Yes, lab diamonds are real diamonds and they test as having the same chemical structure as a natural diamond. I’ve read that even diamond specialists have a difficult time telling the two apart. The engagement ring my fiancé bought me is a lab diamond. They are more affordable and are conflict free which was important to me. Pics of my ring are below if you’re interested.

We thought of doing the lab diamond route and ended up

decided to go the pre loved route.

I personally think reusing what is already existing is more to my liking but thats just me I just wanted to give you another avenue to think about..

here is my set

excuse the deck we purchased a house and are in the midst of a complete renovation 🙂

Lab diamonds are identical to mined diamonds. They test as diamonds, and are as hard as a diamond, they ARE a diamond. They were just born in a lab instead of the earths crust. They are a little cheaper than natural diamonds but ever bit is beautiful. It’s all about personal preference and where you want the origin of your stone to be from. I am currently having my ring built but here are some pictures of my stone and the setting. 

Again they are diamonds. They just have a different birth origin. I chose the lab over natural because I wanted conflict free and eco friendly.

madamepancake :  Yes lab diamonds are exactly the same as mined diamonds, except obviously formed in a lab.

I would have loved a lab diamond as I wanted something highly ethical, as I love the idea of it being cruelty free! but unfortunately some people like my partner felt that there is something romantic about a mined diamond taking billions of years to form, so we ended up getting a canadian diamond as they are more not commonly known to be blood diamonds.

If you are interested in lab diamonds, I would definitely go for it! The price difference is also a good bonus too

My center is a lab diamond! They are diamonds through and through. Chemically they are exactly the same, just made in labs instead of dug up! I’ve had many jewelers inspect my stone and none knew it was lab without me saying it, there is no indication it’s not mined short of the jeweler seeing the lab report/cert!

Love my lab diamond, when I get another ring made it will definitely be lab again!
