Default Synthetic Vs. Real Diamonds

You as a woman or a man, would you be OK with a Synthetic Diamond instead of a real diamond?

Women, would you be ok with a synthetic diamond for an engagement ring.

It's late and I can't sleep so I am doing research on mostly Synthetic Diamonds. HA HA!

I am totally fine with synthetic diamonds. Heck, I didn't even get an engagement ring and my wedding ring was from Walmart. It's more symbolic to me than anything and it doesn't matter to me what it is made of. Most people that see my ring don't even notice that the diamonds on my ring aren't super high quality. I think they are real diamonds, but if u found out they were fake it wouldn't bother me in the least.

Eta: the only thing that would bother me a bit would be if a guy bought me a diamond ring and told me they were real and then I later found out they were fake and not because they are fake, but because I wouldn't be happy being lied to about it in the first place.

I found this cool website that deals with synthetic diamonds. I probably will be browsing it all night.

There synthetic gems & there are look a likes. Most people think of the look a likes. Real synthetic or lab created gems have the same molecular structure & are "real" gems, they just didn't come out of the ground that way.

Either way they're fine. My cousin owns a diamond mine in the Yukon. DeBeers keeps trying to offer him craploads of money to keep his diamonds warehoused, and he keeps threatening to flood the market with cheap diamonds. lol. They're only expensive because the market is so controlled. He has one they pulled out that was the size of a volleyball.

Personally I like the other semi precious stones, like Chilean lapis lazuli and labradorite. Good labradorite is so pretty. In person it almost has a subtle halo.

I personally do not like diamonds in any fashion and I would be a bit displeased to get a diamond ring, I much prefer emerald or sapphire. But which style I was given would not change my opinion of the person giving it to me.

I am 100% OK with lab grown gems.

I also probably wouldn't want a diamond engagement ring anyway, but if for some reason I was receiving a diamond piece, (earrings or something I might like), I don't think it'd make a difference to me.
