Lab-Grown Diamonds are Now the Future of Jewellery: Here's Why
Lab-grown pieces are taking a growing slice of the pie in the worldwide jewellery industry—especially for sentimental pieces like Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands. Here in the Philippines, however, there are still a lot of questions surrounding this precious gemstone. Regardless, industry experts are making a clear statement: lab diamonds are the future and are here to stay. 💍💚
Millennials and Gen Zs: Driving the Lab-Grown Industry
"Millennials and Gen Zs are drawn to lab-grown diamonds because of their low price, transparency, and sustainability," says the Professional Jeweller. 🌏
With every purchase, the younger generations show that sustainability is one of the things they value most. In fact, "Gen Zs care about sustainability more than anyone else," according to the World Economic Forum. They're the biggest champions of lab diamonds and are successfully convincing their circles to make the greener switch! 🌱💎
Why Lab-Grown is the Future of Jewellery: Hear it from the Experts 🤓
1. "The size diamond dreams are made of, at a price you can afford" 💍
According to Jean Dousset, founder of his namesake fine jewellery brand, and great-great-grandson of Louis Cartier, "[D]iamond buyers are now able to have the size diamond dreams are made of, at a price they can afford, without any sacrifices on the quality of the stones.”
A lab diamond is physically, chemically, and optically the same as its natural counterpart. With the same price tag, women not only enjoy a bigger and brighter Engagement Ring but also get a huge win on sustainability.
2. Sustainability at its Heart 💚
Speaking of sustainability, "[A]s consumers have become more aware of the environmental and social impact of their fashion and shopping choices, the question of ethics surrounding diamonds has also been raised. Some argue that this industry has a severe environmental, economic, and social impact on communities where natural diamonds are mined," says Refinery29.
Lab-grown diamonds answer most of these concerns since these precious gemstones are expertly grown in laboratories above ground. This technological marvel brings us a greener alternative to the brilliant gemstone that the world has grown to love. 🌱💍
3. Natural Diamonds are a Finite Resource ⌛️
“Fewer and fewer mined diamonds will be coming out of the ground. That means the gap can only be filled by lab-grown,” says Ryan Shearman of The Diamond Foundry.
Time will come when the world's diamonds are all above ground. Lab-grown diamonds ensure that future generations can still enjoy their own brilliant, beautiful, and meaningful pieces. ✨
4. The Real Value of Lab Diamonds 💎
"The real value in diamonds is not about price or rarity. It’s about the emotional value,” says Sidney Neuhaus, co-founder of Kimaï.
We can't help but agree—the value of lab diamond pieces is more than just monetary. Your Lab Diamond Engagement Ring, Wedding Band, and Fine Jewellery will carry more than a lifetime's worth of vows, memories, and stories that you'll hold dear. It's the biggest reason why lab diamonds are well-loved and are here to stay.
