    You can wear whatever you want. Dishonesty only comes into it when you say your 2 carat asha is a 2ct flawless diamond. Don’t lie about what your jewelery is or is not, and there should be no problem.

    Also fake =/= inexpensive.

    Also, I have a 2ct created white sapphire. I love my ring. Granted my current ring is set in silver, so my actual engagement ring will be a natural white sapphire in white gold.

    I’ve neevr lied about my ring. I’m VERY proud of my white sapphire.

    Yeah people lie! Honey people will always try to keep up with the jones. Same with the people who carry around fake LV bags and say it’s real.

    Does anyone prefer a fake/inexpensive ring?  Sure, there’s ton of people that do.  I’m not one of them.  Who’s going to judge?  Not me.  I couldnt care less what anyone else wants to wear on their finger.  Wearing a clear stone is not ‘dishonest’, there are many clear stones.

    Sorry, but this moissy vs diamond vs white sapphire vs whatever, expensive vs inexpensive, big vs small, I dont care so why do other people care so much topic is getting old.

    @Overjoyed:  I’ve always liked diamonds. I get a thrill wearing something so expensive. I grew up watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s and believing that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Just another way that I’m girly. I am sure part of it is genius marketing and I don’t really care. I also love designer handbags. Those things make me happy.

    With that said, though, I have plenty of ‘fake’ jewelry that I love too. It doesn’t have to be expensive for me to love it, but I’ll always have a soft spot for diamonds.

    I think passing off a moissanite as a diamond is lying about it if someone asks. Obviously you don’t need a sign taped to your forehead saying “THIS IS NOT A DIAMOND”, but if asked, lying about it is what ticks people off, I believe.

    My everyday ring is one that my Darling Husband made for me. It doesnt have any stones but he made it with his own two hands so I love it and am proud of it. Plus, he sacrificed his best butcher knife for it.

    Do I *prefer* diamonds?


    But hey, I have plenty of jewelry that I love that does not consist of diamonds. But for an engagement ring, I would prefer something that is more hardy so it would last longer.

    But for jewelry that’s easily replaceable, it doesn’t matter to me really what it is.

    Do I prefer fake/inexpensive rings?  Nope.

    I have collected jewelry all my life and while the cheaper items have tremendous sentimental value, I’m at a place in my life where I can afford nicer things (finally!).

    my rings are real diamonds and i love them. 

    i do, however, also have a gorgeous lab created pink diamond.  it is beautiful and i love it too.  when people ask what it is, i tell them the truth.  let’s face it, i don’t have $3million for a real one. 

    real or not real; beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I prefer a moissanite, but it’s not a fake diamond. So I’m not going to vote in this poll since there is no option for that. My SO can afford a diamond, but I don’t see the point in spending a ton of money on one, when all jewelery stores use is price gouging for them. Whatever makes people happy though is all that matters.

    We will be designing a matching set, likely in a grey metal which fits BOTH our styles. I needn’t a diamond for it. I am looking at colored stones on EBay but will be perusing pawn shops for diamonds (they are SUPER cheap there!).
