@als1214:  I have an alexandrite but I love looking at moissanites. Am I unwelcome or can I ogle?

I have a moissanite RHR and I think moissanite is so pretty. It is different to a diamond but variety is the spice of life!

 

Here’s a pic of my FB heart shaped moissanite compared to my diamond. I think the moissy shows a lot more colour despite it being an FB because it’s a fancy shape, I’m sure the rounds are much whiter. I only really see it if I’m putting it next to my “E” diamond, kind of like cream next to white.

@als1214:  You should probably say “Moissanite LOVERS, not owners.” There are probably tons of bees waiting to own one. Also, there might be sapphire or emerald owners that won’t be negative about moissanite!

@als1214:  Ugh.. those backhanded snarky comments. Why do you care what another person wears on their finger??

Under your post it should say X Minutes ago (reply) edit

You can edit the header there 😀

The boyfriend creature and I have been becoming increasingly serious, and he recently brought up in our chatting about moissanite, talking about its properties and such, in that “I’m trying to feel out your opinion on this thing but trying to be subtle about it because I am a boy and think I am super sneaky and don’t have obvious intent” way. The more I’ve read into them, the more I’ve loved them. They’re drop dead gorgeous, so close in appearance to diamonds that they work in all the same settings, and they aren’t obtained through the suffering of others (Well, mostly. Insert joke about him being a lawyer here.) Partner that with the fact that I’m a hands on kind of lady and if a prong is damaged and a stone falls loose, it won’t cost an arm and a leg, and I don’t have to invest in ~ring insurance~? Brilliant. I slapped up some posts on them to my Pinterest board which he “tooootally doesn’t look at despite having discovered it” and I look forward to the day I blast one of those bad boys on my finger. 

The only negative I really see people listing is that despite the fact that they have all the best aspects of diamonds and none of the worst, they are not diamonds and only cost a fraction of the price, and those kind of complaints always seem like they’re spurned by jealousy on the part of diamond advocates.
