well if you want something to look awesome for years, I’d definitely go with 14k gold & moissanite (or diamond) over sapphire in silver & plated gold. sapphire is pretty tough, but it doesn’t sparkle very much, so if that’s what you’re looking for go with moissanite. moissanite is THE sparkler, and it’s tougher than diamond (hardness is the only aspect diamond wins in; moissanite is actually less prone to chipping/stands higher heat/will last a lifetime).

I do like the first design, with the sapphire, but keep looking and you might find the same in moissanite!

I like the second one as I think it will hold up the test of time more than the first, it will sparkle more, and it looks the most like a RHR or anniversary ring.

As a proud Moissanite owner I have to say Moissy is worth the extra money! The way the ring sparkles is unreal! Plus you would be better off with 14 ct white gold than anything plated (for the long run)

Moissy is for sure really sparkly, so if it’s the sparkle you’re after – DEFINITELY that one. I don’t find that white sapphires sparkle nearly as much as any sparkly stones you’d compare them to. If you don’t mind suggestions, I’d suggest looking into Asha. To me, it looks the most *like* diamond with a significantly cheaper price tag.

Info/Comparisons can be found on the Better Than Diamond forums or simply google it. πŸ™‚

@Tif: Then you should probably go with Moissy. Asha is a diamond-coated CZ basically, though I’m sure there are better ways to put it. Though a Moissy is not a “lab created diamond,” it’s a separate gem altogether. As is white sapphire. I don’t think there is a such thing as a lab created diamond, though of course, I’m not sure or overly involved in such discussions usually so I’ll leave that to the knowledgeable bees.

Good luck.

asha is CZ with diamond stuff on the surface. I personally prefer moissanite best of all for the extra sparkle/durability. totally worth it. if it was the same price as diamonds, I’d still get moissanite.

good choice! go for it. I’ve only heard good things about moissaniteco (actually placed my first order with them for a few christmas gifts! can’t wait), so I’m sure you’ll be thrilled!

I’m probably biased because my e-ring is moissanite and I adore it, but I really like the second ring you posted. Believe me when I tell you that moissanite sparkles like crazy…I can’t even think of anything I’ve ever seen that’s as sparkly as my moissy! If you’re looking for sparkle and durability, go with moissanite. Moissanite stones all have a lifetime warranty that they will not change their optical properties, so there’s some peace of mind on that. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a white sapphire in person, so I can’t speak to that from personal experience, but I’ve seen ladies on the bee say that they are more icy and less fire-y than say a diamond or a moissanite.
