Hi to all,
I know that the other forum is a better place for some of these moissy questions but I like talking to you girls more. I hope this is ok.
I am thinking of getting at a cushion cut Amora (enhanced), 1.8 carats in J color set in a cathedral in palladium.
My boyfriend definitely makes the money and I live in a BLINGTASTIC city of Atlanta, so no worries there either. I priced out the ring if it were in J, SI1 and it would be about $8,000 ish which is also very believable.
My boyfriend took an assignment to work in Australia (my home country, strange I know) and so we are prefering to spend our money on traveling and SEEING each other as often as possible over the ring. He is there for the next 3 years.
I wear a 5.5 in rings and long fingers. I like my hands 😀

i don’t think most people would be able to tell the difference! i know my moissy is sooo gorgeous, SO white, and so sparkly that i don’t think anyone would think it wasn’t a diamond if i didn’t tell them. especially since you said your SO makes enough to afford the diamond, i don’t think anyone would have reason to think it wasn’t a diamond.

can I ask WHY you want to try to pass it off as a diamond? I just don’t see a reason to lie about it. If people ask if its real (I mean, seriously, people ask this?) then tell them its none of their business. OR, if you are feeling honest, tell them its a great moissy because your money is better spent traveling to see your FI

Why do you need to lie about your ring?
A moissy isn’t a diamond, it is a unique stone of its own.
From what I have seen of moissys on youtube, the double refraction is VERY noticeable and I can see a difference between a mossy and a diamond.
Most of the mossy wearers on this board are proud to wear moissys and chose them for a reason (and that reason wasn’t that it looks like a diamond for cheaper).
I think you should be proud of your ring, whatever it is, rather than lie about what it is.

MrsSl82be – it is none of their business. I guess I am just wondering.
I also don’t think anyone that I know in my circle would ask me. They may gossip behind my back though LOL!

When did I say I “would not be proud?”
I am very proud, but, society is going to label him as cheap. He actually wanted to do a diamond but I think it’s smarter to do the moissy!

@Jane8530: So educate society on WHY you made the choice you did!
If you are proud of what you have, you don’t lie about it.
I’m not saying go around telling everyone who looks at the ring that it isn’t a diamond, but if someone asks about specs, where he got it, etc be proud of your choice and educate them about moissy.

i understand where you’re coming from. my SO wanted to get a diamond as well, but i really wanted moissy. when i saw how beautiful it was though, i knew i would tell everyone it’s moissy because i’m so proud of it! however, i can understand people not telling that it isn’t a diamond, and do think that you’ll easily be able to pull it off.

@Jane8530: Why does it matter so much what other people think about something that is so personal? What if he couldn’t afford anything but a plain band (even that is more than some people can afford!). I think your reasons are good for going Moissy (cost, saving money to see each other) but I think you should go with what makes you happiest and forget what other people are saying.

I have a moissanite and no one ever suspected it wasn’t a diamond. They mostly grab my hand and say how nice my ring is. BUT I am very ok with saying it’s a moissanite if someone asked or called it a diamond. I didn’t get mine enhanced and it’s definitely moody depending on lighting and the weather, but that’s one of the things I love about it 🙂

You shouldn’t feel the need to pass it off as a diamond as there is absolutely nothing wrong with moissy!
As far as your “circle” is concerned, if you really think they are going to gossip about you behind your back over a ring then you need to run with a new circle, girl!
Be proud and rock that moissy!

I don’t think I could tell the difference. In my 3+ years of wearing my diamond I’ve never had someone ask if it was a diamond – I have also never shown someone and said, “this is my diamond ring”. I assume even if it wasn’t people would not ask.

If you want to tell people it’s a diamond-go for it! If someone is rude enough to ask if it’s a real diamond (I still cant believe this happens in real life), then who cares. It’s your ring and your life-tell people whatever you want to.

If possible, can people answer the question. I understand the huge debate and I was ready for this but I am really just hoping for a yes or no answer. That was all.
