@2013septemberbride:  are you talking about rhinestones?  There’s usually a mirrored backing on those.

Sometimes you can’t tell the difference. That is why jewelers have a device they use. Most of the Cz’s I have look cloudy over time, but then again some diamonds are cloudy too.

@2013septemberbride:  Here is one trick to help you identify a CZ (only works for round stones): If you can look straight down from the top and see the culet at the bottom, it’s a CZ. You can not see the culet of a diamond by looking down into it. (The culet is the point on the bottom/underside)

@2013septemberbride:  I’m definitely not one of those people who claim to always be able to spot the difference between moissy, CZ, and diamond. But in your picture the large stone is stark white, which most diamonds are not. It also has less zones of contrast and depth, which are traits indicative of diamond.

That’s the only thing I can really notice, but then again there are such things are super stark white diamond with very few contrast zones which results in the look of total illumination as opposed to deep contrast zones.

@2013septemberbride:  typically natural mined gemstones are cool to the touch. For instance if you feel a genuine amethyst bead bracelet, the stones will be cool. Glass or plastic beads will not be cool.

yikes, I didn’t know there are “plastic” diamondlike siim stones set in rings Surprised . Thought they were only  like CZ or moissanite..but when ya think about it, plastic makes sense.

From a distance/sometimes even up close think it would be difficult to tell any sim imo. Although sure some people would know. Think more commonly people “know” if it’s likely not a real diamond  based on the size (& perfection?) of said “diamond” in conjunction with who is wearing it.

What do you mean by “plastic”?  Do you mean it literally, like stuff like this:

 

Or do you mean any white stone that’s not a diamond?
