Should I buy Lab-Grown Diamond studs over Natural Diamonds?

There are several reasons why someone might choose to buy a pair of Lab-Grown, Diamond Stud Earrings over Natural Diamond Earrings. 

Here are a few potential advantages:

Price: Lab-grown diamonds are now more affordable than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality. The process of growing diamonds in a lab allows for greater control over the production, and time variables, reducing the costs associated with mining and transportation.

Natural Diamonds:

1-2 carats each, EF in color, VS in clarity – wholesale price range- $10-$30,000+


Same quality – $1,500+

Natural Diamonds :

2-3+ carats each, EF in color, VS in clarity – wholesale price range – $60-$100,000+


Same quality – $4-$5,000+

*So there will be approximately a 90% savings in price. This price range makes owning a pair of significant, gem-quality, diamond stud earrings much more attractive and accessible to the general public. 

Aesthetics: Lab-grown diamonds are chemically and optically identical to natural diamonds and possess the same brilliance, sparkle, and beauty as a natural diamond so It is impossible to distinguish the difference between them with the naked eye. It’s worth noting that some individuals may still prefer natural diamonds due to their rarity, historical significance, and long-term investment value. Ultimately, the decision between buying lab-grown and natural diamond stud earrings depends on individual
values, priorities, and budget.

Ethics and Sustainability: Some people prefer lab-grown diamonds because they are considered to be more ethical and environmentally friendly. Mining natural diamonds can have social and environmental implications, such as human rights concerns and habitat disruption. Lab-grown diamonds avoid these issues.

Quality and Consistency: Lab-grown diamonds are created in a controlled environment using advanced technology. As a result, they often exhibit fewer flaws and imperfections compared to natural diamonds. Additionally, the production process allows for consistent quality, meaning you can expect a high level of clarity and color in each stone.

Origin and Traceability: Lab-grown diamonds offer full traceability and transparency in terms of their origin. Each stone will have a certificate from the IGI or GIA and can be traced back to the laboratory where it was created, providing reassurance to consumers who want to know the exact source of their diamonds.

No matter what your budget might be, the key is to deal with a reputable company that is both knowledgeable and service-oriented to help guide you in the right direction.
