While mined diamonds of similar quality might carry a steeper price tag, it's also important to remember that the gold quantity used in the design can also influence the final cost. More intricate settings with a higher gold content will naturally cost more, regardless of the diamond type.

Key differences between lab-grown and natural diamonds: 

Things to check while purchasing a Lab-grown diamond earrings: 

  • Certificate of authenticity - with diamond imitations floating in the market, it's essential to have a lab-tested authenticity certificate from reputable institutions like IGI, GIA and SGL for your lab-grown diamond earrings. At least you'll know that it's the actual diamond and the sparkle is real! 

  • 4 C’s - just like the mined diamonds, the price and value of lab diamonds absolutely depends on the cut, carat, colour, and clarity of the gemstone. The better these aspects are, the more sparkling your jewellery will be. 

  • Jeweller’s reputation - online jewellers like Angara, are often concerned about customer experience and their reviews. Hence, chances are high that they would provide you clarity and transparency at every step. 

  • The amount of gold involved - the price difference between lab-grown and mined diamond earrings might be smaller in some cases. This can be due to the amount of gold used. When compared separately, lab grown diamonds are typically priced at 40-60% less than mined diamonds of the same quality. 

  • Making charges - compare making charges (jeweller's crafting fee) across different retailers to get the best deal.

  • Resale policy - though lesser than natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds do have their re-save value based on the 4 C’s. Check your jeweler's policy on repurchasing or offering exchange value.
