Born out of a love for the future and a passion for positive change, Futurae Diamonds is on a mission to create sustainable heirlooms that contribute to a better world.
Diamonds have always been a symbol of luxury and eternal love, but their traditional mining process has come under scrutiny due to its environmental impact and ethical concerns. As a result, lab-grown diamonds are gaining popularity as a sustainable and ethical alternative to mined diamonds.
In an exclusive interview with Greta, our editor, Futurae Diamonds sheds light on the fascinating world of lab-grown diamonds, including how they are made, their unique properties, and what sets them apart from their mined counterparts. Join us as we delve into the world of lab-grown diamonds and learn about the future of sustainable luxury!
Lab-grown diamonds have become a rising star in the world of fine jewellery, thanks to the increasing market demand for ethical and sustainable options. What’s more, clients are now seizing the opportunity to design their own bespoke jewellery using these ethically-sourced gems. From dazzling engagement rings to stunning statement pieces, lab-grown diamonds are fast becoming the preferred choice for clients who want to create their forever pieces.
As the trend continues to grow, the future of diamond jewellery is looking brighter than ever.
While both earth-grown and lab-grown diamonds are physically, chemically, and optically identical to earth-grown diamonds, making them just as valuable and desirable. The differences in how they are formed are fascinating.
Earth-grown diamonds form over billions of years in the earth’s mantle under high-pressure and high-temperature conditions. Lab-grown diamonds are created using a fascinating process that starts with a tiny “seed” from an earth-grown diamond using innovative and cutting edge technology. What’s exciting about this process is that it’s much faster than the millions of years it takes for diamonds to form in the earth. Not only does this make lab-grown diamonds more affordable, but it also means that they can be produced in a more sustainable and ethical way.
The best part? Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds.
It may be surprising to learn that the seed and the process used to create a lab-grown diamond are exactly the same as those used in the earth to form natural diamonds. However, instead of waiting for billions of years for the right conditions to form in the earth’s mantle, scientists have found a way to replicate these conditions in a laboratory setting.

Lab-grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds, making it difficult to differentiate between the two. The universal 4 C’s system applies to lab-grown diamonds, just like it does to mined diamonds.
The 4 C’s play an important role in choosing the right diamond for you: Cut, which evaluates the diamond’s artisanship; Color, which grades the diamond on a spectrum from Colorless to Light; Clarity, which measures the number and visibility of inclusions and blemishes; and Carat weight, which measures the diamond’s physical weight. Additionally, all Futurae Diamonds come with certification to ensure authenticity and origin.
