Arguments for a real vs lab-grown diamond

Went to a jeweler today for an engagement ring. Asked him about laboratory-grown diamond and he said he would not do so because there is no resale value for a cultivated laboratory and that it does not make sense until the laboratory cultivation is down to 5-10% the price of a natural diamond. This first began as a legitimate argument, but then I thought that if the lab that was cultivated flooded the market, would people still pay more for the natural diamonds, or wouldn’t their resale value also fall?

Are people still willing to pay more for natural stones for emeralds and other gems that already have thriving lab industries?
