I’ve read many many different ring threads and comments. I’m sure you have too.
Diamonds, Sapphires, Rubies, Emeralds, Moissanite, it doesn’t matter. Lab-created, mined, conflict mined, it doesn’t matter.
Love your gem of choice for the qualities it has within itself, not for the qualities it holds above other gems.
It is discouraging to read “I chose this gem because so and so doesn’t control the supply”. Really? You really chose your ring or had your FI chose your ring because you don’t agree with some (brilliant) marketing? Do you realize how many other companies do the same thing? I mean, ok, thats fine. But can’t you just say, I chose this gem because I LOVE the way it looks! I chose this gem because it has such and such significance to me! Or the price was perfect for us!
It is discouraging to read ” Oh, I would never get that gem because its a FAKE.” I mean ouch, punch to the gut! I know, I know, this is the internet and we all should have thick skin, yada yada, we can say what we want. But is it really necessary to be THAT brutally honest? You really can’t just say, That ring isn’t my style, or point out a good aspect of the ring? Or at the very least nothing at all?
There are so many more comments I’ve read, as I’m sure you have too. I bet I’ve even been guilty of some. (I never knew Moissanite was it’s own gem, for example, until here 😀 ). This is just my “I’m feeling sensitive and love this place so I need to rant” rant. And yes, I know this was done a couple weeks ago, and I am also not calling anyone specific out at all…Any other disclaimers?
This can be a discussion of sorts, if you feel the need to rant or vent or anything on anything, not a debate because I love our mods and know Mr.Bee is anti debate LOL.
Or you could just ignore me, I do that sometimes as well.
