    Nope, but I don’t mind diamonds either.

    I couldn’t vote in the poll because none of the options fit, but I have a moissanite and it’s exactly what I wanted, and I was/am thrilled with it. I had to do a bit of convincing to get FI on board with moissanite rather than a diamond, but now he is a big fan too.

    I would dislike getting something other than a diamond.  I love my diamond.  loved it so much my wedding band is covered in diamonds!

     

    I think if you LOVE moissy that it’s a great stone….but I don’t believe in trying to pass off moissy as a diamond….if you want a diamond, save for a diamond, or you can always get a small diamond then upgrade in the future 😀

    @McBezel:  I wish you had an option, “Got a diamond: Wish I had a moisy”

     

    I hate our society, so I like things aren’t so outrageously expensive.

    I would be SO disappointed to get something cheaper and manmade like a moissanite (my diamond is conflict free of course).

    My e-ring that my SO and I picked out is a moissanite. I will tell you with 100% honesty why we picked it – it was affordable and gave me the option to have a bigger, nicer stone. It was a no-brainer. If I could afford a diamond of that size, I would buy it. But I can’t, and no one has to know unless I decide to let them in on it, or they happen to be a gem expert.

    I also don’t understand the sentiment that if you want a moissy because you can’t afford a large diamond, then you shouldn’t get one. For some reason, these people think that your ring needs a disclaimer.

    I got a diamond, but seriously considered a moissainite. Little did I know as I was pitching my reasons to my now FI, he had already purchased my diamond, which I love! Haha

    Why would you even ask this? And it didn’t occur to you to add an option for Bees who got a moissy and love it? 

    This post it stupid. You’re trying to start crap, whether you say you’re a “nice” person or not. 

    The point of your post is to underline that you would be disappointed with a moissy because you’re a “diamond girl”, and you want to see how many Bees agree?

    Sorry, I forgot to post my reasons! I fell in love with moissanite initially for ethical reasons, though the price was an added bonus. Once I started looking at moissanite online, I also really started to love the properties and the look of them as well, and this was even more true once I got my ring and could see it in person! The things that differentiate moissanite from a diamond are things I love about it. 

     

    While I don’t really care if other people pass off their moissanite as a diamond, I don’t really get it either. I think moissanite is so cool in its own right and don’t view it as a simulant. I am happy to tell people about it when they start a conversation about my ring.

    You also need an option for “Got a Moissy: wanted it, love it!”

    Not sure what kind of results you are going to get with this poll, diamonds have been pushed as the engagement stone for a long time.  I’m not sure a guy would pick out a non diamond ring unless he knew for sure his soon to be FI would want it.  Same goes for other non-diamond gemstone rings.  Would someone who wanted a diamond be dissapointed with a ruby, emerald, etc?

    We didn’t have the money for a diamond, and even if we did there are better things we could spend it on.  I told him about moissanite and that it was the stone I wanted.

    There isn’t an option there for me. I got moissanite, I was expecting it, and I love it!

    I love my diamond, and plus it’s my birthstone and my fiance’s birthstone as well. 🙂
