FAQs

LAB DIAMONDS

WHAT ARE THE 4Cs

The 4Cs refer to the four essential characteristics and are the globally accepted standards used to assess the quality and the value of diamonds:

  1. Carat Weight: Refers to the diamond's size, measured in carats.
  2. Cut: Relates to the diamond's proportions, symmetry, and polish, influencing its brilliance and overall appearance.
  3. Color: Indicates the lack of color in a diamond, with a scale from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow or brown).
  4. Clarity: Refers to the presence of internal and external flaws or inclusions in the diamond. The clarity scale ranges from Flawless (no imperfections visible under magnification) to Included (imperfections visible to the naked eye).

IS DIAMOND CLARITY IMPORTANT?

A diamond with a higher clarity grade signifies fewer inclusions or blemishes, thereby increasing its value compared to one with a lower grade.

WHAT IS THE HIGHEST DIAMOND CLARITY?

Diamond clarity refers to the purity of the gemstone, determined by the visibility of two types of features: inclusions and blemishes. To evaluate clarity, the diamond undergoes examination under 10x magnification. The quantity, type, size, and placement of both internal (inclusions) and external (blemishes) characteristics dictate the grading. Gemologists assign clarity grades ranging from Internally Flawless (IF), denoting the highest quality, to Included (I3).

DO LAB DIAMONDS TEST AS NATURAL

Indeed, lab-created diamonds will yield positive results when tested with a diamond tester. Despite being cultivated by scientists in a laboratory rather than formed within the Earth's crust, lab diamonds are unquestionably genuine diamonds. They possess identical chemical and optical characteristics as natural diamonds. Even experienced gemologists are unable to differentiate between the two with the unaided eye.

ARE YOUR DIAMONDS CERTIFIED

Quality is of paramount importance. You can have confidence in the exceptional quality of our lab-grown diamonds because we prioritize GIA & IGI certified center stones, a globally recognized authority in diamond grading.

CVD vs HPHT METHOD

CVD involves using gas to deposit carbon atoms onto a substrate, forming a diamond over time. It's a lower pressure and temperature process compared to HPHT.

HPHT involves subjecting carbon to high pressure and high temperature, mimicking the conditions under which natural diamonds are formed in the Earth's mantle.

In summary, CVD grows diamonds through gas deposition at lower pressure and temperature, while HPHT simulates the natural diamond formation process at high pressure and high temperature.

SO ALL DIAMONDS HAVE INCLUSIONS?

Yes, the majority of diamonds, whether mined or laboratory-grown, contain inclusions. Metallic inclusions can also be present in laboratory-grown diamonds. If a professional identifies a hint of metal in a diamond, they may conclude it is laboratory-grown. Although laboratory-grown diamonds with imperfections are possible, Lovemade Diamonds utilizes high-quality laboratory-grown diamonds endorsed by the International Gemological Institute (IGI) based on the 4Cs. This meticulous process ensures that only the highest caliber diamonds are included in Lovemade Diamonds collections.

DO LAB DIAMONDS LOSE CLARITY?

Laboratory-grown diamonds do not develop cloudiness over time. They maintain 100% identical physical and chemical properties to natural diamonds and should not deteriorate or alter in appearance over time. In instances where low-quality diamond seeds are utilized, certain laboratory-grown diamonds may exhibit noticeable flaws, such as color tints caused by impurities in the diamond or imperfections in the crystal structure. However, the laboratory-grown diamonds utilized in Lovemade Diamonds jewelry adhere to exceptionally high-quality standards and do not possess unnatural or problematic characteristics.
