@ChloeTM2707:  The natural ones are so rare, so I think that’s why they’re thought of as so special. A lot of people in the industry think the lab-created ones look “artificial”– of course, that’s quite subjective. I find them all to be beautiful.

@ChloeTM2707:  I know this wasn’t addressed to me but…

Better is relative. I love my natural alexandrite and wouldn’t trade it for anything however the financial aspect is a big part of any gemstone purchase. Synthetic alexandrite is pretty (costs MUCH less) and has nice colour change but (to me) it seems to lack the same vibrancy or ‘life’ that the natural stone has. The synthetic stones seem almost ‘too perfect’…hard to describe unless you see them side by side. My stone changes colour constantly in every type of light…there is no way to get a picture of all the different variations but when you see it in real life it is not only gorgeous but fascinating as well.

@joya_aspera:  I guess when I say world class, I meant something between the Hope diamond and the common chain jewelry store diamonds (something such as your example).  As in, not commonly sold/available.  I feel like a lot of this debate/argument has do to with definition of “rare diamond.”  I do not feel like the a chain jewelry store in the mall has rare diamonds (which is what I think people are getting hung up about), but if you show me a 2.1 ct. D FL, or a natural red diamond, yes I’m going to say that is rare.

@joya_aspera: 

It was said in the OP that you were trying to clear up a misunderstanding that you kept seeing. I have seen 1 person on the bee with a flawless diamond, and it was under a carat. I have seen maybe 3 fancies. Please point out where you see people talking about those types of stones not being rare and not just talking about jewelry grade diamonds in general. You know, the kind that most people in the world wear?

Can’t find it? Well now you see why you’re being met with so much resistance – the supposed reason for this thread does not exist. You started it for your own reasons, whatever those were.

@joya_aspera:  No no no, you can’t use this thread as the reason for starting the thread. We’re talking about your supposed reasons for starting this thread in the first place. That’s why you’re being met with so much hostility.

When caught in a lie, the best offence is a dense defence.
