Time to reveal fact from fiction when it comes to one of the most controversial products in today’s jewelry industry today. Lab grown diamonds have not only made their debut, they are here to stay. To debunk all the myths that have recently been put out there, Wedding Day is here to show you just how cool and better lab grown diamonds are and why ECO 4 diamonds, exclusively at Wedding Day, should be on the top of your list as a choice when shopping for that perfect diamond.
We’ll give it to you straight.
Fiction: Lab grown diamonds are made in a microwave.
Fact: That microwave statement may sound quite familiar right now and it couldn’t be farther from the truth. ECO 4 lab grown diamonds are created using a very sophisticated scientific process that took decades to perfect. (Scientists have found a way to duplicate the earth’s process, which took millions of years, and speed it up into a few short weeks.)
Fiction: Lab grown diamonds are fake like cubic zirconia or other simulants.
Fact: ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamonds are diamonds. Period. They are physically, optically and chemically identical to earth mined diamonds. The main difference is where they come from. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If they do, they are simply misinformed of what an ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamond truly is.
Fiction: Earth mined diamonds hold their value and are a good investment.
Fact: Earth mined diamonds, when purchased at retail price, have never been good investments. If you tried to sell your diamond, you would easily lose 50-90% of its value. But remember, buying a diamond as an investment is not the reason you should purchase one in the first place. A diamond is meant to symbolize the love you have for each other. (Makes no difference where it came from.) If you are purchasing a diamond now to set in a piece of jewelry, selling it for a profit down the road should not be your first thought.
Fiction: ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamonds will have no value in the future so you shouldn’t buy one today.
Fact: Our ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamonds will NEVER lose their value. You will always be able to trade in your ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamond at Wedding Day for another one and you will get every dollar you spent towards a new one. The same holds true for our earth mined diamonds. Nothing’s changed.
Fiction: Lab grown diamonds are not as beautiful and will not hold their sparkle like an earth mined diamond.
Fact: ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamonds are grown from the finest diamonds on earth and are considered type IIa diamonds. Out of all the earth mined diamonds available, only 2% of them are type IIa. But 100% of ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamonds ARE type IIa. They are also cut and polished the exact same way an earth mined diamond is but in most cases, when compared side by side, you will see that ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamonds are actually more beautiful and have more fire than an earth mined diamond. And because they are diamonds, they will last forever.
Fiction: Diamond mining has little to no effect on our planet or human race.
Fact: Diamond mining is incredibly destructive to our planet. Just think, there are approximately 25 million carats of diamonds that are mined from the earth, cut and polished every year. That amount of excavation would bury an area larger than the state of West Virginia 1 foot deep. And on top of the earth’s destruction, many of these mines are in areas of the world where civil wars and other conflicts are funding these efforts, making it impossible to uphold basic human rights to the citizens living there. With ECO 4 lab grown diamonds, Wedding Day is able to step back from these challenges and offer an alternative that will in turn help guide us in taking better care of our planet and the people that live here.
Bottom line and most important: Your love is pure, and so should the history and origin of your diamond. Our exclusive ECO 4 Lab Grown Diamonds are just that.
