Diamonds: Natural vs Manmade - what’s the difference?

At Temprell we are offering the latest generation of diamonds- Lab grown. These stones provide an alternative for eco-conscious shoppers or those that simply want more for their budget.

You can never take away the romantic beauty of natural diamonds. However, there is more to these magnificent stones than their origin and our new range will celebrate this, whilst fully appreciating both worlds ; Natural vs man-made.

How are lab grown diamonds made?

Lab grown diamonds are true diamonds. It is simply the environment that is man-made, but the physical and chemical composition of them is exactly that of a naturally derived stone. Like a natural diamond, lab grown diamonds form from a diamond seed, using one of these methods;
The High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) method whereby the lab environment simulates the identical conditions as nature. This technique cannot be interfered with once started.


The Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) process, which involves the introduction of microwave energy and injected gas. This process can be controlled throughout formation to create the best possible outcome.
The rough stone that is produced is then cut in the same way natural diamonds are and certified using the same laboratory bodies (GIA/IGI).

Why consider them?
