Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.

Why do diamonds hold so much allure and romanticism?  And why do women love them so much?  They have been known and valued for over 3, 000 years.  They are the hardest things known to mankind, the best conductor of heat, obviously a special kind of substance.  They are nothing but crystals formed 100 miles below the surface of the Earth.  People have always recognized diamonds as something of great value.  Diamonds used to be a rarity and were reserved for royalty and the upper elite class.

Today, synthetic diamonds rival natural ones in terms of looks.  Because they are grown under controlled conditions, laboratory-grown diamonds can have high color and clarity like naturally-formed gem diamonds.  Even though the diamonds are lab created they look real and are earth friendly and affordable.  I would call these the eco-friendly jewelry.  The lab created diamonds are typically a lot less than mined diamonds.  People now can purchase affordable lab created engagement rings from diamond laboratories like Diamond Nexus.

Whether you are looking for the bling and to be able to say, I have a big flashy diamond that’s bigger than yours, then Nexus diamonds will fulfill that need just fine.  I personally preferred diamonds from Earth but these radiant cushion cut studs from Diamond Nexus look just as beautiful and real to me.  They match my rings and they sparkle wherever I turn.  And that’s enough to charm me!
