Why don’t you consider a moissanite instead of a CZ? I;ve seen LOADS of great rings on the boards.

@rochelle.campbell.16:  Have you checked out ashadiamonds.com? I have heard wonderful things about them. Plenty of the bees on here have ashas and are thrilled with the quality.

There’s several ladies that have white sapphires (and other gemstones) for engagement rings, and they are amazingly beautiful!

Cz’s are great stones.  The only way I think they’ll look “fake” is if you get something big.  If you’re interested in that route, try berricle, they have lovely cz rings.  The only downside to cz’s are that they’re 8 on the Moh’s scale and porous, so their durability’s good, but not great, and they’ll get cloudy without regular cleaning.

 

If you decide not to go cz route, there’s moissy, which is a great option.  Another one’s gemstones, especially lab created.  I have a lab created sapphire from Better Than Diamond, and it’s beautiful, plus cost a fraction of what an equivalen natural sapphire would.  Lab created rubies, emeralds, and sapphires oftentimes are better quality than their natural counterparts, or at least are the same quality as crazy expensive natural stones.

When I stopped by my jeweler last week he told me that well-made CZ’s can’t be distinguished by even the most experienced jewelers with microscopes. He just had someone resize a CZ ring and he had to use an official diamond tester gadget in order to tell it wasn’t a diamond.  If you don’t have the money to spend on a diamond, I would definitely say go for CZ! Personally, the childish girl in me loves diamonds, but logically I don’t think it makes any sense to buy a diamond over any of the other equally fabulous and cheaper options. (Of course, I have to admit being a hypocrite because my ering has several small diamonds…) Just my two cents!

A lot of bees seem to really like Berricle.  I want to get my stunt ring from them.  Perhaps other bees wish to share some of their pics 😉

Look up Ashas, they are fairly good I’ve heard! Or look on Etsy as well, you get some awesome gemstone e-rings there for good prices

 @rochelle.campbell.16:  I do 🙂  I got my stand in ring from Berricle, and I really like it.  These are not the best pics, but it is pretty and quite sparkly.  The metal feels much lighter than my 18K white gold ring, but it is still pretty nice quality.  I’d say if you want to get a ring now, go with a smaller stone.  This one is the.46 carat cushion set, and it looks very believable.  Then your fiance can save up for your future ring, and you can “upgrade” then 🙂

I highly recommend berricle for your needs.  Here is my stand-in/temp ring until I decide on my final ring.
