What are Lab Grown Diamonds and are they real diamonds?
Yes, lab grown diamonds are real diamonds!
Lab grown diamonds are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes that replicate the conditions under which natural diamonds are develop beneath the Earth’s crust. Lab grown diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since lab grown diamonds are made of the same material as natural diamonds, they consist of the same optical and chemical properties.
How are Lab Grown Diamonds made?
Our lab grown diamonds are created from the tiny carbon diamond seeds of pre-existing diamonds. Because of recent technological advances, they are grown by extreme pressure and heat or a special deposition process known as CVD which replicates the method of natural diamond formation.
What happens when testing a Lab Grown Diamond?
Lab grown diamonds and natural diamonds both have the exact same optical and chemical composition. Any diamond test will return a positive test for a diamond.

Dove Diamonds Ethical Choice of Diamonds.
How are Dove Diamonds conflict free?
The practice of lab grown diamonds protects against human rights abuses, minimises environmental harm and preserves the safe and responsible practices of labour. They are much safer, ethically conscious and healthier for the workers and environment compared to traditionally mined diamonds. Our lab grown diamonds are strictly sourced from established manufacturers that practice ethical labour, trade and environmental standards.
How are lab grown diamonds from Dove Diamonds eco-friendly?
Yes, we are strong believers in an eco-friendly future. All our lab grown diamonds are ethically sourced. Traditional diamonds are sourced from underground mines and blasted with explosives. For every carat of diamond that is mined, nearly 10 square metres of land is disrupted and almost 3,000kgs of waste is created. Due to this careless method of sourcing diamonds, it has left the environment in a poor and disastrous state. In severe cases this has caused devastating damage to the ecosystem and wildlife.
