Swarovski and synthetic diamond

The Austrian specialist in cut crystal, whose founder Daniel Swarovski stated that “diamonds are for royalty, I want a diamond for every woman” has written the next chapter in its story with a collection of synthetic diamonds. Produced under high-pressure, this diamond has the same chemical composition and characteristics as those formed billions of years ago in the bowels of the earth. Will its price that’s 30% lower and its ethical nature make it an equal to the natural stone, one that’s considered a miracle of nature?
