Generally speaking, there are two methods for producing synthetic diamonds: high pressure/high temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).

For people who cannot afford real diamonds or want a 100-percent guarantee that their diamond is conflict-free, synthetic diamonds are good substitutes. For many years, the only synthetic option available was cubic zirconia, but now consumers can also choose from Moissanite and man-made diamonds.
