I looked at and tried on diamonds for months and months and just didn’t fall in love with any of them. Then I came across pink moissanite and became slightly obesessed. I knew that was what I wanted and, even though I’ve only had it for a month now, I don’t see myself regretting it, ever. I decided to pick what I love and not worry about what anyone else would think. Do what makes you happy 🙂

If you love it, go for it! My e-ring is not a diamond (blue topaz) but everyone tells me that it looks like it was custom made for me & mostly people say they love how unique it is 🙂 depending on the shape of your rings, you can always get a thin eternity band later on if you want some sparkle 🙂

I don’t regret the non-diamond aspect, I regret the morganite I got. Not so much regret, because I ordered online and wasn’t 100% sure of what I was getting. But it’s sort of poorly cut and so pale that it looks more like glass, and some have asked if it’s cz!




I will be switching it out with an aquamarine some time hopefully soon. 




RE just gold, no gemstone at all? I might get bored of it quickly. There is so much to see when looking closely at your gemstone, not so much straight gold. Just me though. 

Are you talking about a wedding band and not an e-ring? I can’t tell. In that case, I’d say not so important, im fact the sparkly e-ring and sparkly band can easily become tooooo much

@deucesarewild1:  Lol i thought they were talking about wedding bands then i see all these posts about e rings.

OP if you ARE talking about wedding bands, it depends on taste.  I’m getting a unique looking one with small diamonds, BUT I also saw one that had no diamonds but lots of beautiful detail. Have you tried any on? Definitely helps, to me it’s like any other thing I wear- some look better in person and others are lovely but not for me.

If your talking about e-rings I would need some sparkle. If your talking about a wedding band, a lot of times I prefer the plain ones.

@ChellFish22:  my engagement ring is diamond but I just wanted to chime in that I have friends with all-precious metal rings and they and I love them. I especially like the ones with intricate metalwork myself. (I like detail in the engagement ring.)

I’ll be getting a classic all-precious metal wedding band. It rings out ‘married’ to me, clear as a bell.

@ChellFish22:  That’s a nice combo! I like it a lot. Your engagement ring already has the sparkle factor. More is overkill, IMO.

I have a simple, plain, gold band.  It’s what Fiance wanted and it was very important to both of us that our wedding bands matched.  The only difference is the width (his is 6mm, mine is 3mm).

@pinksunshine:  I absolutely LOVE your ring! Im currently begging for pink moissanite for my engagement ring. Fiance thinks I will regret pink if i got it, but im glad someone out there proves that I wouldnt!

I always thought plain, no gemstone wedding bands were normal.  The one you posted is beautiful, and you can wear it on its own without it looking odd, and it’s really delicate.  Why would that be boring?
