Lab Grown Diamond Faqs:

Are lab grown diamonds cheaper than natural diamonds?

Yes, lab grown diamonds are a lot more affordable than natural diamonds!

Can you tell the difference between a lab grown diamond and a natural diamond?

No, Even diamond experts with a 10x magnifying loupe cannot tell the difference.  There are only 3 ways to tell that a diamond has been grown in a lab.  The 1st way is if the diamond has been laser inscribed with a certificate number  or  "lab grown".  The second way is if you have a diamond tester that tests specifically for lab grown diamonds vs. natural diamonds.  A normal diamond tester will test a lab-grown diamond as a normal diamond.  The 3rd and final way to tell the difference is by sending the diamond to a laboratory like GIA or IGI.

How are lab grown diamonds made?

Lab grown diamonds are made just like they sound- they are grown in a lab!  We take a seed of a natural diamond and by using special equipment we actually grow a much larger rough diamond.  Then the rough diamond is sent to our diamond cutters to be cut and polished.

Are lab grown diamonds certified?

Yes, the lab grown diamonds that we offer at Diamond Exchange Houston do come with certificates.  We stock both IGI Certified and GIA Certified lab grown diamonds.  The diamonds we offer are also laser inscribed with the certificate number :).

What Are Lab Grown Diamonds?

lab grown diamond engagement rings
Lab grown diamonds are exactly like the sound- a diamond that is grown in a lab. These man-made diamonds look exactly the same as mined diamonds and have the same chemical makeup as the real thing. Even looking at the diamonds with a loupe or magnifying glass it is nearly impossible to tell the difference.

Lab grown diamonds are actually grown in heated growth chambers that take approximately 30 days to create. Upon completion of the growth process, the diamonds are then cut and polished. These synthetic diamonds even have inclusions (imperfections or flaws) that look exactly like natural inclusions that you see in mined diamonds.

The Pros and Cons of Lab Created Diamonds

lab created diamonds
Are lab grown diamonds right for you? You are going to need to weigh the positives and negatives of a man-made diamond for yourself. The first benefit of a synthetic diamond is that it is less expensive than a natural diamond. You can expect to pay about 30%-50% less for lab created diamond vs. a natural diamond. Another advantage of a lab grown diamond is that you know that somebody didn’t get harmed for the diamond so you can proudly wear your engagement ring guilt-free. Lastly, a lab created diamond is still a real diamond and people will not be able to tell unless you inform them.

The cons of a lab grown diamond is that is by no means an investment. If you ever go to try to sell a man made diamond you will discover that there is not a strong second hand market for them. Some diamond dealers do not buy lab grown diamonds. Diamond Exchange Houston does purchase lab grown diamonds as well as offer our jewelry consignment program should you ever need to sell/liquidate.

Natural diamonds, on the other hand, are easily sellable and can increase in value with time. Another con of a lab created diamond is the way it could make you feel. You could possibly feel as though you are wearing something that is not the real thing. Almost like having a fake Gucci purse. This is a personal preference and everybody is different so if it does not bother you then go for it.

I found amazing deals on engagement rings when I found Diamond Exchange Houston. Me and my now fiancé had searched at normal name brand jewelry stores before we found Diamond Exchange Houston. We were actually referred to them by a friend who had a custom engagement ring made there. Their diamond rings are like half as expensive as the other jewelry stores we shopped at. We were able to pick out the main diamond and have it placed in a ring they had we liked. They had it ready for us within a week. It also came with an GIA appraisal which we used to get insurance. 5 stars and we will be back for our wedding bands!

My mom bought her ring with Diamond Exchange many years ago and now I too am a client! I worked with Gili! He was professional during the process when I contacted him regarding my quest to find the prefect diamond ring. I was going to purchase online for competitive pricing, however, Gili took the time to explain the importance of seeing a diamond in person to make sure the ‘eye clean’ factor was there. Then the journey began with my customize band. I found pictures with precise features I desired. Gili delivered exactly what I wanted. I am meticulous and expected the best. Gili provided me the exact ring I wanted. He constantly kept me updated through the entire process. I have found an exceptional jeweler to work to make more custom pieces. I highly recommend Gili to anyone that is ready to purchase customized jewelry. Also his coworker Nic shares an office with him and is also a resource to contact! Either of them will assist you with comparing, finding, and providing you with the exact piece of jewelry your heart desires! Thank you Gili for proving me with a breath taking ring!

I would like to thank Nick for creating my dream ring. He took the time to send pictures during the design process and then again while creating the ring to ensure we were happy with the final product. This was a wonderful experience and the ring is gorgeous!

I went to Diamond Exchange Houston in search of a wedding band that would compliment a custom wedding ring I had made for Fiance. Diamond Exchange Houston did not disappoint. They were very accommodating and had multiple options to choose from. They were able to take our ideas and craft us the perfect wedding band to go with my Fiance's ring. The staff is very friendly and gave me updates on the band throughout the process. Their prices are very reasonable and quite frankly are beat all of the surrounding jewelers' prices.If you're in the Houston area and are looking for custom work or Jewelers I would highly recommend Diamond Exchange Houston.(P.S. I typically don't write reviews, but their work was amazing and I had to share!)
