     I love my oval and unlike a few posts, have had excellent customer service with Brilliant Earth.  I think you can’t go wrong with the last two! Beautiful!

    Hey!!! I’m in pretty much the same boat, although looking for a 3ct oval. I don’t know the difference though between moissanite and lab grown? Could someone help me out in simple layman’s terms?!

    A laboratory  grown diamond is a diamond, corsisting of exactly the same elements as a natural mined diamond, only it’s grown in a laboratory. 

    Moissanite is a different stone altogether, the original was natural but that stock has long since gone. Moissanites are now all lab created. The are often called diamond stimulants because they  do resemble diamonds to a degree.

    In terms of price, the most expensive is a natural diamond, then a lab grown diamond, then a moissanite.

    isitalladream :  seems like the last 2 stones are no longer available? Maybe you bought one of them already? I’m not sure what the stats are for #1. Is this from a reputable Amazon seller? I would say overall I’d go with #2. It’s beautiful, but I think there is a carbon filament at the top of the stone? Could be a lighting artifact but I hear James Allen has a good return policy if it turns out there is something there and it bothers you.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to explain. Does anyone know where to find reputable lab grown diamonds in Ireland or the UK?
