Oopsie, my bad KatyElle I just saw Miss Tunacupcake’s comment (copied and pasted below) and felt the urge to respond 🙂 No biggie.

KatyElle is right. As of now a white lab created diamond doesn’t exist.

CZ is not sturdy, and it’s prone to cloudiness, especially after some time.

OP, to answer your question, a good friend of mine has a ring from Diamond Nexus. She’s had it for almost 4 years now and it still looks great. She really loves it. It still has crazy sparkle to it and it’s not cloudy from what I’ve seen. I can’t tell a difference from when she got it to now, still a stunning ring.

@FutureMrsOToole: DNL has not had a lot of favorable reviews.  I saw a lot of pictures of DNL stones on the betterthandiamond boards and decided not to go with them.  And they had a lot of complaints on the BBB.  That being said, I totally commend your choice… maybe you can return it & go with another company that does diamond coating.  Asha Diamonds does, and so does Quorri (where we purchased my rings) or you could always go with Moissanite.

I’m only saying this because DNL’s reputation is not very good, though I like the concept of what you’re trying to do.

I have had mine since November and been wearing it since then, it needs to be cleaned on a regular basis otherwise it doesn’t shine as much.  I love mine and love the fact that I could get a 1.5 carat stone and not pay an arm and a leg.

don’t do it!  [content removed for false information]  I have earrings that I am mildly satisfied with (but would have NEVER spent $250 on, especially once I compared them to some cheap CV earrings I already had; it just seemed simpler to not return them, dumb now I realize!) and a 3c pendent that the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 🙁

 

Since you are clearly a person who is open to other options, investigate ENHANCED MOISSANITE! That is what I ended up getting for my e-ring, and I LOVE it and have not regretted it for a moment!

 

 

 

edit: oops, sorry, I didnt’ read close enough to realize you already had it… :-/

I would just watch it over time. There is nothing wrong with having a CZ ring, but DNL does not have a good reputation right now because of the lawsuits against them. Many many people were lead to believe that they were buying lab created diamonds, but it’s just CZ with a special coating.

I don’t know too much about Asha, so I don’t want to give any opinions. I know Asha uses a diamond coating to get it’s look. I haven’t heard about Asha clouding over time.

I don’t have much knowledge on this topic. All I’ve heard is the same as mentioned above, lawsuits and whatnot. I would be careful, but if you’ve got it and you love it then who cares? Don’t they have some sort of policy where they’ll replace the stone if it clouds or something anyway?

@Tunacupcakes: I believe apollo diamonds creates actual full carbon diamonds completely in a lab: http://www.apollodiamond.com/ 

Stones for jewellery only go up to .7 ct though.

The funny thing is when you search google for “apollo diamond revews” the sponsored link is for DNL “Buy Better Than Apollo – Superior Quality Diamond Simulants

*must…find…access…to a real computer…phone…not sufficient for the response I want!!*

 

Ugh!

 

Dying over here. I’ll just echo a couple things already said. Yes there are lab-created SYNTHETIC diamonds,  [content removed for false information] , owned by a convicted felon, I might add. Of course there is nothing wrong with choosing a CZ, but there is something very wrong indeed with paying hundreds of dollars for one because you’re being lied to about what it is.

@kyle.blades: 

Kyle!  Thanks for chiming in on the conversation.  I was actually glad to see you post.  You really are on the media about DNL.  Thank you for your complete follow up with my ring.  I love it and like to share that with as many buget-wise eco-friendly brides as possible.  So many people I know that gotten rings from DNL because of our rave reviews.  There isn’t a single person who isn’t satisfied that we have sent your way. 

I wish that outside of all the bad media that you guys recieve people would learn from the source.  The entire chemical make up is posted, and the compairison chart is out there as well. 

Thank you for standing behind your amazing product!
