While some people may be hesitant to purchase a lab created gemstone, it is important to note that they are essentially the same molecular structure as a natural stone. The only real difference for these gems is that they have been grown in a controlled lab environment. Indeed, it is difficult for a jeweler to distinguish a lab created diamond from a natural diamond. Moissanite is said to have a fire and brilliance that surpasses a natural diamond and for that reason, they are quite sought after. Another big appeal for buyers of synthetic diamonds and Moissanite is the fact that they are extremely affordable. While a natural diamond will cost in the thousands of dollars if it is of a good quality, a consumer can purchase a lab gem for a few hundred dollars or just a couple of thousand dollars for an exceptional stone and setting. It is no surprise why some grooms may be turning to this new alternative to save for the honeymoon.
