They are not really cheaper, except in fancy colour.  I have some fancy pinks and they were tons cheaper than natural pink diamonds of the same colour.  And mine are ideally cut, which is a great benefit of lab diamonds.  But the whites are similar in price.  Gemesis is another producer of lab diamonds, as well as Chatham.  Mine are from Chatham.

I think the other advantage is that you don’t have to worry whether they were ethically sourced (no worries that it could be a blood diamond). 

Main downside is if you want a huge diamond. I think they have trouble making them larger than a carat. 

Otherwise they are molecularly identical to “natural” diamonds and no one could tell the difference.
