Girls Best Friend or Foe – synthetic diamonds.

Worth is relative to how much you can sell something for. A house for example can generally be purchased and then resold fairly soon, for approximately the same selling price, all conditions same. However, try selling a knock off of a brand or clone of any item and how much can you sell it for.

So what does this have to do with synthetics diamonds.

              • Not using Top Tier Reports
                • All over the internet lab opinions
              • Ask for GIA
          • What will they be worth 10, 20 or 40 years from now.
            • Well I don’t know but my guess is that you will be able to buy a synthetic diamond for 100-150 dollars in the next several decades.
