BABIES VS. DIAMONDS
I know I say this a lot, but it’s true. Diamonds are a lot like people. Let’s pretend you’ve got two kids. One was conceived the old-fashioned way and the other through the help of in vitro fertilization. Now, are you going to introduce your two children by saying “hey, this is my natural kid and this is my lab grown kid”? Of course not! It’s not like one is real and the other is fake. You’re not gonna call Johnny a “test-tube baby” and Joey your “natural wonder”. At least I hope you don't anyway... No, you're going to refer to your children as your children. There’s zero difference in what kind of child it is, even though one had the assistance of modern science and the other didn’t. Right?
Well, that same principle applies to diamonds. Just like your two children, lab grown and mined diamonds have the same genetic makeup. On a molecular level, both are extremely similar. Lab grown diamonds and in vitro children aren’t fake
knockoffs. They’re both simply diamonds and both simply kids.
The only actual difference is cost. Natural diamonds are mined, which is an extremely expensive process. It involves labor, machines, creating the actual mine, paying taxes in the country of origin, transportation... And the list goes on. With lab grown diamonds, you bypass all of that, eliminating the process and cutting out the middle-men. The best part is, you get the exact same diamond at a lower price
point. Just like both kids are real, both diamonds are real as well. Down to their basic building blocks, you’re paying for the same thing.
With lab grown diamonds, you don’t just save money. You’re saving TONS of money. Let me crunch the numbers for you. Say you’ve got a 1-carat lab grown diamond versus a 1-carat mined diamond. They’re identical in every way, from cut to clarity. The cost of the mined diamond? $5,000. The price of the lab grown stone? A cool $1,500. With lab grown, you can get the diamond you want at a price that can’t be beat.
And no-one can tell the difference. Why? Because it’s a real diamond. Just like your real child. Now, if you were expecting a blog about babies fighting diamonds, I’m truly sorry to disappoint. However, after reading the similarities of these two situations, I hope you come away with one key takeaway. Lab grown diamonds aren't mutant phonies. Lab grown diamonds are in fact, very real. Other jewelers and diamond companies make their living based on lies that lab grown diamonds are different, lack sentimental value or blah blah yakety ya. But, science shows us that both types of diamonds are identical. With mined diamonds, you pay for the process, not the product. Simple as that.
It’s the diamond truth. Guaranteed.
