bluehope:  +1.

it’s a beautiful ring but if you want a forever ring, I think being gentle but direct with your Fiance sooner might save pain later down the line.

Congrats on your engagement, it’s a pretty ring and you don’t have to answer anyone’s questions or justify your choices. If you are unhappy or uncomfortable with the ring because you don’t like it or wanted something different, then sit your Fiance down and discuss it with him. Yours and his opinions are the only ones that count.

Congrats Bee.

Congrats! To be honest, if anyone has the nerve to ask you, they deserve the following response:

“Wow, that was a classless question.” 

Then move on and don’t answer it. It’s no ones business!

Most people aren’t going to register that it’s not a diamond. However, if you’re uncomfortable with the fact that it’s a cz, that’s another matter, and I totally understand. It’s not a question of being unappreciative, your concerns are pretty understandable. Don’t be hard on yourself.

I actually chose my own and chose a CZ! 

Congrats on your engagement 🙂

No one would know, at least by the picture (and not in real life). A good CZ is very hard to distinguish from a diamond, especially at the distance most will view it at. As proven on this board before, there are cz’s that people have successfully passed aas diamonds. Yours is lovely and a very reasonable size and style. The trick with CZ’s is a good setting and a reasonable size (and a good quality cz).

Your ring is beautiful! I wouldn’t have known if you hadn’t said anything lol but if you are unhappy you need to tell him. Honesty is key because that will be yours forever! There are tons of diamond alternatives not just CZ.. Moissanite, morganite, white topaz, white sapphire.. You could find something else and something that makes you feel proud to sport. I have seen some stunners on etsy & for less than $1000. Congrats ! Always remember it’s the thought that counts and the effort

And also if your heart is set on a diamond check out James Allen. Their prices are reasonable!

It’s beautiful!! I doubt anyone will know — people look at the ring for about 2 seconds when you get engaged mainly to tell you how pretty it is and how happy they are for you, and I doubt anyone looks thaaaat closely, you know! I think it’s gorgeous and you should go ahead and rock it! You could always replace/upgrade down the line, but in the meantime, enjoy it and think of all the money you guys have saved!

I have said many times to my Darling Husband of almost 40 years, that I would NEVER have had a diamond OF ANY KIND if good CZs had been available when we were married.

I have excellent CZs mounted in 14k gold, and not ONE of them has clouded.

I would be proud to use ANY of my CZ rings as my ” forever” ring.

The sentiment is MUCH more mportant than a piece of rock could ever be.

ann.reid.9277:  ik,r? I wanted a highly graded CZ in 14Kyg ring for an e-ring (or a sapphire/ruby) but my groom balked. That’s the only reason I got diamonds that day. Granted, my Darling Husband is the only reason I got any jewelry that day.

shields061:  

Congratulations Bride to Bee! You have a very lovely e-ring.

I know plenty of people with non-diamond gemstones in their marital bling. You are in good company. Having said that, if your sense and sensibilities about e-rings in general is to have another style, another metal, another gemstone, or no stone at all, just discuss it with your groom. Help him to know your preferences. (I have to circle rings in magazines for my guy!)

Moreover, the e-ring is rarely the only marital bling a groom ever gifts his bride, so, patience, grasshopper.

1) Your ring is gorgeous. No worries there.

2) Nobody will know it’s not a diamond. Recently there was a thread on here where dozens of people claimed to be able to tell the difference, and I believe them, but those are people who spend way too much time on the internet staring at rings. (THAT’S RIGHT I THREW THAT SHADE.) The average joe will never notice.

3) If you’re worried about the CZ not lasting forever, which is a valid concern, gently let your fiance know that you might someday want to upgrade, simply because you would never want age and wear to tarnish this symbol of your love.

Congrats on your engagement!

What you should do is clean it with a cloth, then place it on a glass cooking pan and bake for3 hours at 350degrees. Then turn off the oven and don’t remove the ring until the oven is cool. Then clean the ring with a cloth again. This will give the cz stones a better sparkle/more depth and it won’t look as obvious fake. Also, most cz rings are stamped “cz” so don’t go letting other girls try on your ring.
