Honestly, before I was on the Bee, I didn’t know what moissanite was. So no I wouldn’t have known. But now that I am and I’ve seen many beautiful moissanite rings and beautiful diamond rings, I can tell the difference. But I don’t think it matters, the ring is on your finger, not their’s.

anonymousbee001 :  Yes, I do think that. Some of the responses are so unbelievably harsh and unkind that I assume ruining someone’s joy must be the only motivation. I guess the alternative would be that at some point being petty is just being miserable. Perhaps they just can’t help spewing out what is in them.

loveez :  I have a large stand-in that I wear daily for work/commute/evenings out where I’m drinking. I’ve never had anyone ask if it’s real. I’ve had one person see me clean it and then comment ‘so that’s why it’s so sparkly’ which might have meant she knew, but maybe she didn’t and just thought I cleaned it loads. 

I think most people want a clear stone because it goes with everything and looks classic. If you want to avoid questions then go with a size that fits your lifestyle and budget, but if you want to go mega then go mega and shug off the haters. Everyone loves to have an opinion – life is too short to listen to them all!

loveez :  90% of people will not be able to tell, and most won’t really care anyway. The knowledge & recognition of moissy on the Bee is extremely skewed relative to the real world. Congrats on your new ring!

my first initial reaction to this is “why the fuck would anyone care”. honestly, i probably couldnt tell the difference but even if i did, i wouldnt give a shit. its not my ring. im not wearing it. i didnt buy it. its not paying my bills. end of story. this is one of those crazy judgemental things that i can not stand. i just cant. if you are the type of person to look at someones ring and say to yourself or out loud ‘thats not a real diamond” and turn your nose up at it, im sorry to say but you are a shitty human being. buy what makes you happy girl. screw what people think.

My boss for sure thought it was a diamond. I’m not sure what other people think. Most probably assume it is. Ones who looked really close when I first got engaged made me nervous because I thought they could probably tell but they didn’t say anything. In Walmart it looks just like CZ. It sparkles differently than a diamond. But the majority of the time it appears to be a diamond ring. I have recently received my wedding bands and the Moissanite (center stone) paired with all of the diamonds surrounding it definitely showed that it was a different stone while in Walmart. In natural light you can’t tell it’s differnet.

I’d never heard of moissanite stones before WB and before then (and still now) I’d have had a hard time telling the difference between a diamond and any other clear gem stone, CZs included. I might wonder if it is a diamond when the stone looks unexpectedly large given the couples’ financial circumstances, but that’s all.

WB brides tend to have much larger diamonds than I ever see on the women around me, anyway! 

hissoon :  those are absolutely gorgeous wedding bands, they go so perfectly with your engagement ring.

I am always impressed by the people on these boards that can tell what people can and can’t afford based on their purses, or the size of house they live in or the cars they drive. Where I live that is not an indicator of how much money you have or if you can afford luxury items. Some of the richest people I know have old cars and some of the poorest have designer purses. Personally the whole “ring that fits your lifestyle” theory I don’t buy into.
