How can you tell if a diamond is a lab grown diamond or an earth mined diamond?

When you purchase a lab-grown diamond from MiaDonna, it will come with either a GCal or IGI diamond grading certificate and every diamond is laser-inscribed by their grading lab as lab grown or lab created. On your grading certificate, you will receive all of the important information about your lab grown diamond such as its color, cut, clarity, and carat size. You’ll also receive all of the measurements, proportions, and identifications about your lab grown diamond.
