    If I would have went with a traditional ring, I would have no problem saving money and going with a beautiful ring like this!  We ended up buying an antique which I love so this didn’t come up.  I love the way these look!!!

    I would wear one as a right hand cocktail ring. But no, not for an engagement ring. I am a diamond girl. It was the only acceptable stone for my e-ring. I tried to make myself want an alternative stone, but none felt right to me.

    @aquaelle: I have heard the ASHAs cloud up over time. As long as I had the resources to replace the stone if it came down to it, I would be happy to wear one! I’ve seen some beautiful pictures of them!

    No, nothing against them. The rings are beautiful. I’m just a diamond girl. Plus Fi is super proud, he wouldn’t have felt “right” if he gave me anything other then a diamond engagement ring. I’ve been schooling him on the different gemstones & how ANY ring can be an ering!!

    No, I don’t like the feeling behind trying to “fool” people that something is what it isn’t (in this case, with the main objective to look like I spent much more than I did). I particularly would not want that sentiment associated with my engagement/wedding jewelry. 

    I also don’t prefer artificial materials when I can help it, especially not in fine jewelry. I do, however, like many lower-cost natural colored gemstones.

    Nope, I like my diamond. And I would feel really icky lying about my engagement ring. I’d probably go with a colored stone if I couldn’t get a diamond.

    I have just a plain CZ. No one can tell the difference. My only problem with you post is the not telling anyone. I’m pretty open that it’s a CZ (execpt from my really judgemental family and friends of my Mother). I’m proud that we were able to take a trip to Japan rather than have a stone sit on my finger.

    @aquaelle:  No, I wouldn’t wear one. I see any diamond simulant the same way as I see knockoffs. I don’t like knockoffs.

    I can see a reason for buying an asha… like you’re planning on putting a real diamond in your Tacori setting when you can afford it… but I wouldn’t even want to do that personally. I don’t like fooling people.

    I’d just feel like a fraud. 

    I love diamonds… always have. If I can’t afford the real thing then I won’t wear them.

    I wouldn’t mind it if it were for financial reasons! They are beautiful! But I would NOT lie and say it was diamond.. I bought one for myself for fun a while ago and have been asked if its diamond and I answer honestly, because I hate lying! But my FI wouldn’t want me to have an e ring that wasn’t real diamond. It’s just how he is! 🙂
