Regardless of how many people think they can tell the difference between a lab grown and earth mined, MOST people can’t.  Don’t let this deter you from getting a beautiful stone and rocking it.  I swear so many people like to make others feel less than for not having a mined diamond.  I hope you love whatever you choose – that’s all that matters ❀️

hleeeex3 :  I would suggest also looking at BE πŸ™‚  My stone is 2.04 ct VS2 G, ideal as well and my cost was 7700.  I am so excited that you got to experience them in person!

jaqawilliams : agreed! I would even say no one can tell and whoever says they can doesn’t understand chemistry. If it weren’t for the laser inscription jewelers couldn’t tell in most cases either. This is because lab diamonds and mine diamonds are the same thing, glorified covalent bonds of carbon. Now what can happen is comparing a lab diamond and a mine diamond of different specs (clarity cut etc) and thinking you can tell the difference. Get Two with identical specs and there is no difference. Chemistry is chemistry…

hleeeex3 :  Remember it’s essentially a crystal with carbons sharing electrons… that’s it. Anything else are impurity’s or imperfections. Not one person can notice the difference visually. What they can notice is the quality of the diamond. Most mall store diamond are quite poor in quality so if you put a diamond with great specs by it there will be a clear difference.
