Why You Should Purchase Lab-Grown Diamonds

When it comes to pieces of jewelry, the use of diamonds takes the spotlight. Furthermore, in recent times, lab-grown diamonds have been widely talked about and used. Instead of having authentic diamonds mined beneath the earth's surface and transformed into marketed products, diamonds can now be produced inside a laboratory using cutting-edge technology. If you are thinking about its value, you have nothing to worry about, as they are authentic diamonds, meaning that they can be such an excellent investment for you.

When shopping around to invest in a lab-grown diamond, whether it's a lab-grown diamond necklace or bracelet, here are three key factors to consider:

The 4Cs

Jewelry aficionados and shoppers know that a diamond's value is measured through the 4C's: carat, cut, clarity, and color. So, when shopping for a piece of diamond jewelry, take note of the following:

  • Carat: This measures the weight of a diamond or gemstone. Most buyers would consider this factor before buying; they will go for 1.0ct over a 0.89ct. In actuality, the visual difference between both is minor, but the price can have a major difference.
  • Cut: This has a high impact on the diamond's appearance and pricing. The cut determines how it interacts with light, producing certain effects, such as brightness, fire, and scintillation. Make sure to choose an ideal or desirable cut that that reflects nearly all lights.
  • Clarity: This refers to the purity or quality of a diamond. The best way to gauge this factor is the number of inclusions or blemishes – from Flawless (FL) or Internally Flawless (IF) to Included (I1, I2, and I3). The more flawless it is, the better and the higher the price will be.
  • Color: This pertains to the transparent color present in the diamond itself. For the most part, the diamonds are nearly colorless with a bit of yellow or brown. The color scale ranges from D, E, F (colorless), G, H, I, J (near colorless), K, L, M (faint color), N-R (very light) to S-Z (light color).

Grading reports

Purchasing a diamond comes with a grading report, which comes from the IGI or GCal to reflect vital information. The diamond is graded according to the 4C's mentioned above, and the report indicates all measurements, proportions, finish, and identifications of the diamond. It also identifies the lab technologies used and the quality of the diamond.

At this point, your purchase decision for a lab-grown diamond all boils down to your tastes and preferences. Of course, it is important to examine the 4C's and take a look at the grading report. Yet, you have to factor in what you hope to achieve. Whether you use this piece of jewelry for special occasions or want to match a certain dress, always consider your personal inkling towards this piece of jewelry.
