    I honestly don’t care if anyone knows about my moissanite wedding band. I don’t have anything to prove. I tell people about it, but only if it seems appropriate to the topic being discussed at the time. I don’t go around volunteering the information, just like how most people don’t go around saying “my ring is a diamond.”

    I can see why some people want to try to pass theirs off as diamonds, but it’s too bad that there are such shallow judgemental people in the world that moissanite or CZ owners feel the need to lie about it.

    I have a diamond, but if I had a moissy I’m not sure… I don’t think I’d go out of my way to say, “its a moissanite” so maybe that would just lead people to assume its a diamond. But if someone came out and asked then I’d tell them what it was. I guess I would just find it awkward to randomly blurt out what it is when no one is really asking lol.

    @adoc86:  +1. Generally people just say, “nice ring” or other generic comments. I’ve never heard someone say, “what is that?!”

    @GelaMac:  No one IRL has ever heard of Moissy.  In 8 years of wearing Moissy, no one has ever commented on my ring or asked whether it was a diamond.  So no worries about that!

    I am one of those that does volunteer the info.  Not if it is weird, like I am paying for something at the store, someone says “pretty ring!” in passing.  In that case I say thanks and  go about my business.  But if there is time and someone has come up to be to say something, I always tell them, and I tell them about the stone and where to get one.  I don’t really care what people think.  And only one time has anyone lost interest because I said it was not a diamond.  Every other time, they have been even more excited to learn that it is affordable.  People that like jewelry tend to be open to moissy for things like right hand rings and earrings, even if they are set on a diamond for their ering.  At least in my experience.

    I don’t partiularly care if someone wants to lie about their ring…that’s on them. But I always thought it was direspectful to their FI/DH. He bought that for you…why do you need to lie about what it is and make it seem like something it isnt? Aren’t your proud of it, and what it represents?

    So few people IRL even comment on my rings (diamond ering or Moissy *ering*) even though they’re both decent sized. I think beyond these boards, no one cares as we do.

    My family, sure, they know I wear moissy. Others, if they say “oh, pretty,” I say, “thank you.” there have been times when I’ve explained about moissy if they’re inquisitive about it. And they have been shocked to hear it’s not a diamond.

    I don’t have a moissanite, so no actual first-hand experience. But, whenever this topic comes up I always find myself asking why it would ever come up.

    I don’t think that if I had a moissanite I would lie. But truth is I doubt it would ever come up. Ever. Unless I offered up the info.

    People on weddingbee get really into diamond/ stone details, clarities, size, simulant or not etc. This just does not happen in the real world, in my experience, lol.

    @sara_tiara:  I’m married 25 years. (I was a teen bride, haha)  This ring, or any ring for that matter, cannot possibly represent what our marriage is. Times and styles change over that many years, if you love jewelry as a lot of us do, than you’re bound to tire of the ering anyway. 😉

    If I had known about moissy before ring shopping I probably would have picked out a moissy ring instead. I wouldn’t tell someone “oh yeah, it’s a moissy” if they just told me it was a pretty ring. However, if they called it a diamond or asked me about the stone I wouldn’t lie about it.
