    I’d rather a sapphire than a diamond or a moissanite.

    Moissanite. I just like the look better. I do really love emerald too, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    If money is no issue, then I vote a quality diamond all the way. Moissanite is lovely, though, and I definitely want some earrings.

    Assuming all is equal (i.e. well cut, etc), between a diamond and moissanite, a diamond. 

    But I would also be thrilled with a pigeon’s blood ruby, or a velvety blue sapphire, or a pad sapphire….there are just way too many pretty stones out there ๐Ÿ™‚

    Def diamond.  I like moissanite, but I wouldn’t want to wear it everyday.  Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. Mine is a classic moissanite though.

    Moissanite. It seems silly to spend the ridiculous prices for a diamond.

    I have a few questions for you to help you decide. Which do you prefer?  Do you have the budget to afford all of these options?  Do you plan on upgrading this ring in the future?  How does your fiance feel about non diamond engagement rings? Do you want a round or a fancy shaped stone.

    now my opinions.  Moissanite has improved immensely since its introduction. But the fancy shape cuts still do not look as good as diamond fancy shapes.  If you want to upgrade moissanite you will probably have to sell your old set and buy a new set.  If you want to upgrade your diamond many of the online retailers will allow you to trade in your diamond if you have the original certificate.  Check individual stores policies.  If you want a gemstone ring then sapphire and ruby are the most durable next to diamond and moissanite. You will find less of a variety of cuts in the gemstones though due to the nature gemstone crystal formations. I personally love the color of gemstones and have a diamond flanked by blue sapphires.

    For an engagement ring? Only diamond.

    Diamond  I’m not a fan of knockoffs, I prefer natural original genuine. Not to say moissanite isn’t pretty- -it is,  and budget friendly.
