I don’t have a moissy ring but I think they are beautiful!  For my birthday my wonderful husband let me pick out a pair of earrings and I went for moissanite!  They came out really nicely- the stones definitely have a buttery quality, but in the sun they sparkle so intensely, and the color is hard to see when they’re in my ears, lol.  I actually like the warmth though- it works for them I think.  I’m really pleased!

I have 2 carat total weight moissonite earrings.  I l ove them.  They sparkle like crazy.  My e-ring is a diamond, though.  I am pretty old school.

I am not sure of more are or not, but I love all gems.  Moissy is a great option for people, so I am happy to see it getting some love.  My pink moissy I may love as much as my diamonds, lol.

I think it has a lot to do with afordability and durability.  Some people like larger diamonds, but aren’t in the place to purchase one.  They could get a low quality CZ for very cheap, but they aren’t particularly durable, so scratches and the such are a reality.  Moissanites are much more likely to hold up to everyday wear and tear, yet they are more cost efficient.  

I don’t have a ring at all, but my boyfriend and I are saving for a move, as well as a down payment for a house.  So I’d pretty much be happy with anything that didn’t cost more than $1,500.  I’m a science geek and I have a bit of a soft spot for anything lab created and the story behind the discovery of Moissanite fascinates me personally.

Just for example, I happened to fall in love with a moissainte ring without even knowing that is what it was at the time (it is how I orginally learned of moissanite).  The price of that ring is only $1,150.  Pricing a diamond of the same size in that setting runs about $3,500.  That is if we pick the lowest quality diamond that was avaliable.  If we were to decide to stay in the $1,150 budget and get a diamond I’d be looking at a diamond 1/3 the size of the moissanite in that ring.  While that wouldn’t be a problem for me, it would be for a lot of people who want more finger coverage.  I’d rather have the setting I love now and a moissanite than a setting I think is just okay and a diamond.  We could always upgrade to a diamond in the future if we really felt we needed to. 

I have never seen a moissanite in person, so I could hate it for all I know, but a lot of people love the “moodiness” of them and the rainbow of colors they give off.  For a lot of people that is a factor as well.

I bought my moissy to have a different cut and style while keeping my diamond ering intact. After being married 26 years (!!) I figured I could have another option 🙂 oh, and I have kids in college. Lol

love my OEC moissy!
