MORE CHOICE, WITHOUT THE IMPACT OF MINING
With today’s advanced technological processes, diamonds no longer have to be mined; they can be made. This reduces the impact of mining on the environment and wildlife, while giving you access to a wider selection of diamonds.
While to some, the idea of a lab grown diamond may not feel as romantic, nearly 70% of millennials are considering them, creating a rapidly growing trend. There are a few reasons for their popularity: firstly, they are “real” diamonds. Chemically, optically and physically, they are indistinguishable from naturally grown diamonds, even when viewed by jewellers at 10x magnification.
They also tend to be less expensive, allowing you to get a bigger diamond for your budget. And because they’re grown in a lab, there is no risk of the environmental or humanitarian issues that often plague the diamond mining industry. However, while they may not scar the landscape in the same way mining can, they do leave a carbon footprint due to the energy required to manufacture diamonds. Just how much of a footprint is created is not yet publicly known, but with such vast amounts of pressure and heat generated in the process, it cannot be insignificant.
At Ingle & Rhode, our natural diamonds are all ethically sourced and traceable, from mines that take due care and environmental responsibility. So why choose a lab grown diamond? Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference, availability and price.
