What Are Lab Grown Diamond Studs?
Lab-grown diamond studs are prized for their stunning sparkle, exceptional quality and minimal environmental impact. For people shopping for more affordable, eco-friendly alternatives to mined diamonds, lab-grown gemstones are a great option.
Grown in dedicated facilities using highly specialized technology, lab-grown diamonds are created using responsibly sourced raw materials and incredibly high heat and pressure. While the creation process is scientifically complex, the final results are breathtakingly simple and stunning. Lab-grown diamonds are the exact same as naturally mined diamonds, optically and chemically with the same beautiful physical properties.
One of the big advantages of lab-grown diamond stud earrings is that, to the naked eye, their gemstones are indistinguishable from naturally mined diamonds. Even the most skilled, experienced gemologist cannot identify lab-grown diamond gems because they are identical to mined diamonds, both chemically and optically.
Held to the same standards as natural diamonds, lab-grown diamond gems are rated based on the 'Four Cs' (cut, color, clarity, and carat weight). Just like mined diamonds, they must be cut and polished by master cutters to create beautifully faceted gems.
The only real difference between mined diamonds and lab-grown diamonds is that the latter includes microscopic inscriptions. Without special equipment, however, it’s simply not possible to distinguish lab-grown earrings from studs made with traditionally mined gems.
Why Buy Lab Grown Diamonds?
When it comes to purchasing mined diamonds for their jewelry, not all jewelers maintain John Atencio’s unwavering adherence to strict ethical and social standards. While John adheres to the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS), a global effort aimed at stopping the trade of "conflict diamonds,” many jewelers are less picky about their diamond suppliers.
Sadly, mined diamonds are often used to finance wars and illegal activities, They are also associated with human rights issues and environmental concerns. Since lab-grown diamonds are created in a controlled environment, these concerning ethical issues do not exist. Lab diamonds also usually cost about 30% less than mined diamonds of comparable size and quality.
Buying lab-grown diamond stud earrings eliminates any concerns over the human toll and environmental impact of mining diamonds. Simply put, John Atencio’s lab-grown diamond studs are the current standard of environmental stewardship and responsible ethics in the diamond trade. John's lab-grown diamonds are also just as stunning as the very finest naturally mined diamonds, differentiated only by origin.
If you're looking for a beautiful, eco-friendly alternative to traditionally mined diamond jewelry, John Atencio’s lab-grown diamond stud earrings are the ideal choice. And when you pair them with one of John’s artfully crafted diamond rings, bracelets or necklaces, it results in a stunning artistic expression of beauty and luxury unlike anything else.
