​Synthetic diamonds are simply machine made replica: There is no rarity ! 
Unlimited, out of controll, mass production, realized in a few days or weeks, depending on size.

In comparison to the rarity of unearthed, natural, untreated diamonds, synthetic diamonds are artificial, unnatural surrogate,  
Lab created replica that simply attempt to “lookalike" a natural diamond !

Synthetic diamonds are mostly used to sell as real natural diamonds, usually with the intent to defraud! 
A criminal fact!

Psychological fact: 

The difference between offering a real natural diamond and a synthetic replica:
Offering a natural diamond is a real festive experience!

Negative is the unromantic notion that synthetic diamonds are unlimited produced in some days or weeks, depending of the size.

View the reaction of the person who will receive a man-made, artificial  surrogate diamond, as a precious gift, whithout value.
What a disillusion. 
Not a real diamond, No investment value! 

Cheap! an imitation, usually without the intent to deceive but it will!

Try to resell it!
Comparable to buying a Rolex replica at $ 100. 
The quality is never the same and you will probably never be able to resell it.

Try to resell your replica at auctions by Sotheby's or Christie’s! No way!

Be aware, 
The actual price / value of man made diamonds: 
Prices are falling to zero value!

even this is not the final price and is subject to negotiations!
