Yes! It's a fact that lab created diamonds are real diamonds, identical in every way (but the price!) to earth mined diamonds. Not to be confused with cubic zirconia, moissanite, or a "look-a-like" diamond, lab grown diamonds are 100% pure crystallized carbon. Think of it as making ice in your modern-day freezer versus getting it from a glacier; both are frozen H2O regardless of the origin. We are crystalizing carbon into stunning rough diamonds that are then cut, polished and graded just like earth mined diamonds. Lab created carry the same optical, physical and chemical properties. They have the same refractive index, dispersion, and hardness, and are graded to the same standards as mined diamonds by leading independent gemological institutes including IGI, GIA and GCAL.
