    lawandbeauty53:  I love that your car’s name is Prince. Is this like Prince Charming, or like The Purple One? Crossing my fingers for the latter (or a bit of both). 😉

    lawandbeauty53:  Ha! My Mom is the same way. Her emerald is worth more than my life and she rocks a 2000 Forester. Prince is an excellent name for a car. Mine is Roo.

    Ukulele4You:  lol….yeah I’m very attached to Prince..I’m not a car person they all look the same to me, but with Prince, it’s about our (imaginary) love and shared history.

    milabeehappy: agreed.

    I can’t tell the difference, and I believe the majority of people who say they can (at a glance, on somebody else’s hand) are full of it. 

    and honestly? who gives a fuck? it’s so petty.

    I like to think I can, but I’m probably wrong, with the exception of moissy ovals from C&C. There’s something off about that cut that I don’t like. Other than that, I can’t really tell, and really couldn’t care less. My mom rocks about 125k in jewelry daily if you add up her rings and earrings and such, and the lady drives a 2009 Subaru Forester. My dad drives a 2004 pickup and paid for all of that jewelry. I just love it when ppl judge books by their covers. Lol.

    I have two pairs of moissanite earrings.  Happen to have a set in today.  I think this set are FB 1 ct tw.  Here with diamond three stone e-ring and band (h and I, vs1).  I can’t tell the difference and I’ve had some moissanite since around 1999 or 2000.  Need a manicure, obviously. 🙂

    Simulants to last a lifetime? Yes.

    In the late 1980s, I “splurged” on 14Kyg 2ctw highly graded CZ earrings for ~ $100 (with tax). They still look great today. Nobody questions them. (If they did, I’d probably chuckle at their impertinence.) The earrings “match” my natural diamonds, moissies, CZs, or white sapphires jewelry. I rather wish that I got the 1ctw or 1.5ctw pair, instead, though, because I prefer smaller studs for everyday wear (I have smaller earlobes and these feel a bit on the big side). fwiw

    sillylittlebee:  Those who so boldly claim to be able to tell the difference between an Amora Ultra vs a diamond must be more talented than a jeweler in a high end store lol because not only was my Amora Ultra cleaned and examined but while handing it back to me  I was told it was stunning and an excellent cut diamond! Others have reported similar suggestions. 

    I do believe I can tell the difference if it’s a Mossy due to the rainbow effect,  flatness and the black hole. My Amora throws manly white light I have compared it to my mother’s GIA I color certified wedding rings I recently were gifted at her passing and all I can say is Wow!! So I’m not buying the I can tell its not a diamond crew lol.. Believe me it’s far from easy if it can be done at all

    heputaringonit:  boring , often mucky Volkswagen Touran here and I probably wear about £45,000 in jewellery every day. I don’t really wear designer clothes and while I fancy a Prada bag, I haven’t been able to bring myself to buy one yet and I have no ambition to have a collection of designer bags. 

    I can appreciate beautiful cars, husband has a stunning Porsche, but I don’t love them enough to want to spend the money on one for me. Other people feel the same about jewellery. I don’t see why people get so airated about what other people choose to spend their money on.

    I can tell a CZ. Other than that I’m clueless. They all look beautiful to me!
