Lab Created Diamond Simulants
We offer two superior man made diamond simulants: moissanite and the Nexus Diamond™ alternative.
The Nexus Diamond™ alternative is a lab created diamond simulant that, among all simulants, most closely imitates a diamond, with two exceptions—it is absolutely perfect in every way and costs significantly less. Moissanite is another great diamond simulant for an affordable engagement ring. It’s nearly as hard as a diamond and will last a lifetime, guaranteed. With more fire and brilliance than a diamond, it’s an eye-catching center stone that will light up a room.
Both stones are guaranteed free, forever. Not to mention, the price of both diamond simulants can save you up to 90% compared to a mined diamond. Choose an excellent quality stone at a fraction of the cost.
Lab Grown Diamonds
Laboratory-grown diamonds, also known as synthetic diamonds, are chemically identical to mined diamonds, except that they do not come from the earth. Man made diamonds grown in a lab are produced using advanced technology that recreates the natural process of crystallizing carbon. Since they are made of the same material, they exhibit the same chemical and optical properties as mined diamonds—including flaws and grading—because they are in every way, diamonds.
Man made diamonds are better for you because they offer excellent quality at a lower cost, are better for the planet and better for workers because they are not mined. You can build your dream man made diamond engagement ring or purchase a loose lab diamond from our sister company 1215diamonds.com.
Diamonds and Simulants Compared
Man Made Diamonds vs. Mined Diamonds
Man made diamonds have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as mined diamonds. The only difference between the two is origin. Man made diamonds are created in a lab using advanced cutting-edge technology that recreates the natural growing process of crystallizing carbon.
Due to this process, they exhibit the same fire, brilliance and scintillation as mined diamonds depending on their 4Cs grading. Learn more about the differences between lab diamonds vs. mined diamonds.
Man Made Diamonds vs. Diamond Simulants
The difference between real man made diamonds and diamond simulants is chemical composition. Man made diamonds are made almost entirely of carbon, just as mined diamonds, while diamond simulants differ in composition.
There are many different simulants in the market today, all of which vary in physical and optical characteristics. Two of the best diamond simulant options are the Nexus Diamond™ alternative and moissanite. Learn more about diamond simulants vs. lab diamonds.
Are Man Made Diamonds Cheaper?
Yes, man made diamonds are significantly cheaper than mined diamonds. Lab diamonds are up to 50% less than their mined counterparts, making them in every way superior to mined diamonds.
The Choice Is Yours
Man made diamonds and diamond simulants are excellent choices for high-quality fine jewelry and engagement rings, no matter the setting or carat weight.
Both will last a lifetime and beyond while saving you a considerable amount of money. It’s your choice. Choose what you love, and own it.
