-grown diamonds, also known as synthetic diamonds, are man-made diamonds that are created in a laboratory setting, but are considered real diamonds by experts. They have the same physical properties, optical properties, and chemical properties as natural diamonds, but are created in a controlled environment rather than being mined from the earth.
Lab-created diamonds are becoming increasingly popular due to their ethical and environmental benefits, as well as their cost savings compared to traditional diamonds. In this article, we will explore the rising popularity of lab-grown diamonds in Eastvale and the benefits they offer. Here at Diamond & Design Jewelers, we offer a wide range of lab diamonds, including in our beautiful engagement rings and diamond studs.

Comparison between Lab-Grown and Natural Diamonds

There are several key differences between lab diamonds and natural diamonds that make lab-created diamonds a popular choice for many consumers. Here at Diamond & Design Jewelers, we are committed to providing everything you want when you choose from our collection of brilliant diamonds.

Ethical Concerns

One of the main concerns that traditional diamonds pose is the issue of ethical sourcing. Natural diamonds are often mined in countries with poor labor laws and human rights records, leading to concerns about the treatment of workers and the potential for conflict diamonds (aka blood diamonds).
Synthetic diamonds, on the other hand, are created in a safe and controlled environment and, therefore, do not have the same ethical concerns, nor do they require the resources or manpower that mining diamonds require. They are a more ethical choice for those who want to ensure their diamond purchase does not contribute to any human rights violations and are an excellent choice for a wide range of diamond jewelry, including for those who love colored diamonds.

Environmental Impact

The process of mining natural diamonds can have a significant impact on the environment, including deforestation, soil erosion, and water pollution. The use of heavy machinery and explosives can also cause air, soil and water pollution.
In contrast, lab-created diamonds have a much smaller environmental footprint as they are created in a laboratory setting. That means that you can wear the diamond of your dreams, while also taking care of the environment and taking measures to support sustainability and protecting the plants and animals that live in the area where diamonds are mined.


Lab-grown loose diamonds are typically 30-40% less expensive than natural diamonds, making them a more affordable option for those looking for high-quality perfect diamonds. This cost saving is because lab-grown diamonds do not require the same mining and transportation costs as natural diamonds. It also doesn't take as long to form a lab diamond, which helps keep the cost more affordable.

Brief Overview of Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab diamonds are created using advanced technology that replicates the natural process of diamond formation, but much more quickly. There are two methods by which this is done, high temperature, high pressure, (HTHP) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD).
In CVD, a small diamond crystal, known as a diamond seed is placed in a chamber that is filled with carbon-rich gases. These gases are heated to extreme temperatures and the carbon atoms attach to the diamond seed, gradually building up layers and creating a larger diamond that can be used for a wide range of purposes, including engagement and wedding rings, stud earrings and pendant necklaces.
During HTHP, a diamond seed is exposed to carbon material that is subjected to extreme pressure and temperature. The heat and pressure mimic the conditions that create natural diamonds in nature. Sometimes, a diamond created using CVD is also exposed to HTHP to create the precise gem-quality diamond you desire.
The process can take anywhere from 6-10 weeks, depending on the size and quality of the diamond being created. Once the diamond is formed, it is cut and polished just like a natural diamond, resulting in a high-quality, conflict-free diamond. Professional gemologists classify lab-created diamonds as real diamonds and grading reports are issued based on the same criteria as a mined diamond. Keep in mind that a lab diamond is not the same thing as a diamond simulant, such as cubic zirconia, moissanite and silicon carbide.

Comparison with Traditional Diamond Stores

Local jewelers in Eastvale, such as Diamond & Design Jewelers, are now offering lab-grown loose diamonds as an alternative to traditional diamonds. This shift is due to the increasing demand for ethical and environmentally friendly options from consumers. That means you have more options when choosing your diamonds and can find those that align with your desires and your values at the same time.

Benefits of Lab-Grown Diamonds

There are several benefits to choosing synthetic diamonds over their natural counterparts, including:

  • Ethical sourcing: As mentioned earlier, lab-grown diamonds do not have the same ethical concerns as natural diamonds, offering peace of mind for consumers who want to protect the world and its people.
  • Environmental impact: Lab-grown diamonds have a much smaller environmental footprint compared to natural diamonds, making them a more sustainable choice that aims to protect the flora and fauna, as well as humans.
  • Cost savings: Lab-grown diamonds are typically 30-40% less expensive than natural diamonds, which translates to savings for consumers. 
  • Quality and beauty: Lab-grown diamonds from Diamond & Design Jewelers have the same physical properties, as well as chemical, and optical properties as natural diamonds, resulting in a high-quality and perfect diamond that glitters and gleams on any piece of jewelry. They are graded using the 4Cs of diamond cut, color grade, clarity grade and carat weight.
