Read on to discover the world of lab grown diamonds and why celebrities such as Emma Watson, Lady Gaga, Penelope Cruz among others are already wearing lab grown diamond on the red carpet.
Let me introduce to you, the diamond of the future.
The Future is Bright
It makes me proud and happy to be able to transition into becoming a jewelry designer, bringing the next generation of diamonds to the world with my own brand: Analucia Beltran Diamonds.
My mission and motivation is to praise all women who work hard every day in their lives (from the housewives to the lawyers, mothers, doctors, teachers, single moms, daughters, sisters, etc.) and make possible for them to own a real diamond with ethical luxury, exceptional quality at a price accessible for everyone. I cannot wait to share with you my first collections on November 3rd.
Using lab grown diamonds, the next generation of diamonds in the world, we are able to provide you the exact same quality as a mined diamond at an irresistible price tag.
Nature Meets Technology
Thanks to the power of technology, we don’t have to wait a billion years anymore to have precious diamonds.
The natural formation of mined diamonds requires very high temperatures and pressures, taking billions of years to be formed. Click here to watch how mined diamonds are naturally formed.
Lab Grown Diamonds, on the other hand, use CVD (Chemical vapor deposition) and HPHT (high-pressure high-temperature) processes that recreate the temperature (800 to 1050 degrees Celsius or 3700 Fahrenheit) and pressure (70,000 atmospheres equivalent to 7.3 million kilograms or 22,300 000 million pounds) needed to produce a mined diamond.
What usually took 2 billion years is now achieved in a laboratory in a matter of 6 to 10 weeks. To watch this fascinating process, click here.
High Value, The Next Big Thing
When it comes to comparing the value or cost of a Lab Grown diamond versus a mined diamond, there are differences to get excited about.
Let's keep in mind that mined diamonds as well as Lab Grown are both graded and priced based on the 4 Cs: cut, color, clarity, and carat. The difference is that Lab Grown Diamonds are priced 30 to 40 percent less than the mined diamonds, despite of having the exact same size and quality. This only means that you can get a bigger and better diamond at a very reasonable price. To watch the world's biggest lab gown diamond click here.
Nowadays, more than ever before, we are more conscious and aware of the importance of preserving our planet. It is the only home we have and therefore, preserving our natural resources is extremely important and our responsibility.
Lab Grown Diamonds are much less environmentally impactful by having them conceived in a laboratory contrary to mined diamonds, which extraction is a fossil-fuel-intensive process that can damage the environment. You can be sure these precious diamonds are not only Eco friendly and conflict free, but also some brands are even donating part of their profits, helping amazing causes. Click here to see.
