How do colored lab-grown diamonds attain their color? Are these colors long-lasting? How to identify the right color for my skin that matches my persona? You may ask. Read below this article as we take you through the wonder of these man-made scintillations that are just for everyone!
Hue, Saturation, and Tone
As you shop for vibrant man made diamonds, you’d want to gaze at their hues, tones, or saturation. These terms give them their color impressions ranging among varying levels of that color gradient.
It holds that the higher or greater the hue of the fancy lab-grown diamonds increases their value or price. To lay a perspective, the hues of colored diamonds are primary and secondary. Primary hues include light and the colored shade of the color. For example, light pink and pink may fall under the above category. Secondary hues include the intense and vivid form of the color. So to speak, intense pink and vivid pink.
The hue of a diamond is the color that it takes, and for you choosing the right hue for yourself depends on many factors, including the price, availability, and of course, love of that shade.
Saturation defines the strength of color. Simply put, the saturation of the colored lab-grown diamond is how strong its hue is. It can range from light, and intense to vivid, and depending upon its intensity, the colored fancy diamond is valued. That means the better or greater the saturation, the higher the price.
Intense pink, vivid blue, and intense green, to name a few, are one of the sought-after stones, spreading their charm with the extra bling and exquisiteness they bring to their wearer.
The tone of a man-made diamond sets how light or dark the color of a diamond appears. Again to give it a shape, the hue or shade of your chosen diamond color may come in a range of tones of that color like pink, light pink, dark pink, faint pink, and alike. The tone of a colored diamond closely affects its value, and the higher you go in the gradient chart, the greater the amount of the stone shall be.
Having said that, one thing that makes lab-grown diamonds more appealing and satisfying is their incredibly reasonable values. Because they are made over the ground and not exacted underground like their earthy-colored counterparts, these diamonds save big in their cost of production that excludes mining, labor, and use of heavy machinery, making them reasonable and responsible.
How Are They Made?
Embracing colors have never been more in fashion, and choosing these man-made vibrant wonders gives an edge to your unique style and personality. But the question remains – How do they get their color? Read below to find out!
Lab-grown colored diamonds are formed by placing a carbon seed in hot baking chambers to replicate the natural process of diamond formation. Exposing the seed to tremendous heat and pressure for about a month, the diamond attains its shape and is later cooled, cut, and polished to shine to make it readily available.
Between the heating and pressuring process, the temperature is administered closely and altered to play with the hue of the diamonds being produced. Lab-grown colored diamonds come originally with off-yellow hues, but with the change in temperature and addition of certain elements, the end results are bright and beautiful fancy colored stones.
