Lustour vs. Moissanite
The Moissanite had it’s day in the sun. To those who couldn’t afford a real diamond the moissanite was the answer. But over time we’ve received many calls and emails asking if there was a better alternative to the diamond. For a while there wasn’t.
Then we stumbled upon the Lustour Diamond. We informed all of our clients who asked us about a better alternative, and they jumped on it. They couldn’t be happier, and since then we’ve been letting our future clients in on the secret. It really is that beautiful.
Diamond Prices compared to Lustour Diamond (Stone) Prices
Diamonds are an expensive gemstone. PERIOD! But a Lustour Gemstone is just a fraction of the cost, at a retail cost of only $800 a carat compared to a diamond. But that’s just the beginning in savings. Read below.

1.25 ct. – $1000

The Lustour diamond alternative is priced the same across the board while diamonds are priced according to many factors.
Diamonds get more expensive the bigger they get. But the price doesn’t go up at a set rate. In other words if a diamond costs $4000 – $8000 for a 1 carat diamond it’s not going to cost $6000 – $12000 for a 2 carat.
Because diamonds are priced based on rarity. 2 carats and higher are more rare so that 2 carat diamond could cost as much as $16,000 to $20,000 or higher. And not only are diamonds priced according to size, they are also priced according to color, clarity, and cut. The better color, clarity and cut, the higher the price. It gets confusing and expensive really fast.

A Lustour stone is about as close as you can get to a real diamond without actually buying the real thing.
The dispersion and refraction (fire and sparkle) is so close to a diamond that’s it’s impossible to tell the difference without a microscope and a trained professional.
Dispersion, refers to an optical property of gemstones whereby flashes and pinpoints of spectral colors are displayed as the stone is turned in the light. And, as the light moves through the diamond, it is scattered and fractured, creating the sparkle that diamonds are known for. This is the refraction.
The Quality of a Lustour Diamond Alternative
Even though the price of the Lustour stone is the same price across the board. It’s always colorless (D-F in color), it’s always Flawless to Near Flawless (IF – VS in clarity), and it’s always hand cut to hearts and arrows perfection. That is to say that it’s cut is immaculately ideal which in turn gives off a brilliant sparkle with every twist of the hand
Can a Lustour Stone be confused with a real diamond?
If you’re just looking at it, Yes. It was created to mimic the natural look and brilliance of a real diamond. Even we couldn’t distinguish the difference between the two. However, try and pass the Lustour diamond off as real one at a jewelers and you’ll find it’s not so easy.
Not because they can tell the difference with their own eyes, but there’s a machine that can test different gemstones. Called, for lack of better name, a Diamond Testing Machine. The Lustour diamond manufacturers added a special chemical into their gemstone that only the machine can pick up on. It’s this chemical that tells the machine it’s not a real diamond.

The Lustour Stone is a lab-created 100% carbon, synthetic diamond alternative. NOT a diamond simulate. A simulate is glassier looking than a diamond, and gives off an exceedingly higher dispersion (flashes of light). Your typical diamond simulates are Cubic Zirconia, and Moissanite.
The dispersion of diamond simulates, which often looks like a disco ball of light, is usually a dead give-away that it’s not a diamond, and the glassy-ness look in the cheaper to mid versions of cz and moissanite make the “diamond alternate” look extremely fake.
On the other hand, the Lustour Stone is very close to the dispersion of a diamond and it’s refractive property is also quite close. Couple that with the perfect hearts and arrow cut of each, you get an end result of a near perfect choice for a diamond alternative at a fraction of the cost. The best part…
