Why You Should Pop the Question with a Lab Grown Diamond Engagement Ring

Getting engaged is a major milestone in any relationship. Ahead of asking the big question, there are a lot of things that need to be planned before you propose to your partner.

Planning a venue, alongside the date and time can be challenging, not forgetting a beautiful engagement ring. You might decide when researching that you want a more ethical and environmentally friendly alternative to a naturally mined diamond? Our lab diamond engagement rings offer great value, alongside plenty of stunning designs, guaranteed to leave your partner speechless.

We’ve put together the reasons why you should pop the question with a lab grown engagement ring. 

What is a Lab Grown Diamond?

Lab grown diamonds share a lot in common with naturally mined diamonds, but there is a distinct difference between the two in how they are formed.

Natural diamonds are extracted from the earth, while lab grown diamonds are created in a lab, replicating similar conditions to mined diamonds. HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) and CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) are two methods used to create lab grown gems. 

While HPHT has been used since the 1950s to produce lab diamonds, CVD is another method that scientists use to create these ethical stones. Lab diamonds take considerably less time to grow, allowing you to get a stunning-looking diamond for your engagement ring at an affordable price. 

Are Lab Grown Diamonds Real?

Yes, lab grown diamonds are real diamonds, they have the same chemical composition of pure carbon just like their naturally mined counterparts and are identified as diamonds by gemologists.

Couples who want a high-quality, budget friendly option to pop the question can do so by buying a lab grown engagement ring. Planning to go all out with your proposal? You can buy a higher carat lab diamond for your ring that sits proudly on your partner’s finger whilst spending less on a naturally mined diamond equivalent.

As Durable as Naturally Mined Diamonds

Like natural diamonds, lab diamonds are rated 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness. The durability of a lab created diamond means it can withstand everyday wear and tear making it the perfect choice for your engagement ring.

If, over time your lab grown diamond on your engagement ring appears to be losing it’s sparkle, or the diamond is starting to look dull and cloudy, do not fear, this happens with a natural diamond too and it actually a sign that it just needs a good clean as day to day wear and use of soap, moisturiser and anti bacterial solution can coat the diamond making it look foggy.

Ethical and Environmentally Friendly Alternative to Natural Diamonds

Mining natural diamonds will have a more significant impact on the environment compared with Lab grown diamonds, and can affect the natural ecosystems where diamond mining occurs too.

Lab grown diamonds emit significantly less carbon compared to natural diamonds. The natural diamond mining process produces more than 125 pounds of carbon per diamond carat extracted, while a lab grown diamond carat emits approximately six pounds of carbon in comparison.
