Lab diamonds are growing in popularity and have become the top choice for thousands of consumers. Head of Product for Ritani, Ria Papasifakis, explained in a live Varney & Co business segment that lab-grown diamonds have become an "affordable entryway" for young couples when purchasing their first engagement rings or even luxury jewelry.

In a recent announcement from MarketsandMarkets™, the projected CVD Lab-grown Diamonds Market will be worth $15.9 billion by 2027. 

"As technology improves and consumers further accept lab-grown diamonds as an option, we are seeing these types of diamonds are growing in demand as well," said Ria Papasifakis, Head of Product at Ritani.
