Machines are already being used to create artificial diamonds in laboratories. These diamonds are called synthetic diamonds, artificial diamonds, or lab-grown diamonds.
Lab-grown diamonds, as the name suggests, are diamonds that are artificially made in a laboratory using a diamond seed instead of being mined from the earth.
The diamonds are then cut into different diamond styles and shapes. They are then used to make jewelry such as proposal rings, tennis bracelets, and diamond stud earrings, among others.
About seventy percent of millennials are considering buying artificial diamonds over natural ones. Celebrities, in particular, are opting for lab-grown diamond jewelry.
Other celebrities like Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Deepika Padukone, and Emma Watson have been spotted wearing lab created diamond jewelry.
The cost of a lab-grown diamond is forty times less than that of natural diamonds. Thus, they prove cost-effective for all the stakeholders involved, including customers.
Diamond mining, as we know, is disastrous for the environment. Lab-grown diamonds are more eco-friendly to produce than mining natural diamonds.
Natural diamonds require a long time to be extracted from the earth. Moreover, the extraction process is highly difficult and dangerous.
As consumers become more environmentally and socially conscious, the demand for lab-created diamonds is only going to increase further.
