Why Choose Natural Diamonds?
Characteristics of Natural Diamonds
Naturally mined diamonds are a sparkling rarity. These stones are unearthed after billions of years of creation by geological pressures deep inside our planet. This extensive process is also what leads them to be the hardest known natural stones on Earth, fantastic for tools and beautiful jewelry alike. Although diamond recovery has steadily decreased over the years, natural diamonds are mostly so valuable because of the labor required to mine them, their one-of-a-kind beauty, and the fact that there are only so many diamonds that can be mined before there are no more left. The stunning beauty of a natural diamond makes any piece of jewelry they are used in unique and special.
Natural vs Lab-Created
When shopping for a piece of diamond jewelry, especially an engagement ring or wedding band, knowing your options and how they will affect your item is crucial. There are natural diamonds that were mined from the Earth, and then there are laboratory created diamonds. Lab-created diamonds are chemically, physically, and virtually visually indistinguishable from mined stones, but with a few differences that are not always considered during the buying process. Lab-created diamonds can be identically reproduced while natural diamonds are always unique. The resale value of natural diamond will hold up when it is time to upgrade years down the road. The same cannot be said for lab-created.
Why Choose a Natural Stone?
While assurance that you’ve invested well into your diamond is important, natural diamonds’ biggest appeal seems to be the stones’ rarity. Knowing that your love is represented by a distinctive stone from a finite source adds a romantic, luxurious quality to the story of your ring. Natural diamonds are older than life on Earth, a beautiful symbol that your love will go on forever. A natural diamond breathes unique life into a piece of jewelry that can be passed down through generations. The resale value of a natural stone only adds to its intrigue and likelihood that it will become a family heirloom.
