So I’ve been lurking the boards for quite some time and decided that I needed help (lurking just wasn’t going to cut it anymore).
My fiance and I are planning on having our wedding in 2016, and after serious discussion, we have decided to use the money we put aside for my ERing for down payment on a gorgeous house near the beach (because in my opinion a place to live comes before a rock on my finger). But this is where the problems begin.
My fiance and I both come from pretty traditional old school families where they believe a Diamond is the means all to ends all. I am seriously in love with all the moissanite rings I’ve found in this forum and wanted to ask the ring owners some questions. I don’t intend to pass off my moissanite as a diamond, and my fiance and I make enough money that we will be able to replace my ERing in a couple years with a real diamond if need arises. However, I really can’t justfy spending tens and thousands of dollars just so my family wont look down on my fiance.
Here are the questions I have:
1. Do people every question that your moissanite is a diamond? (I don’t think my family will be rude enough to ask if my moissanite is a diamond, but if it looks like a CZ or a White Sapphire, I’m sure they will be able to tell) I don’t intend to pass off my moissanite as a diamond (which seems to be a big topic of debate on the forum) but I’d rather avoid the conflict by not having people question my gemstone to begin with. It makes my life a whole lot easier.
2. Should I spend the extra money and get my Moissanite enhanced? If so, is there a huge difference between the Amora and FB?
3. What cuts traditionally look best on the Moissanite? My favorite diamond cuts are Emerald and Radiant. Do they look good on the Moissanite?
4. Lastly, please post photos of your rings and any details (twc, band details, etc) you’d like to add! Anything you add to this thread will be EXTREMELY helpful! Thank you!
