Very pretty! It doesn’t look like a diamond though.
It is nice, but no, it doesn’t look like a diamond.
Looks like CZ
It doesn’t reflect light like a diamond does. It looks a little…flat.
added a picture with better light!
It’s pretty! But I agree with other PPs, it looks a little flat. Doesn’t look like a diamond to me, but honestly no one would know the difference just in passing.
I just wanted to say I love that flavor coffee! Carmel vanilla, so good! 🙂 sorry to thread jack
why doesn’t it look like a diamond to you guys? What do you mean by “flat”? Is it too glassy?
This is only one picture taken with my iPad. so not the greatest quality!
My Boyfriend or Best Friend took it to the president of Ream Jewlers in our area today. He said it was better than my moissanite stone and it will look gorgeous when it’s all done
I think you need to stop obsessing over whether your non diamond stones look like diamond or not. Some people will be able to tell that it’s not a diamond. If passing off your stone as a diamond is your main priority and I think you should either A) accept the non diamond for what it is, a mossianite or a CZ (and I love Moissy so much so no hate here!) or B) get a small diamond that you can afford.
However, people on the internet seem to get huffy about ‘knowing’ if something is a real diamond or not, where as someone on the street who sees your ring probably won’t be able to in the normal time people look at other people’s engagement rings. Go with which ever stone you think is the prettiest! Personally, I love Moissy, and have plans to get a moissy stone, but will not be passing it off as a diamond.
@cirk: I do accept my stones for what they are. Diamonds are beyond my price range or my desire to involve debt. I was merely asking the bee community on this board to look at my stone. I think it’s a fabulous CZ. It looks just like a diamond to me. I’m just happy about it and writing here!
I own a 1.1 tcw round cut diamond 18k white gold ring. I held the two up, and to my (and everyeone else’s…unless you’re a jeweler WITH a loooper), can not tell the difference. I think this forum has given women on here the misconception that they are diamond experts, when in fact you can not tell through a computer screen (when you take into acount the quality of the picture, angle, lighting, and then how your monitor distorts it).
Although, I do hope it fools some people! I’ve always lusted after diamonds (not the ethical or financial implications they involve though….)
@CollegeBee3: oh I agree about the whole “I KNOW HOW TO TELL A DIAMOND BECAUSE I LOOKED ON THE INTNERNET!” phenomen that a lot of people on the Bee have. It’s so silly to me,and makes me roll my eyes. I’m just saying that all of your posts are regarding rings looking like diamond that aren’t, and was commenting on it.
I have no opinion on if it’s a good CZ or not, I like shiny, sparkly things regardless of their molecule make up, and think it’s a pretty stone! I like moissy because I love the refraction rate, but I’ve never seen a good quality CZ so I have no first hand knowledge of it as a stone aside from cheap Claire’s ones!
Enjoy your stone and your rings! what kind of setting have you chosen to put it in?
Soon to be fiance and I agreed that we both love rose gold on my skin tone. We’re getting the setting custom made by the president of Ream Jewelers in our area. it’s going to be 14k rose gold band with 6 white gold prongs with the 2.0 ct equivalent stone set in a gorgeous white gold basket. Bling bling 😀
