What Are Cultured Diamonds?
cultured diamonds, are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes that duplicate the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the Earth’s crust. These diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since they are made of the same material as natural diamonds, they exhibit the same optical and chemical properties.
They are considered a genuine diamond and are graded and traded as such. In 2018, the FTC ruled that, for all intents and purposes, CVD diamonds and earth mines diamonds are the same thing: 100% a diamond!
What Are CVD Diamonds?
Simply put, some diamonds come from below ground and some come from above ground CVD diamonds are man-made diamonds. Unlike earth mined diamonds which take billions of years to form deep beneath the Earth’s surface, CVD diamonds are grown in labs. Specifically, CVD diamonds rely on a special process called Chemical Vapor Deposition (or CVD).
Are CVD Diamonds Real Diamonds?
Everything, from their internal atomic structure to the way they glitter on your finger, CVD diamonds are identical to the mined diamonds that have to be excavated from the ground. CVD diamonds look exactly like so-called “natural” diamonds. In fact, even a trained jeweler cannot identify the difference. And this isn’t just the opinion of diamond manufacturers, either; in 2018, the FTC ruled that, for all intents and purposes, CVD diamonds and natural diamonds are the same thing: 100% a diamond!
