I want a sapphire in my ring. I honestly don’t care if it’s a diamond or not, it’s about what the ring represents, not what it’s made of.

My Fiance and I picked my ring out together. It’s a .5 carat moisanite ring, emerald cut. I love it, and think it’s a beautiful ring. I grew up in the south were the “keeping up with the Jones'” culture is pretty intense… but I’m glad we went moisanite becuase of 1) the cost (our ring is BEAUTIFUL and it only cost us around $600), 2) the environmental and human rights impact (the benefit of a lab created stone!), and 3) the story of moisanite is so cool!

Most people at  my work think I have a diamond. Others that I’m closer to I tell them its moissanite. My supervisor especially is excited to try one for herself because I’ve talked about moissanite years ago amd about how I wanted one. Whether people really think its diamond or not doesnt bother me. I like what I like and that’s that. So far no one has questioned me about it but if they did I’d just tell the truth 🤷‍♀️

I understand what you’re saying, I don’t like to educate every single person that compliments my ring on what my stone is. My ring has an Amora at the center and I adore it! My family and close friends know what it is but I didnt share that right off the bat. Only one friend asked what it was because in comparison to her diamond, mine has MUCH more fire. This friend also knew I didnt want a diamond. 

With everyone else, they were shocked when I said it’s not a diamond. Including my jeweler – every time I go in for cleaning and inspection, they show me my “diamond” under the jeweler scope thing to show me the slight inclusions. And when i tell them it’s not a diamond, they’re amazed and usually it sparks a conversation with customers in the shop. I’m proud to explain what I have and I love the fire and brilliance of my stone! But I don’t see the need to explain what it is to every person that compliments it. 

In short, MOST people cannot tell that my stone is not a diamond until I say it isn’t (or at least they don’t admit it). However, I don’t lie about what I have and am proud of it. I understand the hesitation of being judged, but anyone that judges you because of a ring has skewed priorities in life. Good luck bee!!

In my experience, the people who’ve gone through ring shopping themselves are often able to tell, while those who haven’t can’t. 

I certainly wouldn’t have been able to tell until I started looking into it myself, whereas now I can.

If you’re worried about people being judgy (not that you should be, but that’s another issue), many people who have done their research enough to tell its moissanite will also know all the great reasons to choose it.
