Tips to buy lab-grown diamond rings

Buying a lab-grown diamond ring is no different from buying natural diamond rings but you need to know what you are looking for. Just like natural diamonds, lab diamonds are also evaluated under the 4C grading range- Color clarity, Cut, and Carat. Before heading towards the store, you should have a budget for when you want to invest in the diamond and you must know that the price of a lab-grown diamond ring is almost 30% lesser than the natural diamond ring so set the budget accordingly.
And since the price is lesser, you can go for a larger-sized diamond at the same price. Lab-grown diamonds might be affordable but they are not different from natural diamonds, and as a layman, you cannot differentiate between the two. The only difference between the two is that natural or mined diamonds are formed after hundreds of years and lab-grown diamonds are made in several weeks. 
Black Diamond Engagement ring is also available made of lab-grown diamonds. All you need to do is, take out a day to visit Hatton Garden.
