If I am ever lucky enough to.have the opportunity to have someone give me a diamond, I would not mind if it was lab grown or natural. In fact, if the lab grown ones are cheaper, I think that would be better. I would not want my boyfriend (or family) to have to break the bank just to get me a diamond ring or earrings or necklace. I would be happy with other, cheaper, stones too. It's the thought that counts. The only time I would be upset is if I was told it was a diamond and it was cubic zirconia or something.
