Simulated diamonds are manufactured to look like diamonds but are composed of very different materials. Although simulants share some similarities in appearance to a diamond, they are a much more affordable stand-ins. The most well-known option is cubic zirconia, or CZ, which is a crystal form of zirconium oxide and can be found natural, however more commonly created. Moissanite is a lab created gem alternative to CZ, and is durable and also cost less than real diamonds.
CZ and Miossinate are real gems. There are a few types of stones that are used as diamond simulants, but cubic zirconia is the most common. Moissanite has a brilliance and hardness that is very close to a diamond, however the opulent cost of Moissanite makes Zirconia a much more affordable option when purchasing fine jewelry.

Diamonds may look clear to the naked eye, but real diamonds have a slight color usually a yellowish, and in natural diamonds there is usually a flaw.
