Hi ! Welcome and happy 20th anniversary in advance. What most of us I think will tell you here, for a great alternative (not simulant because it is just a completely different stone) to a diamond is Moissanite. I own one, it’s affordable, beautiful, lasting, doesn’t dull nor fade, has crazy fire (more than a diamond) and hardness of 9 or 9.5/10 I think (diamond is 10 if I am correct.) Take a look at youtube videos, type ‘Moissanite in sunlight’ ‘Moissanite fire’. Some of our ladies here actually did some youtube videos in which you will see how beautiful it is. Take a look at moissaniteco.com

Good luck !

I second moissanite! I have a moissanite engagement ring and it’s perfect!

I agree with moissanite suggestions. It won’t get cloudy overtime like a CZ.

I love my moissy too. congratulations on your 20th anniversary. That’s awesome. My moissy was my 25th anniversary present.

I would suggest asha diamonds!  They are cz with an outer diamond coating to make them super sparkly, and more durable than a standard cz (although not as durable as a diamond or moissy.)

You can read about it here!

I would also suggest the Better Than Diamonds forum, as they have sooo much info about simulants.  Good luck!

RobinWren:  I wish I could see one too!! It’s what we plan to do for my ring, eventually. You can always order a loose stone and then return it. I love moissy too but I want a cushion cut, and its a little too warm in that cut for my liking. The round stones are whiter, especially with the forever brilliant enhancement.
