Lab-grown diamonds are identical to natural diamonds. Choosing lab-grown diamond accessories for weddings and personal usage is a good option since these cost less than natural diamonds. The GIA and IGI are recently working together to make the lab-grown diamonds accessible to every class of people. In this article, we will talk about how to choose the right lab-grown diamond accessory.
How to choose
Know your seller
Many distributors and contractual sellers sell lab grown diamonds in the market nowadays. There is a large-scale distribution of lab-grown diamonds in the market due to their fewer prices. Before buying from any company or seller, check their background and make sure they are not selling you the wrong product.
Check the product
Before buying any diamond accessory, check the diamond's carat, clarity, color, and cut. Carat represents the weight of the diamond. Check if the diamond weight is standard (0.89 to 1.0) carat. After checking the carat, look for the color and see if its clarity is admirable. The more the clarity, the more the diamond looks elegant and it enhances the diamond value. Lastly, the cut of the diamond is also important. Cut determines the reflection and the scintillation of the diamond. After being assured of all these characteristics, you can move ahead buy the diamond.
Check the evaluation
Before buying the diamond, check the evaluation report of its structure and characteristics provided by the IGI or the GIA. These reports show measurements, proportions, clarity, etc., of the diamond. If you find the report satisfying, you can move forward to buy the diamond.
Make a budget
Before choosing and buying any diamond or diamond accessory, make sure you have decided your budget. After making a decent budget, you can go ahead to buy your desired diamond. Just so you know lab-grown diamonds cost 45% less than natural diamonds.
While buying diamonds or diamond accessories keep in mind the above discussion and make sure to follow the IGI and GIA reports.
