Yes, they are real diamonds.
Yes, they are real diamonds, and they are certified by all the major gem laboratories in the world. Lab grown diamonds consist of carbon atoms arranged in the diamond crystal structure. According to GIA - the world's foremost authority on diamonds, coloured stones, and pearls - lab grown diamonds are identical to their natural counterparts as they are made of the same material as natural diamonds, exhibiting the same optical and chemical properties.
Simulants do not have the same chemical and physical properties as diamonds, and merely imitate the appearance of a diamond. The most well-known simulant is cubic zirconia, which is a crystal form of zirconium oxide, and moissanite, which is made of silicon carbide. Simulants do not have the same hardness and longevity as real diamonds which last forever. You can find simulants in costume jewellery. Be aware of companies that use the term SIMULANTS to take advantage of uneducated customers. On the other hand, lab grown diamonds are REAL DIAMONDS.
No they are not. Simulants are not diamonds. Be wary of websites such us “DiamondNexus.com” those types of websites sell “diamond simulants” which use very clever writing such as “round brilliant” to mislead customers. They are not real diamonds.
The first ever lab created diamonds started in the 1950’s by General Electric, however they were only being used for industrial purposes due to the low quality in colour and clarity. Over the past few decades scientists and laboratories around the world started improving the methods. But only until just a few years ago they were able to start producing gem quality diamonds, which are now available to the market.
The diamond tester will positively identify it as a diamond. They both have the exact same composition. A note of caution, using a moissanite tester will give a false reading, to find out more check our lab diamonds guide page.

Because only round diamond shapes have an agreed pre-determined set of standard rules. While all the other shapes can vary, for example an oval shape can be made wide or elongated, and there is no right or wrong, it comes down to personal preference. While round shape can only be round therefore a standard was set and adopted by everyone.
Yes they are! As opposed to mined diamonds, only lab grown diamonds can be guaranteed to be ethical diamonds and 100% conflict free. It is extremely difficult to know the origin of a mined diamond, especially when it goes through many sets of hands after leaving the mine.
YES, and they are the only diamonds that are genuinely ethical. Do not fall into the misinformation trap set by sellers of mined diamonds. They will falsely claim that the mined diamonds they are selling are ethical. ONLY lab diamonds are truly ethical.
YES, and they are the only diamonds that qualify as eco-friendly. Do not be swayed by the marketing hype from sellers of mined diamonds arguing that their products are eco-friendly. On the contrary, it is impossible to mine a diamond without destroying the environment, ecosystems and human settlements around it.
YES, and it is essential to be aware that ONLY lab diamonds can truly ever be 100% conflict free. No diamond that is mined can ever be certified as fully conflict free with any degree of certainty due to the impossibility of tracking a mined diamond to its source mine.

NO, they are not. And be very wary of claims otherwise that sellers of mine diamonds heavily advertise. Their marketing is simply false and biased to sway into buying their products.
NO, they are not since a mined diamond being eco-friendly is an impossibility. The term mining itself already explicitly denotes environmental and land destruction in order to extract something from the ground. This process is always, without exception, destructive and has cascading adverse environmental and ecological effects.
Unfortunately, there is no way to tell 100% if they are or not. It is impossible to really know were a diamond was originally found, unless you go and dig it up from the ground yourself. Instead, you are expected to take their word for it, which has been the very same reason why blood diamonds keep on flowing to the general market.
