What makes Love Earth diamonds special?

Love Earth uses Type IIa lab- grown diamond centers which are produced in the United States under a patented protected CVD process. Type IIa are the most valued and purest type of diamonds in the world. The Cullinan and Koh-I-Noor in the crown jewels is a Type IIa diamond. They contain either very little or no nitrogen atoms in the crystal structure. White stones are exceptionally colorless while fancy colored diamonds are often found with a brown, purple, blue, or pink tone.

What is a Love Earth lab-grown diamond?

A Love Earth lab-grown diamond is a genuine diamond that is man-made in a lab. They are also called synthetic diamonds which is technically correct but confusing and misleading. In fact, the FTC has acknowledged that the term, synthetic diamond, is misleading and agreed that laboratory grown, cultured or laboratory created can be used to alleviate such confusion. Lab- grown diamonds, Love Earth diamonds, are in fact the real-deal sharing the same diamond crystal lattice structure as earth-mined diamonds. Advanced technology replicates the same conditions deep within the earths mantel. 

What makes Love Earth lab-grown diamonds different than earth mined diamonds?

Love Earth diamonds origins are different. Here’s one way to think about it: some diamonds are mined from tundra's in Canada using hefty machinery. Other diamonds are mined from alluvial deposits in places like Africa using simpler tools and equipment. Then there are Love Earth diamonds that are grown in a lab. They are all diamonds produced under different conditions. In essence, you have a choice in how you purchase your diamond jewelry.

Are there different ways of making lab-grown diamonds?

Lab created diamonds can be made in two main ways. One method is high-pressure high-temperature (also known as the HPHT process). This is when engineers make something of a diamond/carbon soup and then using high heat and high pressure they are able to create single diamond crystals. The other way is via chemical vapor deposition (known as CVD). This process takes a tiny seed of a diamond crystal and then grows that diamond layer by layer in a chamber. Love Earth center stone diamonds are grown within the United States under a CVD patented process.

I love the science of it all. Tell me more about how Love Earth diamonds are produced.

A.   A disc containing 15-30 diamond seeds is placed in the plasma reactor grow chamber.

B.   A plasma ball of superheated gases is created in the chamber.

C.   Heat is increased to 900-1200* C

D.   Methane and hydrogen gases stick to the seed. The diamond forms carbon atom by carbon atom for 14-28 days.

E.    Highly trained technicians monitor the growth of the diamond removing it when the gem has reached its precise diamond qualities.

F.    The beautiful diamond undergoes precision cutting and polishing to maximize its beauty.

Do Love Earth lab-grown diamonds possess the same properties of a mined diamond?

A Love Earth lab-grown diamond is a real diamond in every sense: chemically, physically, optically and atomically. The primary difference between lab-grown and mined diamonds is their respective origin. For example: Two rose bushes, one is grown in a green house, the other outdoors in nature’s elements. They are both rose bushes in every-way, the only difference is their origin in the same way a true synthetic diamond is a real diamond in every sense. The primary difference between synthetic and natural diamonds is in their respective origin. Love Earth diamonds are grown in a specially created environment using sophisticated technology while the latter formed in the Earth's mantle millions of years ago. Being the same material, merely with different origins, Love Earth lab-grown diamonds and natural diamonds have similar properties. This chart compares the properties of mined and synthetic diamonds and common diamond simulants:

What is the difference between Love Earth lab-grown diamonds verses diamond simulants?

There is a major difference between Love Earth lab-grown diamonds and diamond simulants. Diamond simulants, such as cubic zirconia and moissanite, look similar to diamonds but are not true carbon crystals. Simulants do not have the same chemical and physical properties as mined diamonds, and therefore sell at much lower prices. In short, a simulant is a substitute trying to look like another gem, but a simulant does not have the same properties of the gem they are trying to imitate. A Love Earth lab-grown diamond is a real diamond possessing the same properties as a mined diamond.


If Love Earth lab-grown diamonds are exactly the same as mined diamonds why are they classified separately?

To the naked eye there is no difference between a mined and a Love Earth lab-grown diamond. As the mined diamonds and Love Earth lab-grown diamonds are very difficult to differentiate, complete disclosure is clearly in the best interests of the consumer. So that the customer may be well informed about their choices, Love Earth is bound by law and ethics to clearly disclose that our diamonds are lab- grown.


Are Love Earth lab grown diamonds certified?

Love Earth lab grown diamonds are graded to the exact same standards as earth-mined diamonds, and they come with a certification by the leading independent American accredited gemological lab and institute, the International Gemological Institute (IGI) IGI certifications are the same ones that earth mined diamonds use and have a detailed description of the grading results of the 4C’s, as well as a full disclosure of the grown diamond origin. It will also provide you with the certification number that is laser inscribed on every Love Earth diamond.


Do Love Earth diamonds cost less than earth mined diamonds?

Yes, the price variation between mined diamonds and Love Earth lab-grown diamonds of the same cut, clarity, carat and color can be significant.

Who is a Love Earth diamond for?

Everyone, Love Earth lab-grown diamond engagement rings and fashion jewelry are popular for some of the same reasons that mined diamonds are. They can be purchased in beautiful traditional and custom settings and styles, certified and come with a lifetime warranty and trade-in policy.
