>Below you will see two rings. On the left (from Bluenile.com) is a 1.03carat, D color, IF clarity stone set in a simple 18kt gold solitaire setting. The cost is $24,345. The ring on the right (from Diamond Nexus Labs) is a one carat, D color, IF clarity stone set in a simple 18kt gold solitaire setting. It costs $877. That is a difference of $23,468.

Yes, it is a diamond simulant, but what does that mean anyway? Unless you are a scientist, the only real difference between a mined diamond and our made-in-a-laboratory diamond simulant is the chemistry of the stone. Also, and importantly, a created diamond simulant is a green and conflict free choice, with none of the environmental and ethical issues associated with mined diamonds.

    >What if your ring could cost under $2000 (or far less) and look like it cost $20,000 or more?
    It can if you purchase a Diamond Nexus Labs engagement ring. You will be buying the most exceptional lab created diamond simulant that technology can deliver set in a stunning heavy gold setting at a fraction of the price of a mined stone. Your stone will be graded D color and IF (internally flawless) clarity. The look and feel will be just like a mined diamond. Your friends, your family, and not even your jeweler will be able to tell the difference.

    >So….
    if your jeweler can't tell the difference (and he won't be able to)
    it looks and performs just like a diamond (it does… same sparkle, cuts glass, will last forever)
    it is guaranteed for life never to chip, fade, or crack and even if you lose it we will replace it for free… try getting that guarantee with a mined diamond!
    it is set in the most exquisite, substantial setting (think Cartier and Tiffany, not your local mall jeweler)
    if we as a company are so trusted that Miss Universe wears our crown design and sparkles in our stones to the admiration of a worldwide audience
    And, once on your finger you will be the envy of all your friends…

    Isn't it worth investigating? Don't you have better things to do with the $23,468 you'll save?

    >The high price of gem-grade diamonds, as well as significant ethical concerns of the diamond trade, have created a large demand for materials with similar gemological characteristics, known as diamond simulants or imitations. Simulants are distinct from synthetic diamond, which unlike simulants is actual diamond, and therefore has the same material properties as natural diamond. Enhanced diamonds are also excluded from this definition. A diamond simulant may be artificial, natural, or in some cases a combination thereof. While their material properties depart markedly from those of diamond, simulants have certain desired characteristics—such as dispersion and hardness—which lend themselves to imitation. Trained gemologists with appropriate equipment are able to distinguish natural and synthetic diamonds from all diamond simulants, primarily by visual inspection.

    The most common diamond simulants are high-leaded glass (i.e., rhinestones) and cubic zirconia (CZ), both artificial materials. A number of other artificial materials, such as strontium titanate and synthetic rutile have been developed since the mid 1950s, but these are no longer in common use. Introduced at the end of the 20th century, the lab grown product moissanite has gained popularity as an alternative to diamond.
