Nowadays, jewelry lovers are far more conscious about what they are buying. They are far more informed about the making process, quality and composition of lab-made gems than the industry gives credit for. Aesthetics aside, affordability has been driving the growing demand for the man-made diamonds and synthetic gemstones.
There is no wonder that lab-made diamonds are taking the center stage and slowly taking a significant part of the market share. The only real manner in which to identify a lab-grown gem from a mined diamond is with specific equipment available to laboratories only.
Man-made diamonds are produced with advanced technology and have the same chemical composition of a mined diamond. The cost to manufacture a large diamond is far less than to mine one.
