A synthetic diamond is a lab-created diamond which has the same material properties as a natural diamond whereas a simulant diamond is something that looks like a diamond but with some material differences. The most common type of simulant is Cubic Zirconia: it looks just like a diamond, and only a trained gemologist would be able to tell the difference.
