These beautiful solitaire studs feature Lab Grown diamonds, 1 1/2ctw., FG VS2, set in 14 karat white gold. Laboratory grown, or lab-crafted, diamond technology duplicates the naturally-occurring conditions necessary to grow a diamond above the Earth's surface - making it impossible for the human eye to identify the difference between Lab Grown and earth-mined.
What is a Lab Grown diamond? They're identical to mined diamonds sharing the same physical, chemical and optical properties as their natural counterparts. The process that happens deep within Earth's surface is imitated in a lab using a High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) process. What starts out as a diamond seed - a minuscule slice of diamond - blossoms into a large, rough diamond as carbon atoms grow around it.
Well, there is one difference: you get nearly 30% more diamond for your money when purchasing a Lab Grown diamond, making them the real deal in more ways than one.
