LAB-GROWN DIAMONDS IN CALGARY
Lab-grown diamonds are gaining popularity, and have become a viable alternative for many people. Alberta Diamond Exchange proudly offers our clients the versatility of choosing mined or lab grown diamonds in Calgary, AB.
Unlike mined diamonds, which are formed deep within the earth’s crust, lab-grown diamonds are created with unique technological processes: High Pressure-High Temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD). Both of these methods produce lab-grown diamonds with identical chemical composition, crystal structure, physical, and optical properties as mined diamonds. With the advancement of technology in recent years, lab-grown diamonds are visually identical to mined diamonds and have become increasingly challenging to detect without the use of highly specialized equipment.

Why Choose A
Lab-grown diamonds are created without the need for mining. They are produced in carbon-neutral settings, create no land, wildlife or community displacement, and do not contribute to groundwater pollution. One of our partners, Diamond Foundry, is the world’s first laboratory to produce diamonds in a carbon-neutral setting with a strong focus on the environment.
Because lab-grown diamonds are created in a laboratory, you can always be assured that your diamond is conflict-free.
Lab-grown diamonds are typically 20-40% less expensive than mined diamonds of the same quality. This means that for the same cost as a mined diamond, you can get a larger or higher-quality diamond.
Our lab-grown diamonds, just like our mined diamonds, all come independently certified to ensure they are graded by exceptional international standards.
Buying a lab-grown diamond is the same as buying a mined diamond. Alberta Diamond Exchange consultants will help you find the best options to consider based on your budget and parameters.
