Pure Grown Diamonds are identical to mined diamonds sharing the same physical, chemical and optical properties as their natural counterparts. Materials such as Moissanite, Cubic Zirconia (CZ), White Sapphire, YAG, etc. are simulants that simply attempt to “look” like a diamond.
A laboratory grown diamond is man-made but features the same optical and physical properties as a natural diamond including its chemical composition, refractive index and 4C’s. The only difference is its point of origin as one is grown above ground while the other is extracted from the ground.
Pure Grown Diamond technology replicates the conditions necessary to grow a diamond crystal above the Earth’s surface. Grown diamonds are produced by utilizing two gem-quality diamond creation processes: High Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).
In both instances a small diamond seed is placed in a tightly-controlled environment where the rough diamond grows, atom-by-atom, layer-by-layer, recreating the natural process.
Grown diamonds are a responsible choice for environmentally conscious consumers. Those who aspire to make socially responsible purchasing decisions have concerns regarding “conflict” diamonds. Pure Grown Diamonds are fully disclosed as lab-grown with a guaranteed origin.
