I could not speak more highly of Darren. He was very insightful and helpful as I selected and purchased my Fiancé's wedding ring. He made the entire process easy, fun, and insightful. I would recommend Carbon Diamonds to my family and friends in a heart beat!Dallas, TX
When my now husband and I were shopping for an engagement ring we searched at all the usual higher end shops. I wanted something different and not cookie cutter which is hard to find. We heard about Darren and decided to meet with him to discuss our wants. From the first appointment we knew he was the guy!Addison, TX
Darren is a wonderful person, and incredible to work with. He helped me with finding the perfect engagement ring for my fiancé all the while educating me about diamonds as well as the diamond industry. His transparency about how everything works was incredibly refreshing, and I would highly recommend Carbon Diamonds to friends and family.Addison, TX
I normally don’t do the review thing but the customer service was everything you dream of when having something custom made. Darren and Tanner did a great job on my wife’s custom dream ring! Not only did they educate us on the different qualities and shapes of diamonds they also taught us about the 4 C’s! I’m referring these guys to all my friends! Thank y’all for helping us make our dreams come true!McKinney, TX

Yes, "Carbon" diamonds, also known as lab-grown diamonds, are real diamonds. They are made of the same carbon atoms as mined diamonds, arranged in the same crystal structure. Lab-grown diamonds are created using advanced technology that replicates the high-pressure, high-temperature conditions that occur in the Earth's mantle, where mined diamonds are formed.
Lab-grown diamonds are chemically, physically, and optically identical to mined diamonds, and they have the same properties and characteristics as mined diamonds. They are also cut, polished, and evaluated in the same way as mined diamonds.
In recent years, lab-grown diamonds have become more popular as consumers seek out ethical and environmentally responsible alternatives to mined diamonds. They offer a sustainable option for those who want to enjoy the beauty and brilliance of diamonds without contributing to the negative impacts of diamond mining.
Whether a lab-created diamond is better than a mined diamond is a matter of personal preference and depends on a variety of factors, including cost, ethical considerations, and the desired appearance and quality of the diamond.
Here are some things to consider:
Cost: Lab-created diamonds tend to be less expensive than mined diamonds because the production process is controlled and less labor-intensive. This can make lab-created diamonds a more affordable option for those on a budget.
Ethical considerations: Some people prefer lab-created diamonds because they are not associated with the environmental and human rights issues that can be associated with the diamond mining industry.
Quality: Both lab-created and mined diamonds can have high levels of quality and beauty. However, the quality of a diamond depends on factors such as its color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. Lab-created diamonds can be produced with more consistency and control than natural diamonds, which can result in diamonds with fewer inclusions and blemishes.
Lab-created diamonds are manufactured in a laboratory setting, rather than being mined from the Earth. The process of creating a lab-created diamond involves replicating the high-pressure, high-temperature conditions that occur in the Earth's mantle, where natural diamonds are formed.
There are two main methods of creating lab-created diamonds: High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).
In the HPHT method, a small diamond seed is placed in a machine that creates high pressure and high temperature conditions similar to those found in the Earth's mantle. Over time, the seed grows into a full-sized diamond as carbon atoms are added to the surface.
In the CVD method, a diamond seed is placed in a chamber filled with a mixture of gasses. The gasses are then subjected to high heat and a low-pressure environment, causing the carbon atoms to break down and deposit onto the seed. Over time, the carbon atoms build up, forming a lab-created diamond.
Lab-created diamonds are made from the same chemical composition as natural diamonds and have the same physical, optical, and thermal properties. They are often less expensive than natural diamonds and offer an ethical and environmentally responsible alternative for those who want to enjoy the beauty of diamonds without contributing to the negative impacts of diamond mining.
