Eco-conscious consumers are following top celebrities and are becoming more open-minded towards lab grown diamonds.
Martha Hunt is promoting sustainable jewelry
“You can have the same quality of diamond but without risking any of the conflict that can sometimes be associated with mined diamonds,” she explained.
Naturally, there are critics who might question whether or not a lab-created stone can really be considered a ‘real’ diamond, but Hunt insists that they shouldn’t be considered less special.
“These diamonds are the exact same chemical structure of a mined diamond, created in the same way the earth creates diamonds through heat and pressure,” she told us. “This means they can be of the same quality as a mined diamond (if not better), and are real, but you can guarantee that they are 100% conflict free because you know exactly where they came from.”
Since diamonds are considered to be a girl's best friend, this trend is likely to continue well into the future making lab-growns the ideal sustainable jewelry.
