Gemologists agree that Diamond Nexus Labs lab-created diamonds are glittering and brilliant because they come closer than any other gem material to matching, often besting the characteristics of mined diamonds.
They are so ostensibly close to mined diamonds that only a trained eye can differentiate the two, often requiring a microscope or loupe, picking out the mined diamond by its blemishes (inclusions). Consequently, many jewelers must use scientific testing equipment to make the distinction. Most people, even trained gemologists, cannot tell the difference with the naked eye.
For serious consideration, Diamond Nexus Labs manufactured diamonds must be compared by using the same properties evaluations as the mined diamond industry—The Legendary Four C's:
Color: The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) appoints color classifications of “D” through “Z.” Colorless diamonds, “Ds,” are extremely scarce in nature and they are representative of the peak of color grades—slight tints of yellow make diamonds less rare, grades “J,” “K,” “L,” & “M.” Diamond Nexus Labs cultured diamonds are always pristine clear transparent “Ds.”
Clarity: This is the degree to which a diamond is free of inclusions that hamper luminosity. Virtually every mined diamond has some internal or external structural flaws. Diamond Nexus Labs man made diamonds simply do not, and meet the rigorous standards of first-class quality.
Cut: The art of diamond cutting has been refined to precise mathematical formulas. A good cut is determined by its light reflecting properties and its light dispersion. The cut actually refers to two separate aspects of a diamond's appearance: (1) shape, and (2) quality of workmanship. Diamond Nexus Labs' synthetic diamonds are precision cut perfectly to the optimum number of facets.
Carat-weight: The size of a diamond is measured in carats; one aspect in the cost of a mined diamond is size. Price is also determined by the Color, Clarity, and Cut—the greater the quality, the higher the per-carat price. Small mined diamonds are more abundant that large ones, so bigger stones command a great per-carat price. A 3-carat diamond of similar quality could be priced 20 times that of a 1-carat diamond. Diamond Nexus Labs flawless man made diamonds are all the same low price per carat. Size never influences the per-carat price!
