    look at how sparkly it is under light. if you cant tell take it to a jewelry store and have them analyze it.

    Unfortunately lab-created fake gemstones are now so good that it is difficult to know if a stone is genuine just by looking, even if you are a serious  jewelry hobbyist.

    Today even well-experienced jewelry professionals rely upon electronic instrumentation to weed out Moisssanite and other artificial diamonds from the real thing.

    If you are interested in a loose diamond or a pre-owned ring take the precaution of getting an opinion from an independent jeweler with the right instruments. Most often you won't be charged an appraisal fee for an informal  check.

    On significant purchases, however, a proper Gemological Institute of America appraisal is very cheap considering the peace of mind it will bring.

    Really I don't know much about the diamonds but I can suggest you to Quantum International Diamonds for knowing the diamond is fake or real.
