Employment In Lab Grown Diamond
Lab-grown Diamond History and Facts
When lab-grown diamonds were not invented, natural diamonds were very famous around the globe. Everyone has a fan of the sparkle of Natural Diamonds. But, in the 1950s, General Electric Company created their first lab-created diamond. From here, the scenario of the diamond industry has changed.
Many Diamond experts were told that Lab-grown diamonds are not a form of Natural Diamond. Because lab diamonds cannot sparkle like Natural Diamond. But, in contrast, a Lab diamond sparkles with brilliance and scintillation.
We accept that Lab Diamonds are made in machines or chambers known as Laboratories. But, that’s not concluded that lab diamonds are not natural diamonds. For example, the gemological institute of america said lab-grown diamonds are another type of diamond.
Will the lab-grown diamond industry give employment as Natural Diamonds?
Yes, the lab-grown diamond industry will give employment as Natural Diamonds. Lab-grown Diamonds are the source of 2.5 lakhs of employment in the cutting and polishing process at Surat. This is because 93% of workers are ready to work for Lab-grown Diamond ahead of Natural Diamond rough shortage. After all, Lab Diamonds are types of Natural Diamond. That's why Lab-grown Diamond is called a “Source Of Employment.”
The reason behind the employment capability of the lab-grown diamond industry is skill. If the worker has the skill to craft a rough diamond into a special diamond, then the lab-grown diamond industry warmly welcomes him.
The first thing We have to clarify one thing. Lab Diamonds are grown in the laboratory, while Natural Diamonds are found in the mines. But, both types of diamonds have the exact cutting and polishing process. There’s no difference.
You know that Russia and Ukraine have suffered from Severe Wars. In addition, the United States of America is the major buyer of Natural Diamonds. But, Russia-Ukraine War surges the spark between the United States of America. So, the US banned all the Natural Diamond Rough from Alrosa Mine, Russia.
As a result, the banned decision from the United States directly impacted the Natural Diamond Industry, especially in Surat, Gujarat. Surat’s Natural Diamonds are worldwide famous. But due to the rough Natural Diamond shortage, the business is constantly declining. So, Natural Diamond manufacturers have terminated the diamond workers from employment.
While the other side, lab-grown diamond has held the diamond market from their brilliant appearance. In addition, we must say that 25% of natural diamond manufacturers have turned their businesses into lab-grown diamonds. The problem is that diamond workers have special knowledge in the diamond industry, so they can’t do other jobs except for Diamond related.
