    I LOVE my moissy, I’ve had it for a while now (2+ years) and it hasn’t changed at all.  I purchased mine from a small, local master jeweler.  I never plan on changing it and I’m probably not getting a wedding band (I like the side profile too much).

    Is he weary or wary?  Because I’m weary of all these posts.

    Tell him to research it himself, or do some actual research and show it to him.  Like anything in life there are pros and cons.  Show them to him and let him decide.

    I think you meant “leery” or “wary” because “weary” means tired haha I read the title as “Im SO tired of moissanite” lol thought it was about to be a debate.

    I think moissanite is amazing. It is so gorgeous, durable, and affordable. Yes, it’s “man made”, but it’s not like they pour a molten liquid into a mold and pop out your stone. It takes 1 month to grow the crystals, then they cut them into the stones you see. It’s pretty incredible. It really comes down to what you value in a stone. I am getting moissanite because this is what I value and want in a stone:

    • “white” i.e., not pink, blue, green, etc
    • at least 1 ct 
    • doesn’t cost more than $1,000 or so (which eliminates diamonds since I need 1 ct or more)
    • won’t cloud up or change over time
    • durability (moissanite is the second hardest stone and the toughest stone)

    I recommend you see moissanite in real life before making your decision. I just visited a local jewelry store the other that has moissanite. I was stunned! I love all the rainbow light it gave off. It looked like a little strobe light to me. Some people are turned off by all that glitter, but not me. It depends what you like.

    @peachacid:  What is this even in reply to? 

     

    @WrestlersLove:  OP, I love my rings… but even though mine is enhanced at 1.25, it shows a lot of color.  That may be because it’s been winter here & overcast & cloudy since I have had it, but definitely I think it could be mistaken for a yellow stone at times.  I had someone ask me before if it was a yellow diamond.

    Just got my loose Amora moissanite that will eventually be the center stone in my engagement ring, and it is GORGEOUS. Seriously, so beautiful. SO loves it, too! And he was definitely a little skeptical at the beginning. But once he saw it, he fell in love with it, too!

     

    Temporarily stuck on a ring so I could see what it looked like with a band:

    @WrestlersLove:  Diamond Nexus is CZ. If you want CZ, that’s great, but don’t get ripped off by Diamond Nexus.
