Since there is no mining cost the benefits are passed on to the consumers and so the lab grown diamonds are almost one third the price of mined diamonds Very high costs of exploration and mining costs makes the mined diamonds almost 2 to 3 times more expensive than lab grown diamonds
Quality of diamonds is comparable to the mined diamonds and graded in the same manner as mined diamonds Quality of diamonds is same as lab grown but more expensive due to high mining costs. The process of quality grading by a certification lab is same for both mined and lab grown diamonds
These are ethically sourced and are conflict free Some of these diamonds are still smuggled out of conflict zones and at times are termed as "Blood Diamonds"
