Are simulated diamonds real?
A simulated diamond looks similar to a diamond and its physical and chemical properties are different to a diamond and are much cheaper than a regular diamond. A simulated diamond is a lot cheaper than a natural diamond and you can buy one that is the same size of a natural one at a much lower price. However, the price depends on the 4 Cs; cut, carat, clarity and color. ...

To become a jeweler, do you have to know about Simulated Diamonds?
Yes, you do. As a jeweler, you might very well be called upon to decide whether or not a particular diamond is natural or simulated. ...
What is the best simulated diamond of the man made diamonds which is the best so far?
If talking about "simulated" and NOT real synthetic / cultured / laboratory-grown diamond (which has the same properties of natural diamonds) I think the best in fire and brilliance is Moissanite, others are considered cheaper fakes. ...
What is the difference of a diamond and diamond aura?
Diamond Aura is the name of a SIMULATED diamond, NOT a synthetic diamond. Natural diamonds and synthetic (cultured) diamonds are identical in being made of pure carbon highly compressed with a hardness of 10. Cultured diamonds cost from 2/3 to 3/4 the price of natural diamonds. SIMULATED diamonds are NOT made of pure carbon. Cubic Zirconium (zirconium dioxide with hardness 8.5) and Mossanite (silicon carbide with hardness 9.25) are simulated diamonds and cost vastly less than natural or cultured diamonds. Diamond Aura stones...

Is a Simulated diamond a real diamond?
Simulated diamonds are also known as diamond simulants and include things like cubic zirconia (CZ), moissanite, and YAG. They can also include some natural clear gemstones like white sapphire, white zircon or even clear quartz. Simulated diamonds do not possess the chemical and physical properties of actual diamonds, so they generally sell for a relatively low cost.

Asked in The Difference Between
How can you tell the difference between simulated diamond rings and real diamond rings?
The difference can be seen using an item called a jeweler's loupe. It is a magnifying glass that shows the imperfections in a lab based diamond and one that has been made over thousands of years. ...

Asked in Diamante
What is the best a simulated diamond or a synthetic cultured laboratory grown diamond?
The best type of synthetic diamond would most likely be Cubic Zircona, a popular fake jewel that is much cheaper than diamond and unlike other fake jewels it will not change color or become tinted by an outside source for very extended periods of time. ...

When did simulated in the acronym laser become stimulated?
It has never been "simulated". The phrase has always been "light ampllfication by stimulated emission of radiation". The emission in question is real, not simulated. ...
How does actual texture differ from simulated yexture?
Actual texture has real surface quality... It has a bit of relief... You can feel actual texture with your fingertips. Simulated texture is just that... simulated. It is two dimensional. ...
