Revolutionary New Process Creates Man Made Diamonds
Literally every six months to a year someone else creates, invents or revolutionizes a process

actually no different than genuine naturally mined diamonds. Is what they are claiming a fact, myth or a
bold-faced lie? You decide!

machine are determined to convince you and the rest of us that man made diamonds are replacing genuine diamonds.
Nothing is further from the truth.
Here’s a quick test anyone can perform to determine the value of any
man made diamond. Take a 1.5 carat man made diamond ring to a fine jewelry buyer and ask him or her to make you
an offer. You can also take that same piece to a pawnshop and also ask them to make you an offer. If the above
statements these people are making about man made diamonds are true, you’ll get offered the same money or close
to it as a genuine naturally mined 1.5 carat diamond ring.
The fact is all professional jewelry buyers and pawnshop personnel
will sneer at you for attempting to pass off a man made diamond as a real one. Why? Because for people in the
diamond trade, man made diamonds have zero resale value. In other words, once
you buy a man made diamond, you will have very few takers, if any at all who will purchase that piece from you.
If they do, they will offer you peanuts.

like fresh wild salmon? Is cloned beef, like beef from naturally grown cows? You decide!
