I was flipping through channels last night and fell on QVC and saw they had really cute diamonique studs. I went online to ask them if they were CZ or diamond stimulant when I read on a thread here that, "The sim diamond is chemically/molecularly the same as a "natural" (mined) diamond, minus the years and years spent in compression within a mountain (and much cheaper since the diamonds aren't mined). A CZ is a different stone altogether - chemically/molecularly." I asked an associte of QVC if diamonique was CZ or diamond stimulant, and she said CZ. Then today I read the description of the some of their diamonique and it said "diamond stimulant" so I contacted another worker and she seriously had no idea what to say. Barbara W: it is a simulated diamonique missie: what is a stimulated diamonique?? Barbara W: man made missie: but isnt both CZ and stimulated diamonds man made? Barbara W: yes they are missie: so does diamonique fall under stimulated diamonds or CZ? Barbara W: no it is a simulated it has nothing to do with a diamond the whole diamonique is a man made stone missie: im not sure if you understand what i am saying ma'am missie: i should clarify. i'm asking if it is a stimulated diamond. do you know what the difference between a stimulated diamond and a CZ is? Barbara W: I am sorry no I do not missie: both CZs and stimulated diamonds are both man made. they are just made differently. 'The sim diamond is chemically/molecularly the same as a "natural" (mined) diamond, minus the years and years spent in compression within a mountain (and much cheaper since the diamonds aren't mined). A CZ is a different stone altogether'. i was wondering what catagory diamonique fell under. Barbara W: I am sorry I can not tell you how they are made I can just tell you that they are man made missy: okay thank you very much for all your help." Does anyone know what they are?!!?
