    I don’t have one yet, but I am all about the moisy!!I have been thinking about this for a while too, I think I will tell people if hey ask about it, but otherwise I’m not about to shovem y ring in everyone’s face and tell them it’s moisonite. I know some people are going to silently pass some kind of judgement that it’s not a diamond, so I’ll tell people all about it if they ask.It also saves me from getting into debates with people about the ethics of diamond.

    I am chosing a moisonite for ethical reasons, I could have a huge ass diamond if I wanted, but it’s just not my style. With what I have learned about gem mining in most coutries, I just feel better about a moisonite. And they’re freaking BEAUTIFUL!!

    I usually don’t tell people unless it’s brought up. I’m not hiding the fact that it’s moissy, but I used to know a few people who would, like, insult the hell out of me and my fiance if they knew it wasn’t a diamond. 

    I’ve actually told quite a few people that it’s a moissanite because I’m really proud of the fact that we got a great-looking ring for under $800. And a moissy is also “greener” and conflict free.

    Here’s mine:

    Meh, I’ve told anyone who I actually talked about the specs with. If some random stranger compliments me on my “diamond,” I just say thanks. My family and friends all know that it’s a moissanite and no one’s made fun of us or made me feel inferior (funny, that only happens online!) for not having a diamond. I never had any sort of attachment to having a diamond, I just wanted a pretty clear sparkly stone without my husband dropping thousands of dollars. I read about moissanite on reddit sometime in 2010 and was instantly sold.

    My precious:

    My ring hasn’t arrived yet but I’ve already shared with nearest and dearest where we’ve ordered it from and shown pics. I couldn’t care care less what others think! Wire a chunk of charcoal with tin foil if you want, it’s your ring and YOU have to love it!!! Why try to pass it off as something it’s not? It’s beautiful and meaningful in its own right.

    I don’t bring it up anytime someone says, “Hey, what a pretty ring!” but everyone that matters knows what it is.

    I don’t tell random strangers, but I do tell people I know a) because it’s awesome but b) because we wouldn’t have spent £6k on a ring.

    Years down the line, I don’t think I’ll say anything but I doubt people will ask when I’m not newly engaged.

    I don’t own a moissy although I would love to! I’m a chemist and love that moissanite is similar in composition to diamond and has it’s own properties. I would be loud and proud if I had one!!

    My dream moissy ring:

    I am loud and proud to my family and friends, but only mention it to strangers if they ask what type of stone it is, or mention diamond, or ask how much it cost. Otherwise, it feels awkward to bring up. If they say, “You have a beautiful ring,” I just say thanks and move on.

    I’m loud and proud with family, friends and people I know pretty well but I won’t just mention it to anyone that says that I have a pretty ring unless they ask for details.

    I’m thinking about getting a moissy in palladium for a second set, and when I do, everyone who is important to me and anyone who asks about my ring will know that it’s a moissanite.  I will have no qualms with telling people about moissanite.  It’s too pretty for people to NOT know!
