Lab-grown diamond earrings are becoming increasingly popular as wallet-friendly alternatives to mined diamonds. But do they make good diamond earrings? If you're in the market for a pair of lab-grown diamond earrings, here are a few things to keep in mind to help you find the perfect pair.

What are Lab Diamond Earrings?

There is a misconception that lab grown diamond earrings are the same as simulant or "fake" diamonds, such as cubic zirconia or moissanite.
It is true that cubic zirconia and moissanite might look similar to diamonds if you’re not familiar, however they have very different chemical properties, and are far less durable and brilliant than diamonds.

As for lab-grown diamonds, they have the same crystal lattice of carbon atoms as Earth-grown diamonds - and essentially the same chemical composition.

Provides a Conflict-Free Guarantee?

The lab grown diamonds from Whiteflash used in fine jewelry like earrings, necklaces and rings, look just like natural loose diamonds, and they're inherently conflict-free; all natural diamonds sold on Whiteflash are also conflict free by virtue of ethical sourcing.
The Kimberley Process has been highly effective at preventing conflict diamonds from entering today's market, as they have been brought to market according to KP requirements.
There is an active debate surrounding environmental issues within the diamond industry, and this debate promotes transparency to consumers - which we are all for. It is our intention at Whiteflash to be at the forefront of ethical discussions within the diamond industry and to provide you with accurate information as soon as they arise.

The 4Cs: Graded The Same Way

Grading reports can be issued for lab-grown diamonds the same way they can for natural diamonds. There is no shortage of labs that grade lab-grown diamonds, including the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the International Gemological Institute (IGI), and many other renowned gem laboratories.
You would perhaps be surprised to hear how similarly both lab diamonds are graded. Whether a diamond is lab-grown or natural, the clarity grading scale is the same. Like a natural diamond, a laboratory-grown diamond may have inclusions that are so small they can't be seen without magnification.
You don't need to worry about your lab diamond earrings that only a few will be able to see up close and personal, because even a gemologist cannot discriminate between lab-created diamonds and natural diamonds without specialized equipment.

Lab Grown vs Natural Mined Diamond Earring Price

Lab diamond earrings can accommodate a wide range of budgets. Unlike natural diamonds, synthetic diamonds are produced by dozens of laboratories worldwide. There are only a few places on Earth where natural diamonds can be found, and recovering and bringing them to market is an expensive proposition.
Technological advancements make lab diamond manufacturing more affordable and accessible. As a result, lab grown diamond earrings are much less expensive, although they have little or no residual value compared to naturally mined diamond earrings.
Customers who purchase lab-grown diamond earrings recognize that their economic advantage is the far lower upfront cost, rather than long term value. This is a great strategy for fine jewelry designed for fashion, as opposed to the more emotional value that natural diamonds convey for most people. It is a particularly good choice for gifting and self-purchase diamond jewelry.

As lab-grown diamonds offer cost savings and a variety of possibilities, how can you use that to your advantage to make simply stunning earrings? We’ve detailed some of our favorite ways below.

Purchase Online

Lab-grown diamond earrings are available to purchase online just as natural diamonds are - you do not need to visit a brick-and-mortar retailer to purchase them.
As a buyer, ensure you do your due diligence and fully review the diamond's properties before you buy it online. Reputable online retailers will provide certificates from a reputable gemological laboratory, describing the diamond's color, cut, and clarity, and measurements in detail; just like mined diamonds.
Don't forget to check out the diamond's pictures and videos. Find a jeweler who has high-resolution images and videos of their lab-grown diamonds to get a sense of how they perform and interact with light. A diamond grading report is also a must.
A reputable jeweler will allow you to search for the perfect pair of lab diamonds for your earrings. It is important to keep in mind, however, that they do not have to be exact in order to match and look good together. The right jeweler will be on hand to advise and provide guidance.

As Always, Prioritize Cut

Precision Lab Grown Diamonds
More people are becoming familiar with lab-grown diamonds, which has led to an increase in consumer demand and its usage in fine jewelry, such as diamond earrings.
When it comes to diamonds, cut is of utmost importance. No doubt, it is the most important component contributing to a diamond's "sparkle," which truly defines its beauty. As a result, you should never compromise on the cut quality of a lab-grown diamond, especially when trying to achieve the best earring sparkle.
It is just as challenging to make a perfect diamond from a lab-grown diamond and maximize its brilliance and reflection as it is from a mined diamond. When it comes to lab-grown diamonds, however, prioritizing the cut is much more affordable.
You can maximize the fire and brilliance of your lab diamond earrings by choosing an excellent or ideal cut diamond. Natural diamonds of commercial quality are typically poorly cut and have much lower color and clarity than Precision Lab diamonds from Whiteflash.
At Whiteflash, all lab grown round diamonds in our Precision Lab brand are verified to be Hearts and Arrows diamonds without any post-growth treatments. In addition to being high color and clarity, each diamond is inscribed LG with its report number. We invite you to see samples of these fine lab grown diamonds on our natural vs lab grown diamonds page, and imagine how they might look as a dazzling pair of earrings.

Invest in an Upgrade With the Cost Savings

There is no reason to compromise when you choose a lab diamond since you are saving so much money.
Laboratory-created diamonds are usually better and/or bigger than mined diamonds in any given budget range. Generally, a lab-grown diamond of the same color and clarity would cost the same as a 1-carat diamond, but double the weight at 2 carats instead! It is quite remarkable how much more your budget will buy in a lab grown diamond!
The price of your lab grown diamond earrings will depend on the diamond quality details as well as other factors like the type of metal and setting you choose.

Pair With a Beautiful Setting
