Above: Washington Diamonds Founder & Chairman Clive Hill sat down recently at WDC’s labs outside of Washington, DC to explain how the Chemical Vapor Deposition process works to grow real diamonds in the lab – and why WDC’s diamonds are so popular with retailers and distributors.
Readers of this blog and visitors to this website know that Washington Diamonds creates stunning, high-value, genuine diamonds in the lab. Through a beautiful science known as Carbon Vapor Deposition (CVD), we’re able to grow diamonds in just a few weeks that are identical to stones that took millions of years to form in nature.
So what do you call a diamond that didn’t come out of the ground? The mined diamond industry likes to call stones like ours cultured diamonds or synthetic diamonds – but both terms are greatly misleading.
