The expert consultants at Bopie’s are dedicated to offering our customers only the highest quality options for loose diamonds from trustworthy providers, and giving advice with honesty and transparency. Now, we have the honor of including Lab-Grown Diamonds in our inventory — 100% true diamonds, made by replicating the environmental factors which birth naturally occurring diamonds.
Nature’s Process Perfected
Diamonds are born deep within the earth, brought to the surface by churning volcanic activity. During their development, they can be exposed to foreign elements that can give them discoloration, inclusions, and cloudiness. Lab-grown diamonds begin with pure carbon, put into a controlled environment which simulates the immense pressure and temperature required for a naturally occurring diamond to form. They are genuine, true diamonds, having the very same atomic structure as mined diamonds, making them indistinguishable even to expert gemologists, aside from having internally flawless clarity. In addition to this, rather than taking billions of years to form, and needing costly mining operations to recover them, lab-grown diamonds can take as few as 12 weeks to develop before they are simply taken out, cut, and sent to waiting buyers.
Picking the Right Diamond for You
Many consumers like the idea of a mined diamond better for the sentimental value of something that came from the earth. Most young people will choose a lab-created diamond because of its financial practicality and the growing awareness of the ethical concerns of diamond mining. At Bopie’s, either choice is the right choice, because our diamonds are responsibly sourced and conflict-free, coming only from vendors that follow the Kimberley Process.
