Why Choose Natural Diamonds?
Characteristics of Natural Diamonds
Diamonds are true natural wonders. These brilliant gemstones are not just beautiful, but they possess many qualities that make them unique. They are the hardest natural material on earth, ensuring they will last for many lifetimes. Diamonds are created far underneath the earth; millions of years of high heat and pressure naturally cause carbon atoms to arrange themselves in a geometrically perfect pattern. They are pushed to the surface through volcanic activity, where they are then mined throughout the world in places like Canada and Botswana. Most diamonds are low quality and are not useful for jewelry, so they are instead used by factories. The rare stones that make the cut are spectacular, glamorous, and radiant.
Natural vs. Lab-Created
Some people opt for lab-grown diamonds as an alternative to their natural counterparts. These stones are structurally the same as natural diamonds but are created in a controlled environment. The most common method is putting tiny diamonds in a chamber, wherein superheated carbon gas is pumped, gradually accumulating on the seed. This eventually leads to a jewelry-worthy diamond. Many modern couples choose these lab-grown gems because they are cheaper than earth-minded stones. They can be made en masse, which increases supply to match the demand. However, every stone is more or less identical.
Why Choose a Natural Stone?
Natural diamonds may be more expensive than their laboratory-grown counterparts, but they have many qualities that can never be replicated. For starters, every natural diamond is unique. They have a distinctive combination of inclusions or flaws that separate them from other gems. However, these are usually only observable to a trained eye. This is better for conveying the beauty of love, conveying and illustrating the rarity of a relationship’s value. In addition, natural stones are inherently more valuable. They can be better investments. This makes them better as heirlooms.
