Are Lab-grown Diamonds the Real Deal for that Special Someone?

(GMA) Shopping for a diamond for a special someone?

Before you make your purchase, you may want to learn more about lab-grown diamonds.

This option has grown in popularity and been seen on celebs such as Bindi Irwin.

A lab-grown diamond is formed by scientists who duplicate the diamond-growing process above ground.

The method takes around six to 10 weeks and claims to be more ethical and environmentally conscious than mining…

Gemological Science International is one of the labs that certifies lab-grown diamonds, with 13 labs across four continents.

“A diamond is a solid transparent crystalline form of carbon. Lab-grown diamonds have the same optical, chemical and physical properties as natural diamonds,” Debbie Azar, president and co-founder of GSI, told “GMA.”

“However, natural diamonds are formed over billions of years, hundreds of miles beneath the Earth’s surface under truly remarkable conditions. Natural diamonds are unique as no two are ever the same,” Azar added.

If the individuality of the diamonds isn’t as important to you, lab-grown diamonds are easily available at large stores such as Kay Jewelers, Zales, Jared and James Allen.
