How Are Lab-Grown Diamonds Made?

Nangi drop

Lab-grown diamonds are just as striking as their mined counterparts, but how are these gorgeous gems actually made? We let you in on the secret!

Lab-grown diamonds are the future. Mind you, they are not synthetic, they’re 100% real diamonds!

When growing a diamond in a laboratory, we recreate the same conditions that form diamonds underground.

Here’s a rundown of how the technology works

To turn tiny atoms into shiny diamonds, there’s a four-step process:

  • Diamonds are made out of carbon. To create a diamond, we start out with one single carbon seed.
  • The carbon seed is placed in very hot conditions to recreate the earth’s own process. With the right temperature and pressure over time, it will take about 2-4 weeks to grow one rough diamond in the lab.
  • Lab gemmologists (experts on gemstones) examine and quality-check the diamond to make sure it holds the highest standard.
  • The diamond is then cut and polished to get the right shape and perfect sparkle.

Nangi is the first and only Norwegian jeweler to offer lab-grown diamonds.

Only renewable green energy goes into the making of lab-grown diamonds. That means you are 100% certain where your diamond comes from, and you can rest assure the process is sustainable from start to finish.

Lab-grown diamonds are conflict-free and eco-friendly, and the only alternative to mined diamonds. Besides, they’re cheaper and just as beautiful.
