One person asked me if my ring was “real,” i.e. a diamond (it is, and I don’t know why she asked b/c it’s not huge–.9 carats). I told her it was! I like diamonds enough to definitely tell a difference when diamonds, moissys, and /or CZ are side-by-side. It’s harder to tell a moissy by itself, but I recognize it by the colored flashes (2x more refraction than a diamond). My diamond hardly shows colored flashes unless it’s under colored light.

Yes, but just with coloured stones.

Nope.  I’ve never had anyone ask me any details about my rings.  I have had lots of compliments on it though.

I have a moissy, no one has ever asked, they just say it’s gorgeous and I thank them 🙂

@walnutgirl:  No, I’ve never had any questions about it.  I think my ring is pretty obviously a diamond ring, though.  I could imagine getting questions if I’d chosen a colored diamond (such as fancy yellow, blue, black, etc.).

I’ve received a few compliments on it in real life (not including the initial oohs and ahhhs I got from friends when we first got engaged), but no one has ever asked me about the size, whether or not it’s a diamond, or anything similar.

I always assume a ring is a diamond.  I figure if someone wants to tell me what kind of stone it is, then they’ll tell me. I can’t believe people ask – how rude!

i have a 2ct and my aunt who speaks without thinking often times asked, at the dinner table at a big family dinner when my Fiance and I first got engaged, “did you bring it to a jewler to check if it’s real??” As if he would try to deceive me or something….It was quite rude and my Fiance was very offended. secretly i think there’s some level of jealousy, even though my mother insists the aunt didnt mean anything by it.

I’ve had one person on here ask me what kind of stone it is but not in person. I am guilty of asking about colored stones sometimes though since there’s so much variety in those and I like hearing about different ones. Otherwise I don’t think too hard about it, they’ll tell me if they want me to know.

I have a lot of customers complement my ring. Mine is a solitaire moissanite, but everyone assumes it’s a diamond. I’ve never had anyone ask if it’s “real”.

I have a small diamond. No one has ever asked. I wouldn’t care if they did.

I have never been asked…people always just assume it’s a diamond.

No one has ever asked, but I always blurt out “it’s not a diamond!”  I love my moissy and I’m proud to wear it.

Last week at work a woman asked me what kind of stone was in my ring. I replied that it was a diamond (I wear a healthy-sized emerald cut) and she said “Oh! It was a weird angle–I thought it was metallic colored…”

She was the exception rather than the rule because no one else has ever asked.

I work as a receptionist at a busy place (I see 1000 people over the course of my shift) where I see a variety of rings all the time. Honestly, it’s hard to get an appreciation for anyone’s ring, much less what kind of clear stone it is, when it’s a short interaction and people are moving quickly.
