I randomly came on this site while browsing about e-rings with my fiance and after reading so many posts I absolutely had to join and keep visiting this very helpful site. So I have a couple questions
First which is better moissanite or diamond?
Second if we buy a diamond is s12 clarity considered bad?
Also please could you all post your e-rings with description of your finger size and the rings cut and the type of stone it is- you have no idea how helpful some forums here have been and I would really love to see some more.

Moissanite are great if you can afford a diamond because they look so real ..And SI2 aren’t bad and inclusion would only be able to be seen with a 10x loupe just try to stay above a J in color anything below J looks yellow .
Here are my ring sorry about the pic being kinda blurry.. Halo vintage style with .75 princess cut diamond center size 4 1/2 Finger

i think it really depends on personal preference and what you can afford – i dont think one is necessarily better than the other
Diamond vs Moissy has been a hot topic on the boards before but i personally think both are wonderful and you cant go wrong either way.
i do not know much about the 4 C’s so im not sure what mine is – sorry – my husband picked the ring out himself so i didnt have much knowledge on it -but he does!
i have a .91 center diamond cushion cut with a pave band and halo – i wear a size 4
please excuse my crazy pinky – i noticed all my pictures of my rings are like this! weird – note to brides to be – make sure your pinky finger looks normal in pictures haha
here is a closer pic

I think it really just depends how it looks when you see it
Mine is a J in color and a S2 (i think)
I couldn’t believe the rating when I saw it… it does NOT look yellow at all & it only looks a little “cloudy” if you look at it from the bottom (underneath)

My ring size is 5.5 but needs to be resized smaller- mine is all diamonds- Center stone is 1 Carat Princess cute and the setting is all round cut and equals 2.1 carats for the setting. So 3.1 total carats! Good Luck! I dont know ANYTHING about Moissanite so sorry I cant help ya there!

Here are the stats of my ring…(sorry about the crappy cell phone pic). My ring finger is 5.75, ring is 1.52 carats, not sure about the clarity and color. Fiance showed me the report and I don’t remember specifics. I do remember that everything was more towards the upper end than lower end of ranges.

I really wanted a diamond engagement ring (I always have, diamonds are my birthstone, and my Fiance was able to afford it), but I have seen some gorgeous mossy stones on here.
As for SI2 clarity, that should be fine, just bump up a bit on color. Each diamond is different, so it’s hard to know without looking at the exact stone in question. Go and look at loose stones (both mossy and diamond) and see what you like.
My finger size is 4.5.
I have a 1.53 c cushion cut. Internally Flawless, Color F with a .25 c 1/2 pave band.

Moissanite v. diamond is really a personal decision. I would do some serious research on moissanite to become more informed. There are lots of pics and even some good videos on here that might help. I have a moissanite that I love but I know it isn’t for everyone. I did months of research before deciding to go that route. Mine is a 1 carat, round (NOT enhnanced), size 6.5 (probably half a size too big though) moissanite. Sorry for the huge photo and the crappy quality. I hate my camera!
