@lookingglass:  When I first saw moissanite, I’ll admit, my first thought was ‘um, fake’ but the more I learnt about it, the more I fell in love, and the more I actually preffered it to diamond, rather than it just being an alternative.


You came over to the dark side, muhahahahahahaa!!!

Seriously, though, that’s an awesome story! I’m glad you could lay out the information and tell them about the cool features of moissanite. The double refraction and rainbow sparklies are my favorite things about moissanite.

That’s really cool that the girls were interested. I was one of those girls too. I’ve had beautiful diamonds in my lifetime, my moissanite outshines them and makes me so much happier because I am now an eco nerd 🙂  I am a total convert from anything mined to anything lab created and moissanite is such a gorgeous gem stone!

I love stories like that!!!  I have never had anything but positive comments on my moissy rings.  People always want to know more about it.  I think your own attitude towards it helps others to see it positively as well.  If you seem nervous or unsure of it, or see it as a fake in your mind, chances are they will too.  But if your are thrilled with it, it would take a real B to try to crush that.

We got engaged about a month ago, but shopped for rings for about 2 months before that.  And I’m not gonna lie.  I did a lot of looking for Moissanite.  I think it’s a better stone at a better price than a diamond.  And I liked the idea of it because we didn’t have to spend a ton of money on DeBeers telling us what we should buy if we love each other. 

So I was pushing for moissanite.  But my fiancee ended up surprising me with a diamond, which is amazing!  But I am having a hard time because I was sort of set on Moissy.

So congrats for going for it.  I would totally have done the same.

I’ve only had very positive responses too! I think as long as people don’t feel you’re dissing diamond (since that’s what most people have), they are totally receptive to the idea of you choosing something else.

That’s great 🙂 everyone I have told has also been very interested in the stone. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out how to bring it up though, so sometimes I don’t get the opportunity. But when I do,it’s cool 🙂

That’s awesome! We are looking into purchasing moissanite as well, so it’s good to hear others share the positive side of the story 🙂

At first I was weary of moissanites, but that was of course before I learned as much as possible about them. Now, I will never ever even think of wanting a diamond, for anything not just an engagement ring. I was worried at first about what family and friends would think and say, but I don’t care! I will proudly exclaim that I have a moissanite! 🙂
