Actually, they both look fake to me.

Diamonds should be bright and brilliant. The prism look is usually how a fake is identified.

Just my two cents...one is real, I'm sure.

One of these two is a diamond I got the picture from a jeweler's website and if it's not a diamond that is the most expensive CZ I have seen.

I love all jewelry...I love all stones.

Of course REAL diamonds are the best, just not that important. I don't wear or buy stones to impress anyone, I buy and wear because I like them. My new favorite is Mexican Fire Opals....So nice.

I'm just guessing here....A is real, B is fake. I'm not sure that a real diamond will throw out a prism like the bottom picture is showing.

fire opals are beautiful! i feel the same way as you do. i too love jewelry. i also tend to like the expensive stuff. not really into costume jewelry. although a nice set of rhinestones is always nice.

Okay here are the results a total of 16 people voted. 11 or 68% voted that A is the diamond and 5 or 31% voted B is the diamond.
The real Diamond is:














Gem A
Man I can not fool you people. A 3 carat loose diamond like the one pictured is a steal at only $ 26,180 of course if you pick one in fair condition it drops down to $18,884 what a deal. Of course you can get a 3.5 carat CZ set in white gold for only $375 that would fool about 31% of the people.

Of course the funny part (I am in jewelry sales and design) is that CZ would only cost the jeweler at the EXTREME most $4 of 5.

I would need to know the total carat weight of the diamond (I'm assuming those are real, it can be hard to tell with just pictures, and not having them really in front of you). Those pictures just show a portion of the necklace, but if you give me the total carat weight, and what karat of gold it is set in I can give you an idea of the wholesale and retail values.
