Ugh so bummed. Besty and I were looking at the moissanite ring I am in love with, and the store owner had a gadget that measured stones to test for moissanite or diamond. Well he tested the moissanite- yup moissanite. Then for comparison he tested my friends diamond ring and uh oh, it came up moissanite too. So she started flipping out and blowing up on her fiance via text, meanwhile I’m pleading with her to wait until the owner cleans her ring to try again (after the cleaning, it showed as diamond). She showed me her phone to point at something he said but since the screen is large, I saw other things he wrote. Like “I didn’t buy you some lab created piece of shit!!!”
I wanted to cry. Well, first I wanted to punch him in the face, but then I wanted to cry. I know I wasn’t meant to see that particular text, but I did and it still sucks. Now I know he will forever judge me as having “some lab created piece of shit” on my hand. He is an asshole to start with so his opinion matters very little to me, but dang. Still stings.

He was likely just pissed that his fiancee freaked at him and didn’t actually mean to call a moissy a POS. I wouldn’t take it personally at all, especially since you said he’s a dick anyway 🙂

I understand it was hurtful, but in fairness to him, he wasn’t talking at all about your ring. He was defending himself against baseless accusations from his FI. And, as you yourself admitted, you weren’t meant to even see that particular text.
All that matters is that you’re happy with your ring, period.

I’m not trying to excuse his language, but he probably was just upset that his fiancee was freaking out at him and accusing him of lying to her. He might not even know what moissanite is!

@Omgbunnies: Girl dont think twice about it. You got something you wanted and love and dont let someone who texted something takes that away. Brush it off and get over it. Who gives a rotten pickle what anyone says….does it make you love your ring less?

I am confused how you’re upset by this. Moissanites are waaaaay cheaper than a similar quality diamond. That’s a fact, not an opinion. If your friend’s FI spent $$$$$ on a diamond ring, but then got accused of spending a fraction of that on a Moissy…how do you think he’ll react? And obviously he wasn’t talking about you or to you, so in the end, how does this even affect you at all?

@Omgbunnies: Try not to feel badly about it. He sounds like an asshat. 😐 Or maybe he was just pissed off because she was yelling at him or he thought he paid for something that wasn’t what he thought it was and said things he didn’t really mean.
And I’m sure your ring is gorgeous. Who the heck cares whether it’s a diamond or moissanite or whatever -it’s pretty and sparkly and pretty.

@Juliepants: He and his family had a jewelry business, he may well have known what it is. Ugh thats why I hate when people get snobby about diamonds. It shouldn’t matter as long as the couple is happy.

Why does everyone feel the need to sugarcoat? This man probably does think of moissanite in that way. There are plenty of non assholes who think the SAME way and they know all of the “facts” and STILL believe the same way. Fact is BFD. Opinions are like a$$holes. If u love it-love it. It’s your ring. Just realize that somone will think your ring is a piece of crap. And that’s ok too

Screw what he thinks. You love it and that’s all that matters.

Well look at this this way, assholes don’t like your ring. Do you really want a ring that assholes like? Of course not.

Eh, it’s one guy’s opinion. The only one that matters about your ring is yours.

Lady, you really shouldn’t care… He was just being defensive. I’m not saying he was being a total ass though… A LOT of guys feel the same way about real diamonds vs. lab-created diamonds. You know why? Because of the importance so many women place on materialistic things.
Your friend freaked out when she thought her diamond was fake. I’m not calling your friend a bad person, but I do think that her reaction might indicate that she places more value on the stone on her ring than on her guy. Or she thinks that he’s a lying jerk, which either way shouldn’t have warranted a public freak-out from her.
Just a thought 😉

Not everyone likes Moissy and some people do think they are POS. Who cares?
