    The exact same thing, where I could get a top quality stone at almost half the price? Hell no, I’ve never regretted it!

     

    Pro tip, check out D.NEA Diamonds, by far the best selection and pricing I’ve seen, plus an upgrade program which is rare to find with lab created stones.

    If I wanted a diamond, I would only consider lab! No regrets

    My ring is Brilliant Earth lab grown diamonds. I love it and have no regrets! My center stone is also GIA certified. Overall, LG diamonds are cheaper than natural mined diamonds. Brilliant Earth’s stones are conflict free and the metals are recycled too.

    My ring is mined diamonds, but I’d also be totally fine with lab diamonds. My ring isn’t custom made it was in stock at the jewelry store. The ring I fell in love with just happed to have mined diamonds. If the ring I fell in love with happened to already have lab diamonds or white sapphires I’d have gotten that just the same. I don’t think it’s a big deal as long as they are good quality. My only stipulation was no cz because they won’t last a life time they get cloudy or discolored pretty quick in the grand scheme of things.

    I’ll never regret the fact that my Fiance saved thousands of dollars and got me a gorgeous ring. While I absolutely think mined diamonds are beautiful, the cost is something I cannot justify. People are always taken so aback by lab diamond ring!

    I’d love to have a lab diamond if more companies started cutting OECs! …Grrr. (don’t think I’d regret one if I had one of those) 😊

    I don’t have a lab-created diamond, but I do have lab-created sapphires in my ring.  Personally, I don’t even remember that they are lab-created now that it’s been on my finger for a while… all I notice is how beautiful they are!

    I have a 9x7mm oval solitaire moissy from True gem and I regret it. I’m not sure if it’s bc I know it’s not a real diamond or because of the way it looks sometimes. It doesn’t always give off the look of a diamond for me, sometimes looks fake like one of those rings you get from dispenser. Granted, I wouldn’t be able to afford a earth mined diamond of the same size but I’m perfectly fine with that. I think my biggest thing is, the money I spent on this ring I regret I could have gotten a real diamond of a size of .85.

    No, l don’t have one, but only because only mined were freely available at the time. I would certainly choose a lab created now. I don’t like simulants , but lab created seems different somehow.

    I’m sorry you regret your ring, but a lab diamond is not a moissanite. A lab diamond is a molecularly and chemically identical to a diamond from the earth, it was just literally created in a lab. It doesn’t sparkle or look any different than an earth diamond.
