Are they Artificial Diamonds?
Absolutely not!! They are very much real diamonds the only difference being grown in a laboratory. They have the same chemical, optical and physical properties as mined diamonds. The only difference between a mined diamond and lab-grown diamonds is one is formed below the earth crust and other is formed above earth crust in laboratories.
The other confusion is a lot of people get confused between Synthetic Diamonds and simulant diamonds. Synthetic diamonds are Lab-Grown Diamonds, CVD Diamonds, HPHT Diamonds or Manmade Diamonds which are real diamonds. Simulant Diamonds includes cubic zirconia CZ’s and moissanite. Simulants diamonds are very different from real diamonds and they don’t have any properties of diamonds, neither sparkle nor hardness.
