What Are the 4C’s?

The 4C’s are simply the four characteristics by which diamonds are evaluated. These qualities include cut, color, clarity and carat weight.

Lab Grown Diamonds

Natural Diamonds VS Lab Grown

Lab grown diamonds are essentially identical to natural diamonds in terms of their physical properties. To the naked eye, they look indistinguishable from natural diamonds. They have the same brightness, fire and scintillation that makes diamonds so coveted. However, some people argue that there is something intangible about a real diamond that a lab grown diamond cannot replicate.

One of the attributes of lab grown diamonds is that they are less likely to have as many internal inclusions or fractures. This can make them more durable and resistant to damage. However, it’s important to note that both natural and lab grown diamonds are incredibly durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear.

One of the key appeals of lab grown diamonds is their price. They are typically less expensive than natural diamonds of the same carat weight and quality. Some customers see this as an opportunity to buy larger or more elaborate designs than they might be able to afford with natural diamonds. However, it’s worth noting that the cost of a diamond is not solely determined by its carat weight and quality. Natural diamonds hold value over time and can even appreciate in value. Lab grown diamonds, however, do not.
