it is quite easy to synthesize diamonds given the right equipment given that it is simply compressed carbon. however you cannot sell them for the same price as normal diamonds if you are selling them for jewelry as in synthesizing the diamonds they lose some value in that they are less symbolic thus you must always advertise them as synthetic diamonds. they are however just as useful for diamond edged blades etc. as standard diamonds. there are some documentaries on this which i'm sure you could find on YouTube

There are diamonds grown in labs, known as cultured diamonds or man made diamonds that are not from natural mines. They sell for a fraction of natural stones. The average person cannot, to this point, manufacture diamonds at home.
