Lab-grown diamonds are diamonds that are created in a laboratory, by man, and they exhibit the same chemical, optical, and physical properties, as natural diamonds that are mined from the earth. The difference between a lab-grown diamond and a diamond that's mined naturally from the earth is that the diamond that's mined naturally from the earth took billions of years to be created, whereas a diamond that's created in a laboratory is grown in a much shorter period of time in a more controlled environment.
Some additional differences of lab-grown diamonds versus mined is that the lab-grown diamonds are eco-friendly and always conflict free. Because they are created in the laboratory, there isn’t the risk that the diamonds came from an area of conflict.
