Stambaugh Jewelers is proud to offer Lab created diamonds. Lab created diamonds are identical to Mined diamonds, sharing the same physical, chemical and optical properties as their natural counterparts. The only difference is its point of origin as one is grown above ground while the other is "earth made". Materials such as Cubic Zirconia (CZ) and Moissanite are simulants that simply attempt to "look" like a diamond.
Lab grown diamonds are graded to the same specifications as mined diamond and accompanied by Diamond Grading Reports from independent laboratores such as the International Gemological Insitute (IGI) These certificates are just like mined diamond certificates including the grading of the 4C's along with full disclosure of the diamonds Lab Grown origin. IGI also laser inscribed the certificate number and "Lab Grown" on the girdle of the diamond, furthering the confirmation of the diamonds origin.
