They Are Now Making Diamonds In Labs, Which Cost 30% Less Than Natural Ones

December 11, 2014 by Sara Alderman

According to a study, 26% off all American engagements this year will happen between Christmas Eve and New Years. So it’s pretty convenient that a major breakthrough in lab-grown diamonds was just announced.

Pure Grown Diamonds recently unveiled the largest white diamond created in a lab. It took just weeks to form in a pressurized container, as opposed to growing in the Earth for millions and millions of years. The lab-grown diamond is not just identical looks wise to an earth-mined diamond (even under a microscope!), it also has the same chemical and physical properties. These are not just replicas of diamonds, these are diamonds.

The only difference? Pure Grown Diamonds cost 30-40% less than earth grown ones. So yeah, these are pretty much a game changer. Your (or your soon-to-be fiancee hint hint) can buy these lab-grown diamonds now on the new Pure Grown Diamonds e-commerce site.
