Do others know your ring is moissanite? If so, could this be where the insecurity is coming from? Could his friend getting engaged with a diamond have sparked a sense of inferiority because he didn’t get you one? If you haven’t told others that your ring isn’t a diamond, you could mention that no one else even knows, so there isn’t any point in changing it sense you love it.

Don’t tell me twice that you want to buy me a new ring! lol j/k

I understand you love your ring and you’d rather him not spend the money. It doesn’t sound like he’ll budge. So what I would do is realize this is very important to him try to understand he wants to do it the tradional way (not that there is anything wrong with Moissy) but maybe he feels bad you’re not wearing a real stone and it would make him feel more satisfied if he did.

Now the diamond doesn’t have to be huge. Have you tired Blue Nile? They have great prices and quality. Maybe you can chose the diamond and he can pick a setting for you? or the other way around. Sit down with him and set a budget and tell him what you are comfortable with him spending.

Your ring’s gorgeous!

Have you been pointing out all the time how pretty it is?  I know you love it, but does he catch you staring at it & stuff?  SO is a little embarrassed about the fact that my sapphire isn’t “real”.  But in different lighting I’ll say stuff like “ooo, look how pretty it looks in this light” or “wow, it’s so sparkly”.  I’ll stare at it, doting type things that really make it annoyingly obvious how in love with it I am.  I can tell he has a sense of pride about the ring now because I’m so so in love with it.  

Another compromise could be for him to get you a diamond wedding band.

Your ring is lovely.

 

Ask him to put all those $ towards a lovely romantic holiday as you are quite happy with your moissanite!

if he is really set on a new ring, maybe he can get you a new moissanite one and you could get yours reset in a necklace or something?
