Do we care about what other people publish? Of course we do.

There isn’t a week that goes by where I read some piece in the world news about gems that is so poorly written that it makes the gemologist in me want to scream, and the journalist in me want to start editing.

Case in point, “A complete guide to Lab Grown Diamonds,” posted in the online magazine, The Express Wire.

A Complete Guide to Lab Grown Diamonds

The Express Wire
Published January 2, 2023

In the event that you are looking for a gemstone, do your due diligence and check if lab-grown jewelry is a good decision for you. [Jewelry is not lab-grown. Gemstones are. Maybe consumers do talk like this.]

Diamond is the most preferred jewellery of a young woman. [Just another quick journalistic edit – Diamond is not jewelry. Diamond is the gem. Diamond jewelry is jewelry set with diamond. So “diamond jewelry is the most preferred by young women.”]

However, they are not quite right for your budget. [Well this is just not correct. There’s a piece of natural diamond-set jewelry for any budget. But if they are trying to say that jewelry set with lab-grown/factory-grown diamond is less expensive, well then they are right.]

Assuming you’re busy planning your wedding, you’ve probably come across lab-grown in the UK and noticed that they’re impressively affordable.

You may hesitate to buy Lab Grown Diamonds , feeling that its low sticker price is due to second-rate quality. However, this is not the situation. Lab-created is indistinguishable from regular jewelry and comes in a variety of tones, carat weights, and shapes. [Regular jewelry? Lab-grown/factory-grown diamonds are indistinguishable by most because they are the real thing. They are diamond. And they are less expensive because they are less expensive to produce than a natural diamond.]

These are a great choice if you need more at a lower sticker price. [Finally, a sentence I can agree on. All things being equal, a lab-grown/factory-grown diamond will be less expensive than a natural grown diamond.]

What are lab grown diamonds:

Lab Grown Diamonds, otherwise known as finished, [“finished’ typically refers to a piece of jewelry that is complete, set with gems, as in a “finished piece of jewelry.” It can be used with loose diamonds and other gems to mean that they are completely polished and ready to be set into jewelry. It has absolutely nothing to do with lab or natural grown.] as it is term for have the same substance and true composition as their normal counterparts and are visually indistinguishable. [The gemological term is “synthetic.” This means the lab-grown/factory-grown diamond is exactly the same as natural diamond, other than it was made by humans instead of Mother Nature. In Gemology, “synthetic” does NOT mean fake.]

The main real difference between lab and ordinary jewelry is the interaction used to create them. [As we stated above, lab vs natural – not ordinary.]

The composition common in the Earth’s mantle is formed when the perfect ratio of intensity and stress is combined and carbon atoms are bonded together. [This should be written as heat and pressure.]

These are limited in quantity and their outstanding quality and hardness make them the most precious stones on the planet.

Lab-grown, as the name suggests, are man-made in a research facility using a high-level mechanical cycle that mimics the regular way gems are formed. [These “research facilities’ are factories, using high temperature high pressure presses to recreate how mother nature makes diamond, OR by using microwave technology to separate carbon from a methane cloud – definitely not how Mother Nature has ever made a diamond on earth.]

With the innovation used to create, it is currently fundamentally difficult to distinguish lab-made jewelry from mine. An economical way for people to continue to participate in this beautiful stone.

Why everybody chooses These diamonds:


Lab-cut jewelry [Lab-grown/factory-grown diamond set jewelry. Nothing is “Lab-cut.”] is becoming more popular, but you may ask why people would choose a lab-cut stone over a specialty one. [The term is Lab-grown/factory-grown, or lab-created.]

There are heaps of motivations behind why people rush towards lab-made jewelry which is as follows: [Jewelry is not Lab-made.]

Maximum People Prefer Lab Grown Diamonds:

Some people do not spend a lot of money on diamond jewelry, while some people prefer diamond jewelry that is more expensive than they can afford. [And some people buy jewelry they prefer and can afford.]

A lab-made gem can depend on half the cost of a characteristic gemstone of the same size. [Lab-grown/factory-grown diamonds are certainly less expensive than natural diamonds, all other things being equal.]

For some people, the sticker price is the main reason they choose lab-made jewelry. With lab-grown, you can get a bigger, better piece of jewelry for less. [Jewelry is not better or worse, based upon lab or natural grown diamond.]  

Lab Grown Diamonds Are The Real Thing:

There are many reasonably priced diamonds that individuals choose for their weddings or other jewelry. Some are like great jewelry, however, you will have the option to constantly differentiate. If you don’t mind having a different jewelry option, or you’re leaning toward a particular diamond for a more one-of-a-kind look, a jewelry option may be best for you. In any case, with lab-grown, you get a real gem at a lower price. No one will at any point be aware of whether it is normal [natural] or a laboratory gem because they are indistinguishable.

Both Are Diamond Sustainable and Ethical:

Diamond mining has a background marked by dishonesty and climate insecurity. From the unfortunate working conditions and use of youth labour to the profits from gem mines being used to finance wars in Africa, precious diamond mining is fraught with humanitarian and ethical issues. Similarly, mining has a huge impact on the climate because it requires a large number of pounds of soil to find just one diamond. It affects the habitats of animals and plants and causes severe damage to biological systems.

While purchasing mined jewelry, it is really difficult to ensure that it is ethically sourced. This problem does not exist in the lab. You know exactly where a lab-grown precious diamond comes from, and that its creation has little impact on the climate. [These talking points of the lab-grown/factory-grown diamond industry have yet to be proven, and may vary depending on the manufacturer. Just as not all diamonds mined finance wars, or come from mines having poor working conditions, etc., factory-grown diamonds have yet to show how they reduce their impact on the environment, etc.].

Lab-made jewelry is also reasonable because it can be delivered continuously while stockpiling of earth’s precious stones is restricted.

Lab Grown Diamond Made the Best Quality:

Lab-created gemstone jewelry tends to cause less damage than regular diamonds allowing for greater growth. That means you’ll get a clearer, more brilliant diamond. [No, it does not.]

With these benefits, it’s reasonable why lab-grown diamonds are a popular choice. Whether you’re naturally savvy or you’re on a tight budget, lab-made jewelry is a great decision. Although they do not have the value of a characteristic jewel, which can be exchanged and even extended in esteem over the long term, Lab Grown Diamonds have the same creativity and magnificence as regulars. [Poorly written, but overall, yes.]

Share the Picking out the ideal jewelry, especially for a wedding, is exciting, yet that doesn’t mean you need to throw your spending plan out the window. With lab-grown, you can have the best of everything. A true jewel ring in the size of your choice at a reasonable price. Lab ornaments contain a comparable cycle to that found in nature. Many people choose to buy lab-made jewelry for ethical, natural, or financial reasons rather than a specialty. In the event that you are looking for a gemstone, do your due diligence and check if lab-grown jewelry is a good decision for you.

[We know there’s a lot of concern about “greenwashing,” so pay attention to everything you hear and read.
Greenwashing: unsubstantiated claim to deceive consumers into believing that a company’s products are environmentally friendly or have a greater positive environmental impact than they actually do.”
We will be having discussions of ethics, the environment, responsible business practices, etc… over the next several months.
Remember, gems are not “ethical” or “unethical.” People are.]
