Yardley, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/02/2018 -- Lab grown diamonds, engineered diamonds, or cultured diamonds, are taking the diamond industry by storm. Michael's Jewelers of Yardley & Fairless Hills, a prominent jeweler in Bucks County, PA, is excited to add these precious stones to their inventory.
Lab grown diamonds are grown in a highly controlled laboratory using highly advanced technology. This is a process that duplicates the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle beneath the earth's crust. These man-made diamonds consist of actual carbon, with atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since they are made of the same material as a diamond from the earth, they exhibit the same optical and chemical properties as a traditionally mined diamond.
Unlike diamonds from the earth, lab grown diamonds are environmentally friendly. To find a 1 carat rough diamond underground, approximately 1750 tons of the earth must be displaced. Lab grown diamonds only use a fraction of this energy to produce using wind turbines leaving a low carbon footprint. Lab grown diamonds, unlike earth diamonds, are 100% conflict free, being that they are grown in a laboratory.
Lab grown diamonds came onto the scene about five years ago, but stores were reluctant to sell them due to the questionable long term value associated with their origin. The industry has since moved into sourcing more environmentally conscious and conflict-free diamonds to protect both environmental and humanitarian interests.
In addition to being environmentally friendly and humane in their sourcing, lab grown diamonds are less expensive per carat, meaning an interested buyer can purchase a 2 carat lab grown stone for the same amount as a traditionally sourced 1.5 carat stone.
Those looking for a luxury jeweler near Newtown, PA, are encouraged to visit Michael's Jewelers at both their Yardley and Fairless Hills locations to see their inventory of lab grown diamonds.
