Design trends don’t often start in New Orleans, but here at Ramsey’s, we’ve been big fans of Newborn Lab Created Diamonds for years.
And apparently, Hollywood is catching on.
In the September issue of Style, CNN reporter Laura McCreddie-Doak spotlights the high-flying celebrities who chose to wear lab-created diamonds at this year's Academy Awards.
Singer/actor Billy Porter sported a 500+ carat lab-created diamond necklace while he performed on stage at this year's Academy Awards.
He's not the only one.
Many other celebrities have been photographed wearing lab-created diamonds including Meghan Markle, Lady Gaga, Zoë Kravitz, Emma Watson, and Penelope Cruz.
Leonardo DiCaprio is such a big believer, he bought into a diamond manufacturing company.
The list goes on and on.
Hollywood types like making bold statements. And those who like the high-tech marriage between science and sparkle can’t get enough.
You see, lab-created diamonds are identical to earth-mined diamonds.
They start as the seed of a real diamond. The only difference is that the intense heat and pressure required to form them doesn't happen naturally. Instead, it takes place in a plasma chamber.
Laura McCreddie-Doak of CNN says that "diamonds made in a laboratory aren't fake, they are chemically and structurally real, unlike cubic zirconia or moissanite, which look similar to diamonds but have different chemical and physical properties (and which you can easily spot if you breathe on one of these gems -- it'll stay fogged up)."
Created diamonds are real diamonds. Not even a jeweler can tell the difference.
We’re certainly glad that people who can wear 500 carat diamond necklaces are catching on. But that doesn’t mean you’ll pay for more a lab-created diamond.
Actually, the opposite is true.
Our own Lori Ramsey sums it up best: “Dollar for dollar, lab-created diamonds are usually at least 50% larger than earth-mined diamonds of the same size and quality. And in the larger sizes, created diamonds are literally twice as big."
Who doesn’t want a bigger, better diamond for their money?
