Here is a small video of the two stones I used in the video "Measuring the Specific Gravity with hydrostatic scale in Gemology ". The CZ is on the right side and show a lot of fire comparing to the diamond. The matter here is that the diamond have only a good cut and symmetry and that play a lot on how the light is travelling into the stone. The objective here is to show that people who do not know about diamonds and gemology can be fooled very easily by a nice imitation and CZ is the best in the market today and cost nearly nothing comparing to a natural diamond. Remember that the CZ have a density nearly twice higher than the diamond and you can feel it in you hand. Sorry for the bad quality of this video...
Nothing says "I love you" on Valentine's Day like a diamond. At least that is what the jewelry stores claim. But not all diamonds come from the same place, a factor that could cost or save you thousands of dollars.
I get so many questions from customers about affordable diamond alternatives from people who say they don't want anything that came out of the ground as their center stone. Some are green-minded and don't like the idea of mining. Others are conflict-conscious concerned about "blood diamonds." While most diamonds here in the US are certified non-conflict, there is still confusion and concern following the movie, so some people just want a clear conscience.
Lab Created Diamonds are identical to mined diamonds sharing the same physical, chemical and optical properties as their natural counterparts, but they are man-made. Materials such as Moissanite, Cubic Zirconia (CZ), White Sapphire, YAG, etc. are simulants that simply attempt to “look” like a diamond.

Perhaps currently the item is too new in the market for an actual second market to be created, but it is worrisome on the research I have done trying to find what natural diamond buyers would pay for lab created diamonds.
