Does anyone have a lab created Diamond ? If so what do you think of it? Even If you don’t have one what do you think? I was thinking about getting a lab created diamond ring that I can wear when my real rings are being worked on…

Lab created diamonds are even more expensive than mined diamonds. If you are refering to lab created simulents (i.e diamondnexus), they are usually just fancy CZ and not worth the money. I would suggest getting a standard CZ as a stand in if you want the look of a diamond. If not, why not get a great gemstone ring that you can rock as a right hand ring once you get your ring back?

I (will) have one from D.NEA. There is a difference between “lab created diamonds” (aka actual carbon) and “diamond simulants” (aka cubic zirconia or others) so which are you actually interested in? A white lab created diamond will cost about as much as a mined one (or even more, I think), while a colored lab created diamond will cost less than a mined one. I’m guessing you are interested in diamond simulants, because the cost of them would be something more realistic to use as a “temp” stone while you wait for your actual rings to get worked on. A lab created diamond can be legally called a diamond because it is made up of the same chemical/molecular structure as mined diamond, which is carbon. Therefore, it’ll be the same hardness, same density, same everything. Here is some info from the website where my Boyfriend or Best Friend got mine from. http://d.neadiamonds.com/real-synthetic-diamonds
ETA: I will trust missapis when she says that lab ones are more expensive, but just keep in mind that applies only to white diamonds. I am positive that the lab colored ones are cheaper, because that is what I had done my research on since I don’t want a white diamond.

I just got my diamond from D.NEA and it is SO beautiful. I LOVE it. I LOVE it. I LOVE IT! it’s an Asscher cut blue diamond. I could not be happier. Also, I had a great experience buying from D.NEA. They really seem to care about their customer service and it shows.
My diamond is AMAZING. I can’t stop looking at it.
Definitely consider lab grown diamonds…they are stunning–and conflict free (which was important to me).
