How Do You Make Fancy Colored Lab Grown Diamonds?

Celebrated for their dazzling clarity and brilliance, diamonds harbor a mesmerizing secret—a kaleidoscope of colors lies within, waiting to be discovered. Far from the classic white, these gems come alive in a vibrant spectrum of hues, from the sunny yellows that capture the warmth of sunlight to the deep blues that mirror the ocean’s heart and the romantic pinks that tell tales of love and mystery.

Mined diamonds with these pigments can be hard to find and quite expensive, but vibrantly colored lab grown diamonds can be created in controlled conditions. This allows you to find your ideal jewelry with the exact diamond color, cut, clarity and carat weight of your dreams. 

Learn how lab grown fancy colored diamonds are made and explore Grown Brilliance’s collection of pink, blue and yellow stones. 

The Science of Color in Diamond

While diamonds are often pictured as sparkling, clear gems, they dance across a canvas of colors. This rainbow spectrum emerges from minute imperfections or unique shifts in the diamond’s structure as it forms, weaving a story of beauty and complexity that defies the ordinary.

As a natural diamond forms, it is infused with trace elements of atoms or minerals that interact with the carbon that makes up its chemical structure. For example, nitrogen bonds with carbon to create yellow diamonds, while boron creates a light blue cast to the diamond. 

Pink or red stones, the rarest natural colored diamonds, get their stunning tints from intense heat and underground pressure, which changes their crystal structure, creating a blushing tint when light shines through.

How Do Lab Grown Diamonds Get Their Color?

Lab grown colored diamonds get their color from controlled adjustments in the manufacturing process. Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) uses a sealed chamber to grow a diamond by depositing carbon atoms on a base layer. By altering elements in the CVD reactor during the growth process, like gas mixtures and pressure and temperature, scientists can mimic the natural conditions that create colored diamonds underground. This precise control allows for the creation of diamonds in a wide range of colors. 

The following table shows how different conditions and elements can lead to specific diamond colors for use in exquisite lab grown diamond rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces:
