There are lots of ladies on here with lots of different types of stones, not just moissys. Its rare that someone is going to say something hateful about someone elses ring.

As long as you love it, thats all that matters! Shake them haters off Wink (haha sorry! that was so 1999)

I’m not saying it’s okay, but I think it’s just a lot of confusion about Moissanite and how similar it is to Diamond. Some people don’t know/realize that Moissanite is an actually gemstone and not created to be a fake Diamond. It also seems like some with Diamonds don’t like when people pass Moissanites as Diamonds. I don’t understand that but it must be a personal reason.

If anyone looks up the history of weddings/engagement rings, you will find that engagement rings didn’t come into the picture until the late 1800’s and Diamond engagement rings didn’t come in until the 1930’s. With that said, everyone is entitled to like whatever gemstone they like for their rings. If it makes them happy, then it’s the right gemstone for them.

Yeah I don’t understand others’ desires to pass judgment on something that symbolizes another’s relationship. I really don’t. “If you don’t have something nice to say….” Lol.

I love my ring for what it is and I love that others love their rings. Wow, that wasn’t a hippy-esque post or anything. I am NOT the child of a pot-smoking hippie. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ha. But the debate, for whatever reason, can sometimes get ugly and heated and “mine is better than yours because X.” I find it irritating, and generally roll my eyes.

What thread were you referring to? I’ve looked at all the Moissanite VS Diamond I could find and didn’t see anything hateful or disrespectful. Most people on here, from what I understand are really cool about giving their opinion nicely…  Just wondering ๐Ÿ™‚

@erinleigh1: There are some, if you go way back usually. Not sure exactly which one the OP was referring to, but I *have* seen things like that on here from time to time. Unfortunately.

Ah – hense why I couldn’t find it ๐Ÿ˜› I’m too lazy to go past page one, most days.  ๐Ÿ˜›

Silly people arguin’ like it’s gonna change someone else’s mind if they shove their opinion down that someone’s throat kinda stuff? Yeah… Sadly, that’s pretty much just part of message board/forum life in general. Just gotta ignore it and move onto the next thread/topic/post.

@erinleigh1: Haha exactly. I didn’t really “see” it until I was actually trying to do some Moissy research. There were a few I was like “whoa – check yourself” in my head. haha. I never understand that in ANY situation, but especially in such a personal choice.

I think alot of times, people just like to argue for the sake of arguing. And when you put a bunch of women on one website – most of whom are in the process of planning a wedding (hello, stress!)… it’s gonna get catty!

@erinleigh1: Put “Moissanite or Diamond???? HELP!!!” in the search and you’ll be able to find it. That’s the exact name of that post.

 

@AmeliaBedelia: It is very irritating! I recently found out about Moissanite and I was trying to get some more information on it through Weddingbee, because I saw a lot of posts about it, and they all turn into “fake” fights. I am so glad I researched it though! They are so beautiful.

@walksa: Amen, sister! I love my ring, it sparkles like my FI’s eyes and it makes me happy. And it’s a moissy. The end.

It’s all personal preference. To each his own, right? Regardless, a ring is just a ring, and we should all be happy for those who make the decision to get married. It should be one of the happiest moments of their lives and NO ONE should feel entitled to pass judgments.

@walksa: I know what you mean- it totally disgusts me too… it really kills the engagement bliss buzz to log on wanting to enjoy looking at pretty jewelry & seeing people fight over the logistics of material things. All it really boils down to is money, status & this constant need to be “better” than others, have better things, etc. NOT the point of getting married people!Yell Thanks for this post.
