It was the works of a scrupulous London based diamond company by the name of De Beers, and a New York advertiser by the name of N.W. Ayer in the diamond crusted year of 1938 that led to the institutional connect. An advertising campaign later, the concept was born, and the rest is history.

The Rise of Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds have been around for a while, there are numerous tales that link the late 19th century to their first creation. The common belief is held that it was sometime in the 1980s where gem-quality labs were made available for commercial use and practices. Technology was taking off in the direction of making lab-grown diamonds more accessible, easier to craft and of course, more plentiful for consumers.

The use of lab-grown diamonds in engagement rings has become more prevalent in the last 15-20 years as technological advances have allowed a more flawless and beautiful result to be observed with almost no discernible difference found between a lab-grown and mined diamond.

The Debate Between Lab Grown Diamonds and Natural Mined Diamonds

Look

The look of a lab-grown diamond is incredibly flawless, often fooling anyone who looks at one except for the experts who are simply looking to find any difference. They have the same sheen and characteristics, with a slight perfection that can sometimes be noticeable when compared to a mined diamond which will still have their small and infinitesimal imperfections.

Price

Here’s the crux of the argument, lab-grown diamonds are typically a lot cheaper and more affordable than mined ones. Why? Some say it’s a question of authenticity (which we’ll get into). Be that as it may, the fact that chemically and optically, there is very little difference between a lab-grown and a mined diamond entails that this could be the way forward for those who are looking for engagement rings in Brisbane that have a big impact, for a smaller price.

Authenticity

We’re not going to get into a massive philosophical debate on the nature of authenticity. However, those who want to use the mined diamond in their engagement rings are of course free to say they have the genuine earthly article. There are also those who believe in the act it represents in lieu of the actual diamond. When it comes to engagement rings especially, it’s entirely up to the beholder.

The Verdict

Well, if you were looking for a definitive answer on the question of lab-grown or mined for engagement rings in Brisbane, we cannot give one. There are many variables, and much like a work of art or anything produced by science, there will always be a debate surrounding it. If you are looking to get married and don’t have the largest budget in the world, then lab-grown diamond engagement rings could be your step forward. In the end, it’s the love that counts.
