So now we've come to diamonds. Nowadays the notion of 'man made diamonds' or 'laboratory grown diamonds' is far from novel and striking. Many people have heard about such diamonds but only a fraction of them find lab grown diamonds trustworthy. The thing is that alongside man made diamonds, which are real diamonds with all the properties of natural ones, there are diamond simulants of quite different nature, structure and composition only visually resembling diamonds at first glance. After thorough examination and testings it becomes apparent that there is a fake stone under brilliant luster. However, diamond simulants are good, say, for decoration your clothing, accessories or footwear, while the originals would be quite expensive for such purpose.
Opposite to them there are man made diamonds that do fit eco-conscious people searching for environmentally friendly alternative to mined stones. They are not cheap as you may first think, but they are less expensive. In today's passion for eco friendliness they managed to win the hearts (and pockets) of young couples who choose to have 'green weddings' with minimal impact on the nature. If you are not still aware of how created diamonds are grown, what properties they possess, how they differ from diamond simulants, and what after all make them a sought-after option after natural diamonds, you can read it in related articles on this blog to form your own viewpoint towards them.
