Unlike natural diamonds, the price of lab grown diamonds does not increase exponentially with carat size. For instance, a round-cut, 2-carat natural diamond starts at about $14,000. You can get a lab-grown diamond of the same carat size for about half the cost. But if you value the rarity of naturally occurring diamonds, then go for one. It will be great investment as well, as the value of mined diamonds only increases with time.
Lab and mined diamonds look similar and have the same quality, range of shapes and carat weights. Mined diamonds form under the surface of earth over billions of years, naturally, and therefore, unique and rare. They are priced 40% higher than their lab counterparts but their resale value only increases with time.
