    Great pics! I was in the same boat as you, didn’t think we could afford a diamond and thought moissanite was a beautiful affordable alternative. FI got me a diamond because of his thoughts on what an engagement ring should be and, in his words, he didn’t want anyone thinking he’d “cheaped out” on something so important.

    I wish there were more side by side comparisons online of stones of similar size. Moissanite is a beautiful stone on its own, but it’s not well known, so having comparisons to something people have seen a lot of I think is great for potential buyers

    I like them both but for different reasons, the moissy’s have more color and i love that, but I also love that diamonds are just sparkle.

    I have a diamond but always wanted a blue sapphire. Now I need a RHR 😛

    Your ring is beautiful! He did good for sure. I don’t think that moissanite is as nice as others. Mine looks more clear…. It may be an older one. Here is mine to show you.

    shawna.darling4:  Your halo is beautiful! 

    I actually prefer the moissy because I like warm stones. What is up with that setting though? It looks like a belt buckle, lol.

    TrueLove407:  I don’t think the moissy posted looks ‘unclear’ it just has a lot of light play. Yours pics were not taken in the same sort of lighting, so it is hard to compare. Never met a moissy I did not like though 🙂
