Lab grown diamonds, lab created diamonds, and synthetic diamonds are all terms used to describe diamonds that are made in a laboratory. They are "synthesized" from the same organic material as its natural mineral counterpart.
A lab grown diamond is made from the mineral carbon - just like a natural diamond. Scientists have been synthesizing lab grown gemstones since the 1800s and have been perfecting it ever since!
Here's a quick comparison: You can bring in ice from the Arctic or you can create ice inside your freezer. Both are ice - one is created naturally and the other created in a synthetic environment.

Lab-Grown diamonds are not simulants (Cubic Zirconia).
They are diamonds created by scientists in a lab from rough crystals using HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) or CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition).
In short: scientists re-create the environment and conditions that exist in Mother Nature. As a result, the diamond still have variation in color and clarity, just as the earth produces a range of colors and clarities.
