Hamra Jewelers Explains the Difference Between Lab-Created and Synthetic Diamonds


Scottsdale, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/27/2014 --Shopping for diamonds can be tricky. It’s important to know that there is a big difference between lab-created diamonds and synthetic diamonds.

Lab-created diamonds undergo the same process as natural diamonds only it happens in a lab instead of the earth. They aren’t ‘fake’ or ‘imitations’ as some might say. The earth simply doesn’t make enough diamonds to keep up with the demand.

Synthetic diamonds are more commonly known as cubic zirconia, white sapphires or moissanite. It’s quite a stretch to call them diamonds at all. This is why they are cheaper and lack the brilliance of a real diamond. They are completely artificial.

Labeling lab-created diamonds as synthetic leads consumers to believe they are buying a gem that isn’t real. Man-made diamonds are compositionally equal to natural, mined diamonds. They are identical both chemically and physically.
