We created the perfect guide to illustrate the difference between Natural and Lab-Grown Diamonds. The major misconception is that Lab-Grown Diamonds are better for the environment compared to natural diamonds - FALSE.
Modern Diamond Mining techniques are advanced in ensuring that carbon emissions are minimized and actions are taken with sustainable development as paramount. "The CVD process in creating Lab-Grown Diamonds emits 70% more carbon into the atmosphere as compared to diamond mining practices" (NDC, 2020).
