EXQUISITE BEAUTY • CRYSTALLINE CARBON
A natural diamond is formed under high pressure and high temperatures that exists about 100 miles below the earth’s surface. A mined diamond is a diamond that is naturally made in the earth over 1 to 3 billion years. Mined diamond's start their life as carbon dioxide and over time with extensive pressure and heat they will naturally modify to a solid stone. These stones are mined from the earth, cut, polished, and set into jewelry.
A lab grown diamond is created using extreme pressure and heat, but inside a machine rather than deep under the Earth. The technology behind lab diamonds has made crucial advances in recent years, allowing companies to grow higher quality diamonds more rapidly and at a lower cost.
