Diamond Simulants

Simulated Diamonds

Diamond simulants, also known as simulated diamonds, imitation or fake diamonds are man-made or natural gemstones that look like, or simulate the appearance of natural diamonds, but are made of material that is not carbon-based and do not have the properties of natural diamonds. Some imitation diamonds currently on the market include cubic zirconia, Moissanite, Russian Brilliants, Diamond Nexus, white sapphire and white topaz.
