I think the only opinion that should matter is the opinion of you and your Fiance.

For my engagement ring I prefered a natural stone forged through the forces of the earth rather than the forces of mankind. I just think a nature made stone is a more fitting representation of my relationship. For jewelry with less symbolism I still prefer natural stones, but a lab stone would do in a pinch.

If it bothers you and your Fiance, don’t do it.  If it doesn’t then relax and know that a vast majority of people cannot tell the difference.

I don’t care how a stone is made. “Lab made” means nothing to me. For that matter, “Ethical” or “Fair trade” Or “Natural” or “Hand mined” or any other possible word that can be used to describe a stone, hand harvested or lab created. They mean nothing to me.

I’ll go, “Ooh, pretty ring.” and move on with my life.

I’ll bite.  I don’t care if something is lab created, as long as we both like it and it is affordable.

Personally, I prefer natural stones and would not pay 5k for lab created jewelry.  But that’s the great thing about people.. they have different tastes and different preferences.  If you love it, that’s all that matters.

@Hyperventilate:  Agreed.  I don’t care if a stone is “natural” or “lab made”.  Besides, lab created stones possess identical chemical and physical characteristics to the naturally occurring variety.

I like the idea of having a natural stone, just me.

@BrittanyE:  Shop around to see if it’s a reasonable price.

I don’t really have a preference! If I like it and if Fiance likes it, and wants it to represent our relationship and our commitment to one another, than that’s all that matters.

Paying 5K for that ring is quite ridiculous if it is man-made, imo.

But I have no problem with man made stones. I own one for my e-ring and love it. I just wouldn’t pay so much for it.
