Ideally, this should require no telling. But David Hollanders recently pointed out a across a campaign from a lab grown diamond manufacturer which says that "lab grown diamonds are not synthetic diamonds, but real diamonds." That statement is FALSE.
I am writing this post to clarify the point.
Do not fall for such marketing gimmicks.
Any diamond that is not mined naturally, but is man made is NOT A REAL DIAMOND.If it is not a natural diamond, it is a fake. Please do not confuse the two. Moreover some of these man made diamonds are accompanied by GIA/IGI lab grading reports. So make sure you know what you are buying!
