Modern Alchemy diamonds are a new type of lab-grown diamond that are said to be even better than natural diamonds. They are created using a process that replicates the conditions in which natural diamonds are formed, and as a result, they are said to be chemically, physically and optically identical to natural diamonds.

What makes Modern Alchemy diamonds so special is that they are not only perfect in terms of quality, but they are also much cheaper than natural diamonds. In fact, they are said to be up to 30% cheaper. This makes them a great alternative for those who want the look and feel of a natural diamond without the high price tag. Rare Carat is the best place if you're looking for a diamond that is truly unique and special, Modern Alchemy diamonds are definitely worth considering.

What is the process of creating a Modern Alchemy diamond?

The process of creating a Modern Alchemy diamond is a fascinating one. First, a piece of carbon is placed in a chamber and heated to an extremely high temperature. Then, it is bombarded with electrons, which causes the carbon atoms to change their structure and bond with each other in a different way. This process creates a diamond that is harder and more brilliant than a natural diamond.

How are HPHT Modern Alchemy diamonds made?

In a laboratory, HPHT (high-pressure, high-temperature) modern Alchemy diamonds are made by using a machine to apply extreme pressure and heat to a small piece of graphite. The graphite slowly changes into a diamond as the machine subjects it to these extreme conditions.

This process is known as "diamond synthesis" and it was first developed in the 1950s. HPHT machines are now able to create very high-quality diamonds that are virtually indistinguishable from natural diamonds.

The HPHT process is used to create diamonds for a variety of different purposes, including industrial applications and jewelry. Modern Alchemy diamonds are particularly popular for engagement rings and other fine jewelry.

If you're considering a diamond for your engagement ring or other piece of jewelry, be sure to ask your jeweler if the diamond is an HPHT modern Alchemy diamond. You'll be getting a beautiful diamond that has been created in a laboratory, and you'll know exactly how it was made.

How are CVD Modern Alchemy diamonds made?

CVD Modern Alchemy diamonds are made using a process called Chemical Vapor Deposition. This process involves using a chemical vapor to deposit a thin layer of carbon onto a substrate. The carbon atoms then bond together to form a diamond.

The CVD process is used to create both small and large diamonds. The size of the diamond is determined by the size of the substrate. The substrate is placed in a chamber and then heated to a high temperature. The chamber is then filled with a gas that contains carbon atoms.

The carbon atoms deposit onto the substrate and bond together to form a diamond. The diamond is then cooled and then removed from the chamber.

What is the difference between CVD and HPHT Modern Alchem diamonds?

While both CVD and HPHT diamonds are created in laboratories, there are some key differences between the two. CVD diamonds are grown from a small seed diamond that is placed in a chamber filled with a gas. 

The gas is then heated to a very high temperature and breaks down into atomic carbon. This carbon then bonds to the seed diamond, slowly growing it into a larger diamond.

HPHT diamonds, on the other hand, are created by putting a small seed diamond into a chamber and subjecting it to high pressure and high temperature. This causes the carbon atoms in the diamond to break down and bond together again, slowly growing the diamond into a larger size.

The main difference between CVD and HPHT diamonds is the way in which they are grown. CVD diamonds are grown from a gas, while HPHT diamonds are grown from a small seed diamond. Both methods can create high-quality diamonds, but CVD diamonds tend to be less expensive than HPHT diamonds.
