New in the jewelry market are diamonds and other precious gems that are grown by scientists in laboratories.
Why might this be a better option to naturally found gems?
For one, they are much cheaper. They are 100% real diamonds. The only difference: they are man-made!
There are more uses for these gems besides looking pretty. They can even be used to improve cell phones, detect bacteria in water, or make tools like lasers.
