Hi all! My boyfriend and I have begun looking at engagement rings (ok, I’ve been looking for a while 😉 but we know for sure we don’t want a land mined diamond. The other options are eco4 or moissanite and wondering if anyone here had compared the two before and wanted to know your thoughts! Thanks!!

A true lab grown diamond will cost about 20-30% less than a natural diamond of the same specs (many online retailers try to pass CZs off as lab diamonds though, so beware). Moissanite is considerably less when it comes to cost. When my Fiance and I started ring shopping, I expressed that I did not want a mined diamond. I ended up getting a lab created diamond from Brilliant Earth. I never really looked into moissanite, so I can’t help you there, but I can say that I could not be happier with the stone I ended up getting!

Yep lab grown diamonds will still be on the pricey side compared to the other alternatives out there like moissanite. I think since the patent has expired on moissanite with C&C there are so many new vendors with great cuts available and afforable pricing.
