Frequently Asked Questions

Does my laboratory-grown diamond have the same type of clarity characteristics as a natural diamond?


Laboratory-grown diamonds have their own distinct characteristics, including inclusions and other features, which allow GIA scientists to distinguish them from natural diamonds. These clarity characteristics are evaluated using the same universally recognized scale and terms as those of natural diamonds — with the number, size, relief, nature, and position of the inclusions being taken into account in evaluating clarity.
